Vic Sotto gets Bea Alonso as leading lady

VIC SOTTO is glad to be back in Star Cinema with “Pak, Pak, My Dr. Kwak” where he plays a quack doctor. After Kristine Hermosa (now his daughter in law), he’s getting another young ABS-CBN star as leading lady, Bea Alonzo, who at 23, is even younger than his own kids Danica and Oyo. How’s Bea considering she’s better known in drama? “Kapag magaling ang artista, di mo poproblemahin kahit saan mo siya paartehin,” says Vic. “Sumabak si Bea rito for the first time in an all out comedy and she’s good. On cue pati ang pagtulo ng laway niya in one scene. Natural yun at di special effects. Magkalaban kami rito kasi I represent faith healing at siya, totoong doctor representing science. Ang nag-mediate sa conflict namin, si Zaijian Jaranilla who plays an angel na naparusahan sa langit kaya pinababa sa lupa to do a mission. My last film with Star Cinema was ‘Hindi Pa Tapos ang Labada, Darling’ with Dina (Bonnevie) in 1994. Maliliit pa mga anak namin nun, ngayon may mga asawa na. I’m glad to be back in Star Cinema and I will be back for more.”

So he’ll be appearing in ABS shows to promote it? “Yes. Lumabas na kami ni Bea sa TV Patrol, then I’ll guest sa ASAP and The Buzz. Si Bea naman will guest in ‘Eat Bulaga’. It’s really exciting kasi it’s something different na mapagsama-sama ang various stars from different networks in one movie like this so I’m sure viewers will enjoy this. Mga kasama kong Kapuso rito are Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola and Paolo Ballesteros. Mga kapamilya naman sina Bea, Pokwang, Zaijian and Xyriel Manabat who plays Bea’s kid sister.”
