Bea Alonzo In Her Most Daring And Most Mature Performance To Date

MOVIES ABOUT infidelity have always been big in local films, from the time of “Sapagkat Kami’y Tao Lamang” that started a series of love triangle flicks starring Lolita Rodriguez, Marlene Dauden and the late Eddie Rodriguez, the best of which was the original “Kapag Puso’y Sinugatan” directed by Fely Crisostomo. Last year, “No Other Woman” became a blockbuster and this year, it’s predicted that “The Mistress” will follow in its footstep, what with it being the reunion of the John Lloyd Cruz-Bea Alonzo love team, with Bea giving her most daring and mature performance to date.

As Sari, Bea falls in love with Rico (Ronaldo Valdez) even if he’s very much older than her and is married to Regina (Hilda Koronel.) A conflict occurs when a young man named JD (John Lloyd) meets her and persistently pursues her even if he knows she’s having an affair with a married man.

“Very challenging ang role kasi Tito Ronaldo was my father in ‘Betty La Fea’, tapos ngayon, lovers na kami rito at may kissing scene pa kami,” says Bea. “Big challenge for me ang role kasi I have to go out of my comfort zone na dati, laging safe at mabait na character ang ginagampanan ko. Dito, nakikiapid ako sa asawa ng iba. At pumatol ako sa matanda hindi dahil sa pera kundi because I’m really in love with him. Ito na ang pinakamatapang na ginawa ko and it’s nice to have such great co-stars as Ms. Hilda, Tito Ronaldo and of course, John Lloyd na ten years ko nang kapareha in films and teleseryes. Familiar na ko kay Lloydie and that helps a lot, but he continues to surprise me dahil lagi siyang may bagong pinakikita’t ibinibigay sa eksena.”
