After doing more than twenty movies since 2003, Bea Alonzo remains passionate about her craft.
In an interview with Boy Abunda for Cinema One, the "Eerie" star revisited the role that made the biggest impact on her perspective as an actress. She revealed, “When it was offered to me I really had that hunger and thirst for something new.”
The role, of course, was Sari in "The Mistress" which the Movie Queen topbilled alongside John Lloyd Cruz and veteran actor Ronaldo Valdez in 2012.
"Hindi siya 'yung normal na boy-meets-girl na nagagawa kong pelikula noon. Bukod sa first time kong makakatrabaho si Inang Olivia Lamasan, naisip ko 'I'm ready for this'. Na-prepare ako for that role."
She hopes that her future projects will continue to live up to her work in “The Mistress.” She said, "I just want to be surprised. I feel like I'm more open to newer stories now. Also to different genres and working with different actors unlike before."
The award-winning actress also shared that she feels more confident now and more focused on improving her skills rather than on pleasing the people around her.
"I don't want that to affect my art and my future experiences in doing movies."
"Eerie" opens in cinemas nationwide this March 27. It also stars legendary actress Charo Santos-Concio and is directed by Mikhail Red.
