When Bea Alonzo was described as “daring” and “brave” in the upcoming movie The Mistress, we thought of kissing and bed scenes with her leading man John Lloyd Cruz or baring more skin that what we have already seen. Little did we know that while those scenes we thought of are true, Bea took it up to a whole new level.
The Kapamilya actress plays the role of Sari in the movie. Sari has an old benefactor named Rico, a married man played by Ronaldo Valdez.
The 64-year-old veteran actor revealed that he has kissing and bed scenes with Bea in the movie! And now we believe that a whole new Bea is being showcased in the Star Cinema production.
Ronaldo also said that he was very careful not to be thought of as taking advantage of the sensitive scenes, but admitted that he got excited when he learned about his role.
Hilda Koronel is playing Regina, the wife of Rico. The movie also serves as Hilda’s comeback in the movies after sometime of being in a hiatus.
John Lloyd Cruz, on the other hand, plays the role of JD, Sari’s suitor. And knowing how good an actor is John Lloyd when it comes to interpreting his roles, Bea also said that her scenes in the movie became lighter because of John Lloyd’s generosity when it comes to giving emotions and reactions to her scenes even if he’s not in it.
“He’s very supportive,” Bea stated. “Mas lalo akong nagpupursige kasi iniisip ko siya nga, he’s on top right now, halos lahat ng award-giving bodies kinilala na siya, pero hindi siya nagkakampante. Madadala ka kapag makikita mo kung paano siya nagko-concentrate, nagre-research, at kung gaano kalaki ‘yung dedication na binibigay niya sa trabaho.”
The movie also the 10th anniversary of Bea and John Lloyd’s love team which started in the television series Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay.
Directed by Olivia Lamasan, The Mistress is showing on September 12, 2012 in cinemas nationwide.
