Bea Alonzo just had her last shooting day for the upcoming movie “Eerie” on Sunday and she is already having separation anxiety.

Speaking to ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, the actress praised the Mikhail Red film as one of her best movies.

“I can’t really share much kasi medyo may pagka mystery-thriller siya so hindi ko alam kung hanggang saan 'yung pwede kong mai-share sa inyo. But definitely, isa ito sa pinakamaganda na nagawa ko. It’s something that I would watch,” she said.

Based on the photos she posted on Instagram, Alonzo will play a nun. 

“Medyo complex 'yung character. Medyo mahirap siya ipaliwanag but isa akong guidance counselor dito na nagso-solve ng isang krimen sa isang all-girls school. Doon mangyayari ang mga kapana-panabik na mga eksena,” she explained.

But more than the plot, Alonzo said what makes the movie truly memorable for her is the fact that she was able to act with ABS-CBN chief content officer Charo Santos-Concio.

“Minsan nasa gitna kami ng mga eksena, hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala na siya 'yung kaeksena ko. Iba pala talaga siguro kapag ganun na karami ang pelikula na nagawa mo at siguro iba na nakatrabaho niya sila Mike de Leon, mga great actors of her generation, and of the new generation. Parang less 'yung work for me because parang nagfi-feed na lang ako sa energy niya,” she said.

By just observing how Santos-Concio acts, Alonzo said she already learned a lot from the screen veteran.

“Hindi siya 'yung tipo ng actress kasi na nag-i-impose kung ano 'yung gusto niyang gawin mo sa isang eksena. But siguro mas marami lang akong na-observe sa acting process niya na dadalahin ko hanggang sa future projects ko,” she said.

“Like sa observation ko, ang laki laking bagay nung voice acting talaga. How she delivers her lines, kahit kapag reading pa lang, nararamdaman mo na kahit wala pang emotions. 'Yung pagputol niya ng mga linya, kung paano niya bine-break down 'yung bawat word, iba. Minsan kasi 'yun na ang nakakalimutan naming mga bagong actors.”

Aside from “Eerie,” Alonzo is also currently working on the movie “Kasal,” which also stars Derek Ramsay and Paulo Avelino.

“Medyo challenging ['yung transition] physically and emotionally. But at the end of the day, I still feel fulfilled kasi ginagawa ko 'yung gusto kong ginagawa tapos nakakatrabaho ko 'yung mga tao na gusto ko makatrabaho. Ang laking bagay na 'yung 'Eerie' team and 'Kasal' Team, masayang katrabaho. Kahit mabigat 'yung work, magaan pa rin sa pakiramdam,” she said.

As of writing, the release dates of the two movies have yet to announced.
