MANILA, Philippines - Actress Bea Alonzo admitted that she initially felt "weird" working with actor John Estrada as one of her two leading men in her newest series "A Beautiful Affair."
Her other leading man is her long-time on-screen partner John Lloyd Cruz.
"Ayun, naabutan ko na si John. Medyo weird at first," Alonzo, 25, said of her new team-up with the 39-year-old Estrada. "Pero nakaka-in love talaga 'yung character niya rito bilang Edward, nakaka-in love talaga."
"As in reading the script, talagang na-in love ako doon sa character [niya]," she added. "Sana ma-in love din 'yung audience -- no wonder mai-in love talaga ang mga audience."
In "A Beautiful Affair" which premiered last Monday, Alonzo's character Gen had a relationship with Leon (Cruz) in Austria. She eventually falls in love with Edward (Estrada) upon returning to the Philippines.
Alonzo last worked with Estrada in the defunct series "Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay" in 2002.
