Bea - John Lloyd magic still evident 
after 10 years 

PINOYS OVERSEAS AWAIT TFC SCREENINGS OF THE 
LOVE TEAM’S ANNIVERSARY MOVIE - ‘THE MISTRESS’ WORLDWIDE


Quezon City, Philippines, September 18, 2012—After 3 years, Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz reunite in a film that marks their love team’s 10th anniversary and that proves that the love team’s magic continues - “The Mistress.”  In a star-studded premiere last September 11, ABS-CBN Corporation executives Gabby Lopez III, and Freddie Garcia Jr. and stars like Ai-ai delas Alas and Pinoy Big Brother season four winner Slater Young witnessed how fans swarmed the movie couple and marveled at how they continue to move the audience.


With the premier just finished and the international screenings kicking off in Europe via the very successful Nice, France premier and in New Zealand special screenings, Filipinos all over the world who are fans of the love team since theteleserye “Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay,” are also very eager to see the reel couple in TFC screenings of the Star Cinema special offering worldwide. 


While apart, Bea and John Lloyd have pursued projects that have set individual milestones in their acting career. On television, Bea Alonzo scored her first title role in the Filipino version of “Betty La Fea” and earned raves for her film “And I Love You So.” John Lloyd on the other hand, scored blockbuster movie hits in “You Changed My Life,” “A Very Special Love” and “My Amnesia Girl” as well as via television in “Betty La Fea” and “Imortal.”  


Together again after 3 years since they made “Miss You Like Crazy,” Bea and John Lloyd are set to equal, if not surpass the love team’s prior achievements like one of the most loved films of all time - “One More Chance.” The movie “The Mistress” features Bea and John Lloyd in their most daring performances ever.
Bea Alonzo, who plays the title role says “Honestly, bawat project ay iniisip namin baka last na, kagaya ng 'One More Chance' at 'Miss You Like Crazy,' pero hindi. Kaya sobra po talaga ang pasasalamat namin sa mga naniwala at sumusuporta sa amin sa loob ng 10 taon."  


According to director Olivia Lamasan, “This film is very important to me kasi naging parte ako ng 10 years ng John Lloyd-Bea love team. Isa ako sa bumuo sa kanilang love team in the 2002 TV hit ‘Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay,’ which was the launching teleserye of John Lloyd,” she remembers.  The movie also marks a milestone as it tackles an unconventional theme with a unique twist.


“The Mistress” is about a benefactor, his wife, the mistress and the latter’s lover.  The benefactor portrayed by seasoned actors Ronaldo Valdez is a man who takes on a mistress nearly half his age in the person of Bea.  The wife is portrayed by veteran actress Hilda Koronel (who came back from the United States just for the film) who holds on to love despite being hurt by the man he loves several times to different women.  John Lloyd plays a man who pursues Bea despite her involvement with a married man.  Bea is the mistress who has a deep reason for getting involved with a committed man.  But her love for her benefactor becomes unsteady with the entry of John Lloyd as a persistent suitor.  


Lamasan muses “What’s also appealing about the film is that kuwento siya ng flawed characters. All of them are flawed but all of them have a heart and in getting to know them, you would symphatize and empatize with them.”  Lamasan is the award-winning director behind the highly acclaimed “In The Name of Love” and “In My Life.”


Witness the unique twists to a timeless story on love and a different take on infidelity.  Most of all, marvel at how the story unfolds despite complicated circumstances.
