Bea Alonzo

Bea Alonzo is a Filipina actress. She was born on October 17, 1987. Her father is British while her mother is Filipino. She is a member of ABS-CBN's circle of homegrown talents collectively known as "Star Magic".


Early Life - Bea Alonzo had always dreamed of being in show business. Growing up without a father since the age of four, Bea has nonetheless managed to strike it out on her own.

She joined beauty contests at a very young age and she was moderately successful in this endeavor. It was in a small town beauty contest that she was discovered by famed Filipino fashion designer Oscar Peralta who then brought her to the attention of talent manager Archie Ilagan. The latter presented Bea to the head of the ABS-CBN Talent Center Johnny Manahan who inducted her into the Star Circle Batch 10. There she would be given a wide-range of acting lessons which later helped her land a part in the teen-oriented drama / comedy K2BU.

Career - In 2003, at the age of 15, Bea would be cast as 20 year old lawyer Katrina Argos in the TV drama Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay. The role would garner her first "Best Actress" nomination at the 2003 PMPC Star Awards. She was the youngest ever to be nominated in that category.

Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay paved the way for the John Lloyd and Bea loveteam. After three successful teleseryes It Might Be You, Ikaw Ang Lahat Sa Akin and currently Maging Sino Ka Man and hit movies such as My First Romance (where Bea Alonzo was named "Best New Movie Actress" at the 2004 PMPC Star Awards), Now That I Have You, Close To You, All About Love and the recent One More Chance, they are now known as one of the country's premiere loveteam.
