Beautiful actress Bea Alonzo appeared once again as herself, the lovely Bea, Thursday evening, August 28 in a grand press conference of ABS-CBN’s upcoming television show – "I Love Betty La Fea."

In the event, Alonzo shared her excitement playing the role of Betty. Alonzo would reportedly no longer be Bea but will act, speak and be seen as the deglamoralized Betty Pengson of the TV show.

The actress said that the first time she saw her face on the mirror she really exclaimed "Wow! I’m Betty-ful."

Alonzo said that aside from having fun portraying her role, she said that she is not having a hard time becoming Betty because she only needs to wear light prosthetics

"Actually konti lang naman iyong prosthetics na nilalagay sa akin, pinakakapal lang nila iyong kilay ko, iyong mole ko dinidikit at iyong braces lang naman talaga," explains Alonzo.

Betty admitted that for the series she watched the original Columbian version of "Betty La Fea" and the western version of it.

"Though, I was not allowed to watch the western, kasi totally different talaga pero sa sobrang curiosity pinanood ko siya at nakita ko iyong difference… pero…. Iyong Columbian iyon, iyong franchise na binili namin and it’s actually nice," she said.

It will be remembered that Alonzo’s wish was to portray the role Betty, and now her dream coming true.

"Sobrang happy, wala na akong mahihiling pa sa ngayon. Sobrang masayang-masayang ako kasi isa ito sa mga dream role, at isa siyang napakagandang character at finally makakagawa na din ang mga Pinoy ng sariling version natin ng Betty La Fea."

Back again

For some time, reports surfaced that the love team of Alonzo and long time screen partner John Lloyd Cruz is about to break up but the two proved them wrong when Cruz was announced just recently that he will be playing the role of Armando, Betty’s love interest in "I Love Betty La Fea."

One of ABS-CBN’s business heads, Mr. Deo Endrinal shared that Alonzo and Cruz have been the first choice to play the lead roles of Betty and Armando from the very beginning.

"It was just really a matter of timing, when to do the project, when to announce the completion of the cast but from the very beginning they were really our first choice," Salud said.

In a previous interview with abs-cbnNEWS.com, Cruz explained that there was really no intention to break their team up.

The extravagant launching of the most-awaited series started as the cast posed and walked on a fashion runway before they were seated in front of the members of entertainment media.
