Tanduay Calendar Girl Bea Alonzo has been busy since the start of the year with TV and movie projects. She has also done a TV commercial (TVC) for Tanduay Select, which appeared in the first quarter of 2022.
In the TVC, Bea can be seen encouraging people to have the determination to make the right choice, just like what she did when she decided to switch to another network and become a Tanduay Calendar Girl.
“People were surprised that I did it (being a Tanduay Calendar Girl). At the same time, they were proud that I could embrace and celebrate my body. Some opportunities became available after it came out. People saw another facet of me that they have never seen before,” the talented actress said.
Bea is set to do another project for Tanduay Select, a rum made from a unique blend of cane spirits derived from quality sugarcane with a suave 60 proof. She is set to appear in its digital campaign before the year ends.
The actress is busy doing the Philippine adaptation of the hit Koreanovela, “Start-Up”, with Alden Richards, who is also a member of the Tanduay family as the brand ambassador of Embassy Whisky. The series, which is Bea’s first as a Kapuso, is set to air this Sept. 26.
”I like how open they are to collaboration,” Bea said of Tanduay. “They respect my brand and the things I stand for and represent.”
She added that she wasn’t really surprised when Tanduay was named the World’s Number 1 Rum for the fifth consecutive time by Drinks International Magazine.
“Tanduay has been at the top of its game for so long. They’ve always delivered and catered not only to Filipino consumers, but also to consumers worldwide,” Bea pointed out.
When asked if there are any actors or actresses that she dreams of working with, Bea replied with an excited, “Definitely!” She shared that she would love to work with younger actors and actresses.
About how she chooses her roles and if there’s one that she’d like to portray in future projects, Bea said that “choosing roles is like finding love.”
“You’ll feel it when you see it. I always like to be surprised. When I read a script, I know precisely when the project or role is for me. It’s a journey. Sometimes you can make mistakes, but it’s all part of it,” she explained.
As Bea said in her Tanduay Select TVC, “If you make the right choices, kaya mong magpasaya, kaya mong magbukas ng puso. Have the guts to choose para maitawid mo ang pagsubok (If you make the right choice, you can bring happiness, open hearts. Have the guts to choose, so that you can overcome obstacles).
She also reminded people that, “Every choice you make, kahit gaano kaliit, may kabutihang makakamit (Every choice you make, no matter how small it is, would achieve something good).”
Bea hopes that in the next five years, she has already explored different genres and mediums as an actress.
“It’s something that excites me, especially now that I’m in my 30s. I know that I am more in control of my life and my career,” she said.
Bea already has several movie and TV projects lined up for 2023 and 2024, including the movie “1521” which was shot entirely in Palawan.
Just like her decision in moving to another network and signing up as a Tanduay Calendar Girl, Bea is all set to excite, surprise, and delight her fans and gain new ones as she seizes the many opportunities that come her way.
