Bea Alonzo and Aga Muhlach were surprised to learn that they had been hoping to work with each other for the longest time.

Both actors had a long-standing admiration for each other’s work and hoped to work with each other on a future project, but years went by and the right film didn’t come until director Paul Soriano walked in with “First Love.”

“Nakatrabaho na siya ng ibang mga babae sa generation ko like sina Angelica (Panganiban), Angel (Locsin), Anne (Curtis), tapos akala ko, hindi na siya mangayayari. Pangarap ko siyang makatrabaho,” said Alonzo during an interview with Push.

(He’s (Muhlach) worked with other women from my generation like Angelica [Panganiban], Angel [Locsin], Anne [Curtis], then I thought maybe it’ll never happen to me. I’ve always dreamed of working with him.)

FEATURED STORIES

Meanwhile, Muhlach had also been admiring Alonzo’s work on the big screen. The veteran actor recalled saying, “Man, I’d love to work with her,” as he watched one of her films.

Soriano would later approach Muhlach with a new project that the director had seen as a perfect movie for the two actors, such that he already labeled the raw script as “Aga and Bea.”

Muhlach immediately texted and called up Alonzo to pitch the project. On her end, Alonzo quickly asked her driver to pull over just so she could answer a call from the Aga Muhlach.

“Sabi ko, ‘Sandali, sandali, tumigil ka, tatawag si Aga Muhlach!’ Oo, talagang sinagot ko. Tapos, tina-try kong ikalma ang sarili ko,” Alonzo recalled.

(I said, ‘Wait, wait, stop, Aga Muhlach is going to call!’ I quickly said ‘Yes.’ Then I was trying to calm myself.)

“Hindi pa niya natatapos ’yung sentence niya, sabi ko, oo, oo, opo, sige, gumawa tayo ng pelikula.”

(He wasn’t finished with his sentence yet and I was already saying, ‘yes, yes, yes, all right, let’s make a movie.’)

Muhlach also mused at how the actress called her “kuya.”

Alonzo reflected, “Siguro ngayon ’yung perfect time at siguro, ito ’yung perfect project.”

(Maybe now is the perfect time, and this is the perfect project.)

“First Love” will premiere in cinemas on Oct. 17.  Alfred Bayle /ra
