MANILA, Philippines – Actress Bea Alonzo refused to get affected by rumors that her last series “A Beautiful Affair,” with John Lloyd Cruz, did not rate well and was thus ended immediately.

Speaking with entertainment website Pep.ph, Alonzo said what’s important is all of them in the cast did their job well.

“No, hindi na [ako affected]. Parang feeling ko, unang-una, we’re doing our job well. And parang, we just came from a movie that did so well. Parang ganun lang naman siguro talaga 'yun. I mean, I’m sure everyone had their own good intentions, but it just didn’t... maybe it didn’t measure up or something,” she said.

A lot of viewers were caught by surprise when “A Beautiful Affair” came to end only three months after its premiere episode.

Alonzo said one of the many reasons it went off the air so soon is their Cruz's hectic schedule.

“Isa rin sa mga dahilan 'yun because John Lloyd is doing a movie with Sarah Geronimo. So medyo nakaapekto rin 'yun, kasi we were always hand-to-mouth eh. We were taping hand-to-mouth, so laging for airing. So nagiging problema rin 'yung schedule niya,” she said.

“At the same time, I guess, baka hanggang dun lang talaga ‘yung story nun. You cannot stretch it or it’s better that way. It’s better that it ended that way,” she added.

After “A Beautiful Affair,” Alonzo said she will temporarily take a break from doing teleseryes as she will concentrate on her upcoming movie under Star Cinema.

“Kasama ko si Angel Locsin, Toni Gonzaga, marami... si Shaina [Magdayao], si Enchong [Dee],” she said.

Alonzo, however, did not disclose further details about the movie.
