Philippines, represent! 


Bea Alonzo was at the International International Film Festival & Awards Macao earlier this week to celebrate a massive professional milestone and expand her horizons as an actress: she was recently named by Variety as one of its high-potential picks in Asia to cross over to the international movie industry, which means that we may just see Bea star in a Hollywood production, sooner than later.


She was the lone Filipino at the event that also featured South Korea's Yoona from  K-pop group Girls' Generation, Japanese singer, actor, and dancer Ryota Katayose, Vietnam's Lien Binh Phat, Indonesiam beauty Asmara Abigail, India's Bhumi Pednekar, as well as two Thai bets, Praewa Suthamphong and Jennis-Oprasert.

At the event, Bea received her Asian Stars Up Next award, participated in a brief media conference where she and her contemporaries were officially introduced to their audience as well as in a hand print ceremony that cemented their elevated status in the industry. 


In the past, Anne Curtis and Piolo Pascual, both Kapamilya talents, were given the same distinction by  Variety. 


Looking back at her colorful career, Bea's horror hit Eerie was what caught the attention of movie watchers abroad; the film premiered at the Singapore International Film Festival and eventually made its way to Netlfix, much to the delight of horror-loving audiences all over the world.
