KONTROBERSYAL ang desisyon ni Bea Alonzo na lumipat sa GMA pagkatapos ng dalawang dekadang pananatili sa ABS-CBN. Samu’t sari ang reaksyon ng mga tao: May mga galit at kung anu-ano ang binabato sa aktres, habang marami rin ang masaya para sa bagong kabanata ng showbiz career ng dalaga.
Noong July 1 ay nag-upload ng isang ‘love letter’ para sa kanyang mga tagahanga si Bea. Dito ay nagbalik-tanaw siya sa kanyang humble showbiz beginnings at binalikan ang turning point ng kanyang pagsikat bilang isa sa pinakamamahal na bituin ng ABS-CBN.
“They trusted in me and helped me hone my talent. I will never forget everything that they have done for me,” Bea said, adding she wouldn’t be where she is today without the help of ABS-CBN’s “most talented writers, brilliant directors, and most professional co-actors.”
“I cannot forget the day that my life has changed because (ABS-CBN) trusted in me,” she added.
Patuloy niya, Hindi ko rin inaasahan na that has become my biggest gift—to touch people’s lives.With that, is one of the biggest responsibilities that I have to manage. I have to say that my fans are very important to me. They give me a sense of purpose, a sense of community.”
Kahit pa thankful ito sa ginawa ng ABS-CBN para sa kanyang karera, she also believes in “following my heart and purpose,” kaya lumipat na ito sa GMA-7.
“For many months, I have reflected on so many things about my life. I have also embraced many changes in my life. And after many months of reflection and negotiations, we have reached a decision,”
Dagdag pa niya, “I am an actress. I am here to create. That is my purpose. And that is my task. I owe that to my audience,”
Kahit na “goodbyes are painful,”, alam ni Bea na ang pagbabagong ito sa kanyang buhay will “lead me to a door of many opportunities and new learnings and growth.”
“Change is always scary. But it can also be beautiful.”
“This decision is both exciting and terrifying for me. If there’s anything this pandemic has taught me, it’s that you only live once and life is short. You need to do things that you make feel alive. And that for me is chasing my dreams and performing my purpose.” pagtatapos ng bagong Kapuso.
