MANILA — Bea Alonzo on Tuesday was introduced alongside fellow Asian personalities as Variety’s bets for international stardom at a media conference in Macau.
Alonzo, 32, is the lone Filipino on the list dubbed “Asian Stars: Up Next,” which seeks to “help Asia’s talent cross borders onto an international or global stage.”
The recognition is part of the International Film Festival & Awards Macao (IFFAM).
In photos from Star Cinema and Star Magic, Alonzo is seen with her batch of awardees at a press presentation, where they took part in a hand print ceremony.
Variety listed Alonzo alongside Yoona of South Korea, Ryota Katayose of Japan, Lien Binh Phat of Vietnam, Asmara Abigail of Indonesia, Bhumi Pednekar of India, and Praewa Suthamphong and Jennis-Oprasert of Thailand.
Alonzo recently made a mark internationally with the Star Cinema film “Eerie,” which premiered in the Singapore International Film Festival, and was subsequently released on Netflix, capturing horror fans’ attention globally.
Filipinos who have made it to earlier editions of the “Asian Stars: Up Next” list are Piolo Pascual and Anne Curtis, both colleagues of Alonzo in ABS-CBN.
