Fan clamor for their tandem reached new heights following their memorable takes on the roles of Rico and Grace in “My Beloved.” That they were taken as the right screen couple to fill in a prime time slot previously occupied by the Marian Rivera-Dingdong Dante’s chemistry is an instant statement that rings aloud.
Directors and co-actors who have worked with both Alden and Louise in the past agree in saying that there’s something seamless seeing them together on screen.
The past two years this GMA Artist Center team-up has been on six projects, including “Alakdana” where their chemistry was cooked up, and three episodes of Spooky Nights, namely, “Singil”, “Parol”, and “Orasyon.”
In “One True Love,” Alden plays Tisoy while Louise acts as Elize. They are supported by veteran character acts Jean Garcia and Raymond Bagatsing, along with recording artist-cum-actress Agot Isidro. Andoy Ranay directs while La Diva interprets the theme song “Pangarap Ko Ang Ibigin Ka” written by Ogie Alcasid.
This year, Alden, hailed for his performance as a cold-blooded killer in the film “The Road,” was feted by Golden Screen Awards in the “Breakthrough Performance by an Actor” category and PMPC Star Awards for Movie as “New Movie Actor of the Year.” In 2011 he was “Amazing Male Newcomer” at the 1st Yahoo OMG Awards. He is being predicted by industry observers as the next John Lloyd Cruz since he’s able to back up his boy-next-door appeal with believable portrayals.
Louise, on the other hand, was nominated by Yahoo as “Amazing Female Newcomer,” apart from winning the German Moreno Youth Achievement Award at FAMAS on the same year. Her on-screen presence gets bigger the moment she is paired with an equally good actor. Now showbiz experts are thinking she has the key to her ultimate individual success with Alden as her love team partner.
