John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo – From ‘The Mistress’ to ‘A Beautiful Affair’
October 29, 2012 by ABS-CBN
Ten years after their successful debut on primetime television, John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo reunite in a mature love story that tackles the dilemma of choosing between love and loyalty in A Beautiful Affair which premieres on October 29 on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida.
Spicing up this sweeping romantic teleserye is actor John Estrada, who stars in his biggest drama series to date. The much-awaited series is one of the highlights of the tenth anniversary celebration of the most successful team of their generation.
Follow the love story of three people who will each face the toughest obstacles in a relationship and will be forced to make a choice between steadfast loyalty and passionate love.
Leon Riego (John Lloyd), a brilliant architect and Gen Saavedra (Bea), an heiress, first meet in Austria as two broken souls. Their mutual attraction will temporarily unburden them of their respective miseries – Leon from the guilt brought by the death of his adoptive mother, and Gen who is trying to move on from the betrayal of a former lover.
Together, they wind up spending the time of their lives by getting on a romantic escapade to Vienna and Salzburg. In each other’s pains they find strength, and in each other’s bitterness they find love.
Despite the undeniable attraction between them, they decide to part ways and fix their lives before choosing to love again.
They meet after a year but, to Leon’s surprise, Gen is already in a relationship with construction magnate Edward (John Estrada) who has been an important figure in his life since childhood and has helped him achieve his dream of becoming an architect.
How will Edward deal with the knowledge of Gen’s encounter with Leon in the past? Who between the two men will Gen really choose? Which will carry more weight for Leon – his love for Gen which he believes will mend his shattered soul or his loyalty to Edward brought by debt of gratitude?
A Beautiful Affair takes full circle with the return of the people who first brought John Lloyd and Bea’s love team to the small screen—now business unit head Laurenti Dyogi and now director Katrina Flores. Dyogi was the director of the love team’s first teleserye, the highly acclaimed and top-rating Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay, while Flores was the headwriter.
Part of the A Beautiful Affair cast are excellent actors Dimples Romana, John Arcilla, Jaime Fabregas, Maritoni Fernandez, Ana Roces, Janus del Prado, and Megan Young together with Jim Paredes and PBB Unlimited Big Winner Slater Young who will appear in their first-ever teleserye.
