ABS-CBN confirmed that actress Bea Alonzo is no longer under Star Magic, the talent agency that has handled her career for 19 years.
In a statement Thursday, November 26, the network confirmed that Bea is now under the management of Shirley Kuan.
“After a series of consultations, Bea Alonzo has decided to pursue her professional goals under a new talent management. Bea has subsequently advised ABS-CBN that she has appointed Ms Shirley Kuan to represent her as manager. We respect her decision,” the network said.
“ABS-CBN has full confidence that Ms. Kuan, an industry veteran, will manage Bea with the same attention and care that Star Magic has devoted to Bea’s professional career. Star Magic is coordinating with Bea and her new management to ensure a smooth and seamless transition,” it added.
The network also said that even if Bea is no longer under Star Magic, she will always be a Kapamilya.
Entertainment website Pep earlier reported that Bea’s contract with Star Magic ended in October and that she was now managed by Kuan. Kuan or SK, as she is known in the industry, handles the careers of stars such as Helen Gamboa, Albert Martinez, and Donna Cruz.
Bea is one of ABS-CBN’s top stars. She started her career in ABS-CBN back in 2001 when she was launched as part of the Star Magic Batch 10. She went on to star in shows such as K2BU, Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay, and It Might Be You.
Her tandem with John Lloyd Cruz on television and film turned them into one of the country’s top loveteams. They starred in the films One More Chance, A Second Chance, and The Mistress. – Rappler.com
