You don't really know how two actors will look in a film until it's all shot and ready for you to watch. Casting can make or break a movie and it's something directors and filmmakers consider carefully. Before stars are cast, they often go through a look test just to see how well they can act the part and to see if they match on screen, and even established celebs go through it. Case in point: Actresses Angelica Panganiban and Bea Alonzo are starring in a film called Unbreakable, but before they could be cast, they had to go through a look test, too. Angelica recently posted on Instagram about how that went:
Angelica uploaded an Instagram Story from user @v_r_v_ or Vanessa R. Valdez, the writer of Unbreakable and creative director of Star Cinema, which features a photo of her and Unbreakable co-star Bea for their look test. The photo was taken on July 23, 2019. This is the first time the two actresses will appear in a movie together since their 2006 teleserye, Maging Sino Ka Man, directed by Mae Cruz-Alviar. Mae is also directing Unbreakable.
Unbreakable follows Deena (Angelica) and Mariel (Bea), two girls who become close friends after an argument breaks out during a concert they both attend. Navigating the ups and downs of school and adulthood, the two run to each other for help and support with the hopes that their friendship remains strong. They promise to let no man come between them and vow that their bond is unbreakable. Years later, though, it seems the promise won't hold up—as Mariel announces her engagement (to Richard Gutierrez's character), Deena greets this news with dismay. What happens next? We'll find out on November 27.
Unbreakable hits theaters on November 27.
