Some love teams are so effective that a part of you wishes they could just end up together in real life—and sometimes, they actually do. We've got the likes of KathNiel, JaDine, and LizQuen, for example. But the kilig power brought about by John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo is on a different level. The two actors have starred in many movies together (who could forget One More Chance?) but claimed to never have had feelings for each other at all. Either way, that's not going to stop us from imagining a world where they seriously got—and stayed—together.
Here are alternate scenarios where John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo are a couple:
They're longtime college sweethearts
John Lloyd and Bea proved so good playing their parts that until now, people still quote their movie lines. In this timeline that's based on the 2007 One More Chance, John Lloyd's Popoy and Bea's Basha are longtime lovers who meet in college, but eventually part ways, due to realizations and changes brought on by adulthood. After discussing their differences and talking things out, they meet years later and give each other...one more chance.
They go through challenges as a married couple
In this universe off A Second Chance, John Lloyd and Bea are back as Popoy and Basha and move on from being boyfriend and girlfriend to becoming husband and wife. Married life, however, is not that simple and together they work to iron things out and fix their marriage.
Time and circumstance might get in the way at first, but in the end, they're destined to be together
Bea's Mia is plagued with problems and John Lloyd's Alan is questioning his current relationship in their 2010 flick, Miss You Like Crazy. Despite the circumstances that pull them apart, they know deep down in their hearts that they're meant for each other. Sure, it takes an old man to predict all the hardships they would face before eventually ending up together, but destiny always has a few tricks up her sleeve.
They're strangers who meet during their commute every day
Picture this: an empty MRT with just you and the love of your life, except you both haven't met each other yet. John Lloyd's Michael doesn't believe in love but Bea's Betty is a hopeless romantic, and while their differences prevent them from truly getting together, she falls in love with the real him, which is basically how Now That I Have You unravels. It's cinematic and cheesy, but we know you'll take a serving of that any day.
One's immense loss leads to the two of them completing each other
In this universe, John Lloyd's Enzo is an athlete who has to undergo a heart transplant and said organ belongs to Bianca's (Bea) ex-boyfriend. Crazy, we know, but when she returns from the US and meets him, he's nothing like the ex she still misses but she gives him a shot anyway and they end up together. Phew, what a mouthful. Bonus: John Prats and Heart Evangelista are in My First Romance, too!
They're two strangers brought together by a voice recording
In this All About Love-inspired scenario, John Lloyd's Eric is mourning the death of his ex-girlfriend. He records a farewell letter to forget her once and for all and misplaces it intentionally. Bea's Lia, meanwhile, is still getting over her fiancé who got another girl pregnant (wild, we know). She stumbles upon Eric's tape and is moved by the love he has and realizes that the voice belongs to someone closer to her than she thought: her neighbor. Be on the lookout for Angelica Panganiban, Jason Abalos, Anne Curtis, and Luis Manzano in this timeline, too!
They're childhood friends-turned-lovers
Taking a cue from their roles in Close to You, John Lloyd's Palits and Bea's Bru have been the best of friends since their youth and they know everything about each other—except his feelings for her, of course. He plans on keeping it that way, but things change when her longtime crush comes back as the lead vocalist of a popular band. After 16 years of keeping his love all to himself, will he finally admit how he truly feels about his best friend?
They're caught in a strange love triangle
In The Mistress, John Lloyd's JD has always struggled to gain his father's approval...and it's made more complicated by the fact that he's, well, in love with his father's mistress, Bea's Sari. Strange and awkward, for sure, but you can't help rooting for the two of them to come to their senses and realize that they should be together.
