|Actress Angel Locsin tlaks about new soap on "The Buzz"
MANILA – After three years, Angel Locsin said she is extremely excited to finally return to the world of TV soaps with her upcoming series.
Locsin’s last teleserye with ABS-CBN was “Imortal,” which she co-starred with John Lloyd Cruz in 2010.
Asked what took her so long to have another drama series again, the actress said: “Hindi naman sa namili ako ng project pero may mga projects na hindi natutuloy. Ako kasi kung ano ang ibigay sa akin, kung matuloy okay. Kapag hindi natuloy, sayang.”
In a live interview on "The Buzz" on Sunday, Locsin said she trusts the ABS-CBN management when it comes to her projects, noting that she has been in good hands since she transferred to the Kapamilya network.
“Ayaw ko naman kasi mangulit, ayaw ko mag-demand na ibigay niyo sa akin iyan. Naniniwala ako na okay naman lahat ng projects na binigay sa akin so wala ako sa posisyon para mag-demand. Nagpapasalamat ako na hindi ako nag-demand kasi itong project na binigay sa akin napakaganda,” she said.
Locsin is set to tape her first scene for an upcoming ABS-CBN series which she will headline along with Jericho Rosales, Maja Salvador and JC de Vera.
“Iba siya, mature ang atake. Magt-try tayo mag-experiment para sa atake sa teleserye. Next week, papasok na kami nila Jericho. This year ipapalabas,” she said.
In an earlier interview, Rosales shared some details about the new series.
“October 18, we are going to start taping. No sure title yet but I got the latest script, it says there ‘Langis at Tubig.’ I’m very excited. It’s nice to work with people I haven’t worked with,” he said.
Meanwhile, Locsin said she is willing to do any kind of project just so she could provide for her family.
“Lahat gagawin ko para sa family ko. Hindi ko nga alam if pag-aartista ba talaga ang pinasok ko. Ang sa akin kasi, kahit anong raket na lang basta makatulong ako sa family ko, gagawin ko. I’m very blessed na ganitong klaseng trabaho pa ang nabigay sa akin ng Diyos,” she said.
Saying she owes her success to her supporters, Locsin said she will do her best in all her projects to give the viewers what they deserve.
