Angel Locsin has started work on her teleserye comeback, Imortal, the project that pairs her with young drama king John Lloyd Cruz. Chito Roño, whom Angel described as a genius, directs the series. “Si Direk Chito genius kasi akala mo itong lang ‘yung gusto niyang mangyari pero marami pa pala siyang naiisip kaya kapag na-edit at napanood mo na, ang ganda pala.”

Given how meticulous Direk Chito is with his work and the fantasy-action theme of Imortal, Angel said that the few taping days they have had have been very difficult. “Nag-start na kaming mag-taping. Nabubuo na siya. Sabi nga ni Direk Chito ang hirap hirap niyang gawin kasi sa isang eksena naghalo-halo ang rigging, prosthetics, effects, fight scene, at drama. E isang eksena lang ‘yun, marami pa kayong kukunan na scenes. Ganun siya kadugo. Pero so far happy naman kami kasi nakita na namin ‘yung ibang edits at maganda.”

Because of the physical demands of her role, Angel sees to it that she remains fit. “Kailangan lang talagang alagaan natin ang mga sarili natin. Wala naman sa akin ‘yung mga [paseksihan]. Napagdaanan ko na rin ‘yan. Tama lang na ‘yung iba naman e ma-experience nila. Bilang artista susuporta ka rin sa iba. Hindi naman pwedeng lagi na lang ikaw. Happy naman ako kung nasaan ako ngayon. Wala akong insecurity sa katawan. I think I’m sexy.”

Although considered as one of the most desirable women in showbiz, Angel remains single at the moment, an idea she is comfortable with. “Hindi naman porke wala kang karelasyon e hindi ka na pwedeng magmahal. Pwede kang magmahal kahit hindi alam ng tao. Allowed kang magmahal ng kahit sino. Choice mo na lang kung gusto mo ipaalam sa kanya o hindi, o kung gusto mong pumasok sa isang commitment.”

She added that for now she just wants to remain friends with ex-boyfriend Luis Manzano. “Okay naman kami ni Luis. We’re good friends. It’s better that way I think. Si Luis wala namang ipinagbago. Special pa rin siya sa akin. Wala naman siyang ipinagpipilitan.”  -ABS-CBN
