Award-winning actress Angel Locsin is set to return on primetime TV via ABS-CBN's upcoming family drama series “The Legal Wife,” where she will star with Jericho Rosales, Maja Salvador, and new Kapamilya star JC de Vera. 

It's been 3 years since she was last seen at the Kapamilya primetime on "Imortal," opposite John Lloyd Cruz and according to Angel, it has been also her decision because at that time she finished a soap which is Immortal then another movie. She wanted to focus on a certain project before going to the next project so that she can give her best plus, she also make it a point to choose the perfect role that will suit her. "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," This is definitely the perfect comeback for Angel Locsin.

This is the first time Maja and Angel will work together and it turned our perfectly well for both of them. During the BlogCon, they showed how close and comfortable they are with each other. Even Angel said "Sobrang saya sa set, lahat kumportable sa isa't isa. "

Maja said upon learning that Angel is part of the soap, she instantly grabbed the opportunity to be part of it. Maja has established herself as one of the notable dramatic actresses in the country to date. The fact that she instantly felt at ease with Angel further added to her excitement about their project. “Kapag nakikita ko siya parang walang siyang ibang ginawa kundi ngumiti. Parang Angel talaga. Ang gaganda din ng projects na ginagawa niya. Excited ako na makatrabaho siya. Happy din daw siya na magkasama kami sa isang teleserye.”

Maja recently celebrated her 10 years in the showbiz, she shared that she really feels grateful that she gets to improve her versatility by trying out different roles— a teacher who gets involved with her student in Nagsimula Sa Puso, a rebel who’s in love with her best friend in Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin, and an insecure twin sister in Ina, Kapatid, Anak to name a few. “Never pa kasi ako nakagawa ng project na halos parehas. Yearly, palaki ng palaki. Laging bago. Ganon lagi sa akin. Feeling ko mas okay yun kasi kapag naging kampante ka sa isang bagay, baka maapekuhan yung trabaho. Kaya ako okay ako na laging may kaba, takot na baka hindi swak sa akin yung isang character or kung magagawa ko ba ng tama yung role ko.” This is the perfect reason why she accepted the role eventhough it may be a little controversial for her.  

JC De Vera will be playing the role of Max, who will comfort Monica (Angel Locsin) when she discovered that Jericho has been unfaithful to her.

When asked how is he feeling now that he finally lands on a big project, in a primetime slot together with the big names of Kapamilya network.
"Pressured po, nervous but at the same time very thankful at blessed na mapasama sa napakagandang project na ito. Makasama ko pa lang ang mga bigating artista na kasama ko ngayon sobrang saya na ako, sana madala nila ang pangalan ko. Kabao din kasi makakasama ko yung cursh ko na si Maja, matagal ko na din naman nasabi na malaki ang paghanga ko sa kanya. "
