Everything About Her: Angel Locsin as Jaica

5:44:00 AM

Angel Locsin, who plays opposite Vilma Santos in her latest big-screen project, “Everything About Her,” plays Jaica, a nurse tasked to take care of Vivian (Santos), who is afflicted with bone marrow cancer.

In the Joyce Bernal film, Angel Locsin said the first time she worked with Gov. Vilma Santos, who is incidentally the mom of her boyfriend, TV host Luis Manzano (update regarding their relationship, Angel said that they're trying to fix their rocky relationship right now)  had been nerve-racking. “I was so nervous! I was afraid that I would not be able to react, because I was too star-struck. I realized that I’m very blessed to be given the chance to work with her. As an actress, she is very generous and helpful, at ‘di nananapaw. I’m nothing compared to Tita.”

Angel added: “We know how good an actress she is, that’s why to be able to work with her is truly a humbling experience. She treats everyone on the set as her equal. She is always kind and sincere. She never got angry at anyone, or complained about being already too tired to continue working.”

She said that working with Gov. Vi was indeed a bucket list for her and she learned a lot of things from her. Even though Direk Joyce was very strict to them so that they will not be able to show on cam how really close they are, it gave them much more freedom to act on their respective characters. At first Angel thought she will not be able to pull it off with the Star for all Seasons but with the help of Direk Joyce, she was motivated. “Buti na lang po nagkaroon ako ng director na nakatutok talaga at hindi siya nahihiya talaga na pagsabihan ako. (Sasabihin niya) ‘Gel, ’wag ’yan, ayoko ’yan. Ayoko ng magandang iyak. Gusto ko mas jologs pa, gusto ko mas natural, ’wag mo akong artehan, ’wag mo akong bigyan ng acting-acting (dahil) hindi ito drama. Nagpapasalamat talaga ako kay direk Joyce. Kung anuman ang ipapakita ko sa pelikulang ito hindi ko magagawa kung walang gabay (niya).”

Angel Locsin also got to work with Xian Lim for the first time, who plays Gov. Vi's estranged son, Albert. The actress was aware of Xian's rumored bad behavior at work etc. , as posted by netizens online, some were just posting it to bash Xian or whatever the truth is, she said it was through this film that she “discovered how hard-working and dedicated 
Xian is to his craft.”

“The first time I got the chance to talk with him, I told him that I didn’t think I’d enjoy working with him. Despite what I’ve read, I found Xian to be very humble. He exerted effort to get to know his coworkers. He even attempted to crack jokes, although I didn’t find them funny,” Locsin shared with the Inquirer. “Later, I told Xian to have his bashers watch this film, because he’s really good in it. It’s unfair for people to say bad things about him on Instagram. Reading them made me feel small, because I, too, made a lot of mistakes. There were also some scenes that I didn’t know how to execute.”

As for the upcoming Darna project, Angel Locsin told everyone during the Blogcon that right now, she wants to focus on her recovery (spine) before she can portray a very challenging role again which is Darna. She felt really thankful that a lot of people are still looking forward that she will play the iconic role but for now, her health is her top priority.
