After the success of their Star Cinema film Every Breathe U Take, Angelica Panganiban said she was excited to find out that that her next teleserye would have her working again with Piolo Pascual. “Parang hindi ako makapaniwala na sa isang malaking project, part ako ng isang sobrang laking project tapos grabe yung mga makakatrabaho ko, mga makakasama ko na hindi lang mga artista kundi yung buong proyekto. Ang sarap, ang saya, sobrang heaven yung pakiramdam,” she shared. The new series titled Apoy Ng Dagat which will also star Diether Ocampo and Angel Aquino, is set to start taping by next week.
In this new drama, Angel will be bringing to life two characters just like what Coco Martin did in Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin. This dual role is admittedly an added acting challenge for Angel. “Siyempre sobra yung challenging dahil dalawang characters gagampanan ko so dun pa lang kaabang-abang na,” she shared during the Apoy Ng Dagat storycon held last July 5 at the ABS-CBN compound.
Angel said that she is lucky to have a leading man who is very easy to work with. “Si Papa P kasi sobra akong kumportableng makasama siya, maka-trabaho, parang hindi ako nahihiya sa kanya, sobrang kapal na nga ng mukha ko pag kasama ko siya. Well may ganun siyang personality eh, sa kahit na sinong nakakatrabaho niya. Napapansin ko lang naman parang sobra kang magiging relaxed, hindi ka kakabahan,” she explained.
Since Apoy Ng Dagat has a water element, Angel and Piolo are also going to undergo swim training next week in preparation for their roles. Aside from having heavy drama, Angel said their characters will showcase their more daring side as well. “Well basically kasi nasa dagat kami so parang dun pa lang, parang given na siya (laughs). Talagang mamalat-malat ito (laughs),” she said.
When prodded by the press if there is a chance that Piolo might develop feelings for her or vice versa, Angel brushes off the comment with a joke. “Basta ang alam ko kasi approve sa akin si Iñigo (Piolo’s son). Saan na ba siya? (laughs). Si Papa P busy kasi siya, wala siyang time sa akin. Kasi kakatapos pa lang ng Dahil Sa Pag-ibig tapos heto na siya, tapos hindi siya magbabakasyon. Ayaw na ayaw niya (laughs),” she said.
