120612-angel_main.jpgDuring the grand press con of One More Try, director Ruel Bayani stated with conviction that their movie has a fair chance to take the number one spot among all the 2013 Metro Manila Film Fest (MMFF) entries. He further showed his pride and confidence in his work by saying that lead stars Angel Locsin and Angelica Panganiban can rival Superstar Nora Aunor’s acting in Thy Womb. “Ang totoo, siyempre lahat ng tao sasabihin si Ate Guy (Nora) ‘yan. Wala ng laban yung dalawang bata. Ay, hindi ganon ang buhay! Ang buhay laging paggising mo may laban ka, kung para sa’yo mapupunta sa’yo. [So] yes, may laban si Angelica at si Angel for best actress [in the MMFF Awards].” 

On her part, Angel gave credit to Nora for her unparalleled accomplishments as an actress. But at the same time, she did not deny the fact that she and Angelica both worked hard to portray their roles the best way they can. “Actually, habang sinasagot ko nanginginig ako kasi never kong inisip sa buong career ko kahit na makatapat man lang kasi iba naman po talaga yung talento ni Ate Guy, alam natin lahat ‘yan. Pero bilang mas nakakabagong artista, hindi mo rin maaalis sa amin na umasa kasi naniniwala kami sa project na ito. At siyempre yung dedication at confidence na ipinakita ng director namin na sinasabi niyang may laban yung mga alaga ko, siyempre nakakatuwa. So kung sino man manalo dun, I think sobrang deserving naman talaga yun, whether kami man o sa ibang pelikula nandiyan din si Ate Juday (Judy Ann Santos) na sobrang galing din po, sila Ms. Ai-Ai (de las Alas). Pero yun nga, ‘di mo maaalis sa amin na mag-wish.”

Truth be told, Angel did not immediately accept her mother role in One More Try when it was first offered to her. But as seen in the trailers, it turned out to be a good vehicle to showcase her acting chops. “Actually, nung pinatawag ako, sabi ko, ‘No. Huwag muna magpelikula kasi kakatapos ko lang sa dalawang pelikula.’ Tapos nung prinesent sa akin itong proyekto, yung hawak ko sa ‘no’ bumubukas na kasi napakaganda ng story. Kaya lang medyo natakot lang ako kasi ang character ko nanay. Hindi ko alam pakiramdam bilang nanay. Sabi ko, kaya ko na ba mag-mommy? Kaya lang sobrang challenging talaga. Hindi ko sinasabing lahat naiintindihan ko pero mas naiintindihan ko yung journey ng isang nanay, kung paano ipaglalaban yung anak niya, kung papaano isasakripisyo yung sarili nya. Sabi nga nila wala ng tama or mali kung para sa anak mo naman so napa-yes ako.

Angel further shared that working with Direk Ruel made her reminisce about her ex-boyfriend, the late Miko Sotto. “Si Direk Ruel ang favorite director ni Miko at that time. Tapos si Oyo (Sotto) rin. Palagi niya (Miko) sa akin mine-mention na sobrang bait ni Direk, madami siya natututunan sa acting, maalaga. Tapos nung nangyari nga yun after Miko, naging kami ni Oyo, isa siya sa mga tao na hindi kami hinusgahan. So tandang-tanda ko yun talaga. Bago pa siya nagkaroon ng No Other Woman, hinihingi ko talaga ’pag nagdadasal ako na sana magkaroon ako ng time makatrabaho si Direk. Akala ko nga teleserye lang o kaya guesting. Di ko inaakala na ganito kalaki ibibigay ni Lord. So sobrang pasalamat ako na nagkaroon ako ng chance kasi gusto ko talaga.”
