Angelica Panganiban is flattered to be considered as one of today's brilliant actresses


While people admire her versatility as an actress, Angelica Panganiban confessed that it is easier said than done. For instance, with the three projects she has at the moment, Angelica said that she has to concentrate really hard to channel in the characters she has to portray. “Minsan hindi mo na kilala ang sarili mo, minsan nalilito ka na rin kung ano ba talaga ang gagawin mo.”

However, Angelica quickly added that she is thankful to be working with understanding people, such as Direk Laurice Guillen, director of Angel’s Metro Manila Film Fest entry, I Love You, Goodbye. “Lagi niyang sinasabi sa akin, ‘Alam ko pagod ka, alam ko wala kang tulog…’ pero andami niyang pinapaalala sa akin, gaya ng ‘Binigyan ka ng tiwala ng Star Cinema, sana patunayan mo sa kanila na tama sila (sa kanilang desisyon),” she relayed.

When asked what she has to say about being called one of the best actresses of her generation, Angelica says she doesn’t let it get into her head. “Nakaka-flatter na sabihin ‘yon sa iyo, pero para sa akin hindi tama na ipasok ko ‘yon sa isip ko, eh. Mas gusto kong napi-please ko ‘yung sarili ko, mas gusto kong tsina-challenge ko ‘yung sarili ko at mas gusto kong ako ‘yung magsabi no’n sa sarili ko.” Also Angelica says that if given a chance she would like to work again with Star for All Seasons Vilma Santos “Nung nakatrabaho ko siya bata pa ako so ngayon na nandito na ako, feeling ko kaya ko nang i-challenge ang sarili kong kasama siya sa isang eksena.”

On a personal level, Angelica shared that she misses her parents a lot but said that she needs to live independently from them to prove some things to herself. “Andami-daming bagay na kailangan kong gawin para sa sarili ko at nung panahon na nag-decide akong umalis ng bahay namin, gusto kong matuto. Gusto kong may mapatunayan ako sa sarili ko at hanggang ngayon hawak ko ‘yon. Ayokong makita nila na failure ako. Kaya siguro ganito ako katapang. Andami kong gustong patunayan sa sarili ko at sa mga taong nagmamahal sa akin.”

I Love You, Goodbye, which is produced by Star Cinema also stars Gabby Concepcion, Kim Chiu and Derek Ramsay and opens in theaters on December 25.
