Angel Locsin talks about her planned project with John Lloyd Cruz and why ex-boyfriend Luis Manzano has nothing to worry about.
With Angel Locsin’s working on Kokey @ Ako, her teleserye with John Lloyd Cruz will have to wait a little longer. But Angel is still looking forward to her team-up with the actor and shared that ABS-CBN management is already looking for the perfect script. “Ang ABS-CBN kasi metikuloso sa paggawa ng mga shows. Inaayos pa ‘yung story. Siyempre para ‘pag ipinalabas ‘yung story hindi naman tayo mapapahiya sa mga viewers at makapagbigay tayo ng kakaibang klaseng programa. Malay mo ma-nominate uli sa Emmys,” referring to her nomination at the 37th International Emmy Awards for her performance in the teleserye Lobo.
When Angel was told that Lloydy said that the actress’s recent Emmy nomination made him even more excited about working with her, she let out a nervous laugh and said, “Na-pressure ako dun. Sinabi ko naman ‘pag magsi-start na kaming magtrabaho magwo-workshop talaga ko. Ayokong mapahiya naman kay Lloydy.” She explained that John Lloyd is undoubtedly a brilliant actor with a wide range of acting skills. “Iba ‘yung kapasidad ni John Lloyd dahil kaya niyang magpatawa at kaya niyang magpaiyak, Ang galing. Sobrang intense niyang aktor.”
The actress also gave her reaction to former boyfriend Luis Manzano’s statement that he would feel awkward if a romance would develop between Angel and John Lloyd when they finally work together. Luis and Lloydy are good friends who have worked together in the movie In My Life and are both members of the all-male group Kanto Boys. “Kami ni Lloydy ginagawa lang namin ‘to kasi trabaho namin ‘to di ba? Ang bonus lang doon, gusto naming makatrabaho ang isa’t isa. Excited kaming makatrabaho ang isa’t isa. Pero wala naman siguro dapat ika-hurt,” Angel replied.
Angel also clarified about John Lloyd being self-conscious during the shoot of the Christmas station ID, in which the actor had to put his arms around Angel. “Nang-aasar lang ‘yon ipinaalam n’ya na baka daw may magalit. Pero feeling ko lambing lang ‘yon,” Angel said, smiling.
