Angel Locsin talks about working with Vhong Navarro and Robin Padilla in 'Toda Max'


120911-angel_main.jpgAngel Locsin started out as a guest on the sitcom Toda Max, but the beautiful actress happily agreed to be a mainstay on the show. During her solo press con last December 6, Angel shared that doing comedy is a good challenge for her. “Iba yung feeling kapag sitcom. Umuuwi ka sa bahay ng masaya, wala kang problema, hindi ka umiiyak. Sa drama kasi kahit masaya ka kailangan malungkot ka. ‘Ay, ‘di ako pwedeng masyado malikot kasi marami akong fight scenes. Ay, malungkot ako, hindi dapat masyadong maingay.’ Dito sa Toda Max, meron akong freedom na tumawa buong araw at magbigay ng ligaya. Yun ang na-a-appreciate ko.”

Angel further shared that she felt like a princess with the way her male co-stars Robin Padilla and Vhong Navarro are treating her on the set. Angel previously worked with Robin for a primetime soap on another network. “Kasi si Kuya Robin, siya yung tipo ng leading man na kulang na lang buhatin yung sariling upuan para ipaupo sayo. So, pagdating ko sobrang pampered ako. Tapos pagtingin ko kay Vhong parang naimpluwensiyahan na siya ni Kuya Binoy (as Robin is fondly called in showbiz circles). Siya na rin ang nagbibigay ng upuan, pareho na rin sila magsalita... Iba magalaga ng leading lady si Kuya Binoy. Kahit sinong leading lady niya makakapagpatunay nun.

But this time, Angel is playing Vhong Navarro’s girlfriend in the story. Asked how she feels about being paired with the comedian/host, Angel cheerfully replied, “Napakagaling niyang komedyante. Kahit hindi nagrorolyo yung camera, nakakatawa pa rin siya in real life. Dapat meron kaming serye, yung Kokey, pero hindi po ako natuloy. Tapos nung gagawin na namin yung Toda Max, naisip namin na first time pala namin makakatrabaho. Kasi parang feeling namin matagal na kasi nagtsitsikahan na kami e. Ninerbyos ako, ninerbyos siya, pero hindi naman nag-reflect sa kamera. Tingin naman ng karamihan may chemistry kami so masaya.”

Aside from the laughter on the set, Angel is comfortable with her character Isabel Padausdos who has a strong and boyish personality. “Hindi masyadong mabango yung pangalan ‘di ba? So nakita ko na itong tao na ito laking kalye at palaban. Kapag kinanti mo, hindi siya magpapatalo. Nakaka-relate ako in a way na hindi rin naman ako lumaking mayaman. Naiintindihan ko si Isabel Padausdos.”

Although she’s still working on her comedy, Angel’s excited with her light banter with Robin and Vhong in Toda Max. “Si Kuya Binoy may dalawa siyang anak dito tapos pinsan niya si Vhong. Ako yung girlfriend ni Vhong. Seloso siya lalo na kay Kuya Binoy dahil gwapo at macho. Kaya kapag nagkakaron kami ng moment ni Tol (character of Robin), nagseselos siya. Nakakatuwa yung story. Pagpasensiyahan niyo ako dahil baguhan pa ako sa comedy, pero nag-i-improve naman,” she beamed.
