Angel Aquino thinks Erich Gonzales and Enchong Dee are better off as friends for now


080411-angel_main.jpgAngel Aquino is up for another kontrabida role in the upcoming teleserye Maria La Del Barrio. In last year’s drama Magkaribal, Angel made a mark among viewers as the greedy fashion queen Vera. The model-turned-award winning actress told reporters during the press conference of Maria La Del Barrio that when she accepted the role in Magkaribal, she never expected that she would receive rave reviews for her portrayal. “Kasi kapag tumanggap ako ng project o ng role ginagawa ko lang. Sa Magkaribal, hindi ko inasahan na magiging ganun katindi ‘yung reaction ng mga tao kay Vera.”

Now as Victoria in Maria La Del Barrio, an adaptation of a hit Mexican telenovela, Angel promised to give her best so as not to disappoint all the fans who loved her in Magkaribal. “I promise na ibibigay ko talaga lahat for the character. Kung hindi man niya mahigitan si Vera sa mapantayan man lang. Sana magustuhan ninyong lahat.

As the villain in the teleserye, Angel did a scene where she had to push and slap Ai-Ai De Las Alas. The former confessed that at first she was very nervous about having to hurt the comedienne. “Nung una kinakabahan ako kasi akala ko masasaktan ko talaga siya. Pero game naman siya. Sabi niya ‘wag ko na raw intindihin siya, na gawin ko lang kung ano ‘yung kailangan kong gawin for the scene. Kahit papaano na relax ako. At least I know na hindi niya ako idedemanda kung sakaling nasaktan ko siya, ha ha ha!

Maria La Del Barrio is top-billed by Enchong Dee and Erich Gonzales with whom Angel also got to work with in Magkaribal. Having established a friendship with the two, the dramatic actress shared her observations on how the young stars act on the set. “The two of them have always been professional. When they get to the set at kailangang gumawa ng eksena, they get into their roles. Pero pagkatapos nun para lang mga batang may mga sariling mundo. Si Erich nanonood ng DVD, si Enchong naka-iPod.”

Angel was further asked if she thinks romance was blossoming between Enchong and Erich. The actress said she believes the two are just friends and added that for now, it is better if they will remain as such. “Mas enjoy akong nakikitang friends sila kasi walang friction on and off the set. Mas na-appreciate ko ‘yun. Kapag naging mag-on kasi sila, kapag nagka problem sila, mas mabigat ‘yun para sa aming lahat. Mas maganda yatang magkaibigan lang sila and I believe friends lang talaga sila ngayon.”
