Angel Locsin admits that comedy is more difficult than drama and action


120112-angel_main.jpgKnown for her drama and action roles, Angel Locsin has admitted that comedy is not her forte but she is glad that the cast and crew of the Saturday sitcom Toda Max have been very supportive which makes her job easier. “Bilang isang baguhan sa larangan ng comedy at hanggang ngayon lutang pa rin [ako], hindi [ako] makapaniwala [na part ako of a successful sitcom]. Ang laking tulong sa akin talaga kasi ang swerte ko sa mga kasama ko, plus ‘yung producers ko, ‘yung director ko na gina-guide kami, binibigyan kami ng freedom. Hindi kami nilalagay sa kahon [at] bilang isang aktres, mas madali gumalaw, mas madali magbuo ng character. Maraming, maraming salamat po kung sa tingin n’yo ay naitatawid ko nang tama. Hindi madaling maitawid from drama, action [tapos] ay kailangang magpatawa. Mas mahirap po talagang magpatawa kasi iba ang timing ng comedy po,” she explained.

Angel’s co-stars Vhong Navarro and Robin Padilla were all praises for the actress and said that she was an effective comedienne. Vhong said, “Alam mo, hindi niya alam pero natural siyang nakakatawa. Siya ‘yung tipong eto ‘yung punch line, dinadagdagan niya pa, eh kumbaga ang sarap kasi dagdagan pa dahil humahaba, so lalo mong ini-enjoy ‘yung eksena.”

Robin said that what makes Angel very effective in comedy is the fact that she keeps it real. “Ang maganda kay Miss Angel Locsin hindi siya nagpupumilit magpatawa. Nanggagaling sa puso niya ‘yung pagpapatawa. Kahit comedy talagang nadadala ka sa kanya kasi hindi lang basta ibinabato ang linya, nanggaling talaga sa puso niya ang linya. Minsan kahit ‘yung pick-up line, nakikita mo talaga sa kanya na galing sa puso niya [kaya] ‘yung manonood nadadala.”

Toda Max airs on ABS-CBN every Saturday after Maalaala Mo Kaya.
