Angelica Panganiban said that she credits her Apoy Sa Dagat co-stars and the staff of the show for the high ratings they have been receiving. The drama series revolves around the lives of twins Serena and Rebecca who are both played by Angelica and the two men in their lives played by Piolo Pascual and Diether Ocampo.
One of the most talked-about scenes from the show so far involves her passionate kissing scene with Piolo, who plays her childhood friend Ruben. The 26-year-old actress admitted that this is just the tip of the iceberg of the things to watch out for from the show. “Hindi, sweet pa nga yun eh. una pa lang yun,” she revealed. In real life, Angelica said she wishes the still single Piolo a happy love life. “Alam niyo, si Papa P deserve niya na mag-enjoy at maging masaya. At saka gusto ko na maging masaya na siya sa pinaka-nalalapit na panahon,” she said.
Angelica also said her onscreen kissing scenes with Piolo have not affected her relationship with boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz. “Ewan ko, mukhang okay naman. Pinanuod naman namin yung One More Try. Dito naman sa show, tuwang tuwa naman siya (laughs). Siyempre natutuwa siya pag nababalitaan niya na mataas yung ratings ng show, ganun. Tapos maganda naman yung mga sinasabi niya na tataas pa yan, ganun,” she explained.
The actress said she is happy to spend time with Lloydy despite their busy working schedules. “Okay naman kami. May jamming naman kami, paminsan minsan (laughs). Pag may free time nakakalabas naman kami, nakakakain kami sa labas or binibisita ko sila sa kanila kasama yung family niya, kasama din yung family ko,” she added.
The talented actress also explained why she has chosen to be more open about sharing details of her relationship with Lloydy on social media sites especially this month. “May okasyon kasi. Wala pa naman kasing Twitter and Instagram noon. Tapos maganda pa kasi ngayon dahil Valentines para sweet and ganun naman talaga ginagawa ng iba kapag Valentines so nakisabay lang naman ako sa uso (laughs),” she admitted.
When it comes to her boyfriend’s love team with Sarah Geronimo, Angelica said there will never be a jealousy issue between her and Lloydy. “Nakupo hindi, diyosko pumipila ako sa sinehan nung dalawang pelikula nila. Sa first day talaga. Fan na fan ako ni Laida at ni Miggy. At saka nakakakilig sila eh, iba yung dating nilang dalawa,” she said.
