If her boyfriend Phil Younghusband were to propose to her any time soon, actress Angel Locsin would rather hear it directly from him in order for her to have her own “moment,” rather than to learn about it say from another people. But she clarified during a recent visit to the Toda Max set that her Fil-British beau has yet to propose to her and she wants it that way, for now.
“Hindi ko talaga alam eh. Sa ngayon kasi basta masaya kami pero ang hirap kasi kapag may mga priorities kami eh, gaya ng pamilya niya, pamilya ko. So andaming kailangang i-consider,” supplied Angel when asked if she’s ready to say “I do” to her boyfriend of two years now. She added happily, “Pero ewan ko, pag tinanong ka na hindi mo naman alam kung ano ang mangyayari. Basta I love, love.”
Four months ago, Phil, in an interview with Push.com.ph expressed with certainty that Angel will be the one whom he will be spending the rest of his life with. According to him, the only thing that’s left to be determined is when they will make it happen.
Angel, for her part, shared that the said declaration of the Azkals member got her a little nervous.“Ewan ko naunahan ata ng balita tapos andaming nagtatanong sakin kung ikakasal na ako. Magko-congratulate sakin, natakot ako kaya tinanong ko siya,” started the 28-year-old Kapamilya star.
“Sabi ko sa kanya ‘Bakit parang merong nagtatanong sakin, may interview ka ba about ganyan, medyo nagulat kasi ako.’ Sabi niya hindi rin naman daw niya alam. Medyo nakahinga naman ako nun,” she explained. “Ayaw ko naman malaman ng ganon. Kailangan ko ng moment,” she said in jest.
But what is a good marrying age for her anyway? “Sabi ko noon 22 tapos 28 na ako ngayon. Hindi ko alam sakanya. Siya 26, mas bata siya sa akin ng two years,” supplied the star. For now, Angel said she’s just happy to be in love with her beau.
Meanwhile, five months since ABS-CBN acquired rights to Mars Ravelo’s Darna, the actress who will be taking on the role of one of iconic superheroine remains to be unknown. A lot of suggestions have cropped up as to who would reprise the role, among them were KC Concepcion, Jessy Mendiola, Cristine Reyes and Sarah Geronimo. But the actress with probably the most resounding clamor was Angel who had already portrayed Darna years ago.
“Sana…kung magbabalik ang bato, why not!" she blurted. The Kapamilya actress admitted that Darna turned things around for her showbiz career in ways she couldn’t imagine. "Pwede naman din siyang ibigay sa younger generation. Ayoko ko na ipagkait kasi iba din naman ang binigay sa akin ni Darna, sa career, sa personal and sa buhay. Ayoko ipagdamot sa iba yung experience na yun," Angel said.
Angel confessed that portraying the character before has allowed Darna to be a permanent part of her and for that she is grateful. “Ako kasi si Darna eh. Part na siya ng pagkatao ko. 'Yung nagkaroon na ako ng opportunity at nagawa ko naman ng maayos yung duty ko bilang si Darna, malaking bagay na yun sa akin," she explained.
