Despite the recent announcement that she’s no longer reprising the iconic role of Darna, Angel Locsin is set to start taping soon for La Luna Sangre.
La Luna Sangre is the third installment of the action-fantasy Imortal series, which would star Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo.
She said, “Yes, excited kasi pinipili ko rin naman ang mga proyekto ko and nami-miss ko rin naman ang pag-arte so okay naman.
“Kung ano ang ibigay na blessings sa akin, I’m always excited,” she added in an interview with Cinema News.
Angel pointed out that she’s especially excited to appear in La Luna Sangre together with John Lloyd Cruz.
“La Luna Sangre? Yes, nag-usap na kami tungkol diyan and kaming dalawa ni John Lloyd. Excited ‘cause di ko pa sila nakakatrabaho, ngayon pa lang,” she said pertaining to Daniel and Kathryn.
The esteemed actress is hoping to have a chance to get to know the younger box office stars.
“Parang wala din ako masyadong chance na makasama sila because magkakahiwalay kami. Sana dito may time to bond,” she said.
Meanwhile, prior to returning to acting, Angel is currently pinch-hitting for Vice Ganda on It’s Showtime. Vice is currently in the US for his Pusuan Mo Si Vice Ganda concert tour.
“Happy because madlang pipol naman they have always been very warm sa pag-welcome sa akin,” she said of her Showtime return.
“Saka nandiyan naman sila Anne [Curtis], sila Vhong [Navarro], mga kaibigan ko, so exciting,” she added.
In the end, Angel assured fans that all is well for her despite her doctor’s recent advice not to take on strenuous activities which led to her begging off from the big screen adaptation of Darna.
“Yes, I'm okay. Ang iniisip kasi ng iba di ako makakagawa ng movements,” she said. “Kaya naman, kaya naman. May limit lang talaga.”
