Award-winning actress Angel Locsin is nothing but a sport when it comes to netizens making fun of her on social media. 

On Monday, the lead of action-packed series ‘The General’s Daughter’ took to Instagram to gamely share a two-part series of fan-made ‘memes’ — or any humorous post that is copied and spread on the Internet — of herself during a particular dramatic scene in the show.

‘Yung pinag-tripan niyo na talaga ‘yung pinaghirapan naming scene para sa memes, ‘no? Naku, naku, naku, kayo talaga!,” said Angel. “Well, if you can’t beat them, join them, ika nga nila! So to, basagin ang sarili.” 

In January, Angel expressed her gratitude for the overwhelming feedback to her comeback series, having taken to social media to thank their avid viewers on behalf of their team.

“I am still speechless from reading wonderful feedback from last night’s episode,” she said. “Salamat po for the warm welcome. Couldn’t be more proud and happy for the whole TGD team.”

The sentiment echoed that of her co-star Paulo Avelino’s, who plays the role of Franco Segismundo. 

Nakita naman namin sa ratings sa social media, and wala talaga kaming mabibigay kung hindi husayan pa lalo itong serye at pagandahin pa lalo para sa inyo,” he said.

‘The General’s Daughter’ centers around the story of Rhian (played by Angel), who as a child was kidnapped and raised by Major Santiago Guerrero (Tirso Cruz III) to later set out on a mission to kill his nemesis and Rhian’s actual father, Brigadier General Marcial de Leon (Albert Martinez).

Billed as one of the flagship programs of ABS-CBN this year, the show features other celebrity A-listers as well, including Eula Valdez, Janice de Belen, Arjo Atayde, JC de Vera, and Ryza Cenon, plus a special participation from no less than the Diamond Star, Maricel Soriano.

‘The General’s Daughter’ airs every weeknights right after ‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano’
