EXCLUSIVE: Angela Tungol on being misunderstood: ‘Mukha lang akong masungit’


Pinoy Big Brother Otso may have ended but life in showbiz goes on for the former housemate known as the “Hataw Hottie ng Bataan” Angela Tungol. “Sobrang okay naman after PBB. Part ako ngayon ng Star Hunt Academy so isa ako sa mga trainees dun. Everyday yung training namin and we’re doing mall shows din and sobrang blessed and grateful pa din naman ako. Lagi akong nag-pe-pray pa rin kay God for all the blessings na binibigay niya sa akin and I’m still hoping for more projects kapag bibigyan ng chance,” she shared during the Sperry Varsity Prep Launch party held in Quezon City.

Even now that she is done with the reality show, Angela admitted she cannot believe how popular they have become after their stay in the popular Pinoy Big Brother house. “Siyempre hindi so habang nakikita kong nag-te-trending ako siyempre nakaka-overwhelm and hindi talaga namin in-expect na ganun kadaming tao yung nagmamahal sa amin through ups and downs. It’s been a roller coaster ride for me since PBB days hanggang paglabas ko so sobrang thankful pa din ako sa mga taong nagmamahal sa akin at sumusuporta dito sa labas ng bahay ni Kuya,” she said.

But even with her newfound fame, the 17-year-old aspiring actress claimed she has not changed much. “Naniniwala ako na mas maraming magmamahal sa ‘yo kung magpapakatotoo ka lang so just be yourself. May pag-iingat kung kailangan pero hangga’t maaari yung totoong tayo lang po yung ipapakita natin sa lahat,” she added.

Angela also shared what side of her viewers might have missed while watching PBB. “Hindi nila nakita kung gaano ako kakalog kasama. Kasi hindi naman yun masyado napakita sa loob ng bahay and sa social media. But I’m very joyful talaga. Mukha lang akong masungit pero sobrang saya ko kasama. May hobby din kasi ako na mag-make face or something like that tapos mukha daw akong mataray so yun lagi yung first impression ko pagpasok ko ng bahay ni Kuya. Pero hindi naman ako mataray,” she said.

Until now, Angela said she still wants to do more than just acting. “Siguro ngayon dahil nasa Star Hunt Academy ako, I’m more of into dancing talaga kasi yun na din talaga yung passion and talent ko. I’m also hoping naman na mabigyan ng chance sa acting. If may chance si Daniel Padilla din (gusto ko makatrabaho). Crush lang naman, hinahangaan. Siguro more on drama. Sa Star Hunt nag-fo-focus kami sa singing and acting muna. I’m looking forward to more workshops,” she said.

Even before joining PBB, Angela said she has been a big fan of a Kapamilya actor. “My celebrity crush since I was grade one si Daniel Padilla talaga (laughs). Una ko siyang napanuod sa unang movie nila ni Kathryn Bernardo. Yung medyo emo pa yung buhok niya. I met him but I didn’t get a chance to take a picture with him kasi guest sila sa Showtime nun and nakita ko siya nung during callbacks of PBB,” she said.
