Having started out in showbiz as a child actress, Angelica Panganiban shared that she has learned a lot about being a professional actor on the set and has never been told off by her directors.

“Nung mas bata siguro ako parang pag naglalaro, magulo, ganyan. Pero ngayon parang tanga naman pag napagalitan pa ako ng director. Parang medyo may problema ka siguro nun, ang panget siguro ng work ethics mo. So far naman hindi naman ako napapagalitan. Parang hindi naman din uso yun ngayon. Parang mas dini-direct, mas kino-correct siguro parang pag may ginagawa kang acting, mas tinuturuan,” she shared.

After working again with Star Cinema director Mae Cruz-Alviar (who also directed her in the 2019 romantic drama Unbreakable), Angelica said she is thankful for having worked together in many different projects.


“Yun rin naman ang maganda kay direk kasi may tiwala ako sa kanya eh. So ‘pag may sinabi siya, parang oo nga naman tama nga naman yun. Minsan kasi nawawala na rin kami sa sarili namin parang gusto na lang din namin matapos. Nakakalimutan namin yung character or yung goal nung eksena, san ba dapat ito papunta?” she explained.

During the Love or Money presscon, direk Mae revealed that Angelica was so easy to work with and called her a “one-take actress” who didn’t need to keep repeating her scenes. But Angelica said it’s not because she is that good of an actress.

“Sobrang tagal na naming nagsasama ni Direk. Tingnan pa lang niya ako, naiiyak na ako. Kabisadong kabisado na namin ang isa’t isa. Pero hindi ko nga alam minsan kung compliment yung take one actress kasi naiinggit ako sa iba na pag may pinaulit, kaya nilang ulitin. Kaya ako take one actress kasi pag nagawa ko na, hirap akong ulitin yun. So feeling ko mas talented yung mga kaya nilang ulit ulitin yung mga eksena di ba? Aaralin ko pa yun. Ako minsan naiinis sa sarili ko, minsan kasi yung ka-eksena mo hindi naman nakuha so parang kailangan ulitin di ba?” she said.

Love or Money starts streaming on March 12, with tickets available through KTX.ph, TFC, and SkyCable Pay-Per-View.
