After announcing last year that she was ready to retire from doing teleseryes, Angelica Panganiban said the decision did not come to her overnight, even though she still accepted to do Walang Hanggang Paalam last year.

“Siyempre bago ako umabot sa point na yun, maramaing marami naman akong kinonsider. And bago ko tinanggap itong show na’to, kumbaga nandun na ako sa stage, nung ginagawa namin ni Z (Zanjoe Marudo) yung Playhouse, iniisip ko kung yun na yung magiging last project ko pagdating sa TV magiging masaya na ako. Kumbaga gusto ko na siyang iwan ng ganun. Kaya lang nga nangyari yung pandemic, parang sino ba naman ako para tumanggi sa trabaho samantalang ang dami-daming nanghihingi ng trabaho di ba?” she shared during the Walang Hanggang Paalam Against All Odds Finale media conference last April 12.

The 34-year-old actress said she thought about the lock in taping situation very carefully before agreeing to come onboard the soap which was shot in Zambales.

“Kasi alam kong i-bu-bubble kami tapos hanggang mga December aabutin yung shoot. Kumbaga from July to December kumbaga pabalik balik lang kami, i-la-lock in then iuuwi. Malaking risk siya. Bago siya sa lahat, new experience ito sa lahat. So nung na-experience ko na yung trabahong ginawa namin para sa show, dun na talaga ako na-convince na siguro nga last na ‘to kasi yung pagod na puwede ko pang itrabaho 50 years pa from now, naibigay ko na sa show na ‘to. Pati yung luha, wala na akong maipatak (laughs). Ang dami ko ng gustong gawin para lang talagang ma-prove ko na wala na akong kailangan patunayan,” she said.

Angelica said she is looking forward to a long-awaited break away from the grind of daily tapings. “Ayokong magsalita ng tapos pero di ba malay mo dumating 20 years from now merong role na hindi ko talaga ma-resist. Kumbaga kaya kong lunukin yung pride ko at yung paninindigan ko then wala naman sigurong mawawala sa akin. Pero siguro ngayon, ganun pa rin yung desisyon ko. Siguro kasi for almost 30 years ito naman yung ginawa ko so parang sa kalahati ng buhay ko gusto ko ring ibigay sa sarili ko yung deserve ko rin naman sigurong magpahinga pagdating sa paggawa ng teleserye,” she said,

Angelica also shared that she has several movie projects lined up already after Walang Hanggang Paalam airs its finale episode this month. “May mga nakapila namang gawin pero alam naman nating lahat na sa situation ngayon na pandemic napakahirap mag-develop ng isang project. May mga exciting naman na projects na naka-line up. Exciting kasi hindi ko rin alam kung kailan ito maisasatuparan (laughs),” she said.
