Angel Locsin will soon return to action-fantaserye, the genre where people learned to love her as an actress, via the upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye Imortal which pairs her with John Lloyd Cruz. Angel further revealed that while Imortal is a sequel to her past teleserye, Lobo, it has a twist. “Continuation siya ng Lobo. Pero kung sa tingin niyo alam niyo na ‘yung kwento ng Lobo, iba itong Imortal. Ngayon magugulat kayo kasi panibagong mundo naman ‘yung ipapakita namin sa inyo.”
Lobo, which was aired in 2008 and starred Angel and Piolo Pascual, was awarded the Best Telenovela Program in the BANFF World Television Festival and earned Angel a Best Actress nomination from the 37th International Emmy Awards. Angel admitted that she is feeling the pressure to make Imortal as successful as Lobo, but for her, thinking about that too much will not do help. “Sa kahit anong project na ginagawa natin may pressure. Pero hindi na dapat iniisip masyado ‘yun. Dapat ang nasa isip mo lang is kung paano mapapaganda ‘yung trabaho mo. Hindi na dapat nagiisip ng bad vibes. Dapat puro positive things na lang para positive vibes din ‘yung dala mo pagdating sa set. Kapag may pressure kasi mas lalo mong hindi nagagawa nang maayos ‘yung trabaho mo. Dapat hindi ka na lang nagpapaapekto sa pressure.”
She further explained that doing Lobo was a different experience since that was her first teleserye after moving to the Kapamilya network. During that time, she felt she had to prove to the management and to everyone that her move was a good choice. “Mas grabe ang pressure sa Lobo kasi first teleserye ko ‘yun sa ABS-CBN. Kailangan may mapatunayan ako agad. First time ko rin makaranas ng ganung klaseng acting. Dito naman sa Imortal, handa na ako sa kung ano ang ipapagawa sa akin. Dati sa Lobo talaga nasha-shock ako na, ‘Ay! Ganito pala sa ABS-CBN!’ Ang mga tao dito perfectionist.”
Most of Angel’s TV projects are of the action-fantasy genre, Lobo and Imortal included. While many stars are afraid of being typecast, the 25-year-old actress said she doesn’t mind doing action-fantasy over and over again. “Gusto ko talaga ma-identify sa action. ‘Yun talaga ang sinabi ko sa ABS-CBN nung dumating ako. Kasi pagawin mo ako ng fight scene ng alas sais ng umaga, go ako. As much as possible ako talaga ang gumagawa ng fight scenes. Sumasama nga loob ko kapag may double ako. Pero siyempre, kapag kailangan ihagis ako, hindi na talaga ako papayagan, ha ha ha! Baka kasi kapag napilayan ako mas maging cause of delay pa.”
