Angel Locsin returns to ABS-CBN's primetime series La Luna Sangre.
She is introduced as Jacinta Magsaysay, a character expected to make a big impact on the lives of Malia (Kathryn Bernardo) and Tristan (Daniel Padilla).
It remains unclear if Jacintha is related to Lia, who was the wife of Mateo (John Lloyd Cruz) and the mother of Malia.
During the pilot week, Lia was believed to have been killed by Sandrino (played by Richard Gutierrez).
When Lia came face to face with Sandrino, she asked him: “Are you okay? Para kang nakakita ng multo.”
Angel makes a comeback three months after she first appeared on the Kapamilya show.
In her Instagram account, Angel posted her photo with Richard on the set and wrote in the caption: "Hindi sa tala sa langit.... kundi sa buwang nakasilip.... Ibigay ang hiling.... nang matang nakapikit.... #LaLunaSangreTheComing"
Netizens came up with funny memes, with some of them poking fun at Richard Gutierrez's character who was visibly shocked upon seeing Angel's character.
