Angel Locsin has a message to fans who were dismayed by her return to La Luna Sangre: "Lahat po tayo dito ay nagtutulungan, wala pong kumpitensya dito."



Angel Locsin officially returns to the primetime series La Luna Sangre, which is topbilled by Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.

This time, she portrays a new character named Jacintha Magsaysay, a political strategist who will help Sandrino/Gilbert Imperial (Richard Gutierrez) to win as the President of the Philippines.

While most of the Lobo franchise and La Luna Sangre fans are very happy, Angel's return to the series did not sit well with some fans.

Some KathNiel fans were worried and dismayed that their idols might be left behind in the Kapamilya show.

During her solo press conference earlier, September 7, at ABS-CBN's 9501 Restaurant, Angel said that she was able to read these comments.

The 32-year-old actress related, "May nabasa ako pero nagpapasalamat ako marami talaga yung excited.

"There's parang a few lang siguro na concerned, di naman sila nagwawala pero concerned lang sila siyempre.

"Pero sa akin, huwag po sila... ito po ay show talaga ni Kath at ni Daniel.

"Kung ano man po ang nilalagay dito, mga bagong nagaganap, ay para po ito sa kanila. So lahat po tayo dito ay nagtutulungan, wala pong kumpitensya dito.

"Nagpapasalamat ako dahil noong pilot week, sobrang pasalamat naman sila sa akin at sana ganun din naman ang maramdaman nila ngayon.

"Pwede ko namang hindi ito gawin, e. Okay lang naman yun. Pero magtulungan tayo dito. Hindi naman ako yung makikinabang dito kung hindi sila din."

In a later interview with Angel after the presscon proper, Angel knew that the concern of the fans might be because of KathNiel's previous shows.

She discussed, "Actually, wala naman violent reaction talaga.

"Siguro may concerns lang talaga sila about the past shows, wala naman direkta sa akin.

"Pero siyempre, ano lang sila, isa sa mga sumusuporta sa show so interesado lang sila sa mangyayari, siyempre sa bida.

"Ako naman, tulungan tayo dito wala naman ipapasok ang management na hindi makakatulong dito,

"At ang show na ito, ang makikinabang, siyempre si KathNiel di ba.

"Wala, ayoko talaga siyang isipin sa totoo lang kasi they're very nice sa akin, sa pilot. Super pasalamat sila sakin nung pilot. Kaya ano lang, nabigla or siguro mas naging hooked sa story."

Just this afternoon, Angel responded to a netizen who accused her of stealing the spotlight from KathNiel in the show.

The fan wrote, "Grabi ehh no @143redangel gnda ng balik mo nkuha mo spotlight wala kng isang salita kala ko pinasa muna sa KN ang LSS God bless you"

Angel then responded by saying, "Ang sweet mo [smile emoji] tanong mo sa management yan"

In another tweet, the actress also said, "Nung pilot super thank you kayo sakin for supporting kn, bat galit na galit ka ngayon? Lahat ba nang artistang makakasama nila ibabash mo?"

One fan then admitted that they were traumatized by what happened to KathNiel's previous teleserye Pangako Sa 'Yo.

The fan could be referring to Jodi Sta. Maria and Ian Veneracion's surprise love team, which was well-accepted by the viewers during the show's run in 2015.

Angel told the fan, "Hindi ko po alam. Hindi po ako taga psy. Hindi rin po ako management. Empleyado lang po ako. Thank you."

In another tweet, the Kapamilya actress posted, "Kung lahat nang gusto lang tumulong sa kn ganito pala pagdadaanan, nakakalungkot nmn:( Hindi ko inaangkin, napakiusapan lng :) gusto ko sila"

A KathNiel fan then tweeted Angel apologizing for other fans who are bashing her for her entrance in La Luna Sangre.

This was acknowledged by the actress and replied, "Mabuti naman. Salamat [smile emoji]"

KATHNIEL'S REACTION. It was yesterday, September 6, when Angel was first seen as Jacintha in the fantasy series.

According to Angel, she texted Kathryn prior to the airing of the episode.

She shared, "In fairness kay Kath, tinext ko siya 'See you soon, see you soon.'

"[Sagot niya], 'Yes ate, I'm excited.' Natuwa naman ako kay Kath.

"Mukha naman siyang happy bilang ang daming emoticons at exclamation point dun sa text niya.

"Hindi ko lang siya natext ng maaga agad kasi sikreto pa nga so hindi ko alam kung sino lang ba yung nakakaalam na papasok ako.

"Pero bago umere yung episode, tinext ko siya na parang 'Kath, I'll see you soon, ha.'

"Nagpasintabi na ako kay Kath tapos natuwa naman si Kath."

Angel even admitted that she appreciated how Kathryn and Daniel thanked her when she agreed to do a special part in the show's pilot episode wayback in June.

Smiling, she said, "Marunong sila magpasalamat nuoo pilot. Hindi ko inaasahan kasi na magthethank you sila sa akin.

"In fairness sa mga bagets na ito, marunong magpasalamat, alam nila."

During the first press conference of La Luna Sangre in June, director Cathy Garcia-Molina hinted that some of the characters who were already killed might return in the show's latter part.

Star Creatives creative manager Henry King Quitain explained during Angel's presscon that the new character has already been planned since the show's conception.

He also emphasized that Angel is now a main character on the show and this is not just a guest appearance.

Henry told the press, "From the start po ng La Luna Sangre, alam na namin na dadating ang character ni Jacintha Magsaysay sa kwento.

"Kaya kung matatandaan niyo, si Direk Cathy, noong pilot pa lang na press con, sinabi niya, malay niyo, may mabubuhay na namatay or something like that.

"Kasi from the start po, even our promo, nakalatag po kami, kung kailan siya darating sa show. So from the start po talaga kaya lang nanggulat lang po kami na walang pasabi na andiyan na si Miss Angel Locsin."
