Even though they come from rival stations, Angel Locsin showed her support for Marian Rivera before she launches her new show on GMA-7.
The ABS-CBN actress commented on Marian's Instagram post about her upcoming primetime series, Super Ma'am, which will air its pilot episode this Monday, September 18.
Angel wrote in the comments section: "Good luck, Yan!"
In Super Ma'am, Marian is cast as a teacher who has super powers that she uses to fight mythical creatures called Tamawo.
Her new Kapuso show will be pitted against ABS-CBN's Ang Probinsyano starring Coco Martin.
Angel is currently part of La Luna Sangre, which is pitted against Alyas Robin Hood 2. This Kapuso show is topbilled by Dingdong Dantes, the husband of Marian.
When Angel was asked about possibly competing against Marian, she pointed out, "Sa totoo lang, kami, wala naman kaming pakialam sa ganun, dedma kami sa ganun.
"Basta kami, ginagawa lang namin yung trabaho namin, at pareho kaming nandito para makapagpasaya ng tao—yun yung importante sa amin."
Marian also got a congratulatory message from Rico Gutierrez, the director of the weekly fantasy series Daig Kayo Ng Lola Ko.
Marian appeared as a guest in the pilot episode of Daig Kayo Ng Lola Ko, which features Ms. Gloria Romero.
Netizens praised Angel for her gesture and others hoped that the two actresses would get a chance to work with each other on a movie in the future.
