Angel Locsin is more than ready for her teleserye comeback after five years.
She is gearing up for ABS-CBN's upcoming series, The General's Daughter.
Through her Instagram post yesterday, January 4, Angel promoted the teaser of her new Kapamilya teleserye. Her caption summed up the past five years of her life when she did not have her own teleserye.
She wrote, "2015 challenged me.
"2016 broke me.
"2017 changed me.
"2018 opened my eyes.
"2019 I’M COMING BACK.
"After 5 years.... This is Angel Locsin, reporting for duty as Rhian Bonifacio."
Angel did not explain why she felt "challenged" in 2015 and why she felt "broken" in 2016.
However, she emphasized that she is "COMING BACK" this 2019 as Rhian Bonifacio on television.
