Angel Locsin's long-held dream to have a movie with Aga Muhlach finally comes true

"Halos lahat naman ng artistang babae, isa 'yan sa mga nasa check- box nila, 'Sino ang gusto mong makatrabaho?' Siyempre, unang-una diyan si Kuya Aga talaga," says Angel Locsin about working with Aga Muhlach in her next movie project.


Angel Locsin is thrilled over her upcoming movie with Aga Muhlach.

In an interview with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press at the YES! 10th anniversary party, the actress was hesitant at first to talk about her movie with Aga. She just gave us a little hint about her role.

"Ngayon, medyo nagre-ready na akong mag-research tungkol sa mga bagay-bagay," she said. "'Yong character ko kasi, medyo challenging talaga siya. Hindi pa ako allowed at saka gusto ko, surprise din. Basta lahat ng bagay na hindi n'yo pa ako nakikitang gawin, nandoon talaga.

She added, "Hindi ko pa alam kung allowed na ako magsalita. Para safe ako at di ako mapagalitan, hindi ko na lang po sasabihin. Pero something different for Kuya Aga and para sa akin."

The YES! party was held last Tuesday, February 23, at the NBC Tent, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Angel arrived with friend Bubbles Paraiso a little past 11 p.m.

Angel, 24, has been very vocal about her dream to work with Aga. So, when she found out that her movie with the matinee idol is pushing through, she became excited and nervous at the same time.

"Grabe 'yong tensyon ko, 'tapos si Kuya Aga pa," she said. "Hindi talaga ako ganoon ka-comfortable gawin [yung role] kasi hindi ko pa nagagawa. Excited din ako kasi... Ako, grabe, pinapanood ko ang mga pelikula ni Kuya Aga. Hindi ko pa siya nakikita na gumawa ng ganung klaseng character."

Angel, who is now being managed by Aga's talent manager Ethel Ramos, is also happy that she was given the chance to work with the 40-year-old actor. (CLICK HERE to read related article.)

"Halos lahat naman ng artistang babae, isa 'yan sa mga nasa check-box nila, 'Sino ang gusto mong makatrabaho?' Siyempre, unang-una diyan si Kuya Aga talaga. Pag-transfer ko pa lang [sa ABS-CBN], sinabi ko na talaga na gusto kong makatrabaho si Kuya Aga," she said.

The Kapamilya star has yet to talk with Aga since getting Manay Ethel as her new manager after leaving Becky Aguila's talent management.

"Hindi pa po kami nakakapag-usap. Mag-uusap pa lang po kami ni Kuya Aga. Kahit kami ni Manay, inaayos pa namin ang mga bagay-bagay. Pero I'm happy na okay kami ni Manay. Tapos, medyo comfortable. Wala pa kaming isang buwan, pero smooth-smooth naman," she related.

KOKEY@AKO.During the interview, Angel also explained her side about reports that she was reluctant in accepting her supposed next project with ABS-CBN, the fantaserye Kokey@Ako. Angel said she was just misinterpreted.

She explained, "Sa akin kasi, dapat nauna ang presentation ng JLC [John Lloyd Cruz] movie. Since hindi pa naman tapos ang script ng JLC, in-offer 'yong Kokey. So, parang siguro na-misinterpret na parang ayaw. Kung papipiliin naman ako, di ba, parang gusto kong makatrabaho si John Lloyd? Tapos medyo challenging [pa ang role]. Tapos 'yon ang in-offer sa akin. So, baka na-misinterpret lang."

The actress added that she would be more than willing to do the show. "Gusto kong gawin. Gusto kong makatrabaho si Direk Wenn [Deramas] at gusto kong makasama si Vhong [Navarro], siyempre. Pero mahirap kasi mangialam sa schedule din, e. Lalo na ngayon na nagkasabay-sabay din."

When asked if Kokey@Ako would come first before her movie with Aga, Angel replied, "Ako, naghihintay ng schedule. Naghihintay lang ako kung ano ang desisyon nila. Basta gusto ko lang munang kumilos. Medyo matagal na rin akong hindi nagte-taping. So, kung anuman ang magiging desisyon ng ABS-CBN, susundin ko. Siyempre, sila naman ang boss ko."

Angel's last regular TV project was the primetime series Only You.
