Angel Aquino says her new movie Biktima has nothing to do with ABS-CBN correspondent Ces Orena-Drilon’s hostage experience with the Abu Sayaf. She relates: “Now, of course, when I was there, it was Ces Drilon that I had in mind. Parang I wondered how she felt. Hindi ko pa rin totally mae-experience at mai-immerse ang sarili ko on whatever happened to her.”


Masayang-masaya si Angel Aquino nang humarap sa press conference ng bago niyang pelikula sa Star Cinema, ang Biktima, noong September 14.

Ginanap ang presscon sa Dolce Superclub sa Tomas Morato, Quezon City.

Ang dahilan ng kasiyahan ni Angel ay dahil kumita ang pinagbidahan niyang pelikula, ang Amorosa, na palabas pa hanggang ngayon sa mga sinehan,

Ayon sa aktres, “Yun na nga, sabi ko kanina, buti na lang you were there to promote Amorosa with us, kaya marami rin ang nakapanood.

“At saka, with the help of ABS-CBN, you know, it was really promoted well.

“Kaya siguro maraming na-curious and a lot of people watched it.

“And maybe, naging word of mouth na rin na it was a pretty good movie kaya maraming nanood. I’m so glad.

“I was praying for it but I did not expect that it would turn out really, really good. Thank God.”



NEW MOVIE. Kung maganda ang naging pagtanggap ng mga manonood sa Amorosa, posibleng tumaas naman ang expectation nga mga tao sa bagong pelikula ni Angel, ang Biktima.

Pero ayon sa aktres, “Actually, I don’t know what to expect kasi ang tagal na namin itong ginawa.

“It was two and a half years ago.

"Tapos, nakalimutan ko na siya. Wala na siya sa consciousness ko.

“I was telling my director nga [R.D. Alba]… may mga scenes kasi na parang engraved na in my mind. They were so graphic to me.

"So yun, hindi ko makalimutan yun and, now, it’s all happening.

“I don’t know what to expect. Hindi ko alam ang kinalabasan ng pelikula.”



HOSTAGE. Sa Biktima ay ginagampanan ni Angel ang role ng isang reporter na naging biktima ng rape ng mga nang-hostage sa kanya.

May mga nag-aakala na ang kuwento ng pelikulaay hango sa buhay ng ABS-CBN news anchor na si Ces Oreña-Drilon.

Matatandaang naging hostage si Ces ng mga Abu Sayyaf noong 2008 nang tinangka niyang gawan ng istorya ang mga rebelde para sa kanyang network.

Hindi naman ikinaila ni Angel na kahit daw siya ay napaisip noong una kung tungkol sa karanasang iyon ni Ces ang ginagawa nila.

Saad ng aktres, “Actually, noong pini-film namin ito, nangyari na yung kay Ces Drilon.

"Then, I asked them, at hindi naman daw.

“When he [RD Alba] wrote it, wala pa. Hindi pa nangyayari yung kay Ces Drilon.

“Now, of course, when I was there, it was Ces Drilon that I had in mind.

“Parang I wondered how she felt. Parang ini-imagine ko... of course, I was in a film set.

"Hindi ko pa rin totally mae-experience at mai-immerse ang sarili ko on whatever happened to her.

“And I can’t even come close kung ano yung naging ordeal niya.

“But I hope, I was able to portray well kung ano ang pakiramdam ng isang victim ng isang hostage.

“Parang yung sa Captive din. Pero ito kasi, mas dramatic.

"Yung sa Captive, mas documentary. Na parang nagsawa na lang sa mga hostages nila.”

Ang Captive (2012) ay ang pelikulang idinirek ni Brillante Mendoza kunsaan kabilang din sa cast si Angel.



WITH CESAR MONTANO. Kasama ni Angel sa Biktima si Cesar Montano.

Ayon kay Angel, una silang nagkatrabaho ni Cesar nang mag-guest siya sa dating sitcom nina Cesar at Maricel Soriano sa ABS-CBN.

Kaya nang malaman daw niyang si Cesar ang makakasama niya sa Biktima ay umoo siya agad.

“Kasi, ganoon ang basis ko ng pagtanggap ng project.

“Para sa akin, medyo mahina ang story or hindi ko pa masyadong kilala ang director, but I know I’ll be working with an actor I’ve been wanting to work with, then tatanggapin ko talaga siya.

“It was an opportunity and I grabbed it right away.”

Nalaman din ni Angel na hindi nagpabayad si Cesar sa Biktima.

“We were all so grateful every time that he’s on set and doing his part.

“Kasi, puwede namang hindi. Puwede namang i-shrug off niya na, ‘Ay, bukas na lang ako magsu-shoot.’

“But he was very cooperative, very professional.

“Kapag sinabi niyang darating siya ng ganitong oras, nandoon talaga siya.

“At saka, noong binigyan niya ng importance, despite being an indie movie, binigyan niya ng importansiya, I really appreciate it.”



ZERO LOVELIFE. Natatawa na lang si Angel dahil parang applicable daw talaga sa kanya ang kasabihang "successful sa career, zero naman sa lovelife."

Bukod sa Biktima, meron pa siyang upcoming primetime series sa ABS-CBN, ang Apoy sa Dagat, kasama sina Piolo Pascual at Angelica Panganiban.

“Parang… parang nga!” natatawang pagsang-ayon niya.

“It looks like a blooming career when I’m forty. Hindi ba nakakatawa yun?

"Pero I’m really, really grateful.”

Sa February 7, 2013 ay ipagdiriwang na ni Angel ang kanyang 40th birthday.

“Life indeed begins at forty!” sambit ng aktres.
