Angel, Angelica: No ‘Sapawan’ On Set

MANILA, Philippines - Actresses Angel Locsin and Angelica Panganiban have belied reports that they seem to be "competing" with each other while shooting the film, "One More Try," an entry to the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).

"Natatawa nga lang ako 'pag may nababasa ako na parang, 'Ang pagtutuos...' mga gano'n. Wala naman kasing gano'n. Pero siguro 'yung artista, hindi ko pag-iisiipan ng gano'n kasi napaka-professional niya. Wala kaming gano'n," Angel told "The Buzz" in a taped interview aired on Sunday.

She also praised their director, Ruel Bayani, for being able to make each of the characters in the film stand out. "Napakaganda ng pagkakahati-hati ng storya, Na lahat ng characters umangat," Angel added.

On her part, Angelica said," Hindi naman para umabot sa point na magsasapawan 'yung isa't isa kasi alam mong matalinong artista naman 'yung mga kasama mo sa eksena. At saka lumang style na 'yung nagsasapawan."

Meanwhile, Angel expressed her respect for Angelica's acting skills, even claiming herself as a fan of the other since her "Becky days," referring to her role in the film, "Sarah, Ang Munting Prinsesa."

"Sobrang bilib ako sa kakayahan ng babaeng 'to sa pag-arte talaga. Fan na fan talaga 'ko. Becky days pa lang niya, sinubaybayan ko talaga 'yan kasi bilib ako kung papano siya... kung paano niya ibahin 'yung sarili niya from comedy to drama, kontra to bida..." said she, also praising Angelica's "bonggang-bonggang pasensya" when it comes to love.

On the other hand, Angelica commended Angel's kindness.

"Siyempre exciting na nakikita mo 'yung work ethic na isa mo pang ka-trabaho, lalo na kung paano siya mag-alaga ng mga katrabaho niya. Malapit na nga siyang lumutang sa lupa sa sobrang kabaitan niya talaga. Papalutang na siya eh, next to God... gano'n siya kabait," she said.
