One of the most pioneers of Star Magic, Angelica Panganiban, is known for her strong and feisty personality. Her intimidating yet funny character and her astounding acting skills make her stay in the biz. What makes her irreplaceable is her realness. Angelica has always been outspoken and never held back in saying her thoughts.
This January, we’re not just going to experience Angelica’s comedic acts in her regular show Banana Sundae. We’re also going to witness her acting chops on the big screen in the upcoming Star Cinema movie titled Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes. Angelica can’t help but brag about this project because she will be working with veteran star Judy Ann Santos. Not everyone gets to work with showbiz pillars, especially in movies, that’s why Angelica said that a lot of celebrities are probably feeling envious of her right now.
“So, I’m sure, ang daming artista ngayon na gustong maglaslas, ‘Bakit hindi ako yung andiyan, bakit siya?” said Angelica during the press conference of Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes.
This isn’t the first time Angelica will be working with Judy Ann. Both of them starred in ABS-CBN’s primetime drama series in 2001, Sa Puso Ko Iingtan Ka, where Judy Ann played as Patricia Lizandro Montecillo and Angelica as Abby De Guzman.
At siyempre noon, bago ko pa siya nakatrabaho sa Sa Puso Ko Iingtan Ka, talagang pinapangarap ko na ‘Sana makatrabaho ko ‘yan katulad nila Ate Juday, ganyan.
“Noong naktrabaho ko na siya sa Sa Puso, hindi ako nagsasalita nun. Sa taping, sobra akong tahimik. Okay lang na makikinig na lamang ako sa mga kuwento niya. At tatawa na lang ako on the side. Ngayon, confident na ako, kaya ko nang makipagkuwentuhan dito, bahala na. Lalamunin ko na yung hiya ko, yung pagiging starstruck ko sa kanya, kaya ko ‘to, ganun,”said Angelica as she reminisced her first experience working with the renowned star almost 20 years ago.
Judy Ann, on the other hand, said that she’s equally honored to be working again with Angelica. She even commended the actress and said that she felt intimidated because of her remarkable skills in comedy.
“First project namin ni Angelica together after such a long time. Of course, it’s a comedy film. happy lang siya. Walang connection sa kapaligiran o sa kumonidad. Tungkol lang sa amin. Kaming dalawa lang [ni Angelica],” said the Queen of Philippine Soap Opera in an interview with Star Cinema last December.
Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes is set for releasing this coming January 17. Actors JC de Vera and Joross Gamboa also join Angelica and Judy Ann in the 2018 comedy film produced by Star cinema.
