ANGEL LOCSIN’s “Imortal” was aired without any presscon so they held one last Monday as a thanksgiving presscon because the show initially rated well even if it was shown without much promotion. “I’m really thankful to all those who watched us even if the show was aired suddenly,” says Angel. “At first, I was nervous as I don’t really know how viewers would react to the love affair between a werewolf and a vampire. Nakahinga kami lahat ng maluwag when it did well at sana, magtuloy-tuloy ang suporta sa’min nationwide.”

In her first serial for ABS, “Lobo”, she got nominated as best actress in the international Emmy Awards. What are her chances of being nominated again this time for “Imortal”? “Hindi naman talaga ko nage-expect, but of course, I welcome the honor. Sa ‘Lobo’, nagulat ako sa nomination so I don’t know, basta I’m just doing my best to make sure na maging maayos din ang trabaho ko in ‘Imortal’. What’s more important for me is nagugustuhan ng viewers ang acting ko and so far, maganda na ang feedback that I get. Pero hindi lang ako kundi maging ang katambal kong si John Lloyd Cruz, ang co-stars namin, our directors and the staff, all of us work hard to make sure bawat episode ng ‘Imortal’ is great, pati special effects and the action scenes na ako mismo ang gumagawa ng lahat ng stunts ko.”

With them in “Imortal” are Maricar Reyes as Samantha, Rico Blanco as Lucas, Nina Dolino as Charice, plus Jomari Yllana, Jaime Fabregas, Lara Quigaman, Jake Roxas, Johnny Revilla and Vivian Velez. Is she aware that her fans and those of Glaiza de Castro are making them fight each other as ‘Imortal’ is up against Glaiza’s ‘Grazilda’? “I was told na pati sa internet, we’re pitted against each other. Sana, tigilan nay an dahil gusto ko si Glaiza. Nakatrabaho ko siya noon sa ‘Asian Treasures’ ng GMA and we’re okay. Kaya nga sabi ko sa kanya, basta kami, wag padadala at wag na lang magpaapekto sa mga kantiyawan.”
