Angel Locsin on her alleged romance with Azkal Phil Younghusband

ANGEL LOCSIN feels sad as “Imortal” is now on its last three weeks with its last taping day on Tuesday. They’re taping day and night as leading man John Lloyd Cruz is leaving soon to join the Star Magic tour in the U.S. After that, Lloydie will take a much deserved 3-week vacation before starting his movie with the Kanto Boys of Billy Crawford, Luis Manzano and Vhong Navarro. As for Angel, she’ll focus on finishing her movie with Aga Muhlach, now titled “In the Name of Love”, which is due to be shown on May 11.

“It’s a blessing to be a part of a big project like ‘Imortal’,” she says. “We’re supposed to run for 26 weeks but since it’s a hit, it was extended to 30 weeks and now, it’s about to end. It’s one of the most memorable shows I’ve ever done. All the action scenes, pinaghirapan namin as we have no doubles in our stunt. I’d like to thank Directors Jerry Sineneng, Lester Pimentel and Richard Somes for coming up with truly fantastic ideas that hooked viewers to the show. I also want to thank all viewers na tumutok sa show. Humanda sila sa huling laban ng mga bampira at lobo. As Lia, I will regain my memory and recall our love ni Lloydie as Mateo. We will fight for our love and for peace between our warring families but a new prophecy will threaten all of us. Kakaibang ending ang naghihintay sa viewers and not the usual ones they’re used to. Our positioning is end of the world na ‘to. Ubusan ng lahi.”

Is she and Azkal’s Phil Younghusband now playing beautiful music together? “We’ve gone out but only as friends. Right now, I’m just so busy to focus on anything else. Right after the film with Aga, I’m starting the 20th anniversary presentation of ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’, a new movie with Bea Alonzo and me, directed by Lauren Dyogi to be shown in September. Then there’s also a project that I will do in Indonesia with Indonesian actors.”
