MANILA, Jan 17 (Mabuhay) – Versatile actress Angelica Panganiban is all set to prove her talents once more as she top bills Star Cinema’s kick off movie titled “Bulong” this year.
In an interview with “E-Live” on Saturday, Panganiban confessed that she was challenged to do this movie because she has been doing heavy drama ever since.
“Bago kasi yung horror sa akin. Dati nakagawa [na] ako [ng horror pero] ako yung multo. Mahirap siya kasi siyempre yung imagination mo, pinaglalaruan yung isip mo so mahirap na masaya,” she said.
But more than this, Panganiban disclosed that she considers herself lucky to be given the chance to work with actor comedian Vhong Navarro in the salvo movie.
“Thankful din ako. Maraming gustong makatrabaho si Vhong dahil sa generation niya, siya yung pinakamahusay na komedyante,” she said.
According to her, the comedy aspect of the film allowed her to be a little “laid back” which helped her in her acting.
“Ang maganda naman kasi sa Bulong nagko-comedy kami so kahit mukang tanga na yung reaksyon ko, okay lang,” she said breaking into laughter.
Panganiban was recently recognized as the Best Comedy Actress by the PMPC in its 24th Star Awards for TV.
Meanwhile, Navarro is also ecstatic about working with Panganiban.
“Talagang pinapangarap kong makatrabaho ka kasi nung unang trabaho natin, Separada pa. Ngayon dalaga ka na, nakatrabaho kita ulit…I’m happy na tinanggap mo yung project thank you at marami ako natutunan sa yo magaling kang artista, magaling kang komedyante. You’re perfect,” he said.
“Bulong” will be shown in theaters nationwide on February 2, 2011.(MNS)
