Aga Muhlach and Angel Locsin are very proud of In The Name of Love

Bernie Franco, ABS-CBN
April 17, 2011


Sobrang worth it daw ang pagod nina Aga Muhlach at Angel Locsin para sa kanilang upcoming movie, ang In The Name Of Love na ipapalabas sa May 11. Aminado ang dalawang malaking artista na hindi biro ang pinagdaanan nilang hirap sa pag-shoot ng kanilang movie para siguraduhing maganda ang kalalabasan nito.

"We didn't realize, I didn't realize that it's gonna be this hard," pag-amin ni Aga. "Ngayon lang ako gumawa ng pelikula na talagang mahirap, ang hirap talaga." Ayon pa sa dalawa, kailangan nilang sumayaw para sa pelikula na hindi naman talaga nila ginagawa. "Hindi po talaga ako marunong sumayaw, hindi talaga," pagbabahagi ni Angel sa panayam niya sa The Buzz. "Nung binasa ko 'yung script halos lahat ng ayaw kong gawin, (na) 'di ako comfortable gawin, kailangan kong gawin sa pelikulang ito. Ganun siya kahirap for me." Umaasa na lang daw ang aktres na sana ay nagawa niya nang mabuti ang ipinagawa sa kanya. Dagdag naman ni Aga, "Kailangan pa naming i-rehearse 'yung mga sayaw, kailangang mag-rehearse (ng) mga sayaw na napakahirap na hindi talaga namin ginagawa sa buhay namin." Mahirap din daw na habang sumasayaw ay kailangang mag-project pa ng emosyon.

Kapwa naman inamin ng dalawa na karangalan ang makatrabaho nila ang isat-isa lalo na si Angel na inaming pinangarap niya noong bata na makatrabaho si Aga. Ang nasabing pelikula ay ang 18th anniversary offering ng Star Cinema at idinirehe ni Direk Olivia Lamasan.

Aga Muhlach on Angel Locsin: 'Bilib na bilib ako sa kanya'

Rachelle Siazon, ABS-CBN
December 15, 2010

After keeping his showbiz career on the down low for the past year, Aga Muhlach is looking forward to the showing of his three films by 2011. First off is his movie with Angel Locsin, tentatively scheduled for release in February. "Dapat abangan talaga yung team-up namin dito. It's different from my previous movies kasi there's no lightness. Action-drama siya tapos ang background ng characters namin pareho kaming dancer ni Angel. Aside from that it's my reunion movie with direk Olive Lamasan also so I am excited for the moviegoers to see the final outcome of this project," said Aga during the 16th year of MaAga Ang Pasko kiddie party held at the Philippine International Convention Center last December 10.

Aga further shared that he's really impressed with Angel's dramatic performance as well as her passion for her craft knowing that she's also taping the hit fantaserye Imortal. "Katulad ng sinasabi ko palagi, bilib na bilib ako sa kanya at napapagod ako sa schedule niya talaga dahil she's doing Imortal and the she comes to our set, back to Imortal then to our set again. Masaya siyang katrabaho. Actually patapos na kami. When I come back from the States tuloy-tuloy na ulit yung shooting para makahabol as Valentine offering yung pelikula namin."

The dashing 41-year-old added that he and his family are spending the Christmas holidays in the States. "Yes, tuloy ang vacation namin dun. Dun naman talaga kami halos nagpupunta kapag holiday. Simple lang naman ang celebration. We're just going to be together, tahimik. Siyempre ang importante yung mga bata, they're excited to open their gifts, yung mga ganon lang."

If there's anything he's grateful for this 2010, what would it be? "For me, every year is a good year. Kahit anong mangyari sa ating masama at kung ano mang pagsubok ang pinagdadaanan natin sa buhay, what matters is that we're just lucky to be alive. Importante ma-appreciate mo yun."

At the end of the interview, Aga also expressed his wish to bring joy to Filipino kids by expanding the Jollibee MaAga Ang Pasko fundraising project nationwide. "I just realized na hindi kami basically umaabot sa Visayas and Mindanao. So next year we're thinking of launching it sa Visayas para umabot naman dun yung ganitong events namin 'pag Christmas."

Angel Locsin gears up for her movie with Aga Muhlach

ABS-CBN

Angel Locsin is taking a leave from her upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye Imortal where she co-stars with John Lloyd Cruz, to fly to Japan to shoot parts of her movie with Aga Muhlach. When reporters interviewed Angel on the set of Imortal prior to her departure for Japan, she admitted that there have been times when she would get confused about her characters in the teleserye and in the movie. "Mahirap talaga. Minsan nga nadadala ko 'yung character [sa set ng Imortal]. Napapaisip tuloy ako, 'Sino ba ako ngayon?!' Ha ha ha! Mga Sisa moments ko!"

Angel's character in the movie entitled Huling Sayaw, is a Pinay entertainer in Japan. The film will be directed by Olive Lamasan who also helmed last year's box office hit In My Life which was headlined by Vilma Santos. Angel said she feels blessed about the chance to work with Direk Olive. "Sobrang happy ko na nabigyan ako ng opportunity na makatrabaho si Inang (Director Lamasan's nickname). Napakagaling niya. Lahat ng artistang mahawakan niya sobrang blessed."

The young actress revealed that Direk Olive can be very strict on the set, but her methods only bring out the best in any actor. "Matatakot ka sa kanya sa una. Mapapagalitan ka, sure 'yun. Pero marami kang matututunan sa kanya. Mapapa-level up ka dahil sa kanya. Kailangan mo siyang tapatan. Magaling siya sa puyatan, sa lahat."

Angel is also excited about being Aga's new leading lady. In the course of shooting Huling Sayaw, Angel learned about moer about the actor. "Si Kuya Aga kapag kausap mo napaka-pleasant. Titingnan mo siya, pangiti ngiti lang. Pero kapag nakausap mo na, may lalim. Ang dami niyang alam tungkol sa buhay. 'Yung mga bagay na hindi basta basta maishe-share sa iyo ng ibang artista. Hindi rin kasi siya madamot sa kwento."
