Angelica Panganiban and Angels That Slap Really, Really Hard


Angelica Panganiban's catfight scene with Angel Aquino on their upcoming soap "Apoy Sa Dagat" is quite tame when compared with the former's slap scene with Angel Locsin in the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry "One More Try."

Two angels, several slaps. Pak, pak, pak.

"Siguro karma ko," Panganiban said in jest during the press conference for "Apoy Sa Dagat" when it was pointed out to her that in two consecutive projects, she figured in emotionally charged confrontation scenes.

As to whom between the two Angels slaps harder, Panganiban's quick retort was, "Si Angel [Locsin] po. Si Darna."

She rationalized, though, that she knew where Locsin's character in the movie was coming from, and that she fully understood the demand of the latter's role.

"Siguro kasi naman doon sa movie ay talaga namang mas matindi ang pinaghugutan niya [ng emosyon]," she explained.

"Eh, si Adriana [Angel Aquino] echosera siya. Naiinis lang siya sa akin so pa-sweet pa 'yung sampal niya. Mas gusto ko 'yung level noon."

After that highly charged scene, her co-star, Panganiban said, was polite enough to try and "appease" her that it was all for art's sake.

"Opo, besohan, showbiz-an. 'O, nasaktan ba kita?'"

Panganiban was then asked if the slapping scenes traumatized her. Recall that there were rumors that she and Locsin hurt each other with the slap that was "delivered" in "One More Try."

"Actually, alam n'yo sa mga ganoon [eksena] parang sila pa 'yung [worried]. 'Sorry, ha, baka nasaktan ka.' Siyempre ayaw mo naman na madehado sila at sasabihin mo na, 'Wag malakas, ha.' Hindi naman puwedeng gano'n," she pointed out.

"Bilang artista at nananampal ay alam ko rin 'yun kasi kailangan nilang gawin 'yon pero talaga namang doon ka huhugot. Kapag na-receive mo 'yung sampal na 'yon, mas nakakadagdag sa emotions mo."

"Minsan, 'pag hindi natuloy [ay] para mo nang gustong iuntog [ang kaeksena mo at tanungin,] 'Umiwas ka?'" she explained.

Panganiban believes that doing such scenes is simply part of her job as actor.

"Malaking tulong 'yon sa tingin ko and ayokong mag-worry sila. Trabaho 'yon and parte ng trabaho na talagang masasaktan ka. Sabi ko nga, nu'ng huling taping namin, kasi buong araw akala ko ay mamamatay na ako- nu'ng last scene ay may kissing scene kami ni Papa P [Piolo]. …
