Award-winning actress Angelica Panganiban is set portray two characters in ABS-CBN upcoming teleserye Apoy sa Dagat. The said teleserye which is deemed as the Kapamilya network's next grand project is slated for release later this year.
In an interview with ABS-CBN news after the story conference for Apoy Sa Dagat, Angelica confirmed that she will be playing a dual role in the series.
"Sobrang challenging dahil dalawang character 'yung gagampanan ko. Doon pa lang kaabang-abang na siya," Angelica Panganiban said.
According to leading man Piolo Pascual, Angelica's characters in Apoy Sa Dagat will play a vital part in resolving the conflicts of the show's plot.
"The story's so rich, ang daming sanga, ang daming mangyayari sa story. But, of course, ang essential part of the story will be Angelica, who's playing a dual role. Siya 'yung magtatagpi-tagpi lahat nung connections ng bawat character, and all of us are correlated and would have to co-exist with her para ma-solve niya 'yung conflicts sa buhay niya," shared Piolo.
Angelica Panganiban said she feels like in heaven being a part of this ABS-CBN big project. "Parang hindi ako makapaniwala na parang part ako ng isang sobrang laking project. Tapos grabe 'yung mga makakatrabaho ko, makakasama ko, hindi lang mga artista kundi 'yung mga bumubuo ng buong proyekto," she said.
Apoy Sa Dagat will shoot most of its scenes at sea and we can expect that a lot of skin will be bared in the series. "Basically kasi nasa dagat kami, so doon pa lang given na siya," said Angelica.
Angelica Panganiban will be joined by Piolo Pascual, Diether Ocampo, Angel Aquino, Liza Lorena and Sylvia Sanchez in Apoy Sa Dagat. This will mark Angelica's teleserye comeback after Rubi in 2010 where she also got to work with Diether.
Apoy is another ABS-CBN teleserye to watch out for what with its exciting and challenging plot plus an ensemble of best actors in the country. We simply just can't wait.
