Primetime viewing gets more intense as award-winning actress Angel Locsin joins the cast of ABS-CBN’s hit fantasy action drama “La Luna Sangre” as the mysterious Jacintha Magsaysay.
Angel plays Jacintha, the campaign strategist Sandrino (Richard Gutierrez) wants on board his team to make sure he wins the presidency.
“Jacintha is a very mysterious person. She used to live abroad and became popular after she helped a presidential candidate, who got involved in a big scandal, win. She is really good at what she does, so Sandrino looked for her so she can help him become the next president of the Philippines,” said Angel.
Star Creatives creative Manager Henry Quitain added, “Compared to Lia, Jacintha is a human being. If we watch closely, we can see her sophistication while she speaks and she is affluent. She can keep up with anybody and she speaks her mind.”
Netizens warmly received Angel’s surprise entry that effortlessly trended online. Lead star Kathryn Bernardo was also among the many people excited for Angel’s new character.
“I didn’t have the chance to tell Kathryn earlier since it was a secret. I didn’t know who else knew about my character. However, before the episode aired last night, I already texted her and said ‘Kath, I’ll see you soon.’ The she replied with so many emoticons so I think she’s just as happy as I am,” Angel shared.
What role will Jacintha play in the lives of Tristan, Malia, and Sandrino? How will she shake things up in the hit primetime series?
