On the night when Kapamilya teleserye The General’s Daughter was born, spectators were impressed with the action-packed underwater scenes done by its lead actress, Angel Locsin in the West Philippine Sea. It was then followed by more breathtaking stunts such as a synchronized knife fighting sequence, martial arts–inspired brawls, and hanging under a moving truck to name a few.
But, there’s certainly a lot more Angel could offer and she has served one last night when she dauntlessly rappelled up a towering building for #TGDHulihan. In the said scene, Angel’s character had to race with time to catch the biggest villain of all – her adoptive father, Tiyago (Tirso Cruz III) – who is set to flee from his felonies via private aircraft; hence, her ‘buwis-buhay’ climb to the helipad.
Angel dashes to her Instagram account to post documentation of her intense death-defying feat that stirred mixed reactions from netizens. Celebrities including her beau, Neil Arce had good words for her boldness.
There were fans who commended her tough dedication for her craft. Meanwhile some expressed their worry and concern over the actress’ health given the history of a back problem that forced her to withdraw from doing the ‘Darna’ role. Those who still doubt the actress’ claims of doing her death-defying stunts without the aid of a body double may check out her Instagram feed. In there, Angel proudly bears her bruises and wounds like badges of honor.
Indeed, Angel never fails to serve everyone a little surprise every now and then; and she’s become quite the epitome of #BuwisBuhay. After all, she is the only actress who takes a hold of an extensive resume of ‘astig’ action heroine roles.
Watch out for Angel’s next nail-biting action scenes in The General’s Daughter, weeknights in Primetime Bida.
