Angel Locsin assured fans that she will stay with ABS-CBN amid all the challenges after Congress denied to renew its franchise last year.
She said she chooses to do so, because she can’t bear to leave her Kapamilyas in this time. In an interview with broadcast journalist Jeff Canoy, the actress explained, “Nandito lang ako, kasi hindi ko kayang iwan 'yong mga kaibigan o kapamilya. Hindi mo naman sila iiwan habang naghihirap, 'di ba? Habang may pinagdadaanan, hindi mo 'yan iiwan kapag mahalaga sa’yo. Habang may pinagdadaanan 'yong ABS-CBN, nandito lang ako. It doesn't mean na nakikita mo akong araw-araw, pero I am a Kapamilya pa 'rin. Nandito lang ako.”
While there are no new projects announced for her, Angel shared that she managed to survive through her savings, investments, and endorsement deals, including her earnings from vlogging on YouTube.
“Okay pa naman ako. Hindi ako mayaman na mayaman. Wala po akong ganoon. Siguro ‘yong years na pinagkatiwalaan ako ng tao kahit paano may ipon 'din naman. May kaunting investment. Kaya pa naman mag-survive ng pamilya ko doon. Sa ngayon, pwede naman tayong mag-YouTube, may mga endorsement,” she revealed.
As of the moment, the former “General’s Daughter” star is focusing on the preparations of her wedding to fiancé Neil Arce.
“Siyempre ikakasal din ako so asikasuhin ko muna 'yon 'di ba? May mga bagay muna na siguro na kailangan muna pagtuunan ng pansin.” But she maintained, “Pero nandito lang ako. Nandito lang ako.”
Angel also shared her thoughts on celebrities who have chosen to switch networks and stated that she completely understands their decision.
“I-add ko lang na wala akong judgment sa mga kailangang lumipat. Naiintindihan ko at alam ko na kailangang kumayod para mabuhay. Lahat tayo may iba-ibang pinagdadaanan. At masaya ako kung makahanap sila ng ibang trabaho sa panahong ito at 'yan din naman ang gusto ko, ang nasa maayos na kalagayan ang lahat. Ito lang ang naaangkop para sa akin,” said Angel.
Angel’s most recent project with the Kapamilya network was the weekly show “Iba ‘Yan”, which aired its final episode just last June 27.
