Actress Angel Locsin will be back on primetime TV starting on January 21 with her new series The General’s Daughter, where she takes the lead role.
But it seems that she was experiencing an internal struggle for some time. According to ABS-CBN News, she wanted to resign and almost did so. She was quoted as saying, “Ayaw ko na noon e. As in nagre-resign na ako. May letter na ako at lahat, ganoon kasi feeling ko, hindi ko deserve, 'di ko nagagawa yung trabaho ko. Parang I’m a big disappointment, feeling ko ganoon, [dahil sa] body, hindi ko nagawa yung responsibility ko sa ABS-CBN, basta parang ganoon. Nahiya ako kasi I’m paid e, parang ganoon, kaya akala ko iyon yung proper way kung paano mo i-deal iyon.”
Angel, who last top-billed a TV series (The Legal Wife) five years ago, says the support and encouragement she got from her peers prevented her from quitting. “Kapag nagtrabaho kayo, 'di ba ang sarap ng may boss [who] cares for you at saka makita yung workmate mo na very positive lang, ganon so wala kang time na mag-wallow sa woes mo, sa problema mo sa mundo, so move on ka na.”
