Yesterday, September 27, Angel Locsin posted a clip of her doing her own stunt on the set of The General’s Daughter. In the video, Angel does an impressive backflip into the water and proceeds to swim like it’s nothing.
A lot of fans and celebs are praising Angel. JC De Vera, who plays Angel's love interest on the teleserye, was so amazed that he regrammed the video. “Iba ka talaga. Ang nag-iisa!” JC wrote. “Walang ibang gagawa niyan kung hindi ikaw lang.”
Chito Miranda joked, "Sira ka talaga! Todo hataw pa yung pag-flip, e. Ingatan mo nga sarili mo! Lalo na likod mo! Tigas ng ulo...Pero kahit ano sabihin ko astig ka pa rin talaga."
For years, Angel has been undergoing physical therapy for her spinal injury. She got it in 2015 after doing intensive training for various roles, including her return as Darna (which she was eventually pulled out from, and will now be played by Jane de Leon).
Last year, the actress revealed that she still does stunts for The General’s Daughter since she portrays a soldier, but she’s more careful this time around. “Ingat-ingat na lang din talaga. Hindi na po puwede na gaya ng dati, na malikot. Ngayon, after ng mga eksena, ice pack.”
