Angelica Panganiban and Angel Locsin believes that their feud in the past made their friendship even stronger.

Angel said,“May mga pinagdaanan kami sa past, pero I think kinailangan yun.”

Angelica replied,"Dun siguro nakita yung magic ng lahat. Parang may mga bagay nga na hindi naman talaga sa umpisa perfect na perfect kayo sa isa’t isa bilang magkaibigan.”

To recall, Angelica and Angel did a movie together titled "One More Try," they had a gap, and when they did their confrontation scene in the movie, it turned into a real fight.

Angelica recalled, “I guess napakaimportante ding part ng pinagdaanan namin sa friendship namin dun sa mangyayari sa amin sa pelikula. Parang, in a way, may touch siya ng ganun, so I’m very excited na mas makilala ko pa uli si Angel. Siyempre ilang years ago na yun, five years ago, parang ang daming nagbabago. Alam ninyo, buwan-buwan ang daming nagbabago sa buhay ng isang tao. So, nakaka-excite na makita yung mga developments kung ano ang nagawa ng time sa aming dalawa.”

What are their qualities which they both like about each other?

Angel said, “Alam mo kasi si Gel, everything kay Gel, real, totoo. At isa yun sa mga na-appreciate ko, lalo na sa mundong ito. Yun din siguro ang dahilan kung bakit gustung-gusto ko siyang panoorin dahil lumalabas talaga ang pagiging totoo niya. Bilang katrabaho, gusto ko rin yun kasi makikita mo yung emotions, yung lahat. Yun ang isa sa na-appreciate ko kay Gel. Saka maalaga siyang tao, iba siya, totoo… mabuting kaibigan. Ever since naman, kahit ano ang nangyari, hindi naman nawala yung respeto ko sa kanya. Yun siya, e, karespe-respeto naman talaga, nirerespeto ko siya kung ano siya.”

On the other hand, Angelica replied,“Alam ninyo dati, para nao-OA-yan ako sa kanya. Parang, ‘Bait naman nito, parang di totoo, ‘no?’ OA, ang daming ginagawa, asikaso nang asikaso, sobrang bait. Pero yun pala talaga siya. Nakilala ko na ganun pala talaga siya, nakakatuwa. Ngayon, kung mas may maalaga, siya yun. Sobrang malambing, hindi nakakalimot.”

When asked what the real reason of their conflict was....

“Siguro yung mga ganun, kaya rin siguro nag-mature siya sa mas magandang epekto, dahil hindi na namin pinalaki yung mga bagay na hindi rin naman nakatulong sa aming dalawa, di ba? I believe na parehas kaming natuto sa mga hindi magandang nangyari sa amin. I think, kung hindi kami natuto, hindi kami aabot sa ganito, na magiging mature enough kami para gumawa uli ng isang proyekto na magkasama,” stressed Angelica.

Angelica and Angel will be doing a movie for Star Cinema together with Richard Gutierrez. Angel did projects with Richard before.

“Well, bagung-bago yung nangyaring team-up ngayon, especially kasama namin si Richard. Ito, hindi naman namin first time ni Angel na magkaroon ng trabaho, kami [ni Richard], first time namin magtrabaho. Iba talaga, ibang flavors siguro, ibang klaseng team-up yung makikita. Depende kung ano ang kalalabasan nito, so ayun.Ako naman, bago ko pa narinig yung story, sinabi sa akin na, ‘Are you okay working with Chard and Angelica?’ ‘Game, kailan, anong oras ang call time ko?’ Yun agad ang nasagot ko. I’m very excited din na makatrabaho uli si Gel after One More Try. Si Chard naman, after ten years, sobrang na-miss ko siyang katrabaho. Exciting kung paano kami uli sa eksena. Pareho pa rin kaya yung mga nuances namin pag kailangan naming humingi ng tulong sa isa’t isa? Nakakatuwa, I’m very excited for Chard. Exciting, tingnan namin yung dynamics naming lahat," Angel said.
