Angel Locsin had nothing but kind words to the director of The General’s Daughter, Manny Palo.
During the press conference of her first ever teleserye under Dreamscape, for her prime time comeback after a few years of hiatus, she shared what’s it like to work with Palo as a director.
“Si Direk Manny Palo kasi is brilliant. Ang swerte namin na nagkaroon kami ng direktor na alam niya kung anong gagawin. Siya kasi yung kaya niya kaming i-control lahat. Kasi kahit anong sabihin namin sa kanya, memorize niya yung script so hindi namin siya maloloko.”
Locsin added that because the director knows what he is doing, they often finish their taping schedules on time.
“Alam niya yung gagawin niyo sa bawat eksena kaya ang bilis bilis din niya mag shoot. Natatapos namin yung schedule namin. Plus ang gaan din niya ka-trabaho.”
The actress then addressed her remark that director Palo is a “terror” on the set, saying that others may only view him that way maybe because he had a bad day or someone did something wrong. However, she thinks that he’s really kind and caring.
“Sabi ng iba terror daw si Direk Manny. Siguro pag may mali ka, ganon. Or siguro, bad day lang si direk pero he’s really nice. Actually ang bait ni direk. At maalaga siya sa mga tao. “
She even admitted that the cast sometimes makes fun of the director whenever he gets angry.
“Minsan pinapagtawanan namin pag nagwawala siya pero part niya na yun eh. Parang hindi pwedeng hindi eh. Boring. Boring yung set. At umpisa palang sinabi niya ‘walang diva sa inyo ha, ako lang ang diva,’ kaya siya lang ang diva ganon. “
On the other hand, Locsin admitted that her character on the series is her most complicated role thus far. She has also praised her co-stars.
“Masasabi ko na I think eto yung pinaka-complex [and] complicated na character na gagawin ko. Mahirap po siya. Actually mga characters po namin, mahirap gawin. Pero fun, kasi yung mga ka-eksena ko po ang gagaling umarte so nakakakuha po ako sa kanila ng emosyon.”
The General’s Daughter also stars big names such as Paulo Avelino, Arjo Atayde, Tirso Cruz III, Albert Martinez, Eula Valdez, Janice de Belen, and Maricel Soriano.
The General’s Daughter airs weeknights on the ABS-CBN network.

The series stars Adrian Alandy, Dimples Romana, Beauty Gonzalez and the busiest actor in the industry, Albert Martinez.
Get to know the characters.
Romina (Beauty) struggles to give comfort to her family, especially her mother. She found happiness in her boyfriend, Carlos (Adrian). They plan to pursue their dreams together and decide to get married.
Romina works as a secretary for Robert (Albert) who owns the company. Robert has a mean and conceited daughter, Daniela (Dimples) who has history with Carlos. Romina gets raped by an unknown man before she gets married to Carlos.
Carlos blamed her for her unfortunate fate and used this as an excuse to break up with her. Adding salt to the wound, she gets pregnant as a result of the horrific act. In her moment of despair, she took shelter and refuge in Robert. They eventually fall in love and become lovers.
Daniela, however, tries so hard to get in their way and tear them apart. She treats Romina unfairly and accuses her of being a gold digger. Their conflict will push Daniela to run away and live on her own. When she gets back, she already has a daughter, Margaret (Andrea Brillantes), and married to Carlos. Daniela and her family’s return marks her quest to get the whole share of her father’s inheritance.
