Recently, accesspinoy made an article about Angel Locsin's career not taking off again after transferring to ABS-CBN. Here's the exact paragraph courtesy of accesspinoy.com:
"..sa pag-explain nina Marian and Popoy na di totoo ang isyu (that Marian will transfer to ABS-CBN), nabanggit somehow at indirectly ang pangalan ni Angel. Public knowledge ang controversial na paglipat ng hot property noon ng GMA-7 sa ABS-CBN. Pero nang makalipat na nga, di na raw nag-take off ulit ang career ng dalaga. So bakit pa susunod si Marian sa mga yapak ni Angel gayong na-prove na ng una na di effective kung lilipat siya sa Dos especially now na siya ang nagre-reyna sa Siyete. Di ma-take ni Marian ang lumaos kung lilipat man siya sa Dos tulad ni Angel."
Did Marian and her talent manager Popoy really say that Angel Locsin's career did not take-off when she transferred to ABS-CBN? Uh-oh.
Here are facts. When Angel transferred to ABS, she was the talk of the town for months. She made a big and high-rating teleserye "Lobo" which was even noticed by a prestigious international award giving body. Angel was even nominated as Best Actress in another international award giving organization. None of Marian's TV projects was ever given such honor. She made a movie called "Love Me Again", which in fact earned more than some (or all?) of Marian Rivera's movies. She got a best actress trophy for one of her MMK episodes. She became one of the frontrunners of celebrities doing humanitarian work during the Ondoy/Pepeng devastation. She is still being talked about effortlessly because of her love issues and her charity projects. She has a lot of good projects ahead of her; a movie with AGA, Kokey, and a teleserye with John Lloyd Cruz. That's only for 2010.
Marian and her manager might have said that because we think Marian's career will not likely take-off again whether in GMA or in ABS-CBN. Unless she does Mulawin 2, or Asian Treasures 2, there's no way she's gonna rise again (as high as she did in her Marimar and Dyesebel years). Her movies were not very successful and we don't hear another one coming soon. One was even cancelled. Her "Tadyang" was a failure and her Darna did not rate as good as Angel's.
The future for her? We don't know. If she stays with GMA, she might do more team-ups with Dingdong and maybe more telefantasyas. But what if she grows too old for lovetams? With no acting-award on her belt, she may lose to Angel Locsin who now has stronger staying power thanks to her acting skills.
What do you think?
