Angel Locsin recounts her “raketera” days and going to the same audition as Solenn Heussaff!




Can you imagine not having Angel Locsin as Alwina or Darna? Can you imagine the entertainment industry without her legacy? It is hard to picture but when she’s starting out as commercial model, being famous and well-known didn’t even cross her mind, her main goal then is to earn and save for her father’s eye surgery.


On Matteo Guidicelli’s podcast, MattRuns, the actress recounts her “raketera” days when she worked hard, hustled, and went to every fashion shows and auditions that came her way. But Angel’s motivation isn’t about being famous or making a name of her own, she worked hard to earn a living, help her family for their day-to-day expenses, and save money never did she know, one audition will change her life forever.


“Bulag kasi ‘yung tatay ko so naghahanap ako ng way para makacontribute sa bahay. Isa akong batang raketera; may fashion show? Game! Auditon? Game! Pero hindi sumasagi sa isip ko na pwede akong mag-artista kasi sa pamilya ko wala namang showbiz, napakasimpleng tao ng pamilya ko.”




Angel Locsin has been into a lot of auditions when she was starting and she has some fun stories about them one of which is her constant encounter with Solenn Heussaff during auditions.


“Si Solenn [Heussaff] lagi kong nakakasabay sa mga VTR, nagcocommute ako mula Caloocan papuntang Makati so nakailang bus ako tapos mag-MRT pa, ang pawis ko, diretso ako audition, pawis ka pa rin naman, haggard ka pa rin, papasok si Solenn galing kotse, ang ganda-ganda ni Solenn talaga ‘yung gusto ko na lang umuwi kasi alam mong hindi ka makukuha.”


Competition in the entertainment industry is tight especially to those who are just starting out. On one highly coveted role, hundreds of auditionees with a lot of potential line up, one will get lucky and others have to go home and wait for another audition and hope for a better result.


At present, Solenn Heussaff and Angel Locsin are two of the most well-known and admired personalities in the biz and even though they started out auditioning for the same parts, they both succeeded in their chosen paths and both leaving their marks in the industry not only through the shows/movies they starred in but through their advocacies and causes they support!
