From Mulawin to Darna, Lobo, La Luna Sangre, and the General’s Daughter, Angel Locsin’s acting prowess is without a doubt beyond outstanding. The thirty four year oldactress, commercial model, film producer and fashion designer’s long list of awards and nominations started in 2005 when she was named “Box Office Princess of Philippine Movies” at the Box Office Entertainment Awards and “World’s Sexiest Woman” by men’s magazine FHM. Her first international nomination was at the International Emmy Awards in 2009 when she was nominated as “Best Actress” for her television series “Lobo”. She won “Movie Actress of the Year” and “TV Queen at the Turn of the Millenium” at the PMPC Star Awards for Movie and Television, respectively.
Despite all these fancy jewels in Angel’s crown, the multi-awarded actress remains humble and compassionate not only to her millions of fans but most especially to people in need. Angel was spotted with her fiancé, Neil Arce in Davao giving away a truck load of relief goods worth half a million pesos. In a Facebook post by Philippine Red Cross Chair, Senator Dick Gordon, he said, “ANGEL INDEED. Ms. Angel Locsin, together with her fiancé, Neil Arce, personally went to our Davao del Sur Chapter to donate and volunteer in the distribution of relief goods and hygiene kits for the quake-hit families. She has been supporting PRC (Philippine Red Cross) for a long time and has participated during our relief distributions since Typhoon Ondoy. Thank you, Angel, for trusting the Philippine Red Cross.”
Last Friday, the beautiful actress with a big heart was spotted buying sacks of rice and various grocery items at NDCC Uyanguren in Davao City to personally distribute to the calamity-stricken people. This grand gesture of compassion and humility reaped praise from netizens and fans. Angel was described as a perfect example of Filipino fictional superhero “Darna” – beautiful both inside and out. There was no camera nor media involved apart from the ordinary citizens in the area who took their phones out and brought their gratitude to the actress via social media posts. Angel was clad in a simple outfit composed of a black baseball cap, black basic tee and white jacket.
