Richard Gutierrez is one of the most anticipated actors to have joined the supernatural-themed teleserye, “La Luna Sangre.” It is also his first project with ABS-CBN after transferring from GMA Network.
When people found out that he would be part of the show – along with his former girlfriend, Angel Locsin – they immediately set their eyes on the two actors. After all, what would happen if the two ex-lovers appear in the same show?
Viewers of the series expressed their opinions when they saw Angel display her typical excellent acting prowess onscreen. However, there were some who highly criticized her and said that she might be overshadowing the two main stars of the show, Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo.
According to ABS-CBN News, Richard Gutierrez came in his co-star’s defense and told people shouldn’t bash Angel at all. In an interview, he said:
“Nakakalungkot siyempre di ba, pero tigilan na lang nila ang pang-ba-bash. Wala naman mabuting nadudulot ‘yon. I think we should just be thankful na mayroon isang klaseng show at mayroon katulad ni Angel na nagbibigay ligaya sa mga tao.”
The source cited that viewers started to bash Angel when she came in the show to play the character of Jacintha Magsaysay. Angel, for her part, said that she wasn’t competing with either of the young actors. She said in a statement:
“Huwag po kayong mag-alala: ito po ay show ni Kathryn at Daniel. Kung anuman po ang mangyayari dito at mga bagong nagaganap ay para sa kanila. Lahat po tayo ay nagtutulungan at wala pong kompetensiya dito.”
Meanwhile, Henry Quitain, who is the creative head of Star Creatives (the production unit behind the show), explained that Angel’s character has always been an integral part of the show since she also appeared in the show’s predecessor, “Imortal.”
Kathryn and Daniel also pleaded to the public to stop the unnecessary bashing. The “Teen Queen” said:
“Siguro ‘yong mga tao na kung ano-ano nasasabi online, sana maiwasan. Kasi hindi nila alam ‘yong epekto sa ibang tao.”
“Ang internet malaking tulong ‘yan para sa ‘ting lahat. Marami tayong impormasyong nakukuha pero huwag tayong mag-spread ng bad vibes.”
