- Angel Locsin is soon making a comeback via The General’s Daughter.
- She trained hard for this series since she doesn’t have a stunt double.
- This became the reason why she couldn’t avoid getting slightly injured or wounded.
The General’s Daughter serves as Angel Locsin‘s teleserye comeback.
The action-filled series also stars Albert Martinez, Tirso Cruz III, Janice de Belen, Eula Valdez, Maricel Soriano, Paulo Avelino, JC de Vera, Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte. She trained hard for this series since she doesn’t have a stunt double.
Angel took the challenge.
Locsin doesn’t have a double in portraying the role of 1st Lt. Rhian Bonifacio. This became the reason why she couldn’t avoid getting slightly injured or wounded.
“Actually, tinanggap ko at ‘di ko ineexpect na ganun pala siya kahirap pero ako naman kasi, I’m always up ‘pag may mga ganung klaseng challenge, eh. Parang nagigising ako.”
Angel underwent hard training.
In 2015, Angel revealed that she can no longer play Darna due to her spine injury. Her intensive training triggered the development of a disc bulge in her spine. This meant that she can no longer do active stunts.
In a recent Instagram post, Angel accepted her spine injury and learned to adjust.

My spine injury will always be with me and it took me a while to accept that. As a former athlete who used to believe in “mind over matter” to conquer pain, I realized that pain is sometimes just a reminder that we might be pushing ourselves too hard beyond our limits. But it doesn’t mean that you should stop. Don’t go there. PLEASE. Rest for a while. DON’T EVER rush yourself to recovery and NEVER let pressure hinder your body’s healing process. Take your time. Don’t ever feel guilty or sorry. And don’t try to over-compensate just to please others. Focus on what you can do. ACCEPT and learn to ADJUST. After many relapses & tears, Despite being told that I CANNOT anymore, this is me doing kicks again 🙂 Prolly not the way that I used to, but this is fine for now. I’m doing this carefully this time. with the help of my trusted PT and instructors. still a long way to go. If you are suffering from injuries and reading this, I hope your process will not take as long as mine. If it does, that’s fine. You would know when you’re ready to bounce back. Praying for no pain and speedy recovery. If you are among the lucky ones who are not in pain, thanks for taking time to read this long post. I appreciate your effort and I hope that you could help uplift the suffering through awareness and understanding. Cheers to good health!
The series will be Angel’s fifth full-length television series since she joined ABS-CBN in 2008. This led others to tag her as the Queen of Action-Drama Series. Locsin also starred in Mulawin, Darna, Majika, Lobo, Imortal, a cameo appearance on Mulawin vs. Ravena and La Luna Sangre.
