Jacintha's debut sets the Internet ablaze

Primetime viewing gets more intense as award-winning actress Angel Locsin joined the cast of ABS-CBN’s hit fantasy action drama La Luna Sangre as the mysterious Jacintha Magsaysay.

Sandrino (Richard Gutierrez) wants Jacintha, the campaign strategist, on board his team to make sure he wins the presidency.  

“Jacintha is a very mysterious person. She used to live abroad and became popular after she helped a presidential candidate who got involved in a big scandal. She is really good at what she does. Sandrino looked for her so she can help him become the next president of the Philippines,” said Locsin. 

Star Creatives’ Henry Quitain added, “Compared to Lia, Jacintha is a human being. If we watch closely, we can see her sophistication while she speaks and she is affluent. She can keep up with anybody and she speaks her mind.”  

Angel Locsin returns to "La Luna Sangre" playing yet another pivotal role

Netizens warmly received Angel’s surprise entry that effortlessly trended online. Lead star Kathryn Bernardo was also among the many people excited for Angel’s new character. 

“I didn’t have the chance to tell Kathryn earlier since it was a secret. I didn’t know who else knew about my character. However, before the episode aired last night, I already texted her and said ‘Kath, I’ll see you soon.’ The she replied with so many emoticons so I think she’s just as happy as I am,” Angel shared.  

What role will Jacintha play in the lives of Tristan, Malia, and Sandrino? How will she shake things up in the hit primetime series?

La Luna Sangre airs weeknights after FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano on ABS-CBN and on ABS-CBN HD (SkyCable ch 167). Catch up on the show’s past episodes via iWant TV or for Sky subscribers. For more updates, follow @starcreatives on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
