MANILA – Actress Angel Locsin said she does not feel bad over the alleged decision of actor Paulo Avelino to back out of an upcoming series which they are supposed to headline.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, Locsin said she understands that Avelino has a more important personal matter to attend to.

She did not give further details.

“Sinabi sa akin na hindi nga daw matutuloy. May common friend kami na nag-explain na mayroon yatang personal problem si Paulo na kailangan niya i-prioritize. Hindi ko alam kung nai-share niya sa inyo, pero 'yun lang ang masasabi ko. Naiintindihan ko naman iyon, kailangan niya talaga unahin yun,” she said.

Locsin, however, said she would definitely feel offended if Avelino backed out because he just does not want to work with her.

“Kung ako ang dahilan, siguro magtatampo ako. Anong ginawa ko? Baka gusto mo naman ako subukan, kaya ko rin naman umarte. Pero hindi naman iyon ang dahilan. Siguro baka may ibang pagkakataon pa. Siguro hindi lang ito,” she said.

Locsin said she has heard a lot about Avelino, although she has yet to meet the newbie Kapamilya actor.

“Yung project kasi na ito, originally si Paulo daw ang ka-love team although hindi ko pa naman nakakausap si Paulo. Actually hindi ko alam kung nagkita na kami ever. Alam ko lang na magaling siyang artista,” she said.

Reports say that the soap Locsin is talking about will also feature Maja Salvador and Jericho Rosales. The working title of the supposed upcoming series is “Hanggang Kailan Kita Mamahalin.”
