Angelica Panganiban regrets refusing role in ‘Four Sisters and a Wedding’
Angelica Panganiban admitted that she regrets turning down a role for the 2013 hit film “Four Sisters and a Wedding,” which she has not seen since it was released.
The actress made this confession in an interview with Boy Abunda on the latter’s YouTube channel yesterday, Dec. 1. Panganiban was asked if she ever regretted refusing a movie role upon watching the finished film.
“Yung ‘Four Sisters [and a Wedding],’ Tito Boy,” she told Abunda. “Hanggang ngayon, hindi ko siya pinapanood.” (“Four Sisters and a Wedding,” Tito Boy. Until now, I haven’t watched it yet.)
Panganiban did not disclose the role offered to her, though she explained that she did not end up being cast in the movie due to “disagreements.”
“May mga hindi lang nagkasunduan sa mga agreement, so huwag na lang (There were just some things we did not get to [agree on], so I didn’t do it),” she said.
“Nu’ng gumanon ako na huwag na lang, sabi ng Star Cinema, ‘Okay.’ Parang ako, ‘Bakit nag-okay sila kaagad (When I told them I won’t do it, Star Cinema said, “Okay.” I thought, “Why did they say okay immediately)?’” Panganiban added, laughing.
“Four Sisters and a Wedding” is a comedy-drama movie starring Angel Locsin, Bea Alonzo, Toni Gonzaga and Shaina Magdayao.
The movie is centered on four sisters who reunited to dissuade their younger brother (Enchong Dee) from getting married. Its prequel “Four Sisters Before the Wedding” was released in December 2020.
She admitted the decision had been “difficult” for her, though she wants to push through with it because she now wants to go in a “different direction.”
During the interview, Panganiban also discussed her movie with ex-boyfriend Carlo Aquino, “Exes Baggage.” According to her, the film is “remarkable” because it is relatable and is a “real film.” /ra
