Multi-awarded actress, Angel Locsin, admitted she felt discriminated against when she was just starting out her showbiz career.
During that time, the young actress was still trying to land projects that would help her become known.
She said prior to entering showbiz, she would audition for commercials, and at this time, entering showbiz was the furthest thing from her mind.
When she did enter the world of entertainment, Angel gave herself a deadline of two years, after which she would quit showbiz.

“Dapat two years lang ako sa showbiz. Yun lang kasi ang deadline ko. Mag-iipon lang ako, papaopera ko tatay ko,” Angel said.
She revealed that the only reason she wanted to earn as an actress is that she wanted to save enough for the operation of her father.
Unfortunately, when she did save enough, the doctor told her that the eyes of her father cannot be operated on anymore.
“Medyo na-lost ako. Parang wala akong purpose. Hindi ko alam kung ano gagawin,” Angel revealed.
She continued with her showbiz work, though she would sometimes feel that she is being discriminated against and that her acting prowess is constantly being looked down.
“And then na-challenge ako, kasi parang, di ko alam kung naranasan mo yung, minsan may bullying… O minsan may parang discrimination, o ganyan,” the actress said.
She did not go into more details, however, on what happened that made her say she was being discriminated against or subjected to bullying.
Angel did say that she was challenged to do more so people would see her acting prowess.
“Na-challenge lang ako na parang, ‘Okay, pakita ko na kaya ko.’ Yun lang,” Angel said.
