HIGHLIGHT: Fresh from her contract-signing with ABS-CBN, former TV-5 actress and new Kapamilya Ritz Azul is set to showcase her acting chops in the primetime Coco Martin-starrer “Ang Probinsyano.”
On Wednesday, ABS-CBN released a teaser for the top-rating series showing Azul wielding a handgun and showing-off her dramatic skills.
Azul is thrilled to be working with Martin for her first stint in the Kapamilya Network.
“Parang nasa langit ako noon. Nung pagkasabing after ng contract signing mo, may taping ka na ng ‘Ang Probinsyano,’ ako parang wait lang ‘di ba nandoon si Coco Martin,” she said in an interview after her contract singing on April 12.
(“I was in cloud 9. When they said that after my contract-signing, I am already scheduled to shoot for ‘Ang Probinsyano,’ I was like ‘wait a minute, isn’t Coco martin part of that show?’’)
Azul was a finalist in the 2010 talent search contest on TV-5 called Star Factor, where she landed 4 place. Before signing a 2-year contract with ABS-CBN, she has done various shows in TV-5, including Nagbabagang Bulaklak, Glamorosa, Misibis Bay and For Love or Money. Her contract with TV-5 expired on January 2016.
Aside from Coco Martin, Ang Probinsyano also stars Maja Salvador, Susan Roces, Ajro Atayde, Bela Padilla and Albert Martinez. The series airs weekdays after TV Patrol.
