As for her being the Angel Locsin look alike, she feels happy and ashamed at the same time.
“Masaya po na nahihiya,” was the reaction of Soriano who hails from Pasay City when asked about the comparison.
“Star po kasi si Angel Locsin. Idol ko po siya, pinapanood ko ang mga action movies niya. Nakakataba ng puso na makumpara sa kanya.”

Soriano said she has been compared to the Kapamilya actress eversince she was a child, and would be fondly called “Angel”. It may be remembered that Angel Locsin once portrayed the Filipino mythical and iconic superhero “Darna”.
“Noong bata pa po kasi ako tinatawag na po nila akong Angel. Iyon na rin po ang tawag sa kin ng kapwa arnisador,” kuwento ni Soriano
“Sobrang nakaka-proud po, nakaka-overwhelm ng puso na part ako ng Philippine national team na nag-represent sa Pilipinas.”
