Locsin rose to prominence after being casted as one of the lead stars in the fantasy-themed television series Mulawin in 2004. Soon after she headlined as the titular superheroine Darna in the TV adaptation of the popular Mars Ravelo comics hit.

Life and career

Locsín grew up in Bulacan and was the second child in a brood of three. Her parents were separated when she was fourteen and she has since lived with her father. Locsin's career in show business began after she was spotted by a talent scout when she cut class with a friend while shopping at SM Mall. She auditioned for several commercials and soon after she landed a contract with GMA Network.

Locsín first appeared in Click, a teen-oriented program on the GMA Network, as the tomboyish Charley (short for Charlotte) where she was paired with (Railey Valeroso).However, she only became widely known when she first appeared on the cover of FHM Philippines. The same magazine frequently lists her as one the "100 Sexiest Women in the World", as well as sexiest Filipina, ranking No. 2 behind Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie. She has also been known the current sex symbol of the Philippines.

After appearing in Click, Locsin gained further exposure as she was cast in television shows like Ang Iibigin Ay Ikaw Pa Rin, All Together Now and Love to Love

In 2004, Locsin received what is considered her biggest break yet. She starred as one of the lead stars in the telefantasya Mulawin. After her role as the half-human, half-avian Alwina where got to be paired with Aguiluz (Richard Gutierrez),she auditioned for the title role of the classic Filipina superhero in Darna television series. She won the part hands down, and was chosen to don the iconic red suit and crest among numerous actresses who tried out. Locsin reunited with former love team Dennis Trillo as they top-bill in GMA's newest fantasy-themed series, Majika.

Aside from television, Locsín also starred in films. Among her big screen credits are Kuya, Mano Po 2, Singles, Sigaw and in 2005 the box-office hit Let The Love Begin, alongside perennial partner Richard Gutierrez. Her team-up with Gutierrez is considered by some as one of the best pairings in the country. She reprised her role as Alwina in the movie adaptation of Mulawin.

Locsin also had her fair share of controversy after appearing in one of the Axe TV ads, many feminist groups, as well as former Senator Nikki Coseteng, complained about the offensive gestures in the advertisement. In the television commercial, Angel is teasing a man by showing off money and her body but the man approaches Angel and takes only her money. Because of the complaints, Unilever Philippines, the maker of Axe, slowly pulled out the commercial.

Locsin, on 21 April 2006, spent a pre-21st birthday get-together with close friends and relatives in Aurora Ville Resort. After a short program hosted by Joel Almagro, Locsin thanked the organizers for a simple but sincere effort to make her day complete. This, after spending the whole day with kids with various medical conditions and giving free medical aid.

Locsin starred in another fantasy-themed TV series, Majika, together with Dennis Trillo, which was aired from March to September 2006. She played the role of Sabina, a seemingly ordinary girl who lived in the world of mortals but is unknowingly the one destined to become the most powerful female magician. Afterwards, she was cast in Asian Treasures, opposite Robin Padilla. It was the first Philippine TV series that was shot in multiple countries such as Mongolia, Thailand and China.
