She said during an interview in Tonight with Boy Abunda, recalling how excited she was the first time she was offered to do Darna herself in the movie.

“Super excited ako, kasi minsan nang naibigay sa akin itong role na ito. At alam ko kung gaano kalaki ang naitulong nito sa career ko. At gusto ko naman sanang gawin ito this time dito sa Kapamilya network.”

Two years after the movie success in 2013, Locsin also played the role of “Darna” in a prime time television series aired in GMA 7.

ABS-CBN and Star Cinema said in a press statement:

“It is with deep regret that we announce that ABS-CBN, Star Cinema, and Angel Locsin have mutually agreed that Angel will no longer do the ‘Darna’ movie due to health reasons. Because of her passion, dedication, and commitment to the project, she underwent various rigorous training regimens for two years. Unfortunately, this led her to developing a disc bulge in her spine. This then limits her from doing strenuous activities such as stunts, liftings, and the usage of harness, all of which will be required of her for the action scenes in the film. Aside from that, she will need to undergo rehabilitation and treatment.”

ABS-CBN and Star Cinema decided to have locsin not do the movie anymore because of health reasons. The parties added in the press statement:

“Fans need not worry. They can still look forward to seeing her in a movie that she is currently shooting with Vilma Santos. Angel’s physical condition does not prevent her from finishing the said project.”

Angel Locsin clarified, however, she is not yet leaving the show business.
