Home / Movies / LOOK: Could she be the next Darna?


It was a painful and hard decision to make, but we had to prioritize my health and welfare. Because of that, despite the two year preparations and rigorous training, I regret to inform everyone that I can no longer play Darna 🙁 Production has to start filming already, and my body is not in the right condition to do anything too physically strenuous. It is only fair for production as I don't want to be the cause of delay or problems because of my recurring back injury. Rest assured that I am still undergoing treatment so I can come back stronger and hopefully, be your superhero again 🙂 Thank you ABS CBN for looking after what's best for me and my health, especially to Tita Malou Santos. Thank you Tito Boy Abunda, Roxy Liquigan, & the rest of the Tonight with Boy Abunda team for giving me the chance to explain my situation in your show. To all Darna fans, I want to thank you for all the love and support you've given me. I will forever treasure that. And I hope and pray that you will give the same amount of love and support to the new Darna. Rest assured that ABS CBN has already chosen the perfect person to fill in Darna's boots. 🙂 Again, thank you? (photo taken April 2012)
