It’s official: Angel Locsin hindi na magiging Darna


BAD news para sa mga fans ni Angel Locsin.

Pormal nang inanunsyo ng ABS-CBN at Star Cinema na hindi na si Angel ang gaganap bilang Darna sa bagong movie version nito.

Mismong ang Kapamilya actress na ang nagdesisyon na huwag nang gawin ang proyekto.

Narito ang official statement na ipinadala ni Kane Errol Choa, Head ng Corporate Communications ng Kapamilya Network:

“ABS-CBN at Star Cinema and Locsin have mutually arrived at a final decision that she will no longer pursue the ‘Darna’ movie due to her medical condition.

“We gave Angel our full support during and after her treatment in hopes that she would portray the iconic Filipino heroine. Because of Angel’s passion and dedication, she resumed training for the movie after undergoing surgery and therapy for the disc bulge in her spine.

“Unfortunately, Angel experienced back pain twice during training, prompting her doctor to advise her not to participate in strenuous activities to avoid permanent damage on her spine.

“We would have loved to see Angel fly again as Darna and take our hats off to her for the gargantuan efforts she has put in for the project.

“We wish her well as she will begin working on other projects, like a special role in La Luna Sangre with John Lloyd Cruz, a movie with James Reid, a movie with Coco Martin, and a teleserye.”
