Angel Locsin Won't Fly As Darna

Angel Locsin Won’t Fly As Darna

| On 21, Mar 2017

Bad news for the fans of Angel Locsin… She won’t be playing “Darna.”

The recent development revealed that ABS-CBN, Star Magic, and Angel Locsin decided to forego the role. Why? It’s because her body is not permitting her.

In October 2015, Angel announced that she won’t be flying as “Darna” in the movies because of her disc bulge in her spine. However, hopes have risen after her operation and therapy in Singapore went well. The follow-up therapies also went smooth and she continued with her physical activities.

Unfortunately, Chappy Callanta, Angel’s fitness coach noticed something asymmetrical on the posture of the actress. It led to another medical examination that prompted her doctors not to release certification for her to continue heavy activities.

This incident caused her to decide not to play “Darna” since the role will be requiring rigorous activities.

“ABS-CBN, Star Cinema, and Angel Locsin mutually arrived at a final decision that she will no longer pursue the ‘Darna’ movie due to her medical condition,” a part of the joint statement to clear the air.

Malou Santos the COO of Star Creatives noted the decision came in since the most priority will be Angel’s health.

“Ito na ang pinaka-final verdict that she cannot play Darna. Kasi mas importante ang buhay niya kesa sa pelikula… Kumbaga napatunayan ko yung dedication ni Angel Locsin sa craft niya kasi despite the fact na nagkaroon siya ng sakit sa likod, kung kaya niyang ilihim sa amin, ililihim niya,” said Santos.

Carlo Katigbak, the President of ABS-CBN, noted that this is a disappointing news. However, just what like Santos said, Angel’s being is the number one priority.

What will happen to Angel’s career? Well, she won’t stop entertaining people. In fact, she will have a reunion movie with John Lloyd Cruz as well as movies with Coco Martin and James Reid.


Matagal ng tinatanong ng Pinoy fans si Angel Locsin pa rin nga ba ang gaganap sa Pinay superhero na “Darna?” Ngayon may official confirmation na kung si Angel pa ba ang sisigaw ng Darna.
