Angel Locsin TWBA interview Darna

Angel Locsin will not be doing the new Darna movie anymore. The sad news was revealed by the actress herself during her interview at ‘Tonight With Boy Abunda’ (TWBA) aired this Monday, October 24, 2015. According to the Kapamilya star, she is having some health problems and is even thinking of leaving showbiz. Watch her revelation to Boy Abunda on the video below.

β€œMasakit po, Tito Boy na di ko na magagawa yung Darna. But kami po ng ABS-CBN, nakapag-usap na po kami. Nag-decide na po kami na mas makakabuti po sa lahat kung hindi ko na po gagawin yung Darna. And nagpapasalamat din ako sa ABS-CBN, kasi iniisip nila yung future ko.” Angel said on her very emotional interview with Boy Abunda.

(It hurts, Tito Boay that I will not be able to do Darna anymore. But ABS-CBN and I have already talked. We decided that it will be better for all of us if I will not do Darna. And I’m thankful to ABS-CBN for thinking about my future.)

According to Locsin, who played Darna for the TV adaption of the Filipino superhero at GMA-7 back in 2005, she always do her best for every role given to her, and prefers doing the stunts herself. Apparently, the development of a disc bulge in her spine was triggered by the rigid training she has been doing for two years for the new Darna movie.

Angel Locsin also admitted to Boy Abunda that she is considering quitting showbiz. However, the 30-year old actress said the ABS-CBN told her Darna is not the only role that fits her. She added that the network has still plans for her in the future. The former Kapuso star noted that she only needs therapy and rest, to be able to recover from her spine injury.

Back in June 2014, Star Cinema announced that Angel Locsin will play Darna in the movie. Meanwhile,many Kapamilya fans believe that Nadine Lustre is fit be the new Darna. The 19-year old actress was paired with James Reid in the 2014 movie,’Diary ng Panget.’ Today, the JaDine love team is doing great in the ‘On the Wings of Love’ series being aired at ABS-CBN.

Nevertheless, we at TN wish that Angel Locsin can recover soon. And despite the controversy that surfaced when she moved from GMA to ABS-CBN and about her lovelife, we believe that she is a great actress and deserves to stay in the entertainment industry. Get well soon, Angel! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
