Albeit the first announcement from Angel Locsin herself about not being able to portray DARNA due to health reasons during an interview with Boy Abunda back in 2015, Angel’s fans were still hoping and pushing on social media that she would still do it. And apparently, Angel tried to train for it as well.
However, a final decision has been made today. Angel Locsin will no longer play DARNA in the upcoming Star Cinema film.
I think ABS-CBN has given Angel the respect she deserves in continuing to pursue this movie but it’s really time to get real and move on now. I’m highly confident the network has a few deserving actresses to chose from. Give someone else the opportunity to play DARNA.
