What Would Marian Rivera Advice Liza Soberano About Being The New DARNA?

Marian Rivera was already asked before about what she thought of Liza Soberano as the new DARNA since she was the last actress who played the Pinay Hero on TV. Marian was quick to say that Liza is perfect.

In a more formal interview with Inquirer, Marian was asked again what advice she would give Liza if the latter asks her for any. While the GMA Network’s Primetime Queen humbly states that she’s in no position to give career advice she says it’s hard to play DARNA if you emulate an actress as your peg. The best way is to evolve into the character and make it your own. Marian also mentioned the physical aspects of being DARNA because let’s face it viewers are very critical of that side of being a Pinay superhero which is why Liza is currently undergoing rigorous training with Bok Santos and it looks like it’s definitely paying off.

Her high-profile roles include Dyesebel, MariMar and Amaya—and she was the last actress to portray the highly coveted role of Darna on TV. If Liza Soberano asked her for advice, what would she tell the pretty teener?

Marian answered, “‘MariMar’ will always have a special place in my heart, because that was my big break. As for Liza, I don’t think I’m in any position to dispense career advice. But, it’s hard to play Darna if you have a peg or choose an actress to emulate. It’s important for her to evolve in the character and make it her own. It’s a difficult task. I had to be physically fit. I made sure my stomach was flat—hindi ko talaga hinayaang may taba ako sa t’yan.” (source)

Sounds like a good advice to me.
