Angel Locsin Reveals Reason Why She Will No Longer Portray “Darna”

In an interview with Boy Abunda, actress Angel Locsin opens up to why she will no longer play the iconic role Darna. She explains, “May time po kasi na for ilang days hindi po talaga ako makalakad. May araw po na isang araw gumising nalang ako na hindi na ako makatayo, ni gapang, ni hatak sa sarili, di ko magawa.” [Rough Translation: “There was a time when I couldn’t even walk for days. One day, I just couldn’t stand up after waking up, I couldn’t even crawl out of the bed, I couldn’t pull myself up.”]

It was revealed that the actress is suffering from a bulging disk injury. Since her health is top priority, the network and Angel both decided that the latter can no longer portray Darna’s role.
