It is uncertain whether this comment of hers meant that Julia was truly her top pick to be her successor as the iconic Filipino superheroine, but Julia definitely appreciated the kind words. “Love you ate (big sis),” she replied to the former Darna.

Angel portrayed the superheroine in a television series back in 2005 and was supposed to reprise her role in a big-screen project announced in 2014 until she had to withdraw due to a back injury.

It is now Jane De Leon who will take on the role in the upcoming film adaptation to be directed by Jerrold Tarog.
