One of the female celebrities eyed to become the next “Darna” after Liza’s withdrawal is 2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach. Many says she will be very fit on the said role.
On the other hand, Pia Wurtzbach isn’t sugarcoating her willingness to grab the highly coveted role of “Darna”.
One of the netizens’ frontrunners is Pia Wurtzbach.
The 2015 Miss Universe admitted she feels flattered just being considered by netizens. Speaking with MJ Felipe, Wurtzbach said, “I’m very flattered they think I could play the role of Darna. That’s an iconic role and a really sought after role.”
She called it, “The role of a lifetime.”
She also said,
“Kung papalarin na ibibigay sa akin ‘yung role na Darna, tatanggapin ko. I will work hard, I will train, I will attend workshops. Ibibigay ko lahat ng lakas ko.”
Wurtzbach continued that she is willing to work hard to play the iconic Filipino heroine.
Yet even though she’s willing, she still left the decision to the ABS-CBN management to see who is the “perfect fit to play the role.”
When she was asked if she is willing to audition for the role, she answered,
“Oh Yeah, of course! If I find out that they’re open to have me audition, then I’m going to try. Why not?”
But despite of all the things happening around her and netizens rooting her to be the next Darna, Wurtzbach also revealed that she reached out to Soberano after hearing she backed out from the ‘Darna’ role.
According to her she felt sad for Liza especially that they are also friends. She also tell a story that when Liza was in Australia for ASAP they even talk about Liza’s preparation and everything.
Meanwhile, we only hope that the management can finally put period in every fans suggestions on who will be the rightful “Darna”.
