Sarah Lahbati rumored to play Valentina in new Darna movie
Yay or nay?
(SPOT.ph) It's been over a month since Angel Locsin has hung up her star-spangled suit, but another name has floated as a contender for the new Darna movie: Sarah Lahbati—as Darna's eternal archenemy, Valentina.
According to a report from ABS-CBN, Lahbati is one of the actresses "being considered" for the role, but she has yet to "receive confirmation" from her bosses. "I would love to play Valentina. Sana. If it’s for me, it’s for me," she was quoted saying.
A winner of GMA 7's reality talent search StarStruck, Lahbati nabbed lead roles in the network before making a controversial switch to ABS-CBN in 2013. Since her transfer, she's become a regular on ASAP and was seen in the short-lived series, My Super D. Her last film was a supporting role in the Star Cinema movie, The Achy Breaky Hearts.
She's also slated to work on a new movie called Ang Pagsanib Kay Leah Dela Cruz with filmmakers Katski Flores and Erik Matti (who, interestingly enough, is directing the Darna movie).
