Liza Soberano wants to do her own stunts as the new Darna
(SPOT.ph) In case you haven't already heard, Liza Soberano has officially announced that she's the new Darna! The announcement comes days after a column from Philippine Star's Ricky Lo hinted at the development.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, the 19-year-old actress said that she wants to do her own stunts for the role. She also told reporter MJ Felipe about the training she's currently undergoing, such as functional training to increase her strength. "Eventually, I'll have stunt training, dance workshop para sa timing and gracefulness kapag gumalaw. And then I think I'll have acting workshops again, as well as dialogue training."
Soberano said she was "excited" to play the role, adding, "I feel really honored to be able to don the iconic costume and to be able to embody what she represents."
In a Facebook post by Soberano's manager, Ogie Diaz, he shared that Soberano received copies of Darna komiks from Angel Locsin (who was initially supposed to topbill the film by Erik Matti).
