Yay or Nay: Anne Curtis Rumored to Be the New Valentina
Is Sarah Lahbati out?
(SPOT.ph) Less than a week after Liza Soberano was announced as the new Darna, fans are now abuzz about who will be portraying her character's arch-nemesis, Valentina.
Rumors immediately circulated about Anne Curtis taking on the role. When asked by ABS-CBN about whether she was playing Valentina, she answered, "As far as I know, hindi." She added, however, that she would be open to accepting the role, should it be offered to her.
Prior to Anne, someone else was rumored to be taking on the infamous role: Sarah Lahbati, who has yet to issue a response. Curiously enough, both girls are slated to star in films backed by Darna director, Erik Matti: Anne is doing an intense action film called Buy Bust, while Sarah is part of Reality Entertainment's new horror, Ang Pagsasanib Kay Leah Dela Cruz.
Actresses who previously portrayed Valentina in various incarnations include Celia Rodriguez (1973), Pilar Pilapil (1991), Alessandra de Rossi (2005), Nadine Samonte (2005), and Iwa Moto (2009).
