After Liza Soberano let go of the much coveted ‘Darna’ role, the “bato” is now up for grabs. Netizens have been throwing out names of their favorite stars.

One of those seen to be capable of portraying the feisty Filipina heroine, is our very own Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.

And why not?

The Fil-Aussie beauty queen is also a proud martial artist with a black belt in Choi Kwang-Do keeping her robe tight. Darna’s kicks might be an easy breezy for her.

When asked if she’s willing to portray the role of ‘Darna’, Catriona first focused on the question about acting. With no prior experience, she said she might just give it a try.

Catriona said, “Am I open for acting po? Yes, I’m open to every opportunity that may come my way. Acting is a field that I have not yet had any experience in but I’m a very eager learner.”

To reiterate her answer on the role, she continued, “And if the opportunity came to audition for a certain role, I would very much be open to it.”

Catriona also shared that she’s been quite busy in New York as she does various charity works.

On Instagram, she shared that she has just been on a “social media detox” to help her “reconnect and put into perspective” the role social media has in her life.

Meanwhile, another beauty queen who is also a fan favorite is Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach. Without much fuss, Pia also expressed her interest to audition for the role.

She called ‘Darna’, “the role of a lifetime.”
