Julia Barretto revealed she has already “auditioned” for the coveted ‘Darna’ role.
The Between Maybe star shared how committed she was for the Filipina superhero role; yes, she immediately walked into the audition.
In the video, Julia can be seen hurriedly walking towards the audition room. She told her staff, “Darna [auditions] daw. Tara, bilis, baka it’s too late.”
She waves to someone offscreen and says, “Audition lang ako.”
Julia was greeted by surprised laughter from the auditioning panel. She introduced herself and said, “Hello po. Nandito po ako para sa auditions for Darna. Ano po ba ang requirements?”
One of the panelists responded, “Naka-white, tamang-tama. Naka-pony, tamang-tama. Eksaktong-eksakto.”
Julia playfully pretends to ask, “Ano po ang kailangan, maghubad po ba ako?”
Julia’s audition was, of course, just for laughs. She recalled the experience, “Hindi nila ako sineryoso.”
“Sabi ko nga, ‘Maghuhubad na ba ako? Kasi ready na ako.’ Wala, tinawanan lang nila ako. Baka ayaw nila,” she added.
The young actress got serious and finally admitted she knows the criticisms that go with grabbing the coveted role.
Julia had earlier expressed her willingness to audition for ‘Darna’ if the opportunity knocks. She said, “”I will do it If there will be auditions, I will go to that audition in panty and bra and just do the thing.”
Meanwhile, Julia will soon star in a movie alongside Gerald Anderson. Their movie “Between Maybe” is under Black Sheep Productions; the same maker of LizQuen’s blockbuster “Alone/Together.”
Julia played the role of “Hazel”, who she says goes through the same thing she’s going through right now.
Hazel is a struggling actress who tries to find a breather away from the limelight. She finds herself in a remote fishing town in Japan.
