Singer-actress Nadine Lustre did not admit nor deny that she wants to be the next Darna after Liza Soberano backed out from taking the role.
Lustre has been among the most suggested artists to take on the lead role of the famous Pinay superhero film adaptation. However, she believes that it will be given to someone who deserves it.
“I mean it doesn’t have to be me, just has to be someone that can give justice to the role,” Lustre said as she thanked her supporters for believing that she is also fit for the role.
In a report, the 25-year-old actress was asked if it means she doesn’t want to take the role, and she responded with “it depends.”
“I really don’t like to say I wanna do it or not because mapupunta talaga ‘yan sa kung sinong may deserve,” Lustre stressed.
In a recent interview, Angel Locsin, who also portrayed Darna more than a decade ago, also aired almost the same opinion as Lustre.
“Ang bato talaga ni Darna, namimili ng tao. Hindi basta basta lang,” Locsin said.
Lustre also sympathized with Soberano, who had to withdraw from the role due to an injury.
“It would have been nice to see her [as Darna] kasi she was working on it na. Sayang. It just means that it’s really not for her and there’s something else bigger that’s meant for her,” Lustre said.
