Ever since it was confirmed that Liza Soberano is the new Darna, fans have been wondering whether or not the 19-year-old actress will be donning the Pinay superhero’s iconic two-piece costume.
Over the six decades that Darna had been adapted for film and television, only three actresses—Lorna Tolentino, Sharon Cuneta, and Regine Velasquez—had worn a one-piece Darna costume.
Will Liza be following suit?
The Star Magic talent told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and the press at the June 15 trade launch of Megapro Plus at Luxent Hotel that she would be ready to don the famous red bikini with gold stars if that would be the final costume choice.
She pointed out, “Well, of course, whatever is approved by the management, ‘yon po ang susuotin ko.”
Liza did not reject the idea of baring skin for her role as the Pinay heroine, “Okay lang basta prepared lang po ako. Hindi yung bibiglain, ‘O, suotin mo ito.’
“If I were to choose, anything naman as long as I am prepared for it.”
Would this signify Liza’s transition into more matured roles?
“Yes, I am maturing. I’m turning 20 next year, so I think it’s about time na rin.”
