Angel Locsin got reunited with her Iking in Darna, Francis Magundayao!
The short, accidental reunion happened on March 22, 2022 during the PasigLaban campaign rally of presidential aspirant Vice President Leni Robredo and her running mate, Senator Kiko Pangilinan.
Angel and Francis worked together in GMA-7's 2005 TV adaptation of Darna, where Angel played the role of the superhero Darna and her mortal alter-ego, Narda.
Francis played Iking, Narda's younger brother who would later become her sidekick as Darna.

Francis even shouted “Darna!” as he pointed to Angel who was at his back, interacting with other people.

Pointing at himself, Francis told him, “Hello po. Iking.”
Angel and Francis then held hands as his girlfriend took their video. Francis also introduced his girlfriend to Angel and they shook hands.
Francis then pointed again at Angel and shouted like a fanboy, “Darna!”
The video then showed Angel holding her placard, “Ma’am Leni, sa’yo na ang bato,” referring to the magical stone that the mortal Narda swallows whenever she transforms into the superheroine Darna.
Angel told Francis in the comments section of his post, “Nice to see you my iking! [pink heart emoji]”
Francis replied, “ate [crying emoji] salamat sa lahat ng pinaglalaban mo [heart emoji]”
