Angel Locsin says she is now under medication to treat the injury she has acquired in training to play Darna.


Matapos ianunsiyo ng ABS-CBN at ni Angel Locsin kahapon, October 26, na hindi na siya ang gaganap na Darna sa pelikulang nakatakdang ipalabas sa susunod na taon, kinumpirma ng aktres na may napili nang magmamana ng bato para maging susunod na Pinay superhero.

Ito ay kung pagbabasehan ang Instagram post ni Angel ngayong Martes, October 27.

Ayon sa Instagram caption ni Angel: “And I hope and pray that you will give the same amount of love and support to the new Darna.

“Rest assured that ABS CBN has already chosen the perfect person to fill in Darna's boots. :)

“Again, thank you.”

Hindi tinukoy ni Angel kung sino ang gaganap sa role ng Pinay superhero.

Sa guest appearance niya sa Tonight With Boy Abunda nitong Lunes, ipinaliwanag ni Angel na ang pagkakaroon niya ng disc bulge sa kanyang spine ang dahilan kung bakit hindi na siya matutuloy maging Darna.

Nakuha umano ni Angel ang nasabing karamdaman dahil sa intensive training niya bilang paghahanda sana sa role sa nakalipas na dalawang taon.

Sabi pa ni Angel sa Instagram post niya, “It was a painful and hard decision to make, but we had to prioritize my health and welfare.

“Because of that, despite the two year preparations and rigorous training, I regret to inform everyone that I can no longer play Darna.

“Production has to start filming already, and my body is not in the right condition to do anything too physically strenuous.

“It is only fair for production as I don't want to be the cause of delay or problems because of my recurring back injury.

“Rest assured that I am still undergoing treatment so I can come back stronger and, hopefully, be your superhero again.

“Thank you ABS-CBN for looking after what's best for me and my health, especially to Tita Malou Santos.

“Thank you Tito Boy Abunda, Roxy Liquigan, & the rest of the Tonight with Boy Abunda team for giving me the chance to explain my situation in your show.

“To all Darna fans, I want to thank you for all the love and support you've given me.

“I will forever treasure that.”

Sa kanyang Twitter account, sinabi ni Luis na mas mahalaga na gawing prayoridad ang kalusugan ng kanyang girlfriend.

Health first! :) i'm sure she has another big project coming up soon! :) https://t.co/HIUwq6ztmX
