Ever since Liza Soberano announced her withdrawal from the Darna movie remake, fans have been casting their faves for the iconic superhero role. Some artists have already said that the role is not for them, but one of the front runners for Darna, 22-year-old Julia Barretto, is all for it!
During an interview for her newest film Between Maybes, where she stars opposite Gerald Anderson, Julia declared that she's willing to audition for the role wearing Darna's iconic two-piece costume. "I'd do it... If there were auditions, I'd go to that audition in a panty and bra and just do the thing," Julia said, mimicking Darna's iconic pose.
Her co-star, Gerald, couldn't help exclaiming "Oh, sh—" in surprise.
"Thank you so much for even thinking about me. I mean that's a huge thing, that's a huge deal. Thank you," Julia added as a message to her fans.
Don't you just love how gutsy Julia is? She is known for her somewhat *daring* outfits (she even defended her sexy fashion choices and talked about the usefulness of nipple tape during an interview in January) and we're sure that, for her, the Darna costume would be easy to pull off!
Julia's also starring in a zombie movie with Joshua Garcia called Block Z soon. Her action scenes for the film will surely come in handy for her possible Darna audition! Go, Jules!
