The search for the new Darna actress is on, and while everyone has their opinions (which they are perfectly entitled to), former Darna director Erik Matti says that he sees Nadine Lustre playing the iconic role, after Liza Soberano. There have even been multiple fan art versions of Nadz wearing the Darna costume!
What does Nadine have to say about all this?
"It's nice, it's a good opportunity, it's a good project, so who's not open for it?" the actress said in an interview with ABS-CBN on April 27, 2019. "I mean, if it's meant for me, sa akin po ibibigay. But like what I've said before, I know that the project is going to be given to someone who can give justice to the role. It does not have to be me, as long as mabigyan ng justice. I know naman that everyone is going to pick the right one."
Nadine added, "I don't think it's bad to be a third choice. I mean, you know, puwede rin naman na it's not the right time or it's not the right project for them, so I don't think it matters."
Nadine recently won the Best Actress Award for her role in Never Not Love You during the 67th Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences Awards (FAMAS). She has also won the 2019 Young Critics Circle Film Desk (YCC-FD) Best Performance award for the same film.
