Lorna Tolentino revealed who she prefers to play Darna
Veteran actress Lorna Tolentino, who played Darna in 1977, revealed who she wants to play the iconic role in the upcoming movie.
Yes, the search is still ongoing for the next Pinay superhero after Liza Soberano announced that she can no longer play the role.
She had to stop shooting because of her finger injury. Prior to her, Angel Locsin was supposed to play the role. However, she also declined because of health reasons.
ABS-CBN and Star Cinema have been conducting auditions but the search is not yet over.
“There are so many auditioning for that. Darna is Darna. Everyone wants to be a Darna,” Lorna shared, based on the report from Manila Bulletin.
When asked who she wants to play the popular character in the movie, the veteran actress said that she wants Nadine Lustre.
“I have seen the video where she shouted ‘Darna.’ Nice,” Lorna Tolentino said. The video which she was talking about went viral.
Prominent filmmaker Erik Matti, who was supposed to be the first director of the Darna movie, also chose Nadine to play the role.
In addition, several fans have expressed on social media that they want the girlfriend of James Reid to be the next Darna. Indeed, the actress is one of the most popular choices for the iconic role.
Meanwhile, Lorna shared her experience when she was doing the Darna during her time.
“I was the first Darna who wore a bathing suit, not bikini. It was traumatic for me because I accidentally hit a man hard on his head,” the veteran actress shared.
She also revealed how they shot the flying scenes, based on the report.
“We didn’t have any harness before. So, we were using a blue table to lay on it and your arms and legs were dangling. It’s hard,” Lorna Tolentino said.
