Sun.Star Pampanga - - HEALTH! - T has been con­firmed!Liza Sober­ano will no longer play "Darna." Liza’s finger bone frac­ture, which she got on the set of Ba­gani, hin­ders her from push­ing through with the movie. Liza shed some light about her de­ci­sion of back­ing out of the role.

Ibuo any­more


Liza re­vealed that part of her got scared to do the role be­cause of her finger in­jury.

“I was scared na I wouldn’t look as good do­ing my stunts be­cause of the way my finger looks, and I’m not sure na ba­ba­lik siya sa dati, na I would be able to make a fist. Of course, I wanted to give my man­age­ment, my bosses, my best Darna that they could pos­si­bly have. But I kind of felt in­se­cure about it na rin.”

Liza is thank­ful to Star Cin­ema for un­der­stand­ing her de­ci­sion to back out.

“They were also very hope­ful that I would be able to do the project, but they un­der­stood my sit­u­a­tion, and I’m glad that they are very sup­port­ive.

They’re in­spir­ing me, be­cause they told me that I’m go­ing to have other projects na­man after. Akala ko if I backed out of Darna, I wouldn’t have a

to do job any­more. They told me na just be­cause I’m not do­ing Darna any­more, doesn’t mean I’m any less of an artist to them.”

In May 2017, ABS-CBN and Star Cin­ema an­nounced that Liza will be tak­ing on the role of Darna. This was be­cause An­gel Loc­sin, the first choice for the movie, was un­able to do the role due to her slipped disc.

Liza had al­ready shot her scenes as Narda with di­rec­tor Erik Matti. How­ever, in Oc­to­ber 2018, Matti backed out of his direc­to­rial du­ties. Jer­rold Tarog was cho­sen as his re­place­ment.

“I’ve been un­der­go­ing much ef­fort. Phys­i­cally, I ther­apy. I had surgery twice felt like I was ready be­fore na po. We’ve been try­ing the in­ci­dent.” to fix it, but lately, these Liza found it best to past few weeks, we’ve de­cided with­draw from the project. na maybe it’s best if She said: “I don’t want I don’t push through with the project to suf­fer just it, be­cause baka mag­ing be­cause I don’t feel like I hin­drance lang po siya for could give Darna the jus­tice me to be able to do the she de­serves. Emo­tion­ally, stunts prop­erly. I re­ally that’s why I de­cided wanted to do Darna. I in­vested to with­draw from the so much time, so project. I felt like hindi ako JM de Guz­man on Ria Atayde: "Kung ano man ang mang­yari or what­ever, I would like to keep her for­ever." Is JM, 30 courting Ria Atayde,27?

“Hindi… kasi naki­lala ko si Ria sa isang small cir­cle din namin. Hindi ko alam… ang bait-bait niya. Na­pak­a­gen­uine. Parang naa-at­tach lang ako sa mga taong ga­nun, sa mga pos­i­tive na tao. Hindi siya show­biz.”

With re­gards to their re­la­tion­ship: “We’re re­ally good friends. Hindi pa ga­nun kata­gal ang friend­ship namin, pero yung investment namin sa friend­ship namin, we’re re­ally in­vest­ing.”

Does he has any plans of pur­su­ing Ria? “I would like to keep her…”

As of now JM would like to fo­cus on his ca­reer. “Ayokong ka­palan ang mukha ko masyado na pagsabaysabayin na na­man ang la­hat. Huwag muna.”

Sea­soned ac­tress Sylvia Sanchez ad­mit­ted that she was hurt by nasty words against her fam­ily. This is in con­nec­tion with the re­la­tion­ship of her son Arjo Atayde with the phe­nom­e­nal star Maine Men­doza

The "Je­sus" lead star re­ferred to the chal­leng­ing sit­u­a­tion as among the reasons why she is cer­tain that Arjo is in love with Maine. De­spite fans who have vo­cally crit­i­cized Arjo, he fought, and con­tin­ues to fight, for his re­la­tion­ship with Maine, ac­cord­ing to Sanchez. Arjo and Maine have ad­mit­ted, in sep­a­rate in­ter­views, that they are “ex­clu­sively dat­ing.”

Asked for her mes­sage to Maine, Sylvia brought up the ac­tress-host’s stature in show­biz, and how she dared to defy ex­pec­ta­tions and stuck with Arjo in the face of crit­i­cisms. For hav­ing pub­licly ac­knowl­edged Arjo as some­one spe­cial, Sylvia ex­pressed grat­i­tude to Maine, whom she has yet to meet in per­son.
