It’s Official: Angel Locsin Will No Longer Play Darna As Her Spine Was Just Damaged… OMG!


The unexpected development on the health condition of talented actress, Angel Locsin was eventually divulged by Angel herself, and the real reason why she can no longer play again the role as “Darna.”

Unfortunately, Angel can no longer fly like a bird, nor sting like a bee and fight like an invincible fighter as per her previous role as “Darna” due to health concerns.

In an episode of “Tonight with Boy Abunda” which was shown on Monday, Angel finally revealed to Boy Abunda why she can’t play Darna anymore. She even told Boy how excited and thrilled she was when she was first offered to play the starring role as “Darna”
Angel said: “Super excited ako, kasi minsan nang naibigay sa akin itong role na ito. At alam ko kung gaano kalaki ang naitulong nito sa career ko. At gusto ko naman sanang gawin ito this time dito sa Kapamilya network.”

Locsin was initially offered to play the role of “Darna” in 2005 which was aired at Channel 7, Kapuso network in a primetime television series.

When Angel received an offer from ABS-CBN and Star Cinema to star in the new “Darna” movie, she wasted no time and promptly subjected herself to a rigid training for two years in Muay Thai which is a form of martial arts, while doing her regular exercise at the same time.

Nevertheless, due to an unpredicted incident, ABS-CBN and Star Cinema surprisingly announced that Angel Locsin will no longer play the role as “Darna” the movie.

In a press statement, the management of ABS-CBN said: “It is with deep regret that we announce that ABS-CBN, Star Cinema, and Angel Locsin have mutually agreed that Angel will no longer do the ‘Darna’ movie due to health reasons. Because of her passion, dedication, and commitment to the project, she underwent various rigorous training regimens for two years. Unfortunately, this led her to developing a disc bulge in her spine. This then limits her from doing strenuous activities such as stunts, liftings, and the usage of harness, all of which will be required of her for the action scenes in the film. Aside from that, she will need to undergo rehabilitation and treatment.”

Angel’s health and safety is a priority to both parties, hence the reason why they are giving Angel ample time to recover from her present condition. However, they also made it clear that Angel will resume her ongoing movie project as soon as she’s feeling better to satisfy her fans.

In an added statement: “Fans need not worry. They can still look forward to seeing her in a movie that she is currently shooting with Vilma Santos. Angel’s physical condition does not prevent her from finishing the said project.”

Related to this, the development of a disc bulge in Angel’s spine was attributed to her intensive training, and because of this condition, she can no longer indulge herself to active stunts.

Angel said: “Kapag may trabaho, ibinibigay ko talaga ‘yong best ko. Ganoon ko kamahal ‘yong craft and ‘yong role, inaalagaan ko.”

Luckily, her latest MRI result confirmed her spine’s condition has not deteriorated. Angel is currently undergoing physical therapy and also considering to seek medications overseas.

She is also very happy that her father is giving his all-out support to her, as well as her boyfriend, Luis Manzano.
Locsin said: “Lagi siyang nandyan. Matalino si Luis eh. Alam niya kung paano niya ako mapapakalma. Alam niya kasing masakit sa akin ‘to, hinahayaan niya akong i-express kung ano ‘yong nasa loob ko, pero pinaparamdam niya na nandyan lang siya kahit anong mangyari.”

Meanwhile, Angel made it clear that she and Luis have no definite plans of getting married yet. However, she disclosed that they recurrently discuss about it.
