An emotional Liza Soberano confirmed on TV Patrol that she has withdrawn from the highly-anticipated Darna movie. Talking to ABS-CBN reporter MJ Felipe, Liza announced that she has decided to withdraw from the project because of her finger injury from Bagani last year.
Liza stated that it was her decision to exit the project since she felt that her injury would hinder her from perfectly doing her stunts and even training. “I’ve been undergoing therapy. I had surgery twice na po. We’ve been trying to fix it, but lately, these past few weeks, we’ve decided na maybe it’s best if I don’t push through with it, because baka maging hindrance lang po siya for me to be able to do the stunts properly. It’s a hindrance for me being able to be confident in doing the scenes na alam kong may hesitations ako when doing it, because I have to take care of the finger,”
The actress shared that she doesn’t feel whole for Darna anymore. “I really wanted to do ‘Darna.’ I invested so much time, so much effort. Physically, I felt like I was ready before the incident. I don’t want the project to suffer just because I don’t feel like I could give Darna the justice she deserves. Emotionally, that’s why I decided to withdraw from the project. I felt like hindi ako buo anymore to do ‘Darna.'”
When asked for her message to her fans, Liza burst into tears. “I just want to say sorry to them that I let them down […] Sorry, I can’t do it, sorry”
Liza was announced as the new Darna on May 2017.
