Luis Manzano also reveals Angel Locsin might undergo surgery for her spine.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Angel Locsin’s boyfriend Luis Manzano expressed that he’s touched by the kind words given by the people for the actress even after it was announced that she will no longer portray the role of the Filipina heroine “Darna” due to a disc bulge on her spine.
"Nakita ko nga may mga Instagram pa na Darna will wait for Angel Locsin. Nakaka-touch kasi siyempre ibig sabihin there's no one better for that role. Kahit 'yung regular na tao who follows showbiz talagang sinasabi nila na iba 'yung naging tatak ni Angel as Darna. So thank you. I guess on behalf of Angel maraming salamat doon sa nagsasabing kung kayang antayin, antayin sana,” he said.
On the other hand, Luis shared that Angel might consider surgery for her spine.
“I think mayroon siyang two options na kino-consider. May isa na medyo mas matimbang, so hopefully soon magawa na niya, basta makapagpa-treatment kung sakaling magawa niya 'yung nakaplanong whether 'yung surgery, basta magawa 'yon at maayos 'yung therapy after, she can be 100% again,” he said.
"With technology now, sa science ngayon, parang ang bilis (maka-recover). 'Yung last case na nakita after one or two weeks parang medyo okay na. Pero of course she still have to undergo therapy. Hindi pwedeng after noon eh lahat ay gagawin mo. Siyempre kailangan may kaunting ingat pa din before you're 100%," he added.
In the end, he also hopes that Angel could still be Darna.
"Sana. Siguro not just dahil sa clamor ng tao but kahit ang management ay nakikita na 'Oo nga ano baka naman kaya pa ngang hintayin si Angel.' So sana."
