Angel Locsin still hopes to play the role of Darna
063016-angel_main.jpgAfter undergoing a neuro-spinal surgery in Singapore last February, Angel Locsin admitted she is on the road to recovery from the series of operations due to a disc bulge found in her spine. "Okay naman nandiyan pa naman yung back ko and puwede ko siya i-injure ulit (laughs). Okay naman maganda yung therapy na ginagawa namin, maganda naman yung feedback na sinasabi ng doctor ko so I’m happy na gumagaling galing na tayo,” she shared during the Smart Padala press launch held last June 29 at the Green Sun in Makati city.

Angel said she is already looking forward to going back to the active lifestyle she had before the surgery. "Itong September kailangan ko lang bumalik ng Singapore ulit for assessment na doon. Sasabihin na nila sa akin if I’m allowed to run na, if I’m allowed to wear heels, parang ganun. Parang yung mga routine na ginagawa ko like hiking, running, biking, ganyan so baka puwede ko na siyang magawa,” she shared.

The new Smart Padala endorser was known as one of the most outgoing celebrities who would regularly update her fans about her travels on social media. "Actually sobrang bored ako ngayon. Sa totoo lang sobrang bored ako ngayon kasi I miss my old routine. But thanks to my PT tinutulungan naman niya ako ng konti sa swimming at konting exercise but siguro dahil nasanay ako sa mas intense, na-mi-miss kong gawin. And siguro parang yun yung goal ko kasi na pag nagawa ko na siya ulit ibig sabihin I’m okay na,” she added.

Because of her injury, Angel admitted it was really hard for her to turn down the role of Pinoy superhero Darna earlier this year. But she hopes to still be considered for the role when she returns from Singapore. "Sobrang hirap sagutin (yung tungkol sa Darna project) kung paano because like open naman ako kung gaano ko ka-gusto yung project talaga, kung gaano ko kamahal yung proyekto. But ang hirap kasi. After nung interview ko, triny ko muna siya talaga kalimutan kasi sobrang na-depress talaga ako at that time. Kung sakaling ibibigay man ulit, ang sinabi ko lang naman kailangan kong magpagaling talaga. Ayusin ko muna yung sarili ko para gawin ko ng tama kasi ayoko rin namang matengga sa set. Kung ibibigay sa akin, para sa akin. Kung hindi man baka hindi siguro para sa akin,” she admitted.
