Talent manager and host Ogie Diaz has confirmed that his talent Liza Soberano was considered as the next Darna.
“Isa siya sa mga choices,” said Ogie in an interview with the press.
Ogie said he would accept the role for Liza in the event that it was offered to her.
“Itong Darna, super hero, maraming may gusto na gumanap pa ring Darna," he said.
“Imagine-in mo yung history ng mga gumanap na Darna, like si ate Vi (Vilma Santos), so kung si Liza ang mapipili for the role, siyempre tatangapin namin 'yun,” he continued.
Meanwhile, Ogie likewise commented on the persistent suggestions for Liza to join a beauty pageant. Many were saying that the My Ex and Whys star was a shoo-in for the crown.
Unlike many, however, Ogie isn't too keen in letting Liza join any beauty pageant.
“Paano kung hindi siya manalo? Sa tingin ko, hindi niya na naman kailangang sumali sa Bb. Pilipinas dahil Liza Soberano na siya," said Ogie.
The seasoned entertainment columnist likewise stressed that Liza is really busy these days.
“At ang dami-dami niyang raket, kaya hindi niya na mabibigyan ng oras yung training para sa Bb. Pilipinas," he further explained.
According to Ogie, the Binibining Pilipinas is the best avenue for newbies who are looking at a good jumpstart in their career.
“Ang dapat sumali sa Bb Pilipinas, yung mga baguhan lang, na kung mananalo sila ay makakatulong sa kanila yung title,” Ogie stated.
