She may not be able to fly as Darna anymore, but she could definitely climb a 15-floor building like a female version of Spider-Man.
On Twitter, Dreamscape PR Eric John Salut shared behind-the-scenes photos taken while filming the death-defying stunts. In the photos, Angel as Rhian Bonifacio could be seen rappelling down one side of a building.
See the photos below:
Meanwhile, netizens expressed their admiration for the actress for her courage to do the stunts herself—with some adding that she still exudes Darna's charm. Even Angel had a funny caption for her photos.

Sir EJ @ericjohnsalut , let’s make a petition para si @143redangel nalang ulit ang mag-DARNA! Kitang-kita naman na bagay na bagay parin sa kanya! Wag nang pahirapan ang ABS sa pagpili. Ito na sya oh! Hahah 😀💯— Ronn Estella (@ronn_estella) May 27, 2019
Back in March, Locsin also did a dangerous stunt by hanging underneath a truck for one of the scenes in The General's Daughter.
Angel Locsin was supposed to play Darna again, but had to back out due to health concerns with her back. Liza Soberano took over the role, but had to withdraw from the project due to a fractured finger.
Locsin's name once again popped up as a replacement as fans wanted to see don the costume of the iconic Pinay superhero once more, but the actress reiterated she would no longer go back on her decision.
