Despite the fact that she did not audition for the role or was chosen by the producer to be the next Darna, Nadine Lustre remarked that she feels honored that there are people who wants her to play the Pinay superhero.
"Honestly, I'm just really honored that people like parang they want me to be their Darna kasi I didn't put any effort [for] the movie, I didn't audition or anything," she said in an interview with CNN Philippines on Thursday, when asked about her thoughts on the new Darna.
She added, "To be compared or to be likened kay Darna na, you know, independent, powerful, it's really nice."
On Wednesday, ABS-CBN Films announced that actress Jane de Leon will play as Darna. She will replace Liza Soberano who suffered a fractured finger and backed out from the role.
Prior to the announcement, Nadine Lustre was among the celebrities requested by fans to play the role.
