Could Yam Concepcion be the next Darna?
The talented actress, who became a household name after her nakakagigil portrayal of Jade in the hit primetime series “Halik”, told us in an exclusive interview after the series’ finale media conference today, April 11, that she is seriously considering maybe auditioning for the lead role in “Darna.” ABS-CBN and Star Cinema are on the hunt for the next actress to portray the iconic Filipina superhero after Liza Soberano pulled out due to a hand injury.
“Ang daming nagsasabi na kamukha ko si Anjanette Abayari, 'bakit hindi ka mag-audition?' Mag-audition kaya ako? Pero parang nafe-feeling-an ako sa sarili ko. Parang, bagay ba sa akin?” Yam humbly answered.
The significance of Darna is not lost on Yam, who understands the cultural weight of donning Darna’s legendary costume. She explained, “Pero siyempre, 'pag naging Darna ka, part na 'yun ng history ng Pilipinas. So nakakatuwa, exciting, why not? Sana! Or pwede ding Valentina, kasi ahas naman si Jade.”
