Rufa Mae Quinto is very willing to be the next Darna - and she's confident that she can pull it off unlike anybody else.
On "Tonight With Boy Abunda" yesterday, April 25, Rufa Mae shared that netizens have been pushing her to audition for the role.
"Noong una sabi ko, nagjo-joke ba 'tong mga 'to? Kasi noon pa nu'ng lumabas si Wonder Woman, nilabas din nila 'yung Super B transformation ko," she said, drawing laughs from the audience.
Rufa Mae also gave Star Cinema, the production outfit behind "Darna”, a shoutout.
"[Actually,] Sinabi ko na [na gusto ko]," she laughed.
"Sabi ko kay Eric John Salut, 'Mars, maraming nagrerequest sa taumbayan. Baka merong role for me.'"
She also used the interview as a chance to appeal to Star Cinema about her interest in the much-coveted role.
"If you are listening Star Cinema, then you'll choose me! From Super B, to Super D, [to] Cup D, [to] Super DBD!" she jested.
What could then be her edge among the other actresses?
The comedienne of course gave a sample of what could be her audition piece, with matching cartwheel and a unique way of asking the stone, "Ding, ang bato to to!" as she shouts the iconic name with a twist, "Darna! Wooh!!!"
