Kathryn Bernardo, ayaw mag-Darna?: 'It's not for me'

Kathryn Bernardo doesn't see herself as Darna.

In a recent report by PEP, "The Hows of Us" star revealed that while it would be a dream come true to take on the iconic Filipino superheroine, it doesn't seem to be in the cards for her.

"It's not for me. Personally, Darna is such an iconic role," said Kathryn. "Alam mo, dream lahat ng babae siguro na maging si Darna, pero, siguro, it's not for me kasi hindi porke't gusto mo 'yung role, pwede siya sa'yo."

She continued, "For me, may binabagayan siya, and 'yung nai-imagine, napi-picture ko as Darna is someone who's a bit older than me."

For Kathryn, to represent one of the most empowered characters in Filipino culture, one should be fully equipped to take the responsibilities that come along with it - and that means being physically and mentally ready.

"Alam mo, 'yung nangyari kay Liza (Soberano), sobrang totoo 'yun," she said. "Kasi kapag kami po sa fight scenes (sa 'La Luna Sangre' noon), kunwari madadala ka na sa eksena, so minsan hindi mo na maaalalayan. Ang dami mong pasa, ang dami mo talagang sugat. Hindi mo maiiwasan."

She continued, "And super hirap talaga gumawa ng action film o action teleserye. Ibang hirap siya, ibang level siya nung na-experience ko siya."

As a fan of Darna though, Kathryn promised to be supportive of the lucky actress who will finally bring Darna back to life.

"Kung sino man ang next, she'll have my full support as a fan of Darna. Siya nagre-represent ng woman empowerment sa atin and yeah, we'll support her kung sino man siya," she enthused.

Kathryn is currently in Hong Kong with Alden Richards to shoot their upcoming Cathy Garcia-Molina movie.
