- Angel Locsin is set to play Darna again for its 2017 film remake
- Jessy Mendiola commented that Angel is meant to reprise her role
- The 'Banana Sundae' actress was the alleged reason why Angel and Luis Manzano broke up
The press just could not leave Jessy Mendiola alone whenever news of Angel Locsin pops up.
'The Third Party' actress will reprise her role as Darna in the 2017 flick of the same name, which is directed by Erik Matti.
Prior to Angel's commitment to the job, there has been an open call on who should be the next Darna.
Jessy's name has cropped up in the alleged list, but the 'Banana Sundae' actress insisted that it was not even offered to her.
This response bolsters her real reaction regarding Angel's repeat performance, which has been interpreted as disappointment.
"Hindi naman po siya binigay sa akin to begin with so bakit naman ako malulungkot? I think lahat naman ng natanong tungkol doon sa role na ‘yon open naman I mean sino ba namang may ayaw?", she said.
(The role was not given to me to begin with so why will I be sad? I think everyone asked about that role and it was open, I mean who does not want to get it?)
Playing the iconic superhero is a serious feat in one's career, which means that whoever gets it will be forever remembered as such.
Despite her implications, Jessy noted that Angel still deserves to play Darna.
"Karapat-dapat lang naman talaga na siya," she said.
(She truly deserves to play the role.)
Jessy has already conceded on who should be the next Darna and we hope that could put an end to the never-ending connection of the actress to the ex of her rumored boyfriend.
Aside from Kapamilya host Luis Manzano, Jessy and Angel have another thing in common - they found love in succeeding relationships, just like these other actresses.
