- Iza Calzado was supposed to play Darna in its 2005 series adaptation
- The Kapamilya actress shared that she lost the role due to her figure
- She also mentioned that she went under the knife for the part
Fate has a lot of plans for us - there are times things go according to plan while there are instances these plans are made for others.
KAMI was shocked upon knowing that Iza Calzado was the original pick to play Darna in 2005, which then went to Angel Locsin.
That series catapulted Angel to stardom, making her every Pinoy's pick to play Darna still.
Iza shared that she lost the role due to her figure, as she is required to be fit to rock Darna's iconic red and gold two-piece suit.
It can be recalled that during that time, the 34-year-old actress was at the peak of her fame and has lost a hundred pounds.
Despite her efforts, such as going under the knife, the role was given to Angel.
She said that Darna has to be perfect, which she was not. Although she was hurt at first, she then realized that the role was not meant for her.
Although there have been rumors she was one of the choices to play the iconic Pinay superhero for its film adaptation, she said that it will not be her.
If Iza did fit the role, do you think she will be a Darna we'll never forget? Let KAMI know what you think!
