KAMI learned that Liza Soberano does not want to have a stunt double in her upcoming portrayal of Mars Ravelo's "Darna" however she would get one if the stunts become too dangerous.
At a recent MegaproPlus Karaoke press conference, Liza said,
"As much as possible, no, because I want to do all my stunts. Mas madali rin para sa director 'pag ganun."
"If it becomes too life-threatening, of course, I would have someone do that for me kasi I don't want to risk my life."
She has tried the harness and said,
"Masakit po talaga s'ya. Probably po, 'yung magiging difficult sa'kin 'yung timing when it comes to stunts. Kasi 'yun talaga, you really have to look strong but not too strong because you don't want to hurt the person doing the scene. We have to make it look believable. Because I'm not actually going to hurt, but the stuntmen. Nagpapalakas po ako para sa mga stunts!"
She met with director Erik Matti to show how strong she is, what she is capable of and continues to do cardio workouts to prepare for the role.
Liza is also about to study dance steps to improve her grace, timing, and also for fitness.
She would also like to be the one to shout the iconic comic book character's name, and yes, even sing the theme song if ABS-CBN would allow it but she is yet to practice her shout.
"Feeling ko di nila ako kukunin. Pero kung ico-consider nila ako, why not? Di ko pa po s'ya pinapractice. Nahihiya po ako sa sarili ko na i-practice s'ya! Kasi 'di ko pa po alam kung papano 'yung tamang way talaga. But if they tell me na ako talaga 'yung sisigaw ng Darna, then I'm willing."
She is willing to wear any costume approved by the management and even ready to wear even a sexy one because as she pointed out,
"Yes, I am maturing and I think it's about time!"
When Enrique Gil heard about the news, she said,
"When he found out, he was supportive naman. He said kaya ko 'yan. Now, sinasamahan n'ya na rin ako sa pagwoworkout."
She has not watched all Darna movies and has been relying on Matti for guidance on her take on the character. Of the past Darnas, she has only met Sharon Cuneta and Angel Locsin and both have been supportive and said,
"I think they all did well and all of them have a different perspective of portraying the role."
She still has no idea on who will be with her in the movie besides Enrique and as for Anne Curtis being rumored to play Darna's nemesis, Valentina:
"I'd love to work with Ate Anne. I love Ate Anne! But of course, it all depends on her."
Whoever Valentina would be, Liza's Darna will show her what she's got.
"The first time that they announced I'm going to be Darna, I'm feeling very happy. Of course, there are those who said I can't do it or I don't fit in the role, but I respect that because I can't control everybody's mind...But I still want to prove to everybody that I am and I can be Darna. I can do it and I'll try my best!"
