- Liza Soberano already backed out from portraying as “Darna” in upcoming movie
- Her finger injury was said to be the cause of the actress’ withdrawal
- Ogie Diaz, meanwhile, spoke up about the decision of his talent
Ogie Diaz finally expressed his side regarding the much-talked-about withdrawal of Liza Soberano as the lead actress of the upcoming movie, “Darna.”
KAMI learned that the celebrity’s talent manager took to social media his thoughts about the trending withdrawal.
Ogie stated that the actress was really emotional when she was telling him about her decision to back out as the iconic hero.
He even revealed that Liza got afraid that the management will no longer give her roles since she declined portraying an important character.
“Isang araw, tumawag sa akin si Liza. Mag-meeting daw kami. Ayaw niyang sabihin kumbakit. Kaya kinita ko na lang siya. At doon ay ipinakita muna niya ang kanyang daliri na halos kalahating taon yatang therapy at surgery ang pinagdaanan,” the actor wrote.
“Umiiyak siya. Sabi ko, baket? Nahihiya daw siya sa akin at sa Star Magic at sa upper management na baka hindi na niya kayanin pang gawin ang Darna, dahil matatagalan pa nga ang complete healing ng kanyang daliri,” he added.
At the middle part of his post, Ogie confessed that he tried to comfort his talent from the hard decision that she was about to make.
He also told Liza that all things happen for a reason and that she should not worry about future projects because there will certainly be good things that will come to her.
“Sabi ko talaga kay Liza, "Naisip mo pa talaga 'yan, nak? At least, nak, iniisip mo pa rin ang iisipin ng ibang tao at 'yung magiging consequence ng ginawa mo. Ibig sabihin, nagwo-worry ka para sa kanila. Hindi ka selfish…” he said.
"Ibig kong sabihin, pag may nawawala, may dumarating… Kapag para sa 'yo, para sa 'yo. At maniwala ka, marami pang darating na opportunity sa 'yo. Kasi, talented ka, mahusay kang umarte, mabait ka at mabuti kang tao…” he added.
In a previous article by KAMI, Ogie penned a cryptic post about an actress who “recently gave birth.”
Ogie Diaz is a veteran Filipino actor, comedian, and talent manager who is now a cast member of “Home Sweetie Home.”
He became viral few years ago after getting pranked by Vice Ganda on live radio.
