MANILA, Philippines – Because Angel Locsin has quit the project due to a spine injury (recently treated at a Singapore hospital), there have been speculations that several Kapamilya actresses are being considered (or eyed’) for the remake of Darna, the komiks superheroine that propelled Angel to stardom at the Kapuso Network GMA 7.
The “probable” candidates include Jessy Mendiola, Liza Soberano, Nadine Lustre, Maja Salvador, Arce Muñoz and…even Sarah Geronimo?
According to Funfare’s Bohol Avenue sources, the “most likely” to bag the coveted role is…drum roll, please!...Ritz Azul (photo), the newest Kapamilya recruit from Kapatid Network TV5 which discovered Ritz.
“She’s now undergoing thorough training,” added the sources.
Before that, Ritz will take a bow as a Kapamilya in the forthcoming soap Promise of Forever with Ejay Falcon and Paulo Avelino as leading men. —Photo by VER PAULINO
