MANILA, Philippines – Angel Locsin said it was “painful” to give up the Star Cinema movie Darna.

“It’s really painful po, masakit po talaga na hindi ko magagawa ‘yong Darna,” Angel said in an interview with ABS-CBN's “Tonight with Boy Abunda” aired on Monday. “Kami po ng ABS-CBN nakapag-usap na kami, nakapag-decide na kami na mas makakabuti po sa lahat kung hindi ko na po gagawin ang Darna.”

The actress had to give up the project after she had a disc bulge on her spine, which was due to the trauma that her bones had after having a number of injuries in the past.

The Kapamilya actress said she wanted to personally explain to her fans why she gave up the role to avoid any misconception about her decision.

“Kasi baka isipin nila, ‘Pinalitan ka lang, nag-inarte ka.’ Hindi po, e. Kung may choice po ako gagawin ko ang Darna. Nagkataon po na a-aksidente ako at kailangan na po lumipad ni Darna. Kaya masakit lang po talaga sa akin na hindi ko na gagawin,” she said.

Angel has been experiencing back pains for a long time now, but she ignored it thinking it was only due to fatigue.

What alarmed her was when she experienced not being able  to stand up or crawl because of the pain.

“Kinabahan na ako kasi iba siya sa dating nararamdaman ko,” she recalled. “Isang oras na ako nasa floor, hindi ko maisigaw ang sarili ko kasi tina-try ko pa bumangoon, ayoko mataranta ‘yong mga kasama ko sa bahay. After an hour nahanap na nila ako, kahit ‘yong pinakamataas na dosage ng painkiller wala na talagang effect sa akin. So kailangan na nila ako dalhin sa ospital.”

She is currently undergoing therapy and and is discussing with her doctor the possibility of undergoing an operation for her disc bulge abroad.

After the incident, Angel admitted thinking of leaving showbiz for good, but the ABS-CBN executives talked to her.

“Kinausap ako ng ABS-CBN, especially nila Tita Malou [Santos] na, ‘Gel, hindi lang naman sa Darna matatapos ang buhay mo, e’,” she said. “May mga plano, so hanggang kailangan pa ako ng mga tao, gusto pa ako ng mga tao, nandito lang ako.”

In the end, Angel thanked her home network and her fans for the support they are giving her.

“I don’t have the right to ask for anything na maintindihan nila ako, na irespeto ang desisyon namin ng ABS-CBN kasi sobra-sobra na po ‘yong suportang ibinigay ninyo,” she told her fans. “Gusto ko lang po magpasalamat sa lahat ng pinakita n’yo sa akin, lagi ko ite-treasure ‘yon kahit anong mangyari. Magte-thank you lang po ako sa inyo, wala akong hihingin na anything. Enough na po ‘yong pinakita n’yo sa akin.” – Joyce Jimenez
