Being tapped to play the iconic ‘Darna’ comes with great responsibility. But Liza Soberano is pulling all stops to prove that she’s deserving to be the new Pinay superheroine. It’s a far cry from her usual pa-tweetums role. But the MODESS® ambassador is doing a mighty fine job in her bagong mundo as ‘Darna’, as revealed on her guesting on Gandang Gabi Vice.
Liza shares that she’s been prepping for over a year now for her role. “May stunt training po ako na martial arts. I tried muay thai, jiu-jitsu, taekwondo, karate--lahat po ng basics tinuturo po sa akin. Meron din akong boxing and I also did weightlifting.” Well, this girl is serious about acing all her challenging action scenes!
“Confident naman po ako because I know I’m working with some of the best trainers (in the country). And buti na lang nauna yung Bagani so kahit papaano may natutunan ako sa training ko and sa mga stunt scenes na ginawa ko... And even though mas mahirap kasi mas diverse ang training ko for Darna, hindi naman po ako nagwo-worry kasi confident ako especially when I have my period.”
Her secret? “Because leaks can’t slow me down, I need total protection. For me, only Modess can do that.” MODESS® All Night offers superior protection during heavy flow days, making it easier for Liza to move comfortably, no matter what.
It’s been a decade since we last saw ‘Darna’ onscreen. The excitement and pressure just keep on building for Liza--especially since the actresses who brought ‘Darna’ to life are as legendary as the heroine herself. “It’s kind of hard to live up to that expectation,” admits Liza. But who says she can’t pull it off?
“I was nervous when I really think about it pero naisip ko na I wanna try something new naman. And of course, Darna is a role I’m sure everybody would love to have. It’s such an honor na ako pa yung napili.”
Liza’s bagong galaw, bagong mundo as ‘Darna’ won’t be an easy journey--but she’s doing great so far. Especially now that MODESS® All Night got the back of our new Pinay superheroine!
Excited to see Liza’s bagong galaw, bagong mundo as ‘Darna’? Stay tuned on how MODESS® empowers our new Pinay superheroine!
