Yen Santos Reveals Reason Why She Can’t Be “Darna”

Once again, the ball is rolling in the search for the next “Darna.”

Ever since Liza Soberano withdrew from the role, netizens and showbiz insiders weighed in on who should play this iconic superheroine.

Among those who were nominated for the role is “Halik” star Yen Santos.

It is not surprising why many people opted for the 24-year-old actress. Appearance-wise, her ‘morena’ beauty is perfect for the role of “Darna.”

In addition to that, her acting prowess is also undeniable. Yen truly embodies a strong and empowered woman; just like our Pinay superheroine.

However, it seems like she won’t be flying anytime soon.

In an interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal, Yen Santos revealed her thoughts on being the next “Darna.” When asked if she’s willing to take on the challenge, the “Halik” star laughed it off and jokingly said:

“Wow naku po! Baka po puwedeng ako na lang yung bato. Naku! Feeling ko po ano, hindi po ‘yun para sa akin.”

Even though Yen has closed the doors, many fans are still hoping that she would have a change of heart. After all, she’s one of the very few actresses who can definitely do justice to this iconic role. Fingers crossed!

On the other hand, in three weeks, the primetime series “Halik” will finally be ending.

During its air, “Halik” is one of the highest-rating shows in the Kapamilya network. Indeed, many fans will surely miss the love life drama of Jackie (Yen), Lino (Jericho Rosales), Jade (Yam Concepcion), and Ace (Sam Milby).

Yen Santos expressed her gratitude to her fans and televiewers who supported them throughout the high-rating show.

“Super-duper happy and very thankful talaga na naging hit yung show. And siyempre sobrang pasasalamat namin sa fans na talagang tinutukan kami from the very beginning.”
