“Honestly, sa maniwala ho kayo o sa hindi, natutuwa ako, kasi kami ni Angela ang nanalo. Kasama ko siya sa stage.

“Sa bahay pa lang, sinasabi ko sa make-up artist ko, kahit kay Ynez Veneracion, sa lahat ng nandoon, ‘Masarap manalo ng award. Masarap yung nandito ka, nagpapasalamat at hawak mo ‘to [tropeo].’

“Pero po dumating ako sa point na kuntento na ako.

“Masarap yung maririnig ko na lang sa mga importanteng tao at sa lahat ng mga taong naniniwala sa akin na nagampanan kong mabuti yung pelikulang ‘yon.

“At ang dami kong narinig. Nagpapasalamat ako. Tropeo ko na ‘yon.

“At ang sinabi ko kanina, ayan si Ynez—gusto ko, si Angela ang manalo.”

And on stage facing Angela the actress said…

“Alam mo, bakit kasi, gusto kong bigyan ng tsansa yung mga bata, yung mga bagong artista…

“Na katulad ko rin noon, ahmm… grabe rin yung hirap at gapang ko para tawaging isang aktres. Hindi starlet.

“Hindi… hindi… ahmm, kung anu-anong… kung anu-anong salita.

“Iyong aktres in the true sense of the word.”

“Alam niyo po, ahh… masaya ako para sa ‘yo, Angela!

“Totoo lang. Sa totoo lang, K!”

“Ito ang magsisilbi po ulit na bagong inspirasyon sa karera kong ito,”

She also mentioned that receiving trophies would even make her a better actress.

“At higit sa lahat, dapat magpasalamat sa Diyos at sa lahat ng mga taong naniniwala sa ‘yo.

“Hindi ito reason para ikayabang ko.

“Maraming-maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat. Nagkatotoo ang sinabi ko.

“Gusto ko na manalo si Nar [Cabico] at si Angela, dahil gusto kong iangat sila bilang mga bagong artista.”

“Jesusa” is a film set in a rundown community where she leads a normal life until circumstances drag her to be swallowed by the low lives of her neighbor. The movie is set in a shanty town where drug abuse is prevalent and difficult family dramas are a norm. The premise of the film revolves around a simple woman who leads a rather “ordinary life” with her philandering husband.

LEA SALONGA wants new Darna to be morena or kayumanggi so they can “represent the darker skinned Pinays.”

Lea Salonga expressed her hopes that ABS-CBN and Star Cinema will select a Darna who is morena or kayumanggi.

In her Twitter account, the Broadway actress posted:

“So, what would I love to see as Darna? Someone morena or kayumanggi to represent the darker skinned Pinays to let them know they are powerful and beautiful exactly as they are. I’d also love for her to be a relative unknown. Let the story sell the film. That is all.”

Former Darna director Erik Matti comforted Liza by saying that she should not cry over this missed opportunity.

He posted his photo with Liza and wrote in the caption:

“Surprised to hear about @lizasoberano letting go of #Darna You would have been great for the part. I wish you all the best. Defi nitely, there’s life after Darna. Take care always, Hope. Don’t cry no more.”

Direk Erik first worked on the Darna movie in 2014 but in October 2018, he left the project because of “creative differences” with ABS-CBN and Star Cinema.

That same month, it was announced that Jerrold Tarog is the new director of Darna.
