“Between Maybes” actress Julia Barretto finally had a proper opportunity to audition for the iconic role of Darna.
In Tuesday, May 14’s episode of “Tonight With Boy Abunda” the 22-year-old actress showed her take on the reenactment of Darna’s transformation scene.
Barretto also said that her first audition was real, however, the panelist didn’t take her seriously.
“Real talk. I really went… I was ready to ask questions and to shout it if ask, maghubad if needed. They were laughing, siguro they thought I was joking,” she shared.
When asked why she deserves to bag the titular role, she said it’s because she has the capability to empower women. “I am an independent, strong, empowered woman, who can empower other women.”
Barretto is among the netizens’ top picks to play Darna after Liza Soberano dropped the project because of medical reasons.
