MANILA – James Reid once said he’s a fan of his girlfriend, actress Nadine Lustre.

Naturally, it is expected for him to root for his lady love when asked if he thinks Lustre would make a good Darna.

In a Philstar article, Reid was quoted to have said Lustre deserves to play the iconic Filipino superheroine because “she’s very powerful.”

“She’s a strong woman, so I think she’s fit in the role very well,” he said.

The “Darna” movie was supposed to star Liza Soberano as the titular character, but the actress withdrew from the high-profile project last month due to an injury that limited the stunts she could do, as required of the role.

Following Soberano’s exit, names on who could take on the role again surfaced.

Lustre, who has consistently ranked in fan polls on the next Darna, earlier thanked those who consider her worthy of the project.

“I super appreciate that. For them to see me as a person who is strong and very empowered – Darna is a strong woman and nakikita nila sa akin 'yun, it’s good.

“I want to thank everyone for the support of course but Darna kasi, I am sure, it will be given to someone who is deserving for the role and someone who can really give justice,” she said a the time.

Following Soberano’s resignation, Star Cinema said it has started the selection process for the new actress who will portray Darna in the movie.
