6 Actresses Who Would Be Perfect As The Next Valentina
Bets are in and fans are going wild!
Developments of the upcoming Darna film have reignited rumors about actresses being considered for the titular character as well as Valentina, Darna's super sultry, snake-haired nemesis.
Anne Curtis was rumored to have been tapped for the role of Valentina. But speculations for this role resurfaced last week, when people got the impression that Denise Laurel could be part of the upcoming Darna movie. On a Tonight With Boy Abunda episode, Denise tried on a Valentina-esque snake headpiece and recited the character's incantation.
The seconds-long moment had the studio audience explode in applause and had many more talking about how Denise's onscreen intensity and sensuality could make her a perfect fit for the legendary comic villainess.
The 31-year-old has likewise expressed some interest in playing the role on Twitter, when a fan suggested she would be perfect as the superheroine.
Despite the prolonged and fine-tooth combed search for the actress to play Darna, the role remains to be up for grabs. No announcement has been made as well regarding who will be Valentina.
In the meantime, we think the following actresses can absolutely do justice to the role of Valentina, previously played by the likes of Cristina Aragon (Darna, 1951), Celia Rodriguez (Lipad, Darna, Lipad!, 1973), Pilar Pilapil (Darna, 1991), Pilita Corrales (Darna: Ang Pagbabalik, 1994), and Cherie Gil (Darna: Ang Pagbabalik, 1994):
Fans have previously suggested Anne as Valentina, especially since she wowed with her versatility in her recent films like Buy Bust and Aurora.
Denise particularly impressed viewers with her antagonist portrayal as Bianca Buenaflor in The Better Half.
Her sexy aura matches the overall look and vibe of Valentina's character. With her untapped potential in acting, this could even be her breakout role, too.
With Iza's versatility and tried-and-tested acting chops, it's easy to imagine what an amazing job she would do for this role.
Dimples is currently making waves as Daniela Mondragon and creating an iconic (read: meme-worthy) character out of it in the afternoon serye Kadenang Ginto.
Even with her sweet face and charming personality, the pixie cut beauty can be pretty fierce on-cam, too, as proven by her role as Samantha Imperial in La Luna Sangre.
The newest Darna film, which remains untitled, is slated to premier in 2020.
