If you haven’t heard the scoop yet, Liza Soberano is set to have a different leading man for “Darna”. And while the young actress herself and the production team remain elusive about updates on the upcoming film, netizens may have just found out an interesting discovery recently: Tony Labrusca will possibly portray the role of the superheroine’s love interest.
Last week, March 8, director Erik Matti shared an intriguing photo taken at a production meeting, where Liza and a white-shirt-clad guy were witnessed. The catch is, the head of the rumored leading man was concealed with a smiling emoji.
But, even the director’s effort to keep the guy’s identity a secret wasn’t enough to trick snoopers. Within only a couple of hours, dozens of tweeps who believe that the man was indeed Tony rained in on the thread.
However, when the “La Luna Sangre” star was cornered by entertainment reporters in an event, he didn’t confirm the speculations. Instead, Tony expressed his hope to work with both Liza and her on-screen partner, Enrique Gil, in the same project.
“If I was given the chance to work with Liza or LizQuen, that would just be an amazing opportunity. It would be a huge blessing na makakatulong talaga sa career ko and makakatulong sa akin bilang entertainer as an actor, marami pa akong matutunan sa kanila.”
According to Tony, he has only met the actress once, but instantly had a good feeling about her. During the interview, the “Pinoy Boy Band Superstar” graduate had nothing but great things to say about Liza.
