It's official: We won't be seeing Angel Locsin as Darna on the big screen anymore.

According to Star Cinema managing director Malou Santos in an interview with ABS-CBN News, the 31-year old beauty won't be playing the role of the iconic character due to health reasons.

Kumpirmado, Angel tuloy na sa Darna! Posted on Thursday Sep 1st at 4:00am RATED A By Aster Amoyo Sa dinner get-together hosted by ABS-CBN President-CEO Carlo Katigbak para sa mga officer and members ng Professional Artist Managers, Inc. (PAMI) kasama ang mga top-executives ng ABS-CBN tulad nina Cory Vidanes, Malou Santos, Deo Endrinal at iba pang business unit heads ng Kapamilya network, personal naming tinanong ang big boss ng Star Cinema na si Malou Santos kung totoong balik kay Angel Locsin ang pelikulang Darna at hindi na ikinaila ng lady executive. Since ang information ay nanggaling na rin mismo kay Malou, puwede nang kumpirmahin na walang ibang choice na gumanap sa papel na Darna kundi si Angel lamang. Otherwise, matagal na sanang nagbigay ng ibang pangalan ang Star CiĀ­nema para pumalit sa aktres na maalalang umatras sa proyekto dahil sa kanyang pagkakaroon ng back ailment (disc bulge sa spine). Ngayon namin lubos na nauunawaan kung bakit tahimik lamang ang Star Cinema all this time dahil hinintay lamang nila na gumaling si Angel. Unti-unti na ring nagti-training si Angel ng ilang physical activities at kasama na rito ang mountain hiking at scuba diving. Ngayong kumpirmadong si Angel na muli ang gaganap sa papel na Darna, tiyak na magbubunyi ang kanyang mga tagahanga. #Darna2017 #DarnaTheMovie #TheRealDarnaAngelLocsin ... #AngelLocsin #Darna

"Sobrang nalungkot kasi nung una, nung nalaman namin na mayroon siyang problema sa likod, sinabihan na namin siya na she cannot play Darna. But, because deep in our hearts na siya lang ang pwedeng maging Darna, we gave her the chance and she promised to do the therapy na magpapagaling siya para sa kanyang likod," Santos said.

Although fans were excited to see the Third Party star in action, management shares that Angel's health is more important and they wouldn't want to put her at risk.

"So ito na ang pinaka-final verdict na she cannot play Darna kasi mas importante ang buhay niya kaysa sa pelikula na Darna. So ang iisipin ko na lang at least napatunayan niya 'yung dedikasyon niya sa craft niya," Santos added.

It was just two years ago when she had to undergo surgery in Singapore for a developing disc bulge in her spine.

Despite the sad news, it seems like the actress has accepted the fact that she will no longer star in Darna but she is hoping that her fans will give the one who'll replace her the same love and support she has received.

"Sana maintinidhan niyo kami, hindi po madali. Alam kong nilaban niyo ito pero kailangan na siguro natin talaga na harapin ang katotohanan at mag-move on sa magandang mangyayari. So maraming, maraming salamat. 'Di ko makakalimutan ang suportang ibinigay niyo sa akin at suportahan natin ang susunod na magiging Darna," she said.
