Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray is reaching zeniths every day in her reign; from spreading awareness through her advocacy to doing national endorsements, Catriona seems to have conquered it all. The next step on her ladder of success seems to be a movie as she is open to trying everything in her life.

After Liza Soberano, an acclaimed movie star of the Philippines withdrew from doing Star Cinema’s revival of Mars Ravelo’s ‘Darna’ due to an injured finger, the part is now open for everyone. During a recent press launch at Jolly Twirl, Catriona answered fans’ clamor for her to don the Filipina superhero’s costume, which is also red like the lava gown she wore during her coronation. She replied, “Am I open to acting po? Yes, I’m open to any opportunity that comes my way.”

Already a superhero to numerous underprivileged kids through her charity, Catriona has emulated the superhero role in her personal life. She is also one of the names that the fans are throwing around as the replacement of Liza in the movie. Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is another name circling the role as she already has plans to audition for the role.

If Catriona Gray will audition for the role is yet to be known, it is sure that the Filipina fans will go into a frenzy if the reigning Miss Universe queen becomes the next ‘Darna’. Catriona Gray’s entry into the movies will only move her a step ahead and add another feather in her bag of accomplishments.
