It has been a great 24 hours for the young Jane De Leon.
The Halik actress and It’s Showtime Girltrends member continues to be elated after being announced as the next woman to play Darna in the upcoming titular film by Jerrold Tarog. After posting her address of thanks on Instagram, her celebrity friends continued to shower her with their warmest congratulations. Yet, the congratulatory remarks do not end there.
The General’s Daughter lead Angel Locsin commended Jane for getting the role on an Instagram post by ABS-CBN Films executive Mico Del Rosario. Locsin played the iconic Filipino superhero in the GMA television series in 2005.
Apart from Angel, Liza Soberano, who was originally chosen to play Darna in the supposed 2020 film, also gave her praise to the young actress.
Angel Locsin was supposed to reprise the role but had to back out due to her physical condition. After tons of auditions from various actresses, Liza Soberano was picked to replace Locsin last May 2017. However, last April 2019, Liza dropped the role to tend to her right finger bone injury.
It was yesterday, June 2019, when ABS-CBN Films Managing Director Olivia M. Lamasan announced via ABS-CBN News that Jane De Leon would be the next actress who would play Darna.
