Jane De Leon earns the iconic role of ‘Darna’


Mars Ravelo‘s Darna had several incarnations. On Philippine television, GMA-7 was successful in mounting two Darnas. First, it was Angel Locsin in 2005. The show had high ratings and the pilot week averaged at 50.08%, and its highest rating was 52.1%. Four years later (2009), it was Marian Rivera‘s turn to take on the iconic Filipino female superhero.

The Four Darnas

From top most: Marian Rivera and Angel Locsin assumed the iconic female superhero in 2005 and 2009, respectively. Liza Soberano was chosen by Star Cinema to take on the role via its annoucement in 2017, but had to quit due to her finger injury. Jane De Leon is the latest choice to breathe into the role of Narda and Darna at the same time.

 

But when the license for Darna went to ABS-CBN 2, Locsin was considered to reprise her role. Due to her back injury, she was compelled to resign.

In 2017, after the long wait, Liza Soberano was chosen to succeed Locsin. However, almost a year after the announcement, the 21-year-old Fil-Am Star Magic artist withdrew from the film project due to another injury. But just today, a 20-year-old rising female star, Jane De Leon was revealed as the new Darna.

But what is even intriguing was that it was not just the lead stars who were resigning. Erik Matti, the director also left the project and another filmmaker Jerrold Tarog took over.

De Leon is no newbie in acting since she has appeared in films like The Debutantes (2017) and Walwal (2018), respectively. She played the younger sister of Jericho Rosales in the TV series, Halik.
