Jane de Leon is one tough girl.
In an Instagram post yesterday, November 22, the actress, who just celebrated her 21st birthday, penned a message addressed to her past self, commending her for overcoming the challenges that she encountered.
She wrote, “Dear Past Jane, you just entered an extremely tough industry, girl! I know exactly what you’re feeling right now — the uncertainties, the insecurities and the constant fear of not knowing if you’ll ever get your big break. Life is tough, and I know it’s hard for you to commute with that bulky luggage of yours, from workshops to castings to shoots like you used to before.
The actress continued, “Naalala mo ba 'yung time where you had to run after a bus dahil alam mong you'd be late if you missed it? Kumusta naman 'yung mga panahong halos sa ABS-CBN ka na matulog dahil wala kang sapat na pera to head back home to Laguna after your workshop? And that one time you almost called it quits when things didn’t work your way? You were always tired and exhausted and yet you didn’t give up.”
“So I’m reminding you not to give up; Huwag ngayon, because big things are about to happen. I promise!!! GOD has been so good and gracious to you. Be thankful always on all these blessings that have come your way. Magpasalamat ka lang lagi sa Panginoon at sa lahat ng naging parte ng journey mong ito. We’re almost there! Kaya AJA!” Jane ended.
Before being chosen as the lucky actress to play the iconic Filipina superhero Darna in its upcoming reboot helmed by Direk Jerrold Tarog, Jane was an actress under ABS-CBN’s talent management arm Star Magic, and has starred in several teleseryes, including “La Luna Sangre” and Halik.” The actress was also a part of the 2018 flick “Walwal.”
We're proud of you, Jane, and we wish you a wonderful birthday!
