Jane de Leon became speechless after landing the role of Darna!
In a Facebook video posted today, July 18, we finally saw how she reacted when ABS-CBN’s top executives, including President Carlo Katigbak, Chief Content Officer and University President Charo Santos-Concio, Chief Operating Officer for Broadcast Cory Vidanes, Star Cinema Managing Director Olivia M. Lamasan, Star Cinema Executive Adviser to Cinema Malou Santos, broke the news that she has been chosen for the iconic superhero role in a meeting last June 15.
She thought it was simply another callback interview.
Watch it here:
The actress could not contain her emotions while being congratulated by the executives.
Before the announcement, the young actress promised her full commitment to the project, saying, “100 percent po talaga. I can surrender all for her, for that character. ‘Yung desire ko po talaga, nandoon po talaga.”
Jane will soon start her preparations for the reboot, which will be helmed by director Jerrold Tarog.
