Liza Soberano is willing to do everything to make Jane De Leon feel at ease in portraying the much-coveted role of Darna.
The actress, who recently returned in the country from her successful multiple finger surgeries in the United States, was welcomed by her family, friends, and on-and-off screen partner Enrique Gil with a surprise homecoming last July 22.
During the party, Liza's handler Ogie Diaz interviewed the actress about how she reacted to Jane being cast as the new Darna.

"I messaged her tapos nag-message siya agad sa akin," she revealed. "Sobrang thankful siya. Nagulat daw siya na nag-message ako. Sabi ko, iniisip ko lang, ‘Bakit siya magugulat na nag-message ako, eh, siyempre I wanted to welcome her din naman. I wanted her to feel na deserving siya talaga sa role.'"
Liza also revealed that she invited Jane over dinner to further show her support.
"I asked her for dinner kung available siya kasi I'm sure busy na siya mag-training [at] workshop. Sana magkaroon siya ng time cause I want to meet her in person," she enthused.
Liza has been very supportive of Jane since she was announced to portray the iconic female superhero in the upcoming Jerrold Tarog reboot. She extended her support through Jane's Instagram, where she left a message saying that Jane could always come to her if ever she feels "burdened."
She most recently topbilled the Black Sheep-produced film "Alone/Together" alongside Enrique.
