Jane de Leon’s rigorous training for ‘Darna’ revealed by acting coach

As part of Jane de Leon’s preparation for her starring role in the new reprise of “Darna” as the titular superheroine, the actress underwent intensive acting workshops to fully embody her character.

In a report by ABS-CBN News, Jane’s acting coach Rahyan Carlos revealed that her training in acting goes way back when she entered showbiz, even before she nabbed the role of Darna.

“Masipag siya sa workshop,” he described Jane. “Kaya ko nalamang masipag kasi galing pa silang Laguna ng nanay niya, uwian talaga. It’s a rigorous, intensive training na three times a week, nandoon ka sa workshop.”

When Jane was chosen to play the iconic superheroine, she prepared for the role by having extensive one-on-one workshops with Rahyan who taught her using the Chubbuck technique.

“Umaabot kami ng, almost everyday, six to seven hours a day, bago sila mag-lock in. Sabi ko kay Jane, ‘Sorry, ‘nak. Hindi tayo aalis dito hanggang hindi ka mahusay.’ So wala, paiyakan talaga kami doon sa workshop hanggang sa mapiga ko siya,” he explained.

Rahyan added that the similarities shared by Jane and Narda, the mortal counterpart of Darna, became a source for the actress to convey the emotional depth of her TV character.

“Ang inner motivation ni Narda is para patunayan na worthy siya and protector siya ng bato. Si Jane, sa kaka-workshop, gusto niyang patunayan na mahusay siyang artista,” he said.

“Darna: The TV Series,” which is helmed by acclaimed director Chito S. Roño with director Avel Sunpongco, will premiere this August.

The series will also star Janella Salvador, Joshua Garcia, and Zaijan Jaranilla.
