In celebration of Women’s Month, Jane de Leon, this generation’s Darna paid tribute to Angel Locsin, Marian Rivera, and other actresses who previously played the Pinay super heroine in movie and television.
The 21-year-old actress posted photos of Nanette Medved, Cong. Vilma Santos-Recto, Anjanette Abayari, Regine Velasquez, Sharon Cuneta, Angel Locsin, Marian Rivera, and Rosa Del Rosario.
Although technically, Liza Soberano wasn’t able to portray the iconic role, Jane still included her photo.
Jane considers these women as her inspiration for playing the role of Darna. She is set to star in the upcoming film adaptation under Star Cinema remake helmed by film director Jerrold Tarog.
Read her post below:
“I respect and salute all these women (and to all the Darnas before them) who became a symbol of a strong and independent Filipina. The voice of their generation who have been continuously doing their part as superheroes behind the costume through their individual achievements, efforts, and advocacies to help humanity and nature in general.
“You are all and will always be an inspiration today and onwards,” she wrote.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Jane has started shooting the film with director Jerrold Tarog.
