I kinda see now what the producers/management saw in Jane De Leon as the new darna. May innocent look siya ni narda but has that powerful and strong aura ng kay darna. 🧐 pic.twitter.com/YBQoBfDOUQ— A (@_faithcredo) July 17, 2019

If you've been wondering where you've seen Jane de Leon, she's been in shows like
Halik, making funny and kilg moments with her co-star Gab Lagman in their quirky yet complicated boss-employee relationship.
La Luna Sangre, as a kickass Moonchaser vanquishing vampire ass.
In an episode of Ipaglaban Mo, where she plays a more serious role as a 17-year old rape victim seeking out justice.
As a regular in the dance group, Girltrends, featured in the noontime show, Showtime.
We at AO definitely have no objections to this casting this multi-talented and simply gorgeous girl as the next Darna. We're excited to see how she makes the role of Darna her own. Here's to more strong female figures in cinema!
But seriously, that smile could save the world ten times over.
