After years of planning and almost 300 celebrities auditioning for the role of Darna, ABS-CBN Films has finally found the perfect actress to revive our classic hero in the form of 20-year-old Jane De Leon!
This Star Magic artist might be a fresh face to most of you, but Jane has already appeared in numerous TV projects like Ipaglaban Mo, Wansapanataym, and, most recently, Halik where she played as Jericho Rosales' younger sister Maggie.

Aside from her small screen projects, Jane is also a fixture in the noontime show It's Showtime as part of the girl group GirlTrends. Big screen-wise, she also played the character of Carla in the 2018 teen film Walwal where she worked alongside stars Donny Pangilinan, Kisses Delavin, and Elmo Magalona.
After years of nabbing minor roles, Jane is finally set to take on her biggest break, one that every actress her age could only dream of. Since the modern story of Darna is a coming-of-age one, the filmmakers looked for an actress who's young and innocent like Narda yet can portray the strength of Darna. Obviously, our girl was the perfect pick!
