De Leon received some tips from her predecessor Angel Locsin.
Jane de Leon is gearing up for her role in Mars Ravelo’s Darna: The TV Series. It’s scheduled to premiere this September on ABS-CBN.
The actress is happy she bagged the title role but is aware it requires intense training. That’s why she favors SantÃ© Barley’s products. Their SantÃ© Barley powder and Daily-C help her immune system stay strong. It’s the company’s flagship product and it has Vitamin C and Zinc.
She likes SantÃ© Barley products because she’s “always acidic.” Their products are gentle on the stomach since they’re made from New Zealand barley grass. It’s rich in vitamins and minerals that cleanse the body and strengthen the immune system.
According to de Leon, working professionals need to take care of themselves. “Before we can become heroes for others, we need to ensure that we’re healthy and strong. I’ve always considered health to be important, especially now that we’re in a pandemic.”
Jane de Leon on Angel Locsin
During a SantÃ© Barley presscon, de Leon talked about getting advice from Angel Locsin. Locsin had also played Darna in the past. In fact, she was set to reprise her role but had to give it up due to health problems.
Liza Soberano replaced Angel but begged off after sustaining an injury. It was then that ABS-CBN brought de Leon on board. She says it sunk in when she tried on the costume for the first time.
“‘Yung headdress, pagkasuot po sa ’kin, mangiyak-ngiyak na po talaga ako, umiyak po talaga ako. After ilang years, 2019 po kasi ako in-announce and nasukat ko ‘yung costume last year lang. Parang doon lang po talaga sa’kin nag-sink in na, this is it,” she shared.
Angel then told her to listen to what her body needed and to study the role.
“Sabi niya sa ’kin kapag pagod ako, sabihin ko lang daw talaga na I need to rest,” de Leon said.
Jane de Leon has already reviewed all the previous Darna movies and series. But she admitted that “actually, tumatak po talaga, siyempre, Ms. Angel.”
