It finally happened: Jane de Leon has met one of her “Darna” predecessors, and it’s none other than Marian Rivera!
The two crossed paths on Tuesday’s star-studded opening of Belo’s new flagship branch in BGC, Taguig City, where Jane was officially launched as the newest face of the cosmetics group.
As seen in a video shared by doctor to the stars Vicki Belo on her Instagram Stories page, Marian, was introduced to the new “Darna” star by her husband, Hayden Kho, following the event’s program.
Marian said it was nice to have met Jane in a photo of them she later shared on her Instagram Stories page.
Following Angel Locsin’s portrayal of Darna in 2005, Marian portrayed the Filipina superheroine in the hit GMA-7 television series, “Mars Ravelo’s Darna” in 2009, with Dennis Trillo starring as her leading man.
Meanwhile, Jane will topbill Star Cinema’s reboot of “Darna” after she was chosen to replace Liza Soberano, who backed out of the project last April due to a finger injury.
Taping for the big screen project, according to Jane, is expected to begin in 2020 at ABS-CBN’s Horizon sound stages in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.
