With the much-anticipated Pinoy superhero series Darna set to resume shooting this September, lead star Jane De Leon said goodbye to her guest role in the long-running action drama series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. The 22-year-old Kapamilya actress shared a gratitude post on her Instagram account last Friday, August 20, which also marked her character Lia Mante’s departure from the series.
Jane wrote, “Nagpapasalamat po ako unang-una kay Lord, sa Dreamscape Family, ABS-CBN Management and Bosses for giving me the opportunity na mapabilang sa Primetime Seryeng FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. Sa buong cast and Production, Lalong-lalo na kay Direk Coco Martin for being so supportive sa pag-alalay sa bawat eksenang gagawin ko. It was an honor and privilege for me to be casted and be part of the show. Thank you for the warm welcome. Sobrang dami ko pong natutunan at sa mga eksenang dito ko lang po nagawa. It was worth the experience.”
In the same post, Jane made sure to personally thank her Ang Probinsyano co-stars Michael de Mesa, Joel Torre, Angel Aquino, Jaime Fabregas, Cristina Gonzales, Christian Alvarez, John Prats, and Coco Martin.
“Yung magandang samahan at kwentuhan, tawanan, pangaral at gabay na ibinigay sakin ay di po matatawaran at siguradong mamimiss ko. Syempre po, sa aking Team Jane mahal ko kayo! At sa lahat na walang sawang nanuod sumubaybay sa FPJ-AP gabi gabi at kay Capt. Lia Mante, MARAMING MARAMING SALAMAT PO SA INYONG SUPORTA. “Hanggang sa muli! “THIS IS CAPT. LIA MANTE - SIGNING OFF.”
Earlier this year, Jane admitted it was a real dream come true for her to be invited to join the long-running show. She played the role of black ops sniper Lia Mante and was introduced as part of the new cast members along with Paolo Paraiso, Geoff Eigenmann, Vance Larena, Marc McMahon, and AJ Raval.
In a previous interview, Jane also shared her experience working up close with actor and director Coco Martin. “Napakabait niyang tao at napaka-gentleman niya and hindi mo mararamdaman na anything na mabigat sa aura niya. Nakikita ko rin na napaka professional niya na aktor,” she said.
