Here's Proof That Filipino "Darna" Fans Approve Of Jane De Leon's Casting
Fame has come knocking on Jane de Leon's door, and she's ready to welcome it with open arms!
In case you missed it, this beautiful 20-year-old has officially been chosen as the new actress to portray superheroine Darna in an upcoming movie-slash-reboot about the iconic comic book character.
Jane, who's got acting credits of her own to boast of, will be replacing Liza Soberano after the latter voluntarily gave up the role due to an injury that required her to undergo surgeries and take a step back from showbiz.
Although it's been just a little bit over 24 hours since Jane was thrust into the limelight, Filipino audiences have already expressed their approval for this movie star in the making by making their presence felt on her social media accounts.
Going from less than 750,000 followers to 913,000 followers in a blink, Jane's Instagram account has gotten a massive surge in engagement, with tons of her fans hungry to learn more about their newest idol.
The actress' newest post—a big shoutout and thank you to those she said believed in her enough to give her this opportunity—has racked up close to 100,000 likes and hundreds of comments, many of which were from fellow celebrities.
Liza lead the wave of comments by penning a simple congratulations for her, while Maymay Entrata, Tim Yap, Megan Young, Inigo Pascual, Chie Filomeno, Darren Espanto, and Elisse Joson soon followed with their own well-wishes for her.
"MARAMING MARAMING SALAMAT PO SA TIWALA! Pangako po na pagtratrabahuhan ko po ito at ibibigay ko ang lahat," captioned Jane in the post.
Best of all, Jane's enjoying an upgrade to her online star status with a newly verified Instagram account!
The little blue check next to her Instagram handle confirms her newly gained influence and is definitely a sign for even bigger and brighter things to come.
