- Jane de Leon admitted she and Liza Soberano has finally found time to see each other
- Liza had initially reached out to Jane and expressed an invitation for dinner
- She wished to help Jane deal with pressure and high viewer expectations for her Darna role
Liza Soberano has long wanted to meet Jane de Leon over dinner to give the actress advice on how to handle pressure and high expectations for the role of Darna.
And yes, Jane confirmed that they just recently had dinner together. “We had dinner already.”
The actress did not give details of their conversation, but most likely, her role was included.
Jane admitted that she is starting to feel pressure on the upcoming project for the fictional Filipino superhero Darna. But she is thankful she has support from people around her.
“Oo naman po. Nape-pressure po ako. Kahit naman sino’ng nasa posisyon ko ‘yun ‘yung mararamdaman. Pero siyempre, kailangan mo lang tanggapin lahat. And magdasal. Lalo pa’t meron namang mga tao na nandiyan para suportahan ka,” she said in an interview with Push.
Previously, Liza revealed in a YouTube vlog by her manager Ogie Diaz that she messaged Jane as soon as she knew she got the Darna role.
“I’m really happy for her kasi I messaged her tapos nag-message siya agad sa akin sobrang thankful siya and nagulat daw siya na nag-message ako…iniisip ko bakit siya magugulat na nag-message ako. I wanted to welcome her din naman, and I want her to feel na deserving talaga siya sa role,” Liza opened up.
Liza agreed that Jane fits the role because she has that superhero looks comparable to that of Gal Gadot, who portrayed Wonder Woman.
“’Yong mukha niya maganda talaga siya parang innocent pero may sense of strength,” the actress added.
Liza, unfortunately, backed out of the role due to an index finger injury. Though her finger got fixed after several operations abroad, she still needs to rest her finger for a year to fully recover.
Jane was also touched to see advice from actresses who formerly played the role of Darna like Sharon Cuneta and Regine Velasquez. They told her to take care of her health because the character has a lot of fight scenes that are physically demanding.
She has yet to meet Angel Locsin and Marian Rivera, too.
We are looking forward to finally seeing Darna on the big screen again, Jane!
