- Jane de Leon has been casted for the highly-anticipated movie 'Darna'
- Liza Soberano revealed that she messaged Jane as soon as the news came out
- Her message elicited reactions from netizens on social media
Jane de Leon has finally been hailed as the new ‘Darna’ after Liza Soberano backed out from the film due to her finger injury.
It can also be recalled that Liza went to Los Angeles for the surgery of her fractured finger.
KAMI learned that following the news of Star Magic’s announcement regarding Jane, Liza revealed that she immediately messaged Jane about becoming the new 'Darna.'
According to Liza, "I'm so happy for Jane De Leon & Star Cinema. I believe she embodies everything Darna possesses. Beauty, brains, strength, empathy & kindness.
"I messaged her as soon as I found out & told her if ever she feels the weight of responsibility bestowed upon her she can always talk to me. I’m so excited for her career & to watch the movie! I can already feel Darna’s success."
Her message was shared by ABS-CBN’s entertainment journalist, MJ Felipe, on his social media account.
However, Liza's message garnered mixed reactions from netizens on social media.
Here are some of their comments from entertainment site Fashion Pulis.
"I love Liza Soberano talaga. Such pure heart. You can really feel her sincerity and without any bitterness. Never change, girl!"
"Love Liza S! Super sweet and kind. I hope for a better project for you."
"Very humble talaga si Liza."
"Hay Liz. Sayang na sayang talaga..."
"Hmmm..I think the best person to talk to are either Angel or Marian. Sila kasi yung lumipad talaga as Darna. I like Liza but she never really got the chance to wear darna’s suit. She may have undergone training but hindi talaga cya nakalipad. But I wish both girls well."
"Pls don't bash me but when it comes to the responsibility of the role ma's better to reach out to Angel or Marian. Lisa never really was darna. She did not take on the role fully although not her fault naman. Just saying."
As reported earlier by KAMI, Liza Soberano finally reacted to being replaced by Jane de Leon as new Darna.
Liza Soberano is considered as one of the most famous Kapamilya actresses. She became famous through her romantic projects with her real-life boyfriend Enrique Gil, such as “Dolce Amore” and “My Ex and Whys.”
