Even before I joined showbiz, I was already aware that I will have to experience bashing, even though I’m very conscious of what I say and do in public,” she defined.
During her debut within the collection final week, Jane was seen as Lia, a sniper of the Black Ops unit tasked to kill Cardo. Lia’s staff manages to trace down Cardo and his group, Task Force Agila, and cornered them at a firing vary. The state of affairs forces Cardo to give up.

Although I’ve not seen him actually get offended on the set.
“He really took time to know me. He’s too kind. Sobrang tutok niya, especially when I had to go up the roof to shoot for my scenes. I felt so grateful to him, that at one point, I also wanted to offer him a glass of water,” she mentioned, laughing.

The new “Darna” undertaking will likely be “very modern,” in response to Jane. “We will see there whatever [technology] we have at the moment. Darna is very millennial. That’s how she will be introduced in the story.”
Jane additionally claimed to nonetheless not know who will play Valentina, Darna’s archnemesis, though speak is powerful that it will be Janine Gutierrez, who transferred to the Kapamilya community not too long ago. “I’d be really happy for her if she’d agree to do it.
