Sharon Cuneta commended the efforts of her fellow Darna stars in helping stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

In her Instagram account, Sharon posted her photo wearing the Darna costume, alongside a photo of Angel Locsin wearing her own Darna costume.

The Megastar also praised the relief efforts of Marian Rivera, Vilma Santos, and Regine Velasquez—other actresses who once gave life to the Pinay superheroine.

Judy Ann Santos has not portrayed Darna, but she did play the superheroine Krystala. Sharon took the time to cite the efforts of Juday to help those affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

The Instagram post showing Sharon and Angel in their Darna costumes had the caption: "Your two Darnas love you, our FRONTLINERS! Maraming salamat po! @therealangellocsin"

Sharon was one of the many celebrities who donated to the fundraiser #UniTENTWeStand spearheaded by Angel.

The funds were used to purchase 12×24-meter tents for overcrowded hospitals to be used by the medical frontliners and patients. Some of the tents were donated to the Bureau of Corrections at the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa City.

Sharon posted Regine's photo wearing the Darna costume, and praised her for pledging tents for the same tent drive.

The Megastar wrote: "At heto pa isang Darna! Ang kapatid ko, my NANA! Tatahi-tahimik lang yan pero may tents din siyang nabigay sa cause ni Darna Angel. At sinama pa si DING na itago na lang natin sa initials na Ogie Alcasid! Hahaha! Mabuhay ang mga DARNA!!! MABUHAY ANG FRONTLINERS!!! @reginevalcasid @ogiealcasid @cacaimitra"

Regine played Darna in the 2003 movie Captain Barbell.

Sharon took pride in how Marian provided good meals for those working tirelessly to end this pandemic.

In 2009, Marian top-billed the Kapuso remake of Darna.

Sharon pointed out that Vilma is also busy helping Filipinos even if she is not visible in newsfeeds

The Megastar paid tribute to the Star of All Seasons, writing:

"May mga nauna nang Darna sa kanya. Pero SIYA ang Darna na kinalakihan at minahal ko. Napakablessed ko lang minahal din niya ako! Di ko akalain maging artista rin ako at makilala at maging kaibigan ko ang isa sa pinaka-iidolo ko.

"Napakalayo mo man dalawin at makita ngayon Ate Vi ko (dahil matrapik! Pagdating ko sayo baka nakapagbirthday na ako ng dalawa!), ikaw ang orig kong Darna. I miss and love you, Ate!

"Alam ko busy ka sa pagtulong kahit di nakikita kasi ganun ka din eh! Please keep safe and healthy. God bless you and the family always! Hope to see you soon! #msvilmasantosrecto"

Vilma's first Darna movie was Lipad, Darna, Lipad! released in 1973. Vilma reprised her role in the following movies: Darna and the Giants (1973), Darna vs The Planet Women (1975), and Darna and Ding (1980).

Judy Ann was lauded for donating do-it-yourself (DIY) face shields to the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine and making home-cooked meals for frontliners.

Sharon wrote this about Juday: "at nagbubuhat ng kalderong giant, gumagawa naman ng acrylic masks! Mabuhay ka, KRYSTALA!!! @officialjuday"

Krystala, which aired in 2004, paved the way for Juday to work with Ryan Agoncillo, who is now her husband.
