Jane de Leon had her long hair chopped off into a short bob before she takes on the role of the new Darna.
Aside from Darna, Jane will also be playing Narda, Darna's alter-ego, in the Kapamilya network's upcoming TV remake of the popular comic-book character by Mars Ravelo.
On Monday, November 29, 2021, the 23-year-old Kapamilya actress debuted her new hairstyle via Instagram.
For her caption, Jane wrote, "Cutting my hair for a role? [emoji] Definitely did it! [emoji] #NEWLOOK #ShortHair"
Jane's Darna: The TV Series co-stars Janella Salvador and Iza Calzado loved her new look for the show.
Janella, who will be playing Darna's arch-nemesis Valentina, told the actress, "Short hair suits you! [emoji"
Iza, who was cast to play as the first Darna, commented, "Love!!! [emoji]"
Other celebrities and social-media personalities also gave Jane's new look a nod. Among them were Janica Nam, Emmanuelle Vera, Bubbles Paraiso, Hero Angeles, and Maureen Wroblewitz.
Darna: The TV Series is expected to be released in 2022, eight years after ABS-CBN received the rights for Mars Ravelo's iconic superheroine character.
