ABS-CBN and Star Cinema made a big announcement yesterday when they revealed that they've chosen 20-year-old actress Jane De Leon as the new Darna for the comics' latest film adaption. The rest of the movie's cast has yet to be announced, but it seems that auditions are already ongoing for some roles.
Earlier today, a casting call was posted for the role of young Narda. To qualify, you must be female and between 10 to 12 years old with prior acting experience. The two-day auditions will officially start tomorrow, from July 19 to July 20, at 1 p.m. 'til 6 p.m.

In her exclusive interview with Preview, Jane revealed that she initially auditioned for a villain character and not for the titular role of Darna. However, it was the film's writer and director Jerrold Tarog himself who encouraged her to audition for the lead role, which Jane successfully bagged. Who knows, maybe a talented young actress you know could be just as lucky!
