Janella Salvador is set to star in the highly-anticipated television adaptation of Mars Ravelo’s popular comic book series, “Darna.” The actress will be taking on the role of the superhero’s archenemy, Valentina, in “Mars Ravelo’s Darna: The TV Series.” The character of Valentina is a serpent queen – known for having venomous snakes on her head – and is hiding behind her human alter-ego who is a lawyer/vlogger named Regina. In a reveal video hosted by Darna herself, Jane De Leon, Janella shared regarding the role: “First of all, I am very, very honored to be chosen among the many actresses who auditioned for this role. I am sure they are equally as amazing and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Chito Roño and ABS-CBN for giving me the opportunity to portray this iconic role. I promise to live up to everyone’s expectations but also make it my own. I like her becuase she’s smart, she’s an intellectual. That’s why I fell in love with this role because she actually does have a good heart, she just doesn’t use it for the right reasons. She please just stay tuned to see what happens.” The role of Valentina will be Janella’s first time to play an antagonist, as she is known to play sweet and innocent lead characters such as her last drama, “The Killer Bride” that wrapped in 2020.
