Jane De Leon was caught on video giving her take on Darna's iconic shout in front of ABS-CBN's big bosses.

If Jane de Leon, the little-known actress who had just been cast as Darna, were to come across a friend following the news, she would probably be teased into demonstrating the superhero's iconic shout.

It is, of course, often what many use as a gauge to see if an actress does fit the role or not --and there's little doubt that De Leon is going to be judged any differently.

And while the quality's a bit on the low side, fans did get to hear her shout "Darna!" for the first time in a video going around this Friday.

It shows De Leon right after finding out that she had gotten the role, being asked to give her take on it in front of ABS-CBN's big bosses, including president and CEO Carlo Katigbak.

According to Jerrold Tarog, who will be directing the "Darna" movie to be top-billed by De Leon, the young actress was a "unanimous" choice. He said that the management wanted a new face to take on the task of reintroducing Darna to a new generation.

Prior to landing the high-profile role, De Leon was best known for her supporting part in the hit primetime series "Halik."
