Jane de Leon, the Kapamilya actress chosen to play the popular Pinoy comic superheroine Darna, is celebrating her birthday today, November 22.
She turned 21.
On Instagram, De Leon posted a throwback photo as she wrote a message to her past self.
"Dear Past Jane, You just entered an extremely tough industry girl! I know exactly what you’re feeling right now — the uncertainties, the insecurities and the constant fear of not knowing if you’ll ever get your big break. Life is tough, and I know it’s hard for you to commute with that bulky luggage of yours, from workshops to castings to shoots like you used to before. Naalala mo ba yung time where you had to run after a bus dahil alam mong you'd be late if you missed it? Kumusta naman yung mga panahong halos sa ABS ka na matulog dahil wala kang sapat na pera to head back home to Laguna after your workshop?" she wrote.
"And that one time you almost called it quits when things didnt work your way? You were always tired and exhausted and yet you didn’t give up. So I’m reminding you now NOT to give up; Huwag ngayon, because big things are about to happen. I promise!!! GOD has been so good and gracious to you. Be thankful always on all these blessings that have come your way. Magpasalamat ka lang lagi sa Panginoon at sa lahat ng naging parte ng journey mong ito. We’re almost there! Kaya AJA!!! Love,
Present Jane #21stBirthday."
On Thursday, Star Magic shared a video of the birthday surprise for De Leon organized by her family.
