MANILA — Going by the top Google queries in the Philippines in 2019, many Filipinos wanted to learn more about Jane de Leon — who emerged as the most searched female celebrity of the year — following her announcement as the new “Darna” actress.
But given that de Leon is a showbiz newcomer, there’s still much to find out about the former “Halik” star.
Her talent in dancing, for one, was a pleasant surprise as she took the “ASAP Natin ‘To” stage last Sunday with a sultry performance.
De Leon, a former member of the dance group GirlTrends, reminded viewers of that background as she performed to the tune of “Señorita.”
The number also gave a glimpse of de Leon’s “Darna” physique — the result of months of training for the physical demands of the iconic superhero role.
