The cast of “Darna” is now complete!

Janella Salvador was recently introduced as this generation’s Valentina, Darna’s main nemesis.


Recall that a few days ago JRB Creative Production teased about it on social media.

The post came a day after the show had their first taping day.

Who will play Valentina in 'Darna' series?

It was last month when ABS-CBN introduced the cast of “Darna: The TV Series.”

Among those sharing the screen with young star Jane de Leon (as Darna) are Joshua Garcia and Zaijian Jaranilla.

Zaijian will breathe new life into the character of Ding, the younger brother and sidekick of Darna/ Narda.

Joshua, a policeman and EMT named Brian, will be Narda’s love interest.

Meanwhile, as previously announced, Iza Calzado (Leonor) is taking on the role of the first Darna, who is expected to pass the magical stone to her daughter Narda.
