Before Darna, Jane de Leon is set to play the role of a boxer for ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’ episode
Kapamilya actress Jane de Leon does a challenging role as a boxer for the Maalaala Mo Kaya episode this Saturday, January 18.
Before showing herself in the iconic Darna costume and shout “Ding, ang bato!”, she will first portray the role of a boxer for the longest-running drama anthology. Jane’s popularity took a higher notch when she was named as the new Darna.
Fortunately for her, that stint opened new doors for her in the entertainment industry such as endorsements and TV appearances. Her recent TV stint is the MMK episode featuring the story of Pinay boxing champion Nesthy Petecio.
Based on the article from the Philippine Entertainment Portal, Nesthy was one of boxers who joined the 2019 AIBA Boxing World Championships. From that competition, she brought home a gold medal.
For the past two episodes of MMK, its rival Magpakailanman won the ratings. That created a thought if Jane could break that winning streak of the Kapuso show. The episode of the Kapamilya show this Saturday also features Bembol Roco, Michael Roy Jornales, Mara Lopez, and Kiara Takahashi.
Meanwhile, Magpakailanman will feature real-life couple Max Collins and Pancho Magno. They will play as Minda at Hector Bagulbagul, who were victimized by an online professional scammer.
This Saturday, the challenge is not just on Jane de Leon alone. It will be challenging also for Max and Pancho to maintain the higher ratings than the rival show. Based on the article, the Magpakailanman will also feature Dexter Doria at Liezel Lopez.
