Is it true that Joshua Garcia and Jane de Leon are working together in Darna?
From the initial plan of doing a movie about the iconic Pinay superhero, Darna was decided to be a TV series, for now, due to the pandemic. It is known to many showbiz fans who anticipated this project to happen that it went through a lot of hurdles.
Now that ABS-CBN is pushing it to be a TV series, the leading man is still unnamed. Based on the article in Bandera, speculation surfaced that Joshua Garcia might be playing the lead male character.
During the Star Magic Workshops for 2021 virtual press conference, director Rahyan Carlos sort of had a slip of the tongue. He reminisced the time when Joshua was uninterested in doing workshops from the time he went out from the Pinoy Big Brother house.
Because of this attitude towards doing workshops, the director reprimanded the young actor. “Ang sabi ko lang sa kanya, ‘if you’re not gonna be diligent in attending the workshop and doing assignments and doing rehearsals, walang mangyayari sa ‘yo,” direk Rahyan shared.
With that, Joshua started to be diligent in attending workshop and the result can be seen on how he portrayed his roles in various movie and TV projects.
“Hanggang sa mamayang konti, nag-attend siya nang nag-attend ng workshop. Humusay nang humusay, hanggang naging ‘ibang klase ka ah.’ Tapos ngayon, siya na ‘yung nag-a-ask ng workshop,” the director added.
Indeed, Joshua Garcia is now considering acting workshops as a foundation of his career when doing certain projects. Then, direk Rahyan revealed that recently, the young actor approached him to have a one-on-one workshop with him.
“Sabi niya, ‘Direk mayroon akong role.’ I’m talking about Joshua Garcia. ‘Direk mayroon ako ngayon for Darna, pwede bang mag-one-on-one workshop sa ‘yo?’ Wow, ikaw na nag-a-ask sa akin ng workshop ha,” the director said.
Does this mean that Joshua will be the leading man of Jane in Darna?
