Despite not having that chance, Janella said that she hopes Cherie, wherever she is, will be proud of her portrayal. The younger actress also said that the late actress had a very powerful screen presence and her acting was superb and amazing when she portrayed Valentine.

Janella also said that this new Darna is the “woke version.” She said that aside from the modern flavor incorporated in the series, it also tackles social issues. The actress cited her lawyer/vlogger character whose vlogs talked about politics and the cases she is handling. “I will not be fighting with just Darna, but also with politicians because I’m against corruption,” Janella said.

Meanwhile, Janella Salvador mentioned also the physical transformation she went through for her showbiz comeback and her first project after her break. Since she gained weight, she underwent liposuction to help speed up her weight loss journey. After the surgery, she had to work out as soon as she was strong enough.
