Everyone loves a villain. They’re cunning, sensual, and very stylish. They may be hated on screen, but their legacies usually live on through the iconic performances of the stars who play them. One of the most recognizable villains on Filipino television is Darna’s Valentina. The role has been taken on by silver screen legends such as: Pilita Corrales, Alessandra de Rossi, Jodi Sta. Maria, Iwa Moto, and now Janella Salvador. Each of these stars have taken their own spin on the classic super villain. Throughout the series, Valentina counters Darna in all of her actions, whether in human form or as their superhuman counterpart.
It may be a shocker to most that on screen girl next door, Janella Salvador, took on the role. Nevertheless, we were sure the young actress is ready to take on iconic role in her own way. Here are 5 reasons why.
