It was announced on Friday, through the #TheValentinaReveal that streamed live on ABS-CBN Entertainment YouTube channel and Facebook page, that the Kapamilya star will play the serpent queen.

It can be noted that Janella’s character, who is known to have venomous snakes for her hair, is the nemesis of Darna.

During the event, the star explained why she looked up to Valentina’s character.

“I like her because she’s smart, she’s an intellectual. Kaya na-in love ako sa role na ito because she actually does have a good heart, hindi lang nagagamit sa tamang paraan. So abangan niyo na lang kung paano ‘yon,” said Salvador who admitted that she did not expect to get the role.

“Siguro aabangan niyo, mapapamahal din kayo kay Valentina. Hindi niyo ini-expect pero mapapamahal kayo sa kanya. Like I said she has a good heart. Tama ‘yung pinaglalaban niya sa buhay. Pero siyempre may pitik din tayo minsan. So abangan niyo ‘yon,” Janella added.

Janella also stressed how thrilled she was to be part of this project. “It’s a very exciting thing for me kasi it’s a gray role. It’s more of a dark character. Sobra akong excited na laruin siya and to get to know who she really is,” Salvador said of Valentina.

She was handpicked by the show’s director, Chito S. Roño, amongst a plethora of artists who auditioned for the role. 

This marks Janella’s TV comeback as she took a break from showbiz to focus on being a mother to her son Jude. She was last seen in the thriller series The Killer Bride as Emma Bonaobra.
