#valentina’s snakes seem to individually have voices, and her snake tendrils are not earth serpents. #darna #darnathetvseries #darnavalentina pic.twitter.com/Kdc5T6B0bk

During the media conference for the Darna TV series on Tuesday, August 9, Salvador admitted she had second thoughts about accepting the role of Valentina.
“Noong unang in-offer siya sa akin, actually, nagdalawang-isip ako. I wasn’t sure if it was the right decision, and if it is where I wanted to go.”
Several actresses have already breathed into the supervillain, including Cristina Aragon, Celia Rodriguez, Melissa Perez Rubio, Pilar Pilapil, Pilita Corrales, Alessandra de Rossi, and Iwa Moto.
