Janella Salvador Recalls Challenges of Lock-In Taping and Being Away from Son Jude

First-time mom Janella Salvador recently revealed her struggles about being away from her son Jude while taping Darna.

Janella Salvador recently admitted that it was challenging to be away from her son Jude while doing Mars Ravelo’s Darna during the lock-in taping for the show.

Speaking to reporters after the media conference of the show on Monday, August 8, Janella said: “Challenge talaga siya kasi I really have to make a sacrifice. Kapag naka-locked-in taping kami, hindi ko masyado nakikita si Jude. That’s the hardest part of it. Pero iniisip ko na lang na para din sa kanya ito.”

Janella added that her priorities right now is all about her son’s well-being. “Mas na-inspire ako to work hard kasi nga meron na akong anak; hindi ko lang ginagawa ito para sa sarili ko kung ‘di para din kay Jude.”

As for reports that she and Jude’s father Markus Paterson have separated, Janella answered that they are okay. “We are both happy as individuals. And our main priority is Jude.”

Returning to work

Janella and Markus welcomed Jude back in October 2020. However, they only introduced him to the public in January 2021. After returning from the UK, both Janella and Markus started getting themselves ready for the projects that they have been offered.

Moreover, Janella has since been announced as Valentina/Regina in Darna opposite Jane de Leon. The show will premiere on television this August 15 and will replace FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
