ROSA DEL ROSARIO
Rosa del Rosario whose real name was Rose del Rosario Stagner was born in 1916. Her father was an American and the mother was from Pampanga. Her film debut was in Ligaw na Bulaklak as the child of Carlos Padilla, the father of Carlos Padilla, Jr. This was followed with Satanas.
She was one of the most popular actresses during the Golden Age, tucking over 60 movies to her credit. But it was her live-action portrayal of the Filipina superheroine Darna in 1951 that made her and the character both a household name. The first Darna movie was produced and directed by Fernando Poe Sr. under Royal Films.A faithful adapatation of the komiks serial, the production brought in hundreds of live snakes and eels for the movie. Del Rosario even had to be hung from a helicopter to create special effects for Darna’s flying scenes.
She also appeared in Border Bandits and Anna and the King, two Hollywood movies.
She migrated to the United States and died recently.
