THE EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL MARIAN RIVERA RADIATES WITH HER SIMPLE, WARM, AND FUN-LOVING PERSONALITY. The very in demand My Beloved star candidly shares some interesting facts about her life as an actress and as a regular girl.
Read on and find out what makes her shine even when she’s away from the spotlight.
What’s keeping you preoccupied these days?
I have tapings for our soap opera, My Beloved, and I have some pictorials.
Let’s talk about My Beloved. What role do you play?
‘Yung My Beloved siguro yung soap na mabait ako pero hindi ako api-apihan. Lahat kasi ng dating soap ko api-apihan ako, mabait, ‘yung hindi lumalaban. In My Beloved, aware ako na inaapi ako, pero I know how to stand up for myself. Yung character ko dito masarap paglaruan.
Medyo kakaiba itong character ko dito at ngayon lang kami nagsama ni Dong (Dingdong Dantes) na ako yung mortal. Palagi kasing ako yung immortal eh. Ako lagi yung may kapangyarihan
When was the last time you worked with Dingdong?
Endless Love yung last naming ginawa na magkasama. It’s been more than a year na di kami nagsama sa project so maraming nagbago, maraming adjustment, atsaka marami kaming na-discover pa.
Do you still have a dream role?
A lot! At marami pa rin akong gustong makatrabahong artista. Hindi pa ako nagbabaliw-baliwan, hindi pa ako nagiging lalaki, mga ganung klase.
