Although she would like to go back to teleseria, being away from home for long periods would be difficult, Marian Rivera said, because she has small children to take care of.
“It is difficult to say yes or no on the spot, because everything will depend on the situation or the protocols. If the registration is only for a few days, that’s fine. But if it’s a blocked month of recording, it would be hard for me, because my kids rely on me, “he said at a recent virtual conference for the fourth anniversary of” Tadhana, “a weekly drama anthology on GMA 7. .
Marian has two children by her husband, Dingdong Dantes – Aunt, 5, and Sixto, 2. “Aunt attends school. The Sixto stills remain with me. But maybe next year things will be smoother and we can think about how to deal with it, “said the 37-year-old actress from Kapuso.
Work with Bea, John Lloyd
But if the stars lined up and an opportunity presented itself, would she be willing to work with Bea Alonzo, who recently signed with GMA 7, and John Lloyd Cruz, who is set to do a blocking sitcom on the net? “Why not? Anyone who gets paired with me, I can’t wait to do it,” he said. “I’ll be super excited if that ever happens.”
As part of the fourth year celebration, “Tadhana” will present a special two-part episode on November 13 and 20, entitled “Sa Ngalan ng Ama”, starring Gabby Concepcion, Eula Valdes, Thea Tolentino and Ariella Arida. The second episode, “Kabayaran”, will air on November 27 and December 5. 4. Also, the show will give away a home and a lot to a lucky Filipino worker overseas.
“I’m glad we’re still here after four years. And I’m not surprised, because the stories we find are inspiring and give people hope. We have unique stories and are grateful to those who are willing to share them with viewers. One of the things I always see in our stories is that we Filipinos, despite the difficulties, will stand up and fight, “he said.
Right now, Marian is shooting her parts as a host for the show at home with Dingdong as the director.
“We have managed to create a scenario that will allow us to continue producing new episodes. They made Dong direct me because I was afraid of going out, especially during the peak of the pandemic. If it’s just me, I can do it. But I thought, ‘Can I go home and sit with my kids?’ I can’t stand the thought of my children taking [COVID-19], “She said.
Dingdong has nothing but support. “I asked him if it was okay for him to direct me and he said, ‘Sure, why won’t I do it for you?’” Says Marian. “We just make sure we manage our time well. Sometimes, my glam team helps with the camera. Tulung-tulong kami. Sometimes Zia comes by and acts as a clapper. “
Being stuck in the house allowed Marian to focus on raising her children. But he also recognized that going outside is crucial to their development.
“Children should explore, go to school and socialize with other children. But since they are unable to do this, we have to make do with what we have in the house. Let’s go to our little garden and ride a bike – kahit tatlong padyak lang! They play on the trampoline. Parenting is challenging, but if you love what you do, nothing is impossible, “she said.
But while she currently enjoys being a stay-at-home mom and entrepreneur, showbiz, Marian said, will always be in her blood. “I love to work. This won’t leave me, even when I’m old. Let’s wait, maybe when it will be safer. Babalik to babalik par rin, “he said.
