marian rivera not fit for marimar? i did think so but now i don’t think so


i’ve recently heart, yet again, another tabloid columnist questioning marian rivera’s capability and star power to bring marimar to a constant success in terms of tv ratings. 

1.   SHE LOOKS TOO SPINTERISH.  i also thought so. oh the power of packaging. she doesn’t look so now.

all about MariMar…the pinoy version

(source: wikipedia)


MariMar is a Philippine drama airing on GMA Network starring Marian Rivera, in the title role,[1] and Dingdong Dantes. It is a remake of the Mexican telenovela with the same title starring Thalia which was aired in 1994. It starts on August 13, 2007 as part of GMA Network weeknights primetime presentation, under the direction of movie directors Joyce E. Bernal and Mac Alejandre. On this remake, much liberty had been taken to provide back story to the characters, tweaking and twisting some plot elements to avoid it being too predictable, and adapting it to Philippine setting.
