I’m just so excited to watch Marian Rivera, Glaiza de Castro, and Katrina Halili spar it out on telebabad soon. A bisexual role for Primetime Queen Marian is in my opinion her most challenging TV role, thus far. Amaya was very physical and Marian literally gave blood and sweat for the first EPICserye on TV but I can imagine playing a bisexual in a very conservative Catholic country is even harder in terms of people’s sensibilities and personal beliefs.
I am very confident that Marian will pull it off with flying colors. I know some people have a problem with this role because they just couldn’t imagine Marian delving into such a character but I applaud and so proud of her for taking on this challenge. These are the moments in an actor’s career when a thespian asks what other roles I could bring into life to challenge myself. Marian has played all the boxed-in characters she could possibly play since she joined showbiz. Now is the time for her to step out of that box.
