Is Marian Rivera willing to star as Dingdong Dantes’ leading lady in Descendants of the Sun?By JANNIELYN ANN BIGTAS,GMA News
At the renewal of her partnership with Kultura on Tuesday, Marian Rivera was asked if she is willing to star alongside with her husband Dingdong Dantes in the Filipino adaptation of the K-drama series "Descendants of the Sun."
According to Marian, she and Dong have actually talked about it but “to be honest, priority ko talagang alagaan si Ziggy. Mahirap para sa akin na iwan si Ziggy tapos mag-soap,” Marian told the press at the event.
For now, the Kapuso Primetime Queen said she has several endorsements to honor before going back to her shows in GMA.
“Endorsements muna ako. Tapos niyan, babalik ako unti-unti sa Tadhana tapos sa Sunday Pinasaya,” she said.
When asked if she would be willing to star with Dingdong on DOTS, she said “sa soap no ako ngayon. Pero malay after two months mag-yes ako so tignan ko.”
Marian's priority, she said, is to take care of her second son Baby Ziggy.
“Ako yung tipo ng nanay na hands-on. Kasi ayoko pagsisihan na wala ako doon habang lumalaki sila,” she said.
“Sabi ko nga kung tatanungin mo ko sa punto na ‘to I will say no talaga pero malay mo naman kung nilapitan ‘yung location,” she added.
She said it’s hard for her to choose since she is still busy taking care of her newborn Baby Ziggy.
“Ang hirap mamili kasi may newborn ako two months pa lang although baka naman pag na-adjust sabi ko nga ang hirap ng magsabi ng yes kaya ko hindi naman pala hindi naman binigay sakin ‘yon di naman sinabi na oo ikaw ‘to,” she said.
Marian shared that fans have been tagging her on videos of DOTS and that they have been telling her that she and Korean actor Song Hye-kyo have similarities.
“Sabi nila maganda yung kwento tapos nagkatuluyuan sila tapos yung babae may similarity daw sakin,” she added.
Marian’s renewal event with Kultura is her first public appearance after giving birth to her second son Baby Ziggy last April.
Dingdong will be starring in the Filipino adaptation of DOTS with Kapuso actors Rocco Nacino and Jasmine Curtis. His leading lady for the show is yet to be announced. — LA, GMA News
