Marian Rivera To Start Taping New Soap With Alden Richards As Leading Man

MARIAN RIVERA is all set to start taping her new soap for GMA-7. After tentative titles “Pinakamagandang Babae sa Balat ng Lupa” and “Ang Sekreto ni Milette”, its newest working title is “Katarina”, to be written by Suzette Doctolero and helmed by Dominic Zapata, the same team who did the much talked about hit “My Husband’s Lover”.

“I’m so excited about it,” says Marian. “Ito na raw ang pinaka-sexy pero pinakamadramang project na gagawin ko. I’m quite nervous about it but I trust GMA at alam kong hindi naman nila ako bibigyan ng project na hindi ko kakayaning gawin. Bale bagong challenge ito for me. Kagagaling ko nga sa Vietnam where it turned out, ang dami ko palang fans dahil sa soaps kong pinalalabas doon, at pati sila, inaabangan na rin what my next project will be after ‘Temptation of Wife’. Well, I’m happy to report na itong bago kong project will be worth the wait.”  Read also, Marian Rivera Super Sexy In Revealing Swimsuit Ginebra San Miguel Calendar Photos.

Alden Richards will be her leading man and he’s also very excited about it. “I’m really so proud na ako ang napiling kapareha ni Ms. Marian, pero siempre, kinakabahan din ako kasi it’s no joke na makatambal ang isa sa biggest stars in the industry,” says Alden. “I promise to do my very best and give my 101 percent in every scene para hindi naman ako mapahiya.”

This will be his next biggest role after playing Tisoy in “One True Love” as, let’s face it, in his last soap, “Mundo Mo’y Akin”, the more challenging role went to the ugly girl played by Louise de los Reyes.

Director Dominic Zapata says Alden will not just be a support to Marian as they will even have a hot love scene.

“Magiging very sensual ang dating nito, ng buong show,” he promises. “Marian will have plenty of daring and sensual scenes kasi very central to character that she plays ang provocative and erotic scenes na ipagagawa namin sa kanya, kaya abangan nyo dahil Marian has never been like this before.”
