Newcomer Matthias Rhoads Ecstatic To Be The Leading Man Of Marian Rivera In New GMA-7's Primetime Show, 'Super Ma'am'

MATTHIAS RHOADS feels so lucky to be chosen by GMA-7 as the leading man of Marian Rivera in her new primetime show, “Super Ma’am”. Matthias was first noticed when he appeared as the prospective groom in a Jollibee TV commercial. He was then introduced by GMA-7 as one of the JEYA Boys in “Meant to Be”. And now, he gets launched as Marian’s love interest no less.

“At first, I was really intimidated,” he says. “I just get stunned when I look at her because she’s not only very beautiful but she also acts great. They tell me nga, why are you tulala? But she turned out to be very warm and friendly. She’s been doing this for a long time and she’s ready to help newcomers like me. She gives me valuable acting tips and for that, I will forever be grateful to this super sweet, super ganda, super galing na leading lady.”

Marian says Matthias learns easily. “Okay naman siyang turuan kasi may willingness to siya to learn para mas gumaling siya bilang aktor,” she says. “Noong una, halatang nahihiya pa siya kaya biniro kong turuan niya ako ng English at ako naman ang magtuturo sa kanya ng Tagalog para mas ma-relax siya.”

Matthias freely praised Marian in his social media account and he got the surprise of his life when some fans quickly bashed him because of this, telling him: “Feelingero ka. Mahiya ka naman kay Dingdong Dantes. Huwag kang umastang bida ka dahil STARLET ka pa rin.”

But some fans of Marian defended him, saying: “There’s nothing wrong with the posts of Matthias dahil na-appreciate lang niya ang pagiging mabait ni Yanyan sa kanya. Walang masama roon and he does not deserved such negative bashings.”

Well, let’s just say that Matthias is getting his usual baptism of fire in showbiz. “Super Ma’am” will start airing on September 18 to replace “Mulawin vs. Ravena”.
