Marian Rivera couldn’t hide her excitement at the presscon for her new show, the GMA-7 drama-action-fantasy series Super Ma’am.
After all, it had been seven years since the Kapuso network’s Primetime Queen played the iconic Pinay superhero Darna on TV. In Super Ma’am, she would be flying high anew as a crime-busting crusader.
“Ang daming kuwento kung ano ang gagawin kong soap,” Marian told the press. “Pero sabi nga nila, ito ang nararapat na akin… Nanay na ako. Parang double meaning nga [ ang title] kaya natuwa ako: Super Ma’am, Super Mom. Dahil sa anak ko, talagang masasabi ko na Super Nanay ako.”
Marian is mom to her and husband Dingdong Dantes’s panganay, Zia, who turns two on November 23.
“At siyempre, ang importante, ang moral values nitong Super Ma’am,” Marian added. “Sana lumawak ang pang-unawa ng mga estudyante sa kanilang mga guro—na dapat ang guro, pangalawang magulang at ’ginagalang, nirerespeto, at binibigyan ng puwang sa ating mga puso.”
Super Ma’am premiered on the Kapuso network a week after the presscon. Marian Rivera plays Minerva Henerala, a nerdy and kindhearted high school teacher who leads a secret life as a superheroine known as Super Ma’am. Director LA Madridejos (back row, second from left) led his actors at the press presentation. In photo with the director are a number of the cast members: (front row, L-R) Andrew Gan, Marika Sasaki, Vincent Magbanua, Isabelle de Leon, Kevin Santos, Jillian Ward, Julius Erasga, Ash Ortega, Enrico Cuenca, Shyr Valdez, Ashley Rivera, Ralph Noriega; (back row) Jerald Napoles, Direk LA, Al Tantay, Meg Imperial, Jackie Lou Blanco, Kim Domingo, Marian Rivera, Helen Gamboa, Matthias Rhoads, Joyce Ching, and Kristoffer Martin.
Lead actress Marian Rivera regards her castmates as family. “Sana mas maging matibay kami at maibigay namin ang maganda sa audience,” she said.
