Marian Rivera relishes the idea that she will continue to bring life to a warrior princess for much longer.
The GMA-7 actress recalls the announcement made by management regarding Amaya, her primetime series set during the pre-colonial times.
"Actually, dapat ang Amaya hanggang October lang tapos na-extend kami ng November. Then last, last week, sinabi nila na hanggang January na. So naka-dalawang extension siya. Ang saya ng Pasko kasi may trabaho," Marian told PEP.ph in a recent interview.
"Lahat nga kami pinagdadasal na sana hanggang December para pag dumaan ang Christmas, lahat masaya. Nung in-announce na hanggang January, parang fiesta, ang saya-saya! Parang hindi muna nag-taping ng isang oras, nagdaldalan muna."
Last week, Mikael Daez's character named Lumad was killed off from Amaya. Aljur Abrenica will soon be introduced as Dayaw, the new leading man of Marian in GMA-7's epicserye.
The actor was supposed to be seen on GMA-7's epicserye last Tuesday, September 29, but due to the bad weather brought about by Typhoon Pedring, the plot of the show was modified. Aljur will reportedly appear on the October 4 episode of Amaya.
Marian said that she doesn't have problems working with Aljur because they already worked with each other for the fantaserye Dyesebel and the movie Temptation Island.
Aside from Aljur, there will also be another female character who will soon join the cast of Amaya.
NEW SITCOM. Marian is also excited about her upcoming project on GMA-7: topbilling her own comedy series.
"Meron akong sitcom, yung papalit sa Show Me Da Manny. Inaayos pa pero sariling sitcom ko na," she said with a smile.
