Some people have questioned Anne Curtis’ suitability in playing the titular role of Dyesebel but they certainly don’t include Marian Rivera who donned the fins and shell brassiere of the mermaid character some years ago.
“Mabait siyang kaibigan and makikita niyo na nagpapalitan pa nga kami ng mga messages sa isa’t-isa sa Instagram so happy ako na si Anne ang gagawa niyan at wala akong nakikitang masama na maging Dyesebel siya,” Marian said at the contract signing of his latest endorsement on Tuesday.
Marian even pointed out that in show business, it is inevitable that a character is sometimes played by different actors. “Umiikot yan eh,” she quipped.
The Kapuso actress downplayed comparisons and the intrigues being sown between them. Marian even expressed gratitude that while they are signed to different networks, Anne complimented the former’s high-fashion photo shoot that came out on a magazine recently.
“Hindi man kami nagte-text-an o lumalabas na magkasama eh alam namin na magkaibigan kaming dalawa. Kahit na hindi ako taga-kanila (ABS-CBN), sa mga ganitong pagkakataon ay nawawala 'yung wall ng networks. Hindi naman masamang pumuri at magmahal ng iba kahit na hindi mo ka-network," Marian said.
Speaking of rival networks, rumors have it that Marian is being primed to play leading lady to a Kapamilya actor in a movie. However, the actress refused to say anything about it, believing that until contracts are signed, scripts are sent and cameras start grinding, it is best to keep one’s lips sealed on such matters.
