She may not be able to run faster than a speeding bullet nor fly like an eagle, but Marian Rivera excels in other ways

Motherhood continues to change Marian Rivera’s perspective in many ways.

For one, she is now more selective when it comes to accepting projects.

The actress prefers child-friendly roles that espouse sound moral values.

In a one-on-one interview with Bulletin Entertainment, she revealed her family, particularly daughter Zia, played a big factor in her decision.

“Nanay ako eh,” she said. “Alam ng lahat kung gaano ako ka-dedicated sa anak ko, so gusto ko ’yung mga palabas na gagawin ko kayang panuorin ng anak ko at paglaki niya pwedeng niyang sabihin na ‘Ay, ginawa ng mama ko ’to.’”

Marian has indeed embraced motherhood. What’s more important to her is to help educate audiences through her shows.
“Graduate na ako sa mga medyo sexy roles na iyan. Basta ang gusto ko na sana ngayon, show na makapapagbigay, na makakapagturo ng mahalagang aral sa mga kabataan natin ngayon.”

Teacher Marian?

Before becoming an actress, Marian dreamed of being a teacher.

Asked what type she would have been, she said “siguro someone na medyo strict.”

“Medyo strict din kasi ako sa anak ko eh. At tsaka ang paniniwala ko, ’pag mali, mali – at ang mali hindi mo pwedeng gawing tama,” she shared.

“Pero siyempre hindi ako mamamalo, ibang way ng pagdidisiplina ang gagawin ko.”

That dream will come true somehow with her playing one via the upcoming GMA series “Super Ma’am.” She takes on the role of Minerva Henerala, a high school teacher often teased and pranked by students because of her eccentric personality.

Marian hopes the show will serve as an eye-opener to the youth, especially to students who take teachers for granted.

“Dapat ang mga estudyante marunong silang rumespeto ng mga teacher nila at dapat makita nila kung ano ’yung sacrifice ng mga teachers para lang matuto sila,” she shared. “Maganda ’to na mapanuod ng mga kabataan dahil may magandang kwento. Minsan kasi ang mga estudyante ngayon, pumapasok lang sa school. Hindi nila na-a-appreciate ang ginagawa ng mga teachers nila para sa kanila.”

Return

“Super Ma’am” serves as a comeback show for Marian. It has been two years since she did a teleserye.

The actress maintained, “Ito ulit ’yung pagkakataon para i-share ko ulit ’yung bagong trabaho ko, bagong soap sa mga taong naghihintay sa akin lalo na ngayon lang magso-soap opera na literal na fantasy.”

In playing a superheroine again (she played “Darna” in 2009), the actress underwent training for her fight scenes.
“Sobrang na-miss kong makipag-fight scenes,” she enthused. “Ni-refresh at binalikan ko ulit ’yung mga kinalawang na fight scenes ko noon.”

No pressure

At this point in her career, Marian said ratings are not an issue for her anymore.

She is not pressured even given the fact that “Super Ma’am” will be replacing the hit telefantasya “Mulawin Vs. Ravena.”

“Oo mahalaga sa network ang ratings pero para sa akin ang mahalaga du’n eh, ginawa mo ang lahat, binigay mo ’yung 100 percent mo at may moral values na matututunan ang mga manunuod sayo. At kayo sa likod ng camera, kung paano kayo magtrabaho sa isat-isa, ’yun ang pinaka-mahalaga,” she explained.

Marian aims to deliver an engaging show.

“Basta ako, gagawin ko ang trabaho ko. Salamat sa oportunidad, salamat dahil alam ko na ’tong trabaho na’to ay malaki ang maitutulong sa akin at sa pamilya ko at sa ibang tao. Kung may pressure man, ito ay ang pagandahin ang show.”

“Super Ma’am” starts airing on Sept. 18

Quality time with fam

With husband Dingdong Dantes also busy with “Alyas Robin Hood,” it looks like the couple will lord it over the primetime slot, we teased Marian.

“Well, sobrang blessed lang talaga siguro,” she said, smiling.

Aside from her upcoming soap opera, Marian is seen on “Tadhana” and “Sunday PinaSaya (SPS).” She also plans to do a movie this year.

Despite her busy schedule, Marian said she makes sure to spend enough time with her family.

“Actually hindi ko rin naman pinagsasabay-sabay eh. Kapag may soap, soap lang. Buti na lang ’yung ‘SPS’ every Sunday lang, tapos ang ‘Tadhana,’ twice a month lang kami nagte-taping,” she shared.

“’Pag nasa work kami, minsan mama ko o mama ni Dong ang nag-aalaga (kay Zia). Pero ayoko din pagsabayin (lahat) ng work ko kasi wawa naman ’yung anak ko kung may soap na ako, may movie pa ako. Baka (naman) i-who you na ako ng anak ko,” she added.

The couple recently went to France to attend Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho’s wedding. Zia served as one of the flower girls.

“Nakakatuwa kasi nakalakad siya (sa aisle) ng mag-isa,” Marian enthused.

Of course, Marian and Zia did their traditional “Ay! May daga” pose, which garnered thousands of likes on Instagram.

“Siyempre hindi mawawala ’yun ’di ba? Medyo short lang din ’yung stay namin sa France, sumegue lang kami ng konting pasyal sa park, bonding ng konti,” Marian said.

Helping hand

Marian is one of many actresses who make it a point to help other people.

“Since day one naman ganu’n talaga ang ginagawa ko at hindi mawawalan ng puwang sa puso ko ang tumulong sa ibang tao,” she said.

Marian believes being a celebrity is not about fortune and fame. Her utmost goal is to be able to share all the blessing she has been continuously receiving.

“Ang pagiging celebrity, hindi lang naman pagiging artista, na sikat ka, kilala ka, may trabaho ka. Ano ’yung sense ng mga ’yun, kung ’yung nakukuha mong benepisyo sa pagiging artista ay hindi mo na-e-extend sa ibang tao?”
