MARIMAR Pinoy Version

One of the things that occupy my days is watching Filipino shows both TFC and Pinoy TV. We've subscribed to the Filipino Channel last December 'coz hubby thought this is one way to help me cope with my boredom and homesickness. I must admit that I am a TV addict and I keep up with what has been happening in the Philippine entertainment industry. Of course, there's Philippine Entertainment Portal website that I regularly visit but I still craved watching shows on TV especially the telenovelas. The GMA-7 Pinoy version of Marimar is on top of my list. I vaguely remember the original Mexican version wayback in college so despite the fact that this show is a remake, I still enjoy this a lot. The pinoy version has its own twists of the story and I definitely like the fresh face of the female lead, Marian Rivera.

I've seen her past movies and I already find her pretty and talented then but I never thought that she'd make it big on the primetime shows of GMA but a very good break came in her way through Marimar and currently Marian Rivera is a household word. Marian has captured the hearts of the filipinos with her innocent smiles, mestiza looks, well-trimmed figure and topnotch acting. The role of Marimar seemed to be tailored-fit for this stunning girl. I can't afford to miss an episode especially now that it will finally make a graceful exit from the airwaves a few weeks from now. There has been talks that she will reprise the role of Dyesebel on her next fantaserye show on GMA. Wow, way to go, Marian!!!
