Kapuso Primetime King and Queen Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes are now both busy with series of their own. Marian stars in the newest fanstasy action-comedy of GMA, Super Ma’am. Dingdong, on the other hand, is leading the book two of his series Alyas: Robin Hood.
In the timeslot, the two shows of the power couple also go back to back.
But Dingdong said that whenever they have time, they really make the most of it.
He said that all they think is that this time and schedule is not permanent. They’re very busy because this is just one of their many projects. They make sure to remember that they’re doing it for their little girl Zia who is turning two this November.
He was also appreciative of the support that GMA gives them. They work together with the management team to work out a schedule wherein they can still take care of Zia.
Malaking bagay talaga yung may management sa oras.
“Halimbawa, ang trabaho niya [Marian] ay M-W-F, kami rito ay T-Th-S.
“Mapalad kami na, yung GMA, na-consider nila yun.
“Sa kanila, mahalaga rin ang family.
“Naiisip din nila na, siyempre, kailangan may maiiwan din sa bahay. [Time management is important. For example, Marian works M-W-F and I work T-Th-S. We are lucky that GMA considers that. They also value family. They also know that one of us has to stay at home.]”
Dingdong also shared that it seems the trend now is shows about super heroes as both his and his wife’s series are about saving the world.
What can he say about Marian’s action scenes on her show?
Dingdong said he always tells Marian to be careful. He’s afraid she’d come home with broken bones, etc. He said Marian is a Super Mom first before a Super Ma’am.
Zia also knows the characters that her parents play.
According to Dingdong, “Sinasabi namin na ‘yan si Robin Hood, ‘yan si Super Ma’am.
“Kapag nakakakita siya ng kulot, alam niya Super Ma’am.
“Kapag nakakakita siya ng pana, alam niya Robin Hood. [We tell her that this is Robin Hood, this is Super Ma’am When she sees it’s someone curly, she knows it’s Super Ma’am. When she sees an arrow, she knows it’s Robin Hood].”
