Joined by GMA Network Chairman and CEO Felipe Gozon, President and COO Gilberto Duavit, SVP for Entertainment Lilybeth Rasonabl, TV and music director Mike Tuviera, Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera renewed her contract with GMA.
“Malaki ang pasasalamat ko sa GMA dahil sobrang sobra ‘yong tiwala nila sa ‘kin after all, nagpakasal, nagkaanak, and then binibigyan pa rin ako ng magandang proyekto, and of course looking forward ako sa mga gagawin ko this year,” the Kapuso Primetime Queen said.
[I am deeply grateful to GMA because they have so much trust in me after all. I’ve been married, I had a kid, but they still gave me a good project. And of course I’m looking forward to the projects I will do this year.]
Marian said she could not imagine herself signing with any other network except GMA, adding the network has helped her form relationships and build a career.
“Dito talaga ako sa GMA, at parang hindi ko lubos maisip ang sarili ko na nasa iba. Pag-ibig, career, mga kaibigan, so very thankful talaga sa GMA,” she said.
[I really belong in GMA. I can’t see myself anywhere else. Love, career, friends, I’m really thankful to GMA.]
She mentioned that her network never failed to consult her first before proceeding with their plans for the actress.
“Sa GMA kasi, sa tuwing may bibigay silang project lagi nilang hinuhulma para sa ‘kin, palagi silang nandiyan para, ‘O Marian gusto mo bang gawin ‘to, ‘eto ang gusto namin para sa ‘yo’. Hindi sila nauubusan sa ‘kin ng ganon, so sobra sobra talaga ang pasasalamat ko na talagang ganyan nila akong mahalin,” Marian said.
When GMA gives me a project, they make sure it suits me. They always sya, “Marian, do you want to do this? We wish you’d do this.” They never really run out of offers and I am eternally grateful that they love me like that.]
Meanwhile, Gozon only had praises for Marian who has been the network’s prime artists since she played Marimar in 2007.
“Napakaraming salamat kay Marian at kami talagang natutuwa na napili nanaman niya tayo to renew her contract, sapagkat siguro alam na ng lahat and I don’t think there will ever be a disagreement kay Marian, isa sa pinakamaganda, at pinakamagaling na artista sa Pilipinas ngayon.
[We are grateful for Marian because she always renews her contract with us. Perhaps everyone knows that we don’t have any disagreement with Marian – one of the most beautiful and most brilliant actresses in the country today.]
“Kung hindi siya ang pinakamagaling, yung pinakamaganda talagang di na natin kailangan pagbotohan ‘yan kaya nagagalak kami na kasama na naman, at tsaka sa tingin ko malayo pa ang mararating ni Marian, at talagang tutulungan natin siyang marating ang sukdulan ng kanyang career,” Gozon said.
[If she isn’t the best, at least the most beautiful is undisputable. We are happy that she’s with us again. We know that Marian will go far and we will help her reach the peak of her career.]
Rasonable agreed with Gozon tagging Marian as one of the best actresses of her time, saying the entertainment team is looking forward to continue producing more projects with the actress.
“Siyempre kasi sabi nga ni FLG she is one of the best actresses today, so siyempre itutuloy natin ‘yung pagagawa niya ng mga makabuluhang drama, nanalo na siya ng awards before eh sa acting, so kailangan i-continue natin ‘yan and of course she still has her hosting, she also won an award for that at siyempre ituloy niya ‘yung ginagawa niya for news and public affairs na drama anthology,” Rasonable said.
[Of course just like what FLG said, she is one of the best actresses today. So we want to give her good projects. She has won awards for acting before and we want to continue that. Also her hosting, she’s won an award for it. We want her to continue what she’s doing for news and public affairs which is the drama anthology.]
Meanwhile, Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin commented on Marian Rivera’s photo.
She said, “Congrats yan” to which Marian replied with a kiss emoticon.
