We posted last June 2 that Angel Locsin will play the role of Marimar in GMA-7’s remake of the once popular telenovela.
Apparently, Angel declined to play the role because she thinks she can’t sing and dance well which the role requires. Nevertheless, it looks like GMA has already found the actress for the role and she’s Marian Rivera. She’s got a great body, sings and dances well. Marian also has Hispanic blood because her father is Spanish and she was born in Madrid, Spain. If all goes well, Marian will join the other cast: Dingdong Dantes as Sergio Santibañez, Richard Gomez as Renato Santibañez, and Bing Loyzaga as Angelica Santibañez. Marimar will be directed by Joyce Bernal and will premiere on July.
