Marian Rivera Starts Taping Darna Today

MARIAN RIVERA is going to start taping today her upcoming fantaserye "Darna". Marian is very excited to wear the custume of Darna and she doesn't mind any pressure even intrigues of comparing her with Angel Locsin.

It can be noted that Angel once portrayed the role of Darna when she was still in the Kapuso network. "Darna" with Angel was a huge success and this will be a pressure to take not only by Marian but also the whole cast and staff of the new "Darna". Angel's "Darna" was consistent in the ratings and it stayed in the top spot during its airtime.

But Marian is quick to say she doesn't mind what other people are saying and she doesn't think of the pressure set unto them. She says they are going to do their best to make the new Darna appealing to the viewing public and even try to surpass the success of Angel's Darna.

Marian is also thankful to Angel saying Angel even congratulated her in her portrayal of the role. "Hindi kamimagkagalit na dalawa. Kinongratulate nga niya ako sa kanyang interview," Marian said.

There are also rumors that Marian didn't approved the inclusion of Katrina Halili in the cast. But Marian denied the rumors and even stressed Katrina made a big role in the success of "Marimar" with Dingdong Dantes. "Bakit ko naman po tatanggihan ang isang artista na makakatulong para maging successful ang isang proyekto?" Marian said in an interview.

Marian is joined by Nadine Samonte as Babing Tuod, Iwa Moto as Babaing Ahas and Krissa Mae as Babaing Linta.

Marian also laughs when asked about her custume that other described it as "super sexy". Marian said the custume is not yet finished and they are still finalizing the details in it.

Darna is set to be aired in August.
