Marian Rivera is going to be a part of the sequel of Sen. Bong Revilla's "Ang Panday". Marian will be playing the role of Arlana and is among the leading ladies of the actor-senator in the Manila Film Fest entry who also include Iza Calzado and Rhian Ramos.
In an interview with 24 Oras, Sen. Revilla said that the role was "tailor-made" for Marian, that the Panday 2 will not be complete without her.
Meanwhile in another interview, Marian Rivera said she can't believe she's doing the role since she has a very hectic schedule:
"Hindi ko rin kasi akalaing magagawa ko ito dahil sa dami ng shedule ko. Na-touch lang ako kay Kuya Bong, kasi, nu’ng nagkita kami ni Ate Lani, nag-text pa siya na sinabi nga niyang huwag daw akong mag-alala dahil alagaan ako rito. Nakaka-touch naman dahil eto nga talagang alagang-alaga ako dito.”
Here's a first look of Marian role in "Ang Panday: Ikalawang Yugto". Check out Panday 2's Behind-the-scenes photos with Marian Rivera below:
