Maria Rivera's pregnancy has not been that much of a deterrent to her work.
So far, she still gets to work for her regular Kapuso shows, Sunday PinaSaya and Tadhana.
However, movies are a no-no for now.
At the renewal of her contract as Nailandia Nail Salon and Body Spa, Marian revealed that she was supposed to do a horror film, but it was shelved because of her pregnancy.
“Siyempre, hindi ko masabi sa inyo noon.
“Hindi ko masabi sa inyo na kaya hindi ko rin siya magawa kasi, nalaman ko na buntis na ko noon.
“So kinausap ko ang Triple A na hindi ko siya magagawa kasi, sobrang harsh ng pelikulang yun.
“Hindi advisable para sa buntis na tulad ko na gawin ang ganung klase ng pelikula.”
She revealed that a look test and presscon had been scheduled then canceled.
“May look test na nga kami, may presscon na, na-cancel lahat. E, thankful din ako sa Triple A family ko especially with Mr. T [Antonio Tuviera], si Direk Mike [Tuviera] na naintindihan nila na ang priority ko ay ito.
“Kasi ang hirap, e.
“Kung buntis din ako at ginawa ko yung movie, baka mag-alala rin ako.
“Baka pagsisihan ko kapag ginawa ko na buntis ako. Pero definitely, sobrang gandang pelikula.”
It can be recalled that in July 2018, it was mentioned by Marian's manager Ram David that the Kapuso Primetime Queen will make a comebck to the big screen either in November or in December, should the Metro Manila Film Festival pick it as one of this year's entries.
Marian's last film appearance was in 2016, on the movie Imagine You and Me, where she had a cameo role.
