Once again, she is paired with Marimar co-starDingdong Dantes as they both challenge themselves to bring new life theirsuccessful love team and offer something new to the viewers.

Fresh from their set in Coron, Palawan, Marian and Dingdonggraced Showbiz Central yesterday, April 20. They both talked aboutthe physical and emotional challenges of making the show and waited with the fansfor the unveiling of the new Dyesebel billboard in front of GMA NetworkCenter.

UNDER THE SEA. ShowbizCentral host Pia Guanio commented on Marian's sacrifices for Dyesebel.

"Marian, pinapanood ko pa lang ang footage ng shooting mo saPalawan, e, parang hirap na hirap ako. But first, getting into the costume.Mahirap ba na isuot ang buntot mo, yung headdress mo? How did you manage tostay so beautiful kahit underwater at napakahirap ng mga eksena?"

"Siguro sa tulong na din ng makeup artist ko," Marianreplied. "Tapos yung buntot, nilalagay na lang siya ‘pag nasa tubig na ako. Kasimas mahirap ‘pag wala ako sa tubig. So, sa tubig ko siya nilalagay."

Pia followed up wth, "Of course, Dingdong has had some experienceshooting underwater scenes in the past. One of your problems is not being ableto sink. Kasi naman, sa kaseksihan ni Marian, e, paano ba naman ‘yan lulubog satubig? Dingdong, anong mga tips ang binigay mo kay Marian to help her out?"

"Mahirap talaga yung ginagawa niya," Dingdong admitted. "Asin kailangan pang maglagay ng pabigat, ‘tapos at the same time, malamig pa sailalim ng tubig. Kaya sinasabi ko parati sa kanya na to relax lang talaga."

"Marian, we know for a fact na one of the scenes, talaganginiyakan mo sa hirap," Pia said as Marian laughed. "And of course, hindi kanaman namin masisisi. Talagang mahirap talaga mga eksena mo. This was your lastscene na kinuha sa Palawan wherein si Dyesebel, kinailangan iaangat sa tubig siFredo [Dingdong's character]. Alam na namin yung kuwento mo tungkol diyan. Peroikaw Dingdong, nahirapan ka din ba sa eksenang yun?"

"Actually, ako kasi, parang walang malay ako doon,unconscious ako. So hinihintay ko lang siya [Marian] na dumating at sagipinako. Nagawa naman namin, e, yung first part."

"But you could feel her frustration?" Pia followed.

"Very much," Dingdong answered. "Kasi four, five dayskami sa Palawan. Nong umpisa pa lang, mula araw hanggang mawalan ng araw, e,talagang nasa ilalim ng tubig. Hindi siya umaahon unless ‘pag kumakain lang...ornagsi-CR."

ROLE PLAYING. Dingdong's joke brought about screams from the audience and Pia could hardly hearher own question to Dingdong and Marian. Luckily, she was able to bring herquestion across.

"Of course, unprecedented talaga yung love team ninyongdalawa. Everybody is wondering kung papaano ninyo iibahin yung atake ninyo salove team ninyo sa Dyesebel, and what you did as Sergio and Marimar."

Marian offered to answer first by saying, "Madaming kaibahandin and siyempre, ibang-iba si Marimar kay Dyesebel. Kasi si Dyesebel kasi,sobrang pilya. Light din ang buhay para sa kanya."

Unfortunately, Dingdong's concurrence with Marian'sanswer was drowned out by the crowd's ear-splitting cheers. Switching from loveteam-related questions, Pia asked when the two would return to Palawan.

"Ngayon, ine-explore pa namin yung iba't ibang lugar,"Dingdong replied. "Bataan, at meron din kami sa Bulacan. Hangga't hinditag-ulan."

"Pero it's not all fun and games. Alam kong si Marian madalasmasugatan sa corals," Pia butted in. "Nasugatan while shooting theunderwater scenes. Is that true Marian?"

Marian replied, "Opo, kasi sa tubig ang hirap talagangdumilat at malabo pa yung mata ko. So, nagma-mask muna ako pero hindi ko rinmaiwasan na minsan nasasadsad din ako sa mga corals."
