It’s Showtime Girl Trends member Maika Rivera gets a big acting break as she will soon become part of the upcoming Arci Munoz-Jericho Rosales primetime teleserye Never, Ever Say Goodbye.
Playing the role of John Estrada and Gelli de Belen characters’ daughter, Maika shared that she will have a love team partner, namely Tubig at Langis actor Marco Gumabao.
“Mabait po siya at saka he’s very nice to me,” she told PUSH.com.ph. Maika added, “He helps me kasi sabi niya ‘first time mo, so let’s get to be with each other.’ Tapos parang very comforting po siya.”
In separate interview, Marco said that he is excited to work with Maika who has the same interests. “We want to be closer to each other and build a chemistry para mas maging madali ‘yung work namin,” he said.
Maika said that it is really her goal to become an actress and expressed her gratitude towards the network for being given work opportunities. “Actually po talaga, I really came into this showbiz wanting to be an actor po talaga. Like gusto ko po talaga maging actor, dramatic actor… Just to be versatile po talaga and I’m very, very blessed na binigyan ako ng ABS (CBN) ng opportunity to be able to be more comfortable with the people and the cameras and to learn how to dance po kasi hindi po talaga ako dancer. Pero, I really, really try my hardest,” she said.
When asked about a specific dream role, Maika answered, “Ang akin pong dream role is to be a main, leading lady or Darna po. Talagang gustong gusto kong maging Darna.”
Considering that she answered Darna, does it mean that she is ready to show some skin?
“For Darna po. For Darna, siyempre po ‘pag nasa tamang edad na po at kapag medyo comfortable na rin po ako sa sarili kong katawan and of course naman po, gusto ko naman pong i-plot in a way where strong siya, hindi siya in a way na parang pa-sexy lang,” she said.
