There’s no stopping Primetime Queen Marian Rivera from basking in the limelight of her successful career after receiving yet another acting award from the 5th Northwest Samar State University (NwSSU) Students’ Choice Award for Radio and Television (NSCART).

The Primetime Queen won Best Actress in a Primetime Teleserye for her outstanding performance in the Pinoy adaptation of the top-rating drama, Temptation of Wife.

Marian is very overwhelmed with this new recognition from the students of NwSSU, “Lubos akong nagpapasalamat sa parangal na ibinigay ng mga mag-aaral mula sa NwSSU. Maraming salamat dahil na-appreciate nila ang naging pagganap ko bilang si Angeline/Chantal na isa sa mga roles na ipinagmamalaki ko at memorable para sa akin. Sana ay hindi sila magsawa na suportahan at mahalin ang iba ko pang mga projects sa GMA,” says Marian.

Meanwhile, after a month since its launch on GMA Telebabad, more and more Filipino viewers are mesmerized with the love team of Marian and Kapuso Network’s leading man Alden Richards in the drama series Carmela.

Marian and Alden’s onscreen chemistry is very palpable considering this is the first time they are paired together in a major project of the network. Both artists not only captivate viewers in their every scene but also their powerful performances make audiences connect and relate to their characters Carmela and Yago.

Their popularity is not only evident in the Philippines but also in other countries where fellow Filipinos are watching Carmela on GMA Pinoy TV, the flagship international channel of GMA Network.

The network has been receiving positive feedback here and abroad about their performances. One of Marian and Alden’s avid supporters is a GMA Pinoy TV subscriber in New Jersey, USA who has been a loyal follower of GMA 7 most especially Marian for many years since she first appeared in Marimar in 2007.

She shared that many Filipinos in New Jersey love and admire Marian and they look forward to see her perform the theme song of Carmela—”Sana’y Ikaw”— with Alden, “They (Marian and Alden) really amaze us every time they have a scene together in Carmela. They really have the chemistry and they’re both excellent in their craft.”
