Marian Rivera’s fame spreads across Southeast Asia
by FFE Entertainment News Staff
She is one of the most sought-after actresses in the Philippines. But recently, Marian Rivera has also been capturing the hearts of fans from neighbouring countries like Vietnam and Thailand.
The 29-year-old actress was awarded the Most Favourite Foreign Actress at the Face of the Year Awards 2014 of Vietnam’s Today TV, which airs some of the actress’ shows. Online polls declared Marian the winner, and she will be awarded in December.
Last year, Marian flew to Vietnam and appeared in several TV shows after ‘Marimar,’ ‘Temptation of Wife’ and ‘Dyesebel’ gained a steady following from Vietnamese audience.
In Thailand, Marian is also making waves as she has been chosen as cover girl for men’s magazine FHM January 2014 issue. The Madrid-born Kapuso actress said she is honoured to be featured in the cover.
The Philippine FHM has also hailed Marian as 2013’s Sexiest Woman.
Back in the Philippines, Marian’s fans are also showing their endless support for the Marimar actress as she was voted 2013’s Favorite Cosmo Cover Girl after she graced the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine last March.
‘Thank you so much for voting me as your favorite Cosmo Cover Girl! CHEERS!’ Marian said in her Instagram account.
Marian will be back on primetime TV this January with the drama series ‘Carmela.’ The Kapuso Primetime Queen will be playing the title role and she will be teaming up with matinee idol Alden Richards for the first time.
