Her fans also seem to be multiplying. We got several e-mails praising her performance.
From Jing Tumbokon: “The more I watch Marian, the more I realize bagay na bagay nga siya sa role ng ‘Marimar’. Pagaling siya nang pagaling. At this point, I cannot imagine anymore ang kahit na sino pang aktres who’ll be effective in this role.”
From Kath Mirta: “Did you see Marian Rivera in ’Marimar’ doon sa burol scene matapos pagtangkaan siyang patayin ni Katrina Halili? Grabe ang galing niya.” She then forwarded us a thread on the net where we got to read more positive comments for Marian. One of them even says that it will be a mortal sin if she wouldn’t be nominated as best actress for her very effective performance. We just hope all these rave remarks won’t go into her head.
