In 2007, I had the privilege of working with Marian in Marimar, and as her co-actor, I saw in her that extraordinary talent that most people in our industry—including myself— would want to achieve and unlock. Sabi ko sa sarili ko, “this person is a natural.” I never thought the day would come when i could direct her in a sensitive drama that showcased her God-given gift. So here she is now, more than a decade after, with an official recognition by the OFW Gawad Parangal ng KAKAMMPI for her exemplary performance in Tadhana. I am just so happy to have witnessed first hand this milestone behind the camera. The great Maryo J once said that a director will always be the first to see what he/she wants the audience to experience. True enough, during that episode, i knew that this day would come. On and off screen, in my lens as a husband, she will always be my best actress. Magaling din kasi magdrama sa bahay 😂. So proud of you Baby. Congratulations on this much deserved, long overdue award!
