These Are The Celebrities Who Auditioned To Get The Role As Marimar!


The Mexican telenovela Marimar, starring international celebrity Thalia, became so iconic here in the Philippines that GMA network decided to make a remake of it with an all-Filipino cast. 
In 2007, the Kapuso network finally announced that Dingdong Dantes will be playing the role of Sergio while then-newcomer, Marian Rivera, will play the most coveted role of Marimar. However, Marian wasn’t really hand-picked during that time as she was still new in showbiz. With no connections and past projects whatsoever, the show’s director and production staff preferred Angel Locsin to play the role. Unfortunately, Angel turned down the part due to scheduling issues. This then gave way for other Kapuso actresses to audition. 

We’ve rounded out the list of stars who tried their luck in auditioning for the role of Marimar before Marian was eventually chosen. Take a look at who they are:

1. Marian Rivera – Her fresh face and wicked dance moves eventually landed her the role of Marimar alongside her current husband DingDong Dantes.
