Marian Rivera agreed to guest in indie film, Ekstra, with Vilma Santos for free. Cosmo's March cover girl admitted she did it "for the love of" her craft. The two seemed to have hit it off, as Marian said it was Ate Vi who approached her during her first day of shooting.
“Siya ang lumapit sa akin, at sabi niya, ‘Hi Marian, thank you sa pag-guest mo. Thank you siya nang thank you sa akin. Sabi ko, ako nga ang dapat magpasalamat sa kanya. Ang bait-bait niya talaga," the actress said.
Marian reveals she is a huge fan of the Star for All Seasons, and considers it an honor to work with someone like Ate Vi."So, bakit ka pa magse-second thought, isang Vilma Santos na ang makasama mo na halos pangarap din namang makasama ng mga kagaya ko, di ba? Kaya walang second thought talaga.”
