VIDEO: Marimar Teaser Released, Netizens React to Megan Young’s Portrayal
GMA has released the official first teaser to the 2015 remake of Marimar, originally starred in by Thalia then remade by Marian Rivera.
Marimar will be poised to compete with Channel 2’s PSY series starring Jodi Sta Maria and Angelica Panganiban.
Reactions are mixed on social media with some approving of Megan’s take on the iconic Mexican novela character.
A netizen said Megan has a sophisticated look, something that’s fresh. Others however find it less appealing since they are used to the more innocent-looking persona of Thalia and Marian.
Most of the comments however are aimed at GMA criticizing the lack of original stories in primetime programming.
