It is official. The new 'Jade' replacing Marian Rivera in her role in The Richman's Daughter is none other than Rhian Ramos.
In a statement released via Philippine Entertainment Portal, Ramos expressed her gratitude towards GMA Network for trusting her yet again.
"Nagpapasalamat po sa GMA sa tiwalang binigay sa akin na ganapan ang role na JADE sa teleseryeng THE RICHMAN'S DAUGHTER. I look forward to the challenge of portraying the character.
My very best wishes and congratulations to Ate Marian Rivera Dantes! I wish her a happy, comfortable, and safe pregnancy."
Fair Game of Replacements
If you remember in 2012, Marian Rivera also had to replace Ramos for her role in My Beloved, the soap opera that featured Dingdong Dantes as a fallen angel. That was during the trying time of Ramos in her plight against Mo Twister.
That soap which had major replacement didn't do so well despite good promotion. We hope that the case of The Richman's Daughter will be different.
Kapuso fans hope that despite the major replacement, the lesbian-themed soap opera will still manage to become phenomenal.
Update: Headwriter asks for Support
Meanwhile, the headwriter of the said soap has just posted a tweet signifying that the project is really pushing through.
