High Expectations Await ‘The Rich Man’s Daughter’ Sans Marian

There is considerable pressure for Rhian Ramos as ‘The Rich Man’s Daughter”s premiere nears.

After all, she was chosen to replace the teleserye’s original lead star Marian Rivera, who had to back out from the series due to her impending pregnancy. That said, a talent as big as Marian’s looms so large that high expectations were quickly bestowed on Rhian’s shoulders upon getting the nod as her replacement.

In the upcoming series, Rhian will play the role of Jade Tanchingco, an heiress of a wealthy Chinese-Filipino family. With the help of her father, she sought for a suitor, even going as far as giving the bachelor P5 million if he is successful in wooing her.

But as it turned out, Jade would reveal herself as a lesbian, throwing her family into a series of revelations that will challenge her personal truths. It’s up to her to choose what’s important: family or her lesbian lovers.

Joining Rhian on ‘The Rich Man’s Daughter’ will be Glaiza de Castro, Al Tantay, Luis Alandy, Katrina Halili, Mike Tan, Chynna Ortaleza, Sheena Halili, Ms. Gloria Romero, Pauleen Luna, Paolo Contis, TJ Trinidad, Charee Pineda, Stephanie Sol, Glydel Mercado and Tony Mabesa. Dominic Zapata, famous for another same-sex drama in ‘My Husband’s Lover’, will direct the upcoming series.

The success of ‘The Rich Man’s Daughter’ will depend on how Rhian will be able to portray the lesbian lover role effectively, and on how viewers will respond to her performance. It will also be a huge test to see how the series fares well against its upcoming rival, ABS-CBN’s ‘Bridges of Love’.

Nevertheless, GMA is confident that Rhian will be an able replacement for Marian on ‘The Rich Man’s Daughter’. Now GMA must hope that their faith in Rhian in the series will pay off.

‘The Rich Man’s Daughter’ premieres this Monday after ‘Let the Love Begin’ on GMA Telebabad.

  1. maganda yung casting ng TRMD at yung story but ang pinaka-ayoko yung director na si dominic zapata kasi nagiging basura na rin magdirek si dominic zapata habang 2matagal hindi na ako nagagalingan mag-direk yan kasi lagi siya gumagamit na film na galaw o cinematic ang galaw sa tuwing nagdidirek si dominic z. ng mga shows sa GMA 7 na nagmukha na siya indie movie na gawa ng isang low class at low budjet na productions tapos panget rin ng kulay NAPAPANSIN KO RIN YON. tapos gumagamit siya ng korning effects tulad na napanood ko noon sa carmela ni marian rivera at hiram na alaala pati yung ismol family na siya (dominic zapata) ang director ng ismol family di ba gumagamit ng korning effects/visual na hindi maganda at korni talaga tignan, korni talaga magdirek si dominic zapata atchaka hindi applicable ba? di ba ung ismol family, family oriented sitcom yon tapos hinaluan niya ng korning visual effects unlike yung pepito manaloto family oriented sitcom yon pero mas maganda yung pepito manaloto dahil sa walang halong korning something like effects.

    • ‘Corny’ and ‘basura’ are very harsh words for an accomplished director. Pero opinyon mo lang ‘to, and I respect that. Still, maganda ang track record ni Dominic Zapata; he was even nominated for an Asian Television Award. He’s still young, but he’s growing and learning to his role.
