Sue Ramirez admits ‘breaking down’ after getting cast for ‘The Broken Marriage Vow’

Sue Ramirez still feels over the moon for getting cast in the much-anticipated Filipino remake of the hit British series “Doctor Foster”, titled “The Broken Marriage Vow”.

A lot of the actress’ excitement comes from being able to work with co-star Jodi Sta. Maria, whom she has looked up to even before she entered showbiz.

“I remember the first time nakita ko si Jodi Sta. Maria, nagte-taping siya ng ‘Tayong Dalawa’ malapit sa subdivision kung saan ako nakatira. Nag-bike ako papunta sa location nila, tapos pinicture-an ko lang siya gamit ‘yung flip phone ko,” Sue shared in an interview with ABS-CBN News.

She added, “Ngayon, makakasama ko na siya! Makakatrabaho ko na siya! Makaka-eksena ko na siya! Excited na excited na excited ako talaga.”

Because of this, Sue can’t help but feel pressured. “Medyo may pressure, pero more excited ako than pressured! Iba ‘yung pakiramdam na nakikita ko lang sila dati, nagba-bike pa ako, tapos ngayon nakaka-eksena ko na sila. Nakakatuwa, naha-happy ako!”

Since the series has had successful remakes all over the world, most notably South Korea’s “The World of the Married”, Sue acknowledged the magnitude of the project and she’s grateful to be chosen for it.

“Aside from it being a talked about K-drama na lumaki talaga in the world, medyo malaki ‘yung pressure na na-feel ko. But more than that, sobrang thankful talaga ako,” she said. “Ang daming magagandang artista, ang daming magagaling na artista, but ako talaga ‘yung napili nila for this. Wala akong ibang maramdaman noong mga panahon na ‘yun kung 'di pagpapasalamat dahil doon sa tiwala.”

When the former “A Soldier’s Heart” star first heard that she got the job, she was so overwhelmed that she was immediately in tears. “I really broke down crying, because it’s such a big project also for ABS-CBN, because they’re doing this with BBC London. Na-overwhelm ako at saka sobrang hindi pa nag-sink in sa akin noong mga panahon na ‘yun.”

In the interview, Sue made sure to let fans of the series know that though what they’re doing is a remake it would still be “very different.”

“Because culture-wise, magkaiba naman talaga ‘yung tatlong bansang ‘yan. Of course, Filipinized version talaga siya,” she explained. “I hope that the audience will open their mind to the differences. The differences can be major, but most definitely, we’ll give the same amount of entertainment that they felt with the two series that they’ve watched before.”

Joining Sue and Jodi in “The Broken Marriage Vow” are Zanjoe Marudo and Zaijain Jaranilla. It is set to premiere soon across ABS-CBN platforms.
