In one of her earlier interviews, Rivera hinted at her project with Tanghalang Ateneo alongside her other endorsements.
“Mayroon po akong ginawang sa teatro po sa Ateneo ang Oedipus Rex. Di ko po alam kung paano pong treatment po yung gagawin nila, as a film po ata yun. So as of now. Yun na muna po at siguro shooting ng mga endorsement. Yun lang muna po,” said Rivera.
She also added that she supposedly has three other projects that were shelved because of the pandemic. This was aside from First Yaya, from which she backed out due to her family’s safety.
“Actually po kung walang pandemia, tatlong pelikula po yung gagawin ko. Sayang! Pero ngayon mahirap po atang gumawa ngayon at di po talaga safe. At sayang rin po yung First Yaya. Hindi ko din po nagawa,” said Rivera.
She also added that she is thankful for her steady project with GMA Network’s Tadhana and highlighted that she aims to take things gradually and one at a time.
“So as of now, very thankful po ako dahil diretso pa rin kami ng Tadhana. Kahit papaano nabigyan ng pagkakataon na makapag-taping po sa bahay. Na nagiging maayos naman po ang paglabas. As of now yun muna po ako. Gradual, One at time muna po ako,” said Rivera.
Earlier this year, Rivera backed out of the First Yaya because of the locked-in filming for the teleserye which would have separated her from her family.
