After the success of Wildflower which was then followed by her stint as a judge on World of Dance Philippines, Maja Salvador is ready to once again show Kapamilyas her acting prowess. Are you ready to meet The Killer Bride? The premier for this Primetime series is only a week away. Before then, the actress is revisiting some of her previous characters that led to this moment!
Pangarap sa Bituin aired back in 2007 and is still one of Maja’s most memorable projects. “Alam mo napagod ako dyan sa seryeng ‘yan kasi baklang bakla ako dyan,” she recounted. Her handler had to submit CDs from her mall shows as a way of auditioning, “kasi papakinggan ng management kung may boses ako.” In the end, she landed the role of Sarah Geronimo’s sister as well as teamed up with Jay-R Siaboc to become a love team. It was also through this show that she became friends with comedian Pooh.
Next up is 2012’s Ina, Kapatid, Anak. Maja recounted one of the techniques she used for this project. Every character required a different emotion, so she would ask herself a simple question, “ano bang problema ko sa taong ‘to?” This helped her understand her co-stars’ roles as well as how she had to interact with them for a scene.
Last but certainly not least, The Legal Wife from 2014. “’Yan, natanggalan ako ng hair after ng sabunutan,” she remembered after seeing one of her clashes with Angel Locsin. But all the hair she sacrificed must have been worth it. “Isa ‘yan sa mga seryeng bumuhay ulit sa career ko,” she stated.
These are only three of Maja Salvador’s best work through the years. We are excited to see what else she has in store for the future.
