She’s definitely one of the bankable and sought-after artists of her generation. It’s been 14 years since we first saw her and heard her name on television through the defunct showbiz-oriented talk show The Buzz which documented her touching reunion with his father, former actor Ross Rival. Mesmerized by her appeal, then ABS-CBN chief executive officer Charo Santos-Concio requested to meet her and the rest is history.
As she continuously conquer the local entertainment scene with her enchanting allure and amazing talent, she’s often a subject of issues at the same time, commonly linking her to various guys. Amidst all the obstacles she had to hurdle both in real life and in the industry, many still admire Maja Salvador.
Well, it’s not difficult to love her, especially with these reasons:
She’s passionate about her craft
She may came from one of the most well-known clans in Pinoy showbiz, but the actress created her own spotlight and proved that she can make her own name with her impressive acting flair. From gracing the catwalk as an aspiring model, she took on her first role through the John Lloyd Cruz-Bea Alonzo starrer “It Might Be You”. Since then, strings of project came her way both in TV and film.
When she became a regular part of ASAP, it was discovered that she can dance and sing too! Her jaw-dropping and trending performances in the variety show gained her the moniker “Dance Floor Princess”. She already held concerts, released two platinum-rated albums, and did a song collaboration with Thai singer Saksit Vejsupaporn (a.k.a. Tor) last September.
In an interview with the defunct ABS-CBN talk show Showbiz Inside Report in 2013, Maja implied that she initially considered show business as a mere source of income only, until realizing that she already loves whatever she’s doing after five years.
With her unmistakable talent and passion for her craft, she earned nominations and recognitions from various award-giving bodies throughout her 14-year career. Armed with the right attitude as well, it’s really possible for her to last in the unpredictable world of entertainment for a long time despite the ever-growing population of artists.
She loves and values so much the special people in her life
The 29-year-old multifaceted actress owes her successful showbiz journey to the ones who constantly stood by her side through the ups and downs of life – her family, friends, fans, and other people who believe in her.
Being the eldest, she helps on funding the education of her half-siblings Marie and Kirby who are now proud graduates. Thus, the two got emotional while expressing how grateful they are to their generous and loving Ate Maja during their surprise guesting in Magandang Buhay. Her younger brother also revealed that she is indeed a spoiler to everyone she loves.
She has been a great provider for them ever since and some of her hard-earned money went to the construction of their grand abode.
They may not be able to see each other frequently due to their unrelated schedules, the Wildflower headliner shared that she requests her Saturdays be blocked off from work to spend even just an overnight with her family and friends.
She’s an adventure-seeker and a wanderer
