It’s already been two years since the last time we saw Wildflower – among the most well-loved and longest-running teleseryes of ABS-CBN – and recently, four of its stars had an exciting and amusing reunion online!
Facilitated by Aiko Melendez, who impeccably portrayed the notorious kontrabida Emilia Ardiente-Torillo, through her official YouTube channel last September 5, she truly gave her subscribers and the fans of the program a fantastic treat by reuniting with her former co-stars and real-life friends Roxanne Barcelo, Sunshine Cruz, and Maja Salvador!
The virtual get-together commenced with the actress imparting how their solid bond started.
“If I remember it right, meron kaming eksenang apat. ‘Yong nagtatagisan kami ng acting at ng mga linyahan, alam n’yo naman sa Wildflower,” she recounted. “’Yung director namin, si Direk Raymund Ocampo e gusto niya talagang banter namin sa isa’t isa talagang panalo ang mga linya. So naisip naming apat, ano kayang pwedeng [itawag] sa amin? So we thought of, sabi naming, bakit hindi namin tawagin ang sarili naming “the four witches”? Kaya ang title ng live natin ngayon is the “Four Witches” kasi nga, mga bruhilda kami. Pero in real, we are sweethearts.”
She divided the live chat into four segments, allotting several minutes for each of her interviewees, and asked them questions that many of us have been probably yearning to hear answers from them.
Roxanne Barcelo, who plays the cunning and seductive Natalie Alcantara, was the first one to take on the hotseat. They talked about how she got her role, how it drastically changed her life, and the attributes of Natalie that she also possesses, as well as revisited their most memorable moments with Aiko behind the scenes of Wildflower. Aiko also went on to ask her a few ‘killer’ questions, which Roxanne enthusiastically responded to.
The next to face her was her longtime friend Sunshine Cruz, who amazed us with her remarkable portrayal of the sophisticated yet savage Camia Cruz. The Love Thy Woman star got real in discussing the recent challenges that she and her daughters went through and her beautiful love affair with her boyfriend of four years Macky Mathay, as well as revisited how difficult it was for them to execute some of their intense clashes and shared Camia’s message to Aiko’s Emilia Ardiente-Torillo.
Last, but definitely not the least, was Maja Salvador, who played the iconic role of bida-kontrabida Lily Cruz and Ivy Aguas. The Kapamilya actress responded to the host’s questions on who between Ivy and Lily she could see herself more, the most unforgettable scene they shared together, Wildflower’s secret to success, her first impression of Aiko during their first meeting, and her most unforgettable line of Lily that she would want to tell her boyfriend Rambo. She also shared a bit about their relationship.
On the last segment, the “four witches” played the Who’s Who game, wherein they had to name who among them responds the best to question or description uttered by Aiko. The host also asked each one of them to share their message to one another.
