As the plot of My Binondo Girl thickens, lead star Kim Chiu is very excited about best friend Maja Salvador joining the cast. This is the first time that the two actresses will be together in one teleserye and Kim told Push.com.ph that she is looking forward to spending more time with Maja on the set of My Binondo Girl. “Ang saya kasi dati ang show lang na nagkikita kami is ASAP. Ngayon aside from the normal na chikahan sa ASAP and tambay sa bahay nila magkakasama pa kami sa work. Mas fun kasi nandito na rin si Matteo (Guidicelli) at ‘yung iba pa. Mas masaya na kaming lahat.”
Right after it was confirmed that Maja would be joining the show, she and Kim got to talk at the backstage of ASAP and they both jumped up and down in excitement. “Nagkita kami sa ASAP and nagsigawan kami kasi na-confirm na nga na papasok na siya sa My Binondo Girl. Nag-hug kami and hindi kami makapaniwala. Excited kami.”
Now that the two drama princesses will be starring opposite each other, it’s inevitable for comparisons and rivalry to arise. Kim reacted, “Dati hindi pa ako artista napapanood ko na siya. Pangarap ko siyang makasama kahit sa sayaw lang. Ngayon magkakatapat na kami sa dramahan. OMG, hindi ko maisip!”
But rather than be worried, Kim said that she sees this as an opportunity to learn new things from a talented actress like Maja. “Masaya kasi kakaibang experience kasi dati ang trabaho lang namin na magkasama is kanta o sayaw sa ASAP. Ngayon aktingan na.”
