Maja Salvador doesn't mind waiting for her next teleserye


110411-maja_main.jpgIn her recent contract signing, Maja Salvador claimed that she never considered transferring to another network because she owes a lot to ABS-CBN which gave her a successful showbiz career. “Ay, hindi po. Kasi alam talaga ng puso ko na tunay na kapamilya talaga ako. Iba magalaga talaga ang ABS-CBN. Sila ang dahilan kung bakit natupad ang mga pangarap ko. Kung nasaan man ako, sila lahat nagbigay lahat ng ito. Halos lahat naman ng Star Magic artists [nagka-offer lumipat sa ibang network].”

The talented actress also recalled how the network paved the way for her to be reunited with her father, Rosauro Salvador (a.k.a. Ross Rival), back in 2003. Rosauro passed away in 2007 due to prostate cancer. “Malaki ang natulong sa akin ng network na ito. Sila ang dahilan kung bakit nagkita ulit kami ng father ko. Malaki ang utang na loob ko sa ABS-CBN kaya hindi dapat magdalawang isip kung may offer man ako sa iba dahil dito talaga ako lumaki.”

Although it may take a while before she gets to play a lead role again, the former Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin star maintained that she trusts ABS-CBN would choose the best projects for her. “Kasi siyempre alam ng management kung saan papunta ang career namin. Kung lagi ka nakikita baka magsawa din yung mga tao. Two to three months… hindi lang isang buwan ‘yan wala. At least, ako, kapag walang teleserye or movie, maswerte dahil napapanood nila ako tuwing Sunday sa ASAP Rocks.”

Maja also didn’t mind joining the teleserye, My Binondo Girl, where she plays Kim Chiu’s elder half-sister. Asked if she would be paired with her real-life boyfriend Matteo Guidicelli, Maja explained that her part in the show would be focusing on her rivalry with Kim for now. “Ay, wala. Nagsasalubong kami, pero hindi papunta dun yung plot ko. Kay Kim lang ako. Challenge yun [na wala kaming connection sa story], pero siyempre artista kami. Mas maganda nga na minsan lang kayo magkita para may pananabik,” she cheerfully stated. (Rachelle Siazon)
