Maja Salvador doesn't intend to compete with Kim Chiu in 'My Binondo Girl'


092911-maja_main.jpgFresh from playing Krista in the action-drama teleserye Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin, Maja Salvador returns to primetime as Amber Dionisio, the newest character in My Binondo Girl. Maja told Push.com.ph during her promo shoot how ecstatic she was when told that she would be part of the teleserye top-billed by her best friend Kim Chiu. “Na-excite ako kasi susuporta ako sa show ng aking kaibigan na si Kim. Nanonood din kasi ako ng My Binondo Girl at tuwang-tuwa ako sa istorya. Kaya hindi ako makapaniwala nung sinabi sa akin na kukunin ako para makasama sa show.”

Maja, however, refused to reveal if her character would be a friend or a foe. “Kaya ko siya inaccept kasi nagustuhan ko talaga ‘yung character at never pa akong nakagawa ng ganito. Basta abangan niyo na lang. Hindi pa ako pwedeng magkwento ngayon.”

Having played numerous teleserye characters in the past, the 23-year-old actress from the respected Salvador showbiz clan shared what she loves about Amber. “Sa kwento kasi naipapakita na ‘yung mga babae palaban sila, na hindi sila magpapatalo. Excited ako sa magiging character ko na si Amber kasi maganda ‘yung kwento niya. Si Amber, tulad ni Jade, maghahangad din siya ng pagtanggap at pagmamahal mula sa pamilya. Ipaglalaban niya ‘yung alam niyang karapatan niya.”

Aside from her character, Maja said that she is also very excited to start taping for My Binondo Girl because she will get to spend time with her best friend Kim. “Nung na-confirm na nga na sasali ako sa My Binondo Girl, nagka-text kami ni Kim. Sabi niya sobrang excited siya na sa akin napunta ‘yung role. At siyempre dahil magkakaroon kami ng mas maraming time na magkasama. Hindi na lang kami magkaibigan na basta na lang nagchichikahan. Magkakatulungan na rin kami sa trabaho. Feeling ko mas magiging strong ‘yung friendship namin dahil dito.”

But now that Kim and Maja will be starring opposite each other in a teleserye, it’s inevitable that viewers will make comparisons as to who is the better actress. However for Maja, work should not affect friendship. “Dahil mga artista kami pagdadaanan talaga namin ‘yung mga ganyang comparison. Sa amin naman ni Kim alam naman namin na trabaho lang. Mas mangingibabaw ‘yung friendship. Dedma na lang sa comparison. Pareho na lang naming gagawing mahusay ‘yung mga characters namin. Sina Jade at Amber ‘yung mapapanood, hindi si Kim at Maja. Sa totoong buhay kasi masayang-masaya kami. Pero dito sa kwento ng My Binondo Girl, abangan niyo kung magiging kaibigan ba si Amber o may inililihim siya.”
