Jason Abalos and Maja Salvador open up about their failed romance


012212-jason_main.jpgKnown for keeping his love life on a low profile, Jason Abalos finally admitted that he used to have special feelings for Lumayo Ka Man Sa Akin co-star Maja Salvador. But as it is, Maja’s former manager Chit Ramos prevented them from having a full-blown romance at that time. “Si Tita Chit [ang dahilan kung bakit ako lumayo kay Maja noon]. Pero matagal naman po yun. Tsaka para sa amin, hindi nakasama e. Walang masamang tinapay,” Jason said during the grand press con of Lumayo Ka Man Sa Akin last January 17.

Jason further shared that it was a good thing that he and Maja ended up as close friends rather than lovers. “Nagpapasalamat kami kay Tita Chit kasi na-realize namin na kung nagtuloy-tuloy pala yun, hindi pala yun yung totoong pag-ibig na hinahanap namin. Kumbaga, naexcite kami na nagkatambalan kami, mas maganda pala na naging magkaibigan kami, mas close kami ngayon.

On her part, Maja agreed that she was too young to be in a relationship back then. “Yung mga ganong kinikilala niyo yung isa’t isa, nung medyo nakakatunog na, ayun na. Siyempre as a manager, ginagawa lang ni Tita Chit yung trabaho niya, kasi bilang alaga niya ako, wala siyang ibang gusto kundi maging maganda yung career ko. Ako po, hindi ko naman yun tinitignan na sobrang pangit, kasi may maganda namang pinuntahan.

In light of their romantic past, they were asked if they get carried away every time they shoot intimate scenes in Lumayo Ka Man Sa Akin. But Jason insisted that they are professional enough to understand that it’s all part of their work. “Bago kasi kami sumalang sa isang eksena, naka-mindset kami na trabaho lang talaga. Siguro may mga pagkakataon, pero kailangan mo alisin kasi malalagyan ng malisya, pangit yung magagwa niyo. Mas maganda yung isip mo, yung imahinasyon mo, malawak. Hindi nakakakahon lang sa isang bagay.”
 
Maja added that they’re both willing to do whatever it takes just to make their soap a huge success. “Bago kasi kami nagumpisa sa Lumayo Ka Man Sa Akin, nagkasama na kami sa Nagsimula Sa Puso. At magkabarkada kasi kami ni Jason. Lumalabas kami every Saturday kung kailan libre yung grupo namin nila Kim (Chiu). So ginawa namin ngayon, wala ng ilangan, todo bigay kaming dalawa kasi gusto talaga naming mapaganda yung show.”
