Maja Salvador: 'Ang sarap lambingin ni Enchong (Dee)'


100512-Maja_main.jpgMaja Salvador admitted that she enjoys taking care of Enchong Dee on the set of Ina, Kapatid, Anak because of his endearing boyish personality. At the same time, she’s amazed with his sense of responsibility and maturity when it comes to dealing with life troubles. “Ang tawag ko sa kanya hindi Enchong, Enchowng, may ‘w’. Ang sarap kasi lambingin ni Enchong e. Si Enchong kapag kausap mo, baby siya, bata kumilos. Pero ‘pag nagusap kayo tungkol sa buhay, bibigyan ka niya ng advice, mature, and seryoso siya. At alam niya kung kailan siya kailangan magbigay ng advice sa akin at hindi. Kunwari may mga nakwento ako, tatango lang siya. Pero meron din yung magdedebate rin kami, pero hindi naman debateng [nag-aaway]. Matindi ang friendship namin ni Enchong. On and off cam nalalambing ko siya.” 

They didn’t have a hard time establishing onscreen chemistry because they both share the same love for their family and dedication to their craft. Under different circumstances, Maja admitted that she could have easily fallen in love with someone like him. “Sa role na ginagawa ni Enchong, ako na mismo magsasabi na gusto ko ng Ethan sa buhay ko. Sabi ko nga, siguro kung isang baguhang artista ako mai-in love ako kay Enchong dahil dun sa character na ginagawa niya. Dahil sobrang ang sarap niya kaeksena, yung pagpapahalaga na ibinibigay niya sa character niya at sa mga taong kaeksena niya.” 

But after many years in the industry, Maja explained that they’ve already learned how to separate work from her personal life. Falling for a co-star is something that usually happens to a newbie who’s not yet trained to control one’s emotions. “Kung bagong artista ka kasi, hindi mo nase-separate yung personal sa trabaho. Kahit nasa bahay ka na iniisip mo pa rin yung mga ginawa mong eksena. E ngayon, tapos na kami sa stage na yun ni Enchong. Hindi mo iisipin na, ‘Ay parang may ibang intensyon si Enchong sa akin, wala. As in alam namin kung ano kami. Masaya kami ‘pag nandito kaming dalawa.
