Although she has a Best Actress trophy from Gawad Urian, Maja Salvador said that she will not be choosy when it comes to roles. “Kung mabigat, maganda, malaki o maliit na project, dapat lahat ng projects na ibigay sa ‘yo dapat [itrato mong] malaki. Dapat ‘yung parang baka last project ko na ito, dapat ibigay ko na lahat,” she explained.
She revealed that she uses her acting awards as a motivation to perform well. She added that what she deems important is that she is able to portray each role convincingly or effectively. “Hindi naman choosy [sa roles], kumbaga sana ‘yung tatanggapin ko ‘yung alam kong di ko awkward na gagawin, ‘yung hindi pilit, ‘yung alam kong kakayanin kong magawa yung karakter na naibigay sa akin,” she related.
Like any professional thespian, Maja continued that she does not want to limit herself as far as being an actress is concerned. “Hangga’t kaya at kailangan kong ibigay, hangga’t kailangan ng script, ng storya at ‘yun ang mas magpapaganda sa kwento, ibibigay ko.”
Maja will be part of the upcoming teleserye Ina, Kapatid, Anak that will also star Kim Chiu, Enchong Dee, Xian Lim, Janice de Belen, Cherry Pie Picache, Eddie Gutierrez and Ariel Rivera. “Ang karakter ko dito si Margaux. Siya ‘yung sapatos na makinang, mamahalin pero hindi nagagamit at nasa loob lang ng kahon pero paano pag lumabas na ang sapatos sa kahon?”
Ina, Kapatid, Anak is expected to air very soon on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.
