As fans continue to guess what would become of the lives of Monica, Adrian, and Nicole during the controversial primetime soap The Legal Wife's much-awaited finale today, Friday, actress Maja Salvador revealed that love would still prevail.
She even teased during her recently-concluded contract signing for the Tupperware brand perfume Ivana at the Intercontinental hotel that the audience would have a hard time guessing what the ending would be.
"Siguro 'yung mga lumalabas [na leak sa social media], talagang buhay teleserye. Ito po, as much as possible, ang binibigay ng The Legal Wife ay yung totoong pakiramdam ng mga taong involved doon sa sitwasyon. Totoong pangyayari sa buhay ang ipapakita namin sa ending,” she underscored.
Despite getting a massive support amid its intriguing plot which propelled for the show to reign supreme on its primetime slot and to consistently trend on various social media platforms during its entire three month run, the show, according to Maja, unfortunately won't have a second book.
"Ang dami pang pwedeng puntahan ng kwento ng The Legal Wife pero sa mga schedules namin, may ibang projects na naghihintay na. Malungkot man pero sobrang saya namin dahil kahit mag-e-end na kami, [kasi] mas tumitindi 'yung suporta," stated the singer-actress.
She even happily added that, "Ang sarap sa pakiramdam na sinasabi nilang 'Wag muna magtapos.' Pero magandang i-end natin ng ganon, ng positive, ng maraming sumusuporta."
While a good number of people may have already known how good an actress Maja is, certain critics have opined that her portrayal of Nicole have cemented the premise even more. To this, Maja couldn't be any more grateful.
"Sa pinapakita po nilang ganon sobrang masaya ako kasi 'yun nga sobrang na-a-appreciate nila 'yung pag-arte ko. Parang hindi sayang 'yung nilalabas kong talent kasi maraming nakaka-appreciate, maraming naiinis sayo dahil nagagampanan mo ng maigi ang character na ginagampanan mo. Ayun sobrang thankful lang ako na maraming nagtitiwala at sumusuporta sa talent kong iyon," she said with a smile.
In fact, her performance has really soared to new heights on this project that even if her role is anything but likable, the Legalistas, the nickname for the viewers of the show, have come to love Maja.
The reason, she believes was mainly because the viewers have matured these days and that "Kasi nga matatalino na ang mga tao ngayon maruning na silang maghiwalay sa kung ano ang role mo sa kung ano ang totoong Maja na nakikita nila."
Now that the show is about to wrap up Maja is set to focus in promoting her debut album Believe. But since her music career only comes second to her love for acting, the sexy actress says she's still raring to do a more challenging role int he future. She has only but one requirement though: "'Wag naman 'yung mistress ulit."
"Kasi siyempre baka magsawa rin kayo. Katulad nga nung sinabi ko, bilang artista, okay 'yung tina-try namin. Kasi almost two years akong nagpaka-bida-kontrabida so sana 'yung dumating naman hindi naman 'yung light pero 'yung iba naman. 'Wag naman 'yung mistress. Madami namang angle ang love eh. Lahat naman ng teleserye tungkol 'yan sa pagmamahal, sana ibang anggulo naman," she reasoned.
