After the success of the primetime teleserye Bridges of Love, Kapamilya actress Maja Salvador is back to doing another primetime TV series, the TV adaptation of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, opposite actor Coco Martin.
With this, Maja expressed her gratitude towards the Kapamilya network for giving her many work opportunities such as top-rating teleseryes and an album that earned a Platinum award.
“Siguro po iba lang din mag-alaga ang ABS-CBN… Star Creatives, Dreamscape, alam nila kung paano alagaan ang mga artista nila. Alam nila bigyan ng tamang proyekto kaya po ako sobrang masaya po ako na simula nang nagsimula ako, parang sobrang blessed ‘yung pakiramdam ko. Parang taon-taon hindi ako pinapabayaan ng ABS-CBN,” she said.
“Na bawat teleseryeng ginagawa ko, sobrang proud ako dahil parang sobrang nasasakto ‘yung role ko, ‘yung character ko sa akin,” she shared, adding that she likes to do roles that challenge her. “Kaya kung susundan niyo po ‘yung track nung mga teleseryeng ginawa ko, wala pong parehas, iba-iba.”
Aside from the recently concluded Bridges of Love, Maja also starred in the top-rated shows The Legal Wife and Ina, Kapatid, Anak. She is set to do a role of a policewoman named Glen in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
“Sobrang blessed lang po talaga ako at siguro nakikita rin ng management na grabe ko rin talaga mahalin ‘yung mga proyektong binibigay nila sa’kin at nakikita nila na importante talaga sa’kin ang mga projects na ginagawa ko po,” she concluded.
Meanwhile, a representative from Dreamscape shared why they chose Maja to become Coco’s love interest in the FPJ movie remake. “Hindi naman natin maipag-kadeny-deny na ang chemistry ni Coco Martin at ni Maja Salvador ay potent.” Secondly, he said Maja is not complacent with her work, “Hindi siya demanding as an actor pero she will always ask producers… Ano ‘yung kakaiba sa role na gagampanan niya.” Furthermore, he said that she and Coco can reinvent themselves naturally and without exerting too much effort.
