Zsa Zsa Padilla on working with Maja Salvador: ‘She’s a gem to work with’


 

Working in the hit afternoon soap Wildflower has been a great experience for Zsa Zsa Padilla. “They are one of the lightest people I have worked with, not only the cast but also the crew and the production so parang kung ano ang nakikita nila on screen na nagaaway-away kami is the exact opposite of when we are behind the scenes,” she said in an interview with PUSH.

Her character as Red Dragon instantly became popular among the viewers. Zsa Zsa admitted that it was initially challenging to portray the character.

“In the beginning, kasi they had a parang who is Red Dragon, it’s mysterious and all that and very few people guessed that it was me because they were looking for fierce na kontrabida, ganyan, but when napanood na nila little by little ‘yung character na it had to be sweet and flamboyant and somebody you wouldn’t guess na would be a “dragon” in real life so that’s how they understood the character,” she stated.

It is the first time that Zsa Zsa is able to work with Maja in a teleserye. She has nothing but good words for the Wildflower star.

“She’s a gem to work with. I have been working with her ever since ASAP. for as long as I can remember. I worked with her when I was part-producer of Dolphy’s movie. she was one of the stars there and I worked with her in a film actually pero hindi kami nagkasama for Regal. And first time sa teleserye. She never complains and she knows I keep in telling her, ‘This is the moment.’ I am so happy na everything is doing very well with regards to her career, she has a lot of commercials. [I told her] ‘seize the moment’.‘She deserves it,” she stated.
