Did you know that Maja Salvador was the original choice to top-bill the 2019 movie Isa Pa With Feelings?

Isa Pa With Feelings, a movie produced by ABS-CBN Films's Black Sheep productions, was top-billed by Maine Mendoza and Carlo Aquino. It was shown in October 2019.

In an interview with reporters at a product endorsement event last February 1, Maja was asked about the possibility of doing a project with her ex-boyfriend Gerald Anderson.

The 31-year-old actress then revealed that she and Gerald were supposed to top-bill Isa Pa With Feelings.

Maja disclosed, "Una kasi, tinanggap ko yun, una wth JC Santos, then hindi pwede si JC.

"Tapos biglang Gerald daw, then okay lang din ako, hanggang hindi nag-push through yung project."

Isa Pa With Feelings revolved around Mara (Maine), a frustrated architect who falls in love with her deaf next-door neighbor and sign-language instructor Gali (Carlo).

In other words, said Maja, she is still willing to do a project with ex-boyfriend Gerald "as long as maganda yung script."

SUCCESS OF THE KILLER BRIDE

During the interview, Maja also talked about the success of her recently concluded Kapamilya series, The Killer Bride.

Maja said she was happy with the outcome of her show.

"Sobrang blessed talaga dahil sinong mag-aakala na, after Wildflower, akala ko, hindi mamahalin ng mga tao yung mga bagong characters or bagong role na gagawin ko.

"Pero, ayun nga, mula umpisa hanggang matapos, grabe yung suportang natanggap ko."

Maja also revealed that it was her request to have her character Camila dela Torre get killed and become a vengeful ghost a week before The Killer Bride's final episode.

She explained, "Oo, actually nirequest ko yun na mamatay.

"Yun pala, isa din sa gustong mangyari ng writers and ng creatives.

"Kasi mas gusto namin realidad, ganun yung pupuntahan."

As for Maja's next project, the Kapamilya actress said that a movie has already been pitched to her.

If plans push through, the project will reunite her with a female actress she has already worked with in the past.

"May pinitch sa akin na movie the other day. Hopefully, kapag natanggap ng isa kong makakasama, e, magtuluy-tuloy.

"Muling balikan namin, balikan?! But hindi siya guy, it's a girl.

"But dapat nga hindi ako nagbibigay ng hint kasi siyempre hindi ko pa alam!"
