Maja on Wildflower ending: "Sa jowa, madali akong mag-move on pero sa ganito, hindi."

What's next for Maja Salvador after doing the teleserye Wildflower? "May bago akong single na ila-launch sa second of Feb kaya magtu-tour. May pelikula ring gagawin pero light lang," said the actress.


Maja Salvador is finding it difficult to say goodbye to her character Lily Cruz in the ABS-CBN teleserye Wildflower.

When asked how she is dealing with the end of her show, Maja quipped, "Sa jowa, madali akong mag-move on pero sa ganito, hindi."

The actress opened up about the huge impact that the show made on her since it started airing on February 13, 2017. 

"May nagtanong sa akin kung paano ile-let go yung pagiging Lily Cruz ko. Hindi ko masasagot kung paano kasi hindi ko alam kung paano.

"Yung ginawa sa akin ng RSB [Ruel S. Bayani] unit, sobrang laki ng tinulong sa career ko.

"Mas naging grabe yung passion ko para mag-trabaho. Mas naging dedicated pa ako sa kung anong binibigay sa akin na project.

"Dahil sa Wildflower, ang daming offers, ang daming magagandang nangyari," said Maja during their thanksgiving press conference held recently. The Kapamilya teleserye is slated to end on February 9, 2018.

What's next for Maja after doing the early prime-time series Wildflower?

"Balik naman ako sa pagiging performer naman. May concert ako na Maja On Stage.

"May bago akong single na ila-launch sa second of Feb kaya magtu-tour.

"May pelikula ring gagawin pero light lang.

"Ang mahirap kasi pag teleserye, parang wala ka na ring buhay sa labas ng set.

"Imbis na lumabas ka, magpahinga ka na lang kasi kailangan mong i-prepare ang sarili mo sa mga malalaking eksena the following day.

"Ito may pahinga ng konti kasi tour saka pelikula."

Will Maja return to Ang Probinsyano?

"Wala pa naman pong tanong," she admitted. "Pero baka po malabo rin mangyari kasi nga po puno ng tours, at saka may pelikula rin po akong gagawin."

She jokingly made a suggestion for the lead character played by Coco Martin, "Kung gusto po ni Cardo, kung willing siya, puwede niya po tulungan si Lily Cruz sa ending!"

After playing the lead role in this Kapamilya series, will she become more choosy when it comes to picking projects?

"Hindi naman po sa pagiging picky or choosy. Huwag lang yung nagawa ko nang eksena."

The 29-year-old actress expressed her gratitude to Ruel Bayani, the head of the RSB unit of ABS-CBN.

"Gaya ng sinabi ni Direk Ruel, hindi ako takot na tumanggap ng character na hindi pa-sweet, pasalamat ako na isa sa mga teleseryeng inumpisahan ko ay ang It Might Be You.

"Kasama ko si Tito Pip," said Maja as she referred to Tirso Cruz III who now plays Julio Ardiente in Wildflower. The 2003 teleserye It Might Be You was top-billed by Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz. 

Maja recalled that the veteran actor taught her about choosing projects wisely and thinking of herself as a brand.

"Si Tito Pip ang nag-guide sa akin kung ano ang mga tatanggapin kong characters. Never kong kinalimutan yun. Kaya siguro 15 years ako sa industry dahil sa sinabi sa akin ni Tito Pip na ikaw, artista ka pero dapat hindi lang iisa ang binibigay mo.

“Isipin mo ang isa kang product. Di ba, ang bawat product may repackage ‘yan, nag-iiba ng hitsura, may ibang offers, so yun ang lagi niyang sinabi sa akin. Lagi mong isipin na para kang isang product: paano mo ibebenta at paano ka nila kukunin uli?"

Maja continued, “So I am very happy bakit po nakilala si Ivy at si Lily Cruz, isa yun sa malaking tulong ni Tito Pip kasi parang isa po siya sa mabait sa akin sa industriyang ito na talagang isa siya sa mga taong gustong maging successful ako so I am very thankful na nakatrabaho ko ulit si Tito Pip.”

Maja ended by giving Tirso a kiss on the cheek.


WILDFLOWER EXTENSION? Wildflower has become known for its wild catfight scenes and action scenes that become trending topics and popular sources of memes.

Ruel explained, “Mahabag po kayo sa mga creatives namin kasi dugo na yung tumutulo sa mga mata nila sa kaiisip.

“Baka kung i-extend ko pa, ang kalaban [magiging] King Kong, Godzilla. Yung taong kalaban ay hanggang February 9 lang.”

In recent episodes of Wildflower, viewers got to see the torture endured by Maja's character.

Lily gets blamed for the death of Arnaldo (RK Bagatsing) even though he committed suicide.

The Ardientes humiliate her in public and force her to walk around town with a sign indicating that she is a killer. Emilia Ardiente (Aiko Melendez) lashed Lily's back with a whip. Julio Ardiente (Tirso Cruz III) also ordered his henchmen to kill Lily.

But just when the odds are seemingly back in the Ardientes’ favor, the people of Poblacion Ardiente discover a mass grave of bodies suspected to belong to their loved ones who went missing, causing a massive public outrage.
