Maja Salvador sheds her teenybopper image to play a female teacher who comes to terms with her sensuality. She becomes the wife of Jason Abalos in the upcoming drama series titled Nagsimula Sa Puso.


ABS-CBN gears up for the TV remake of the 1990 film that starred Jay Ilagan, Hilda Koronel, Armida Siguion-Reyna, and Richard Gomez. This Mel Chionglo film earned for Richard a nomination as Best Actor in the Gawad Urian.

Under the direction of Malu Sevilla, Nagsimula Sa Puso is a showcase of romance, drama, sensuality and suspense featuring four of the brightest stars of ABS-CBN.

Maja, touted as the Dance Floor Princess, will play the role of Celina, a woman whose life is mainly routine. Jason Abalos will give life to the role of Jim, a man who has always loved Celina. Completing the love triangle is Coco Martin who will portray the character of Carlo, a quiet young man who has a deep concern to his family. Nikki Gil will also contribute to the complex connection of the three as she breathes life to the role of Charie, the woman who has kept her feelings for Jim.

Love springs from the heart, but what if selfishness rules it? How will the characters confront the two faces of love?


DANCE FLOOR PRINCESS GOES DARING. In the press conference of Nagsimula sa Puso, Maja revealed what made her accept this daring role. "Kasi malapit na kong mag-21 years old at gusto kong ipakita sa mga tao na woman na si Maja. Ready na pong harapin kung ano man ang ibibigay na roles ng ABS-CBN."


How would she compare her sexy scenes with the ones shown by Erich Gonzales and Kim Chiu in their respective TV shows?

"Si Erich kasi sexy pero yung Katorse parang bagets pa rin. Si Kim [Chiu] naman sa Tayong Dalawa, mature rin yung ginagawa niya [honeymoon scene with Gerald Anderson]. Ito iba naman kasi 23-25 years old [na babae] ang gagampanan ko."

How would she describe the love scene that she did with her leading men Jason Abalos and Coco Martin?

"Yung kay Jason, matagal na kaming magkaibigan pero nung ginawa namin yung love scene, may pinakita siya sa akin na parang nagulat ako," she admitted. "Pero hindi naman ako nabastos. Sobrang profesional talaga si Jason.

"Yung kay Coco naman, aktor talaga si Coco Martin. Napakasuwerte ko na nakasama ko siya at siya ang kasama kong gumawa ng love scene. Pinaramdam niya sa akin na babae ako."

How did she prepare for her love scenes?

"Masuwerte po ako na aktor talaga ang kasama ko...kumbaga inalalayan nila ako. Kumbaga tinulungan nila ako kung paano gagawin ang eksena. In fairness dun sa dalawang ka-loveteam ko, inalalayan nila ako at hindi ako nabastos."

Was it hard for her to accept this daring role?

"Hindi naman po. Kumbaga, sa mga billboard din naman medyo sexy na rin naman ako. Kinausap ako at okay naman po. Kung kailangan dun sa character ko, bakit hindi? Bakit naman ako tatanggi sa isang napakagandang project?"

Does this mean that she will be leaving the show May Bukas Pa?

"Hindi po, babalik po si Estella. Kailangan ko lang mag temporary exit para paghandaan ang Nagsimula sa Puso," assured Maja.
