"Kahit papaano kumu-quota pa rin ako," says Maja Salvador about her showbiz career.

Young actress Maja Salvador showed gratitude to co-star Kris Aquino during the press conference of Patayin sa Sindak si Barbara at the 9501 Restaurant in ABS-CBN Compound last January 9.

The teen actress said it was Deo Edrinal, ABS-CBN business unit head, who informed her about Kris's request to include her in the cast of the first Susan Roces Cinema Collection, Patayin sa Sindak si Barbara.

"Sabi po ni Sir Deo [Edrinal], sabi daw niya [Kris], ‘Gusto ko si Maj,'" said Maja.

With Kris's request, Maja said, her work continued even after her soap opera Pangarap na Bituin.

The 19-year-old Maja expressed, "Yun nga po, nagte-thank you po ako kay Tita Kris kasi after Pangarap na Bituin, dapat po wala pa po akong show. So, noong Pangarap na Bituin, nagte-taping na rin po ng [Patayin sa Sindak si Barbara]."

Maja admitted that she sometimes feels nervous whenever she has a scene with the Queeen of Philippine Cinema, Ms. Susan Roces.

"Yung kay Ms. Susan po, tinatawanan ako ni Tita Kris kasi tuwing kaeksena ko si Ms. Susan, parang lagi akong nabubulol, yung ganun po, dahil sa sobrang kaba. Mahilig po kasi akong ano, e, bago mag-take, ‘Sana hindi ako magkamali, sana hindi ako magkamali.' 'Tapos yun, kapag take na, yun nagkakamali po ako," Maja narrated.

Despite this, the young actress said that her co-actors, especially Kris, were there to give her moral support.

"Yun, sinabihan nga po ako ni Tita Kris, ‘Relax lang.' Sabi niya sa akin, sobrang suwerte daw po namin, kaming lahat ni Jay-R [Siaboc] at saka ni Joem [Bascon], kasi di ba po, ang tagal nang di umaarte ni Ms. Susan 'tapos ngayon po umarte po siya ulit. So, sobrang thankful nga po namin dahil kasama po namin si Ms. Susan."

Patayin sa Sindak si Barbara is Maja's third horror-suspense project; the first two were the TV series Spirits and the movie Sukob. She was also included in the TV adventure series Pedro Penduko at mga Engkantao. With these projects, a reporter asked if she is now ready to accept the title "Princess of Horror Movies."

"Sosyal!" Maja reacted. "Ano po, siguro sobrang suwerte ko nga lang po na yun nga, kapag may mga horror films, horror TV shows, napapasali po ako. Hindi po. Ano lang po, wala pa naman po akong... Papaano ba? Si Tita Kris nag-blockbuster ng Feng Shui, ng Sukob, ako po, sa TV show nasasali lang po ako."
