- Maja Salvador's role in 'Wildflower' is not an easy thing for her
- She admits that English lines are not her strength
- Revealing that she asks help from co-actors when it comes to her English lines
One of Maja's lines in her on going teleserye 'Wildflower' was "Black is out. Gold is in. Just like gold, I am indestructible." This will be remembered by viewers after its viral reception when it was aired last October.
But the scene, where Lily's (Maja) grand entrance down a stairway heralded by a pyrotechnic, is memorable for the 29-year-old actress for another reason.
KAMI learned that in her interview on "Gandang Gabi Vice" aired last Sunday, Maja said she was aware that delivering English lines were not her strength.
"'Di ba sa totoong buhay hindi naman ako mapag-Ingles?" she said.
Vice Ganda also asked her on how she always come up with a convincing performance as Lily Cruz/Ivy Aguas.
"Siyempre hindi nga si Maja Salvador 'yun, si Lily Cruz, so kailangan ko mapaniwala ang mga tao na CEO talaga ako at Inglesera kahit papaano." she answered.
"Hindi ko malilimutan! October 4 'yon, October 5 birthday ko," she added, referring to the filming of the "I am indestructible" scene. "Sabi ko, 'Birthday na birthday ko, English ang ipapa-linya sa akin?' At hindi lang 'I am indestructible' 'yun, ha. Sabi ko, 'Paano ko ba hahati-hatiin 'to?' Buong araw, 'Black is out, gold is in!'" she added.
ABS-CBN previously reported that she also shared that while she finds having to deliver English lines challenging, she sees this as an opportunity to keep learning as an actress.
"'Pag may nakita na akong English 'yung linya ko, 24 hours ko 'yon pinag-aaralan. Tapos 'yung diction ko, pagdating sa set, 'Ate Aiko, paano ba 'to? Tito Pip?'" she said, referring to her "Wildflower" co-stars Aiko Melendez and Tirso Cruz III, both screen veterans.
"Kasi 'di ba, 'pag may English na mga eksena, mag-abang ka na sa Twitter, kasi lahat perfect," Maja added, referring to critics of her diction.
"Kahit na may mga gano'n, OK din kasi siyempre, gusto mo matuto rin talaga, at gusto mo bigyan ng tamang pronunciation 'yung mga [lines]." she added.
Aiko Melendez, who was being interviewed alongside Maja on "Gandang Gabi Vice," attested to the younger actress' dedication to improving her craft.
"One thing nice about her: She knows 'yung mga weaknesses niya, pero 'yung weaknesses niyang 'yon, gusto niya gawing strength some day," Aiko said.
KAMI admires Maja on how she accepts her own weakness and keeps on learning it.
