After the series Precious Hearts Romances: Impostor, rising actress Maja Salvador is all set to show a different side in the 2011 teleserye Minsan Lang Kitang Iibigin, which also stars Coco Martin, Andi Eigenmann, as well showbiz veterans Lorna Tolentino, Tonton Gutierrez, and Amy Austria. The action-drama series will have the 22-year-old actress playing the role of an NPA rebel. “Bagong Maja talaga ang makikita nila kasi NPA ako dito so panibagongchallenge sa akin na sana magampanan ko ng maigi yung character na binigay nila sa akin. Na-excite ako na gumanap na NPA. Excited ako kasi bagong characterito, kakaibang role ito for me,” she shared with Push.com.ph during the ABS-CBN Trade Launch held last December 2 at the PICC.
Maja also admitted that she is looking forward to showing off her more athletic side in the series. “Kasi tapos na ako sa pag-de-daring, sexy, at comedy. Para naman hindi rin magsawa yung tao siguro. Excited ako sa mga gagawin naming action scenes,” she added. Maja and the cast underwent training in preparation for their roles as rebels. “Hanggang sa set may nagtre-train sa amin. Tinuruan kami kung paano humawak ng baril, ganun,” she revealed.
A visibly excited Maja also admitted she is looking forward to working again with Coco and sharing screen time with the veteran actresses in the cast. “Mabibigat ang mga artista dito, bigatin. Talagang malawak at mabigat din yung kuwento. Nandito lahat talaga. Sobrang nasasabik ako kasi may action ang gagawin ko. First time ko makaka-work si Miss Lorna and Miss Amy,” she said. Maja also had nothing but praises for Agua Benditaactress Andi. “Napakahusay niya. Ano pa bang masasabi natin? Napakahusay niya. Sa kuwento may rivalrykami pero sa totoong buhay parang kapatid ko talaga si Andi,” she said.
This coming holiday, the petite actress plans on going on a trip with her family. “Nagplaplano ako mag out-of-the-country with my family pero titingnan pa sa oras kung kakayanin kasi siyempre sa first quarter of 2011ipapalabas yung Minsan Lang Kitang Iibigin kaya busy ako. So yun nga, pinaplano pa namin kung saan. Kasi yun ang gusto kong Christmas gift ko na sa kanila,” she said.
