Maja Salvador original choice for Maine Mendoza role in ABS-CBN film?


MAJA SALVADOR reveals that she was the original choice to portray the lead actress in the movie Isa Pa With Feelings, starring Maine Mendoza and Carlo Aquino.

“Isa Pa With Feelings”, a movie produced by ABS-CBN Films’s Black Sheep productions, was top-billed by Maine Mendoza and Carlo Aquino. It was shown in October 2019.

The 31-year-old actress then revealed that she and Gerald were supposed to top-bill Isa Pa With Feelings.

Maja disclosed, “Una kasi, tinanggap ko yun, una wth JC Santos, then hindi pwede si JC.

“Tapos biglang Gerald daw, then okay lang din ako, hanggang hindi nag-push through yung project.”

“Isa Pa With Feelings” revolved around Mara (Maine), a frustrated architect who falls in love with her deaf next-door neighbor and sign-language instructor Gali (Carlo).

In other words, said Maja, she is still willing to do a project with ex-boyfriend Gerald “as long as maganda yung script.”

Maja also talked about the success of her recently concluded Kapamilya series, The Killer Bride.

Maja said she was happy with the outcome of her show.

“Sobrang blessed talaga dahil sinong mag-aakala na, after Wildfl ower, akala ko, hindi mamahalin ng mga tao yung mga bagong characters or bagong role na gagawin ko.

“Pero, ayun nga, mula umpisa hanggang matapos, grabe yung suportang natanggap ko.”

Maja also revealed that it was her request to have her character Camila dela Torre get killed and become a vengeful ghost a week before The Killer Bride’s final episode.

She explained, “Oo, actually nirequest ko yun na mamatay.

“Yun pala, isa din sa gustong mangyari ng writers and ng creatives.

“Kasi mas gusto namin realidad, ganun yung pupuntahan.”

As for Maja’s next project, the Kapamilya actress said that a movie has already been pitched to her.

If plans push through, the project will reunite her with a female actress she has already worked with in the past.

“May pinitch sa akin na movie the other day. Hopefully, kapag natanggap ng isa kong makakasama, e, magtuluy-tuloy.

“Muling balikan namin, balikan?! But hindi siya guy, it’s a girl.

“But dapat nga hindi ako nagbibigay ng hint kasi siyempre hindi ko pa alam!”


WILL THIS be the look of one of the villains of Voltes V: Legacy?

Noel Flores, the costume designer of Voltes V’s Pinoy live action series, gave a glimpse of one of the characters of the Pinoy version.

On Facebook today, February 4, Flores posted a portion of his illustration of a character named Kazarin Rii.

Flores wrote in his caption, “Fine… It’s a take two for the Robotics engineer, Kazarin Rii.

“Volting in after a week.”

Other than the caption, Flores did not divulge any information about Voltes V and the character in his illustration.

According to Voltes V’s Wikipedia page, Kazarin Rii is the Japanese name of Zandra, one of the Boazanian enemies of the Voltes team.

Zandra is the robotics adviser of the Boazanians and the personal adviser of Prince Zardoz, the commander-in-chief of the Boazanian Invasion Forces.

Zandra later falls in love with Prince Zardoz, and at the end, gives her own life to save the Boazanian prince.

GMA-7, in co-production with Voltes V producer TOEI Animation, is set to produce a Pinoy live action series titled Voltes V: Legacy.

The teaser of Voltes V: Legacy was launched during GMA-7’s 2020 New Year Countdown.

Voltes V: Legacy, the Pinoy live action series, is helmed by Mark Reyes, the director of the iconic Kapuso fantasy series Encantadia.
