A more sensual Maja Salvador will be seen in the tv remake of the Mel Chionglo film Nagsimula sa Puso.
Maja now faces a more mature character as she bids goodbye to her sweet roles. She will portray the role of Celina, an obedient daughter and an old-fashioned career woman whole life revolves in a routine. A change in her personality sparks once she meets the man of her dreams.
“I am very thankful na ipinaubaya sa akin ng network ang project na ito. I can say na ito na ang greatest break ko since pumasok ako sa showbiz and hopefully, with ‘Nagsimula sa Puso’, magsimula na rin ang iba’t-iba pang opportunity para sa ‘kin,” Maja said.
Maja was supposed to star in Moon River and the remake of Anna Liza but both projects were shelved by ABS-CBN. Instead of getting disappointed, Maja is grateful that her mother studio finally gave her an afternoon soap opera of her own and she considers “Nagsimula” as a milestone in her career.
In Nagsimula sa Puso, Maja will be paired off with one of the country’s youngest and rising leading man, Jason Abalos, who just showcased his acting talent in Eva Fonda and Kambal sa Uma, and the prince of Indie Films, Coco Martin who got rave reviews for his role as “Ramon” in Tayong Dalawa.
She revealed that she has a lot of “kissing scenes” and “bed scenes” with both Jason and Coco in the soap because the story calls for it. She promises a different kind of Maja will be seen by televiewers and that they will witness the complex emotions rooted in her character in which she gave her 100 percent.
Also starring in Nagsimula sa Puso is World Vision Ambassador Nikki Gil. Supporting cast includes Gloria Diaz, Buboy Garovillo, Jaclyn Jose, Laurice Guillen, Irma Adlawan, Ronnie Lazaro, Joseph Bitagcol and Nina Jose.
Directed by Malu Sevilla, Nagsimula sa Puso is premiering on October 12 under ABS-CBN’s Hapontastic block.
