Maja Salvador is enjoying her romance with boyfriend Rambo Nuñez so much that she is not keen on making the big leap.
“Ayokong i-presssure ang lahat kasi masaya kami. Ini-enjoy namin ang pagiging mag-boyfriend and girlfriend. So, doon muna tayo,” she said in an interview.
A lot speculate that they’re altar-bound as photos of their vacation seemingly suggest a pre-nup shoot took place.
“‘Yun nga ang nakikita ng lahat pero baka hindi pa namin nakikita pareho. Natutuwa kami na ‘yun ang tingin ng lahat, na parang approved sa iyong lahat ‘yung relationship namin,” she said.
Is she ready to take the plunge?
“31 na ako so kung darating, kung papunta na tayo doon ay i-check natin,” she mused.
When someone said they will surely take their relationship into a more serious level such as marriage—as most couples who get a second chance at love do—-Maja countered she is not sold to the idea as “merong mga nagkakabalikan na hindi pa rin (nagkakatuluyan).”
Recall that her being focused on her work derailed their relationship nine years ago.
“Siyempre, bagets pa ako noon. I was just 21 years old, ang dami pang kailangang patunayan…”
Maja and Rambo posted photos of their Cuban trip recently, making their followers think they might have already shot their prenup there.
Nothing of that sort happened, Maja insisted.
“‘Di ba nauuso ‘yun so nakiuso kami sa mga city escapes na ‘yan. So noong nandoon na, sayang naman kesa puro selfie lang so kumuha kami ng photographer.
“Medyo na-awkward kami kasi parang pang-pre-nup na (ang shots) so tawang-tawa lang kaming dalawa.”
Maja will celebrate Christmas with her mom in Canada.
“New Year, sa family naman niya (Rambo), kasama ang brother ko,” she said. “Hindi namin makasama ang brother ko sa Canada kasi meron siyang work. Mas pinayagan siya ng New Year so New Year kasama ko ang brother ko sa Japan.”
Maja feels her “Wildflower” characters Lily Cruz and Ivy Aguas are a tad different from her Camila role on “Killer Bride.”
“Ang daming pagkakaiba. Kasi sa ‘Wildflower’ ay ang daming action scenes, ang daming pa-grand entrance, gown dito, pasabog. Dito kay Camila, pasabog sa emotion. Mas real ‘yung emotions ni Camila, ‘yung pain na pinagdadaanan niya ay inilalabas niya talaga.”
While Ivy and Lily are physical, her Camila role tends to be emotional.
“Mas challenging ito dahil ibang klase ng drama, ng emosyon ang naibibigay mo dito. Kasi hindi naman puwedeng isa lang ang ipapakita po natin. Nu’’ng ini-reveal na si Luna si Vida, ‘di ba dapat as Camila na ang tagal mo nang hinahanap si Vida. Pero noong kaharap ko si Luna, hindi ako maka-breakdown, hindi ako nanginig. Parang in-denial pa rin siya na ‘Siya ba talaga (ang anak ko)? Nararamdamam ko ba talaga na siya si Vida?’”
Incidentally, Camila (Maja), Vito (Geoff Eigenmann), Emma (Janella Salvador), and Elias (Joshua Garcia) will face the biggest battle of their lives as they take down Alice (Precious Lara Quigaman), who disguised herself as the feared killer groom, and make sure she finally meets her demise in the gripping remaining weeks of “The Killer Bride.”
The speculations behind the true identity of the killer groom finally ended last Friday (Dec. 13) after Alice was revealed as the person behind the masked murderer. But being exposed will not hinder Alice from putting all her evil ploys to work, especially her plans of revenge against Camila.
