In her latest vlog, Maja Salvador recalls working on her first showbiz project, the teleserye It Might Be You with John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo. Maja was a teenager at the time and regarded John Lloyd as her “tatay-tatayan.” They shared the same handler but were not yet the close friends that they are now.
The actress remembers one time on set when his teasing made her tear up. “Mapang-asar ‘yon e. Nakapag-bonding na kami pero may isang beses na ‘di ko talaga makakalimutan. Parang nangungulit ako tapos sabi niya, ‘Ang kulit mo. You don't belong here,’ sabi niya sa akin! Mangiyak-ngiyak talaga ako. After noon, bigla siyang tumawa. Sobrang lakas ng tawa pero affected ako.”
His teasing struck deep since Maja was having difficulty adjusting to the demands of showbiz at the time. “Dinamdam ko kahit alam kong joke kasi nandoon pa ang struggle kung gusto ko ang pinasok ko.” But it’s all good now! “Pero tingnan niyo ngayon, sobrang close kami. Sobrang love ko ‘yon. Tatay-tayan ko ‘yon.”
