Actress Janella Salvador took to Instagram yesterday, January 20, to express her gratefulness towards Maja Salvador.
Janella composed a tribute for Maja following the ending of their hit ABS-CBN drama series, The Killer Bride.
In the serye, Janella played the role of Emma while Maja gave life to the iconic role of Camila. And in the same series, the two share a mother-daughter relationship.
On her Instagram, Janella posted a photo where she appeared holding Maja’s hand.
“My beautiful Camila.” Janella began. “I don’t know where to start. I might cry while composing this message.”
She thanked Maja for all the things she has done for her such as “making an effort to understand” her personality, which Maja, in her own post described as introverted.
“Thank you for believing in me from the very start. Thank you for making an effort to understand my personality and for loving me. Thank you for always making me feel like you’ve got my back no matter what.”
Janella also mentioned that her relation to Maja, who is her tita in real life, was made more meaningful now because of what they shared on and off-screen of their teleserye.
“I’ve been in showbiz for a decade and one of the most frequent questions people ask me is this: ‘How are you related to Maja Salvador?’
She continued, “I used to say, ‘I’m not sure, but i think she’s my tita.’ Now that question just became a whole lot more meaningful to me.
“Growing up, i’ve always been independent but now i feel like I have a real sister. You are now my ate, my tita, & my Mama Camila. You are family. ♥️ I LOVE YOU!
“PS thank u for feeding me all the time too & yes i did cry while typing all of that.”
Maja, for her part, penned a sweet message for Janella by sharing how proud she is of Janella’s success in The Killer Bride.
She wrote on her recent IG post, “My Emma ♥️ @superjanella I'M SO PROUD OF YOU!!!SUPER!!!”
“Naiisip ko ngayon yung nag workshop tayo na andami nating napag usapan tapos ngayong natapos na ang teleserye natin #EMMA na ang tawag sayo ng lahat. Nakaka Proud....”
She thanked Janella for allowing her to get to know her pamangkin even more.
She said, “Salamat nagtiwala ka sa akin nung sinabi kong magtutulungan tayo... salamat dahil alam kong introvert ka pero sa set natin nalalabas mo yung pagka kulit mo.
“Masaya akong makita yung side mo na yun. maswerte akong mas nakilala pa kita lalo.”
Maja ended her lenghty caption by encouraging Janella to never doubt herself and her skills because a lot of people admire her for who she is.
“Please lang huwag kang mag doubt na sa sarili mo dahil magaling ka! magtiwala ka lang sa sarili mo.
“Dahil kami malaki ang tiwala namin at paghanga sayo! SHINE MY EMMA! I love you My Emma! SUPER! ♥️.”
The Killer Bride aired its finale episode last night, January 20. It was replaced by A Soldier’s Heart that stars Gerald Anderson.
Congratulations, Maja and Janella! Your characters, Emma and Camilla, will be missed!
