Coco, Maja reunite for 'Ang Probinsyano'

Maja Salvador is the leading lady of Coco Martin in the remake of "Ang Probinsiyano," which is based on the 1997 movie of the same title originally portrayed by late King of Philippine Cinema Fernando Poe Jr.

Dreamscape announced during its press conference yesterday, August 17, that the "Coco-Jam" team-up will headline a teleserye five years after their last project together.

Maja confirmed that she already accepted the project long before the first wave of shooting for "Ang Probinsyano" began. Dreamscape also revealed that they really waited for Maja to finish her recent hit soap "Bridges of Love" on primetime.

Maja expressed her pleasure over working with Coco again, "Happy po ako na susuportahan ko siya at magiging leading lady niya."

She shared, "Si Coco noong nagkita kami sa pictorial namin, parang sobrang naiilang pa siya. Parang first time namin magsama ulit."

Meanwhile, when asked about how she sees Coco,  Maja said, "Boyfriend-material pa ba 'yun? Hindi ba husband-material na? Ang pagkakakilala ko sa kanya ay sobrang mahal niya ang pamilya niya, lalong-lalo na ang lola niya. Tapos sobrang madasalin siya at grabe rin 'yung pag-aalaga niya sa trabaho."

Coco said "Excited ako kasi syempre ang ganda niya at wala siyang boyfriend!"

Consequently, Maja answered if there is something to look forward to aside from their on-screen team up, "Naka-lock pa po ang puso ko. Kalma lang po tayo! Bahala na. Tignan na lang po natin, kasi ngayon ang focus ko ay trabaho muna."

On the other hand, Dreamscape clarified that the role that was announced initially for Maja is a different role to what was assigned to Angeline Quinto who is no longer part of the cast because of the conflict with her schedule and the shooting. The latter, however, may join the show when she's already available.

Moreover, veteran actress Susan Roces, Poe's widow, will take the role as the grandmother of Coco.
