If you’ve been online this past days then you probably came across a cut of that super intese wedding scene from the hit teleserye “Wildflower” featuring RK Bagatsing, Maja Salvador, and the rest of the stellar cast.
Everyone has been praising their performances especially Maja’s, who managed to stay unbelievably beautiful as she went hysterical over the events happening before her all while wearing a black wedding gown.
But what really suprised the netizens was RK, who apparently have always wanted to play as a kontrabida.
In an interview with Push, he revealed, “At first when I accepted the role [sa Wildflower] nong una sabi ko okay tingin ko kaya ko namang maging kontrabida because sabi ko pagtinatanong ako ng mga tao ano bang dream role mo, I never really thought of it pero sabi ko outright lang gusto kong maging kontrabdia. talaga.”
“Wala lang gusto kong maging iba, gusto kong ma-conquer ‘yung role na ‘yun,” shared RK.
But when first put on the set, RK admitted that he had a tough time delivering, feeling intimated by Maja.
“’Yung ginagawa na namin ‘yung first three weeks, first month namin, I was star struck kay Maja because Maja is one of the actresses na pinapanood ko when I was just starting out sa indie,” said RK.
He added, “Nakikita ko ‘yung trabaho niya and sabi ko I want to work with her someday. And then nong nagtatrabaho na ako sa kanya I felt that I was messing up the opportunity kasi hindi ko makuha ‘yung role ko.”
“At first, hindi ko ma-fully grasp ‘yung kailangan from me so sabi ko I’m blowing this up parang ganon ‘yung pressure grabe,” he explained.
But, of course, RK grew some confidence and started getting better and better. Well, it seems like everyone else noticed too.
