MANILA - Maja Salvador made a mark among viewers through "Wildflower" not only for her campy confrontations and daring action sequences, but also for her portrayal in heartbreaking scenes that show precisely why her character Lily Cruz turned unforgiving and vengeful as Ivy Aguas.
One memorable scene, which also became viral on social media, was Lily discovering the dead body of her second mother, Carlota, inside her home.
Salvador's acting, tightly framed and with no accompanying musical score, proved to be a heartbreaking sight for viewers of the primetime hit.
Box-office superstar Vice Ganda was among those viewers. So when the comedian guested Salvador on his eponymous late-night talk show "Gandang Gabi Vice," he made sure to personally commend the actress on her performance.
This led to an apparently impromptu re-enactment of the "Wildflower" scene, but not with Salvador as Lily. Instead, she gave directions as the "director" to Vice Ganda, who expectedly made a hilarious spoof of Salvador's acting.
