Viewers nationwide tuned in to what could be one of the grandest and most show stopping comeback on Philippine television as Maja Salvador finally CAME out as Lily Cruz in ABS-CBN’s hit teleserye “Wildflower” last Tuesday (Oct 10).
Maja’s scene stealing entrance wearing a gold gown instantly set social media ablaze as the show trended on Twitter worldwide. Netizens were also quick to share funny memes about the talked about episode.
From a national TV rating of 33.8% last Monday (Oct 9), nationwide viewership got even stronger and the series hit its new all-time high national TV rating of 35.2% last Tuesday, which is double that of its rival program that only scored 17.1%, based on data from Kantar Media. This is the highest TV rating a program airing in the 6PM slot has reached in recent years.
“Thank you Lord! We give back the glory to you. I am so proud of my “Wildflower” family, to the whole cast, writers, creative team, directors, staff and crew. I salute everyone for a job well done. All the tiring and sleepless nights paid off!” said Maja.
But despite all the successes the show has achieved, Maja admitted that she still feels the pressure each time she does a scene.
“Pressure will always be there and must always be there because that’s what challenges us to do better. Never ever be complacent. Always give your best,” she explained.
“Wildflower” first created buzz with its “wildest wedding” episodes where Ivy Aguas walked down the aisle in a black wedding gown. The iconic scene surprised viewers and became an instant talk of the town.
Now that Ivy is dead and Lily is about to continue the fight, Maja gave viewers an idea on what to expect from her new character.
“She is braver and fiercer than Ivy Aguas! “Lily will definitely step up her game since she is now free to be her true self. Feisty, but with a heart especially for her family and the people of Ardiente,” she shared.
What’s next in Lily’s plans to destroy the Ardientes? How will the ruling clan fight back? Who is Red Dragon?
