TayaJELA Cuenca is elated to be part of Viva Maximum Crush girls along with AJ Raval and Angela Khang. Their trio of sexy beauties was formed after they made the Vivamax erotic thriller, “Taya”, a bonafide hit.

“I’m so thankful to Viva be given this opportunity to be part of Vivamax Crush,” she says. “Ang laki ng naging impact ng success ng ‘Taya’ sa career ko. Pati followers ko sa social media, biglang dumami, sobra. Kaya salamat sa Viva anumang narating man namin ngayon.”

So she’s ready to take on more sexy flicks? “Actually, hindi madali maghubad for us, kasi di naman namin talaga ginagawa ‘yun. But as an actress, we have to do what the script requires. Pero alam naman naming hindi lang ito ang project na darating sa amin. We believe hindi lang ito ang gagawin namin kasi marami pa kaming puedeng ipakita at hindi lang ang katawan namin.”

How did her family react to her going sexy? “I didn’t tell my parents na gagawa ako ng sexy movie. Kasi I now live independently. Nalaman na lang nila nang ipalabas na. Siempre nagulat sila, pero wala na silang magagawa kundi suportahan ako sa career ko. Actually, mas nauna pa nga silang manood ng movie sa Vivamax kaysa sa akin at sila ang nagkuwento sa’kin ng napanood nila.”

Would she be willing to form a girl group with AJ and Angeli? “Okay lang, kasi naging maganda talaga ang bonding naming tatlo while shooting ‘Taya’, so hindi na kami mahihirapan mag form ng sarili naming group. Hindi ako ganun kagaling sumayaw but I believe na lahat naman, napag-aaralan.”

Who among today’s actresses does she admire? “Si Liza Soberano, kasi she looks perfect. Parang goddess ang dating, ang lakas ng impact niya.”

And who among today’s actors would she like to work with? “Si Ian Veneracion, kasi bata pa ako I really admire him na as he’s a very good looking guy. Ang ganda ng tindig niya and I’m sure even other girls would want to be paired with him. Also, I really prefer older guys kasi I know I will learn a lot from them.”

How does she deal with bashers? “Ako kasi, I just focus on the positive and not on bashers na puro kanegahan. If they don’t like us, so what? Marami namang ibang nagkakagusto sa amin. Kapag negative ang sinasabi, I just ignore, wala akong pakialam.”

How did she start in showbiz? “I started with modeling and in joining pageants. But ever since, nagbi-business din ako kasi tapos ako ng culinary arts and business management. I’m in the food business selling sausage, corned beef and other meat products. We don’t know kung hanggang kailan tayo rito sa showbiz so dapat, pinaghahandaan.”

Does she have a boyfriend? “Yes, non-showbiz, but hindi siya hadlang siya sa career ko. Puro support lang siya sa akin, anuman ang gagawin ko. Hindi nanghihimasok.”

Is she willing to do full frontal scenes? “Naku, ayoko naman nung all out at wala ng matitira sa ‘yo, na pati buong kaluluwa mo ipapakita mo na. Gusto ko namang may matira pa rin para sa sarili ko. Later on, I want to try serious drama and also action. As of now, I’m just thankful sa blessing na itong dumating sa akin and I will appreciate up to hanggang kailan siya magla-last.”
