In an interview with Maja Salvador in Vice Ganda’s show, “Gandang Gabi Vice” aired last Sunday, February 4, 2018, she shared how she was able to conquer the viral Helicopter scene.

 

 

Maja shared how the act was meant to be done by a stunt double however, she insisted on doing it as she deemed the stunt as doable.

 

As she said, “Tama naman ‘yun, lahat sila, pinipigilan ako. Kaso, nagte-take ‘yung double. ‘Yung angat ng helicopter, mababa lang. So sabi ko, alam mo Direk, kaya ko ‘yan, ako na lang,” (Yes, the management did not want me to pursue the scene. But when the stunt double was doing it, the height of the helicopter was low. Ao then I said, Direk, I can do it, I’ll do it instead)

However, as she was doing the scene she said it became more difficult, “Nung umaangat na ng todo, sabi niya, ‘Stop! Stop!’. Siyempre maingay ‘yung helicopter ‘di ba? Maingay, sabi nung AD, ‘yung makikita ‘yung captain, ‘Up! Up!’ So napakataas ko,” (When the helicopter began lifting, he (the director) said ‘Stop! Stop!’. But then the helicopter’s loud isn’t it? Given the helicopter was really loud, when he saw the captain, he said, ‘Up! Up!’ So I was lifted so high up).
