Maui the Sexy Pinoy Girl

2003 was the last year Maui was active in films. In April 2003, she starred with actress Katya Santos in the sex comedy Sex Drive, which was deeply inspired by the movie Y' Tu MaMa Tambien. Although it was blasted by critics for its pointless plot and sex scenes, Sex Drive made around almost P65 million domestically.

For her next movie, titled Ang Huling Birhen Sa Lupa (international title: The Last Virgin), Taylor had to work extra hard as she played a mentally retarded girl and had to live up to the acting prowess of Ara Mina and Jay Manalo, both veterans in the local film industry. She also had to go through rigorous training in order to think and act convincingly like a 10 year old girl (her character in the story is 16 years old) and had to prepare herself for a rape scene.
