Excited to know more about Shaina Magdayao? Well, check out the story below!
As we all remembered, Shaina Magdayao was only four years old when she starred in her first solo series “Lyra.” This is the only means she also went through the “awkward stage”, when child star finds it hard to transition from kiddie to grown-up roles, like any other kiddie stars.
“At a very young age, namulat ako na ito na ‘yung mundo ko. Para siyang sinubo sa’kin. I guess it’s destiny na nandito ako sa show business,” she said.
There is a time that it reached a point where playing goody two-shoes bored Shaina according to the latest celebrity update.
“Nawalan ako ng gana because puro pa-tweetums e. You know, puro pa-sweet, mabait. E hindi talaga ako ‘yung ma-love team na bata. From the very beginning gusto ko iba-iba ‘yung nakakapartner ko. I don’t wanna be stuck sa isang love team lang. E nahirapan ako that time ‘yun ang formula diba? Actually until now na may love team. Pero before sobrang strong no’n na ‘yun talaga ang formula,” she said.
In fact, resisting the showbiz tried and tested formula eventually took its charge on her.
“Meron din mga months na walang trabaho. So I had to just wait ‘til I turn 18 and then ‘yun pinayagan na ko to do more mature roles. I started with, the one with Piolo Pascual and Angel Locsin. ‘Yun ‘yung medyo start na ‘yun. At nagtuloy-tuloy na,” she explained.
For Shaina, the key to overcoming the child star “curse” is evolving.
“Actually nag-awkaward stage naman ako, yes. But ginusto ko kasi siguro to evolve so I had to push for it. I wanted to do more mature roles. And I did mature roles when I turned 18,” she said.
The Kapamilya star is very thankful because unlike others who started young in showbiz, she remains in the industry she once considered her playground.
“In a way iniisp ko na lang imbes na parang feeling ko may na-miss out ako, I just wanna be thankful kasi at a very young age andami kong na-experience na hindi na-experience ng normal na bata. And until now I’m still here,” she said.
The 24 years old actress confessed that there is no lack or showbiz didn’t steal her childhood.
“Lacking? Wala naman. Kasi kung anuman siguro ‘yung kinulang, napunana naman ng ibang bagay. And for me this is my passion. I love acting. I love what I do. So I guess if you love what you do, walang kulang doon. More of fulfillment pa nga ‘yung feeling mo,” she said.
Meanwhile, Shaina’s wish is to be able to experience school again first-hand.
“I’m praying na maramdaman ko naman ‘yung feeling life sa university. Actually that’s my wish. I look up to Rica Paralejo and Agot Isidro who went back to school nung medyo naglie-low na sila. You know this is not naman forever. Right now na parang todo pa siya, trabaho muna, take advantage of it. But when time comes, I did home study sa Angelicum. Una, Montessori I was able to do regular school until first year high school. And when I did home schooling, I didn’t enjoy it,” the Juan dela Cruz star confessed.
