After making her showbiz debut as a child star, she is one of the stars on Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit today. This is the result of years building her now successful career. Asintado, The Better Half and iWant’s original series “Past, Present, Perfect” are only some of her other recent works. So, to celebrate how far she has come, we asked her to revisit and recreate some old pictures!
Our timeline starts at a 25-year-old Shaina. It took a while for her recall when the photo was taken exactly, but she knew that it was for a Star Magic Catalogue. This was then followed by a snap from Kapamilya Text! more commonly known as KText, this was a SMS subscription that would send exclusive updates and daily updates to fans. “Magse-selfie ng napakarami tapos ise-send sa subscribers,” she remembered.
“Saan naman ‘to?” she wondered upon seeing the third selfie. Shaina could not help but notice that she resembled Loisa Andalio. Apparently, it was from 2008, around the time she was portraying Selene from Rounin. This was one of the early fantasy series by ABS-CBN. “Grabe ‘yung hirap na pinagdaanan namin sa show na ‘yan,” she recounted. Aside from all the flooding they had to deal with on set, they also had to endure intense fight scene while wearing costumes.
This was a blast from the past! “’Yan ang hirap kapag matagal ka na sa industriya,” she stated. Check out this video to see all the photos of Shaina Magdayao that was uncovered, including two from her childhood. And make sure to stay updated on her present with the latest episodes of Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit, Mondays to Fridays before It’s Showtime.
