As the latest addition to Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit, fans will get to see Shaina Magdayao as the caring nurse Grace. This role should be a breath of fresh air for Kapamilyas after her series of feisty and dramatic portrayals. But there is no denying that she is talented both as a bida and kontrabida. So, during her visit on Kapamilya Chat, we asked the actress to reenact some of her best lines from previous teleseryes!
“Pinaglaban kita. Hindi nga lang ako nagtagumpay pero pinaglaban kita,” she said to Jake Cuenca’s character in the 2012 drama Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo. She will never forget the scenes they shot in Doha, Qatar. It was winter at the time, but they had to act like it was summer. “You would think hindi lumalamig doon pero sobrang lamig,” she described the desert temperature. Nevertheless, the on-screen catfights must go on.
“At kung ako naman ang teacher mo, ipapasa kita sa English composition dahil napakagaling mong gumawa ng kwento,” she retaliated against Denise Laurel’s character on The Better Half from 2017. Shaina revealed that Denise is actually very sweet in real life, “sobrang mabait ‘yan as in nahihirapan siya kapag ingungudngud niya ko o kaya sasabunutan niya ko.” This was a heavily emotional project, but they never failed to support their co-stars. “We handle each other with care kahit na may sampalan,” she remembered. At the end of the day, their entire cast was family.
For the final scene, Samanth from 2018’s Asintado made an appearance. “Sarap ngudngudin ni Samantha,” Shaina thought after watching the scene.
