Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit is ready to kick the morning drama up a notch. And joining their cast to help is Shaina Magdayao! The actress will be portraying nurse Grace Andrada. This will be her first light drama project since 2015’s Nathaniel.
“Basta alam ko na nasa tama, hindi ako takot na lumaban, and ganoon din si Grace,” Shaina compared herself to the character. They share the same righteousness as well as a deep affection for the youth. The fact that she gets to be one of the good guys, rather than a kontrabida, makes her even more excited to be part of the series.
Initially, she was not sure if she could accept the role because of a conflict in her schedule. But she felt that this part was meant to be hers, “Naniniwala kasi ako na ‘pag para sa’yo talaga, para sa’yo.” Luckily, they managed to work out a plan where she will start shooting for Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit right after filming her movie.
“Nakakatuwa because I see myself in these kids,” Shaina continued. As a former child herself, it is no surprise that she is more than willing to work with kids. Some pieces of advice that she has already offered Sophia Reola, who plays Mikmik, is to always listen to the director and everyone behind the cameras. “Kasi sila ‘yung nakakakita,” she explained.
The veteran actress also added that the main goal for actors should be to do a good job. Aspiring to receive praises and awards can also be important, but they will only come as a result of truly working hard.
