Kapamilya actress Shaina Magdayao comes back in the world of light romantic-drama via iWant’s digital series “Past, Present, Prefect” which displays the beauty and pain of a high school puppy love; and the heartache of chasing one’s dreams.
The series starts with the story of a young Shantal who secretly pens down romantic poems for her crush, Daniel, a high school teacher who encouraged her to pursue a writing career. They have grown comfortable with one another by sharing the same love for literature. But, Shantal gets her teenage heart broken after confessing her feelings for Daniel.
Years after, Shantal is faced with adulthood dilemmas such as the struggles of taking her dreams into reality. Amidst Shantal’s writer’s block, someone from her past comes in the picture again – Daniel.
Shaina, who takes on the role of the adult Shantal, plays the Past, Present Challenge in TWBA in where she talked about the past and present people in her life.
She places Piolo Pascual’s photo in the “Present” box, saying “Andiyan pa rin siya, eh”.
On Bea Alonzo, Shaina has this to say, “She’s a big part of my past and who I am right now. I don’t think, hanggang past lang siya. Gusto ko siya dalhin sa present.” Although, Shaina admits she and Bea, who once was her best friend, haven’t still seen each other for a long time.
She drops Jodi Sta. Maria’s picture inside the “Present” box as well. “Hindi ko in-expect na magiging part siya ng aking present. We found a friend in each other”, Shaina relates.
The last photo is that of John Lloyd Cruz’s, her ex-boyfriend, whom she wants to leave in the “Past”. “Nahihiya ako na nabi-bring up ‘yung pangalan niya when I’m promoting something but I’m grateful that he’s part of my past”.
