PNS — AT the presscon of “Precious Heart Presents Alyna,” we were asked to focus on the show but we told Shaina Magdayao that it’s the best time for her to say her piece about the scandalous vaginismus rumor circulating about her and John Lloyd Cruz so all the writers present can present her side. “I sincerely want to thank all of you who defended me and John Lloyd about this issue from the bottom of my heart,” she says. “It’s sick and I don’t know kunsaan parte ng isip ng nagpasimula nito niya nakuha ‘yun. It must be the most outrageous tsismis in the industry. Napanood niya siguro sa ‘Grey’s Anatomy’. And kung totoo nga yun, pupunta ba naman kami sa isang ospital when we we’re public figures? Di parang kami pa nagpakalat ng ganyang tsismis. Talagang walang ka-sense-sense ang tsismis na ‘yan. I know malalampasan ko ito and it’ll make me a stronger person.”
The director of “Alyna,” FM Reyes, says they salute Shaina for being strong about it. “Her work was not at all affected by the nasty rumor and we’re all in awe of her after each take,” he says.
“Alyna” is Shaina’s first daring role as she plays a woman impregnated by Sid Lucero, who’s already married to Kaye Abad. She finds out that the name, Dominic del Carmen which Sid is using actually belongs to Jason Abalos. “I first directed Shaina as a child star in ‘Marinella’,” adds Direk FM. “A project like ‘Alyna’ is long overdue for her as she’s a very intelligent actress who delivers what you ask her to do. Di matatawaran ang talent niya.”
Although she goes sexy, Shaina doesn’t show any skin. “Di naman puedeng sobrang sexy kasi we’ll air in the afternoon, replacing ‘Impostor’ starting this Monday,” she says. “But I have love scenes here with both Sid and Jason na ngayon ko pa lang ginawa.”
How is it working with both of them? “I’ve worked with Jason in ‘Kambal sa Uma’ so comfortable na kami. Si Sid ngayon pa lang. But it’s exciting to work with them kasi pareho sila magaling.”
