Shaina Magdayao revealed that despite of being a Kapamilya for years, she originally started her career in GMA network at age of six.
She also clarified that unlike the reports, she is now celebrating her 25 years in showbiz.
The 30 year old actress also recalled how GMA believed in her as a child star.
“One year with GMA and I will always be grateful for GMA. Dahil kung hindi dahil sa kanila, malamang wala ako dito,” she said.
“And they trusted me agad, hindi ako dumaan sa reality show, auditions, wala. As in they just offered Lira to me at 6. Kaya nga lahat to parang, ano talaga, faith. Kumbaga isinubo sa akin. So, I guess dapat alagaan ko, because, wala, its my world and its really part of my life.”
When asked why she kept on being loyal on ABS CBN despite of endless rumors of network transfer, Shaina explained that her love for the network will always be unconditional because of the countless times she was helped and guided by everyone in the company.
“Gaya nga ng sabi ko, marami namang tumulong sa’kin along the way. And hindi ko ito parang ginapang lang mag isa or ng family o. Sobrang maraming tumulong sa akin. That’s why I’m very grateful sa kahit na ano.. kahit na sinong naka trabaho ko.
“Yes, I started in GMA when I was six, I transferred when I was seven, tapos tuloy-tuloy na. Yun, ang hanggang ngayon, andito pa rin.”
Shaina recently bagged the 46th Metro Manila Film Fest (MMFF) Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film Tagpuan.
“It was really unexpected. Sa sobrang unexpected hindi nga ako umattend nung award’s night online dahil hindi nga ako umasa. Siguro at this point of my career, sobrang bonus na lang yung mga recognition.”
