Shaina Magdayao on finding love: 'I'm just waiting for the right person'


051613-shaina_main.jpgShaina Magdayao has her hands busy working on the hit Primetime Bida series Juan Dela Cruz and shooting for the much-anticipated Star Cinema action flick On The Job which top-bills Piolo Pascual who is currently being romantically linked to her. Aside from Piolo, Shaina has also been reported to be spending time getting to know Sam Milby and director Lino Cayetano after her split from John Lloyd Cruz last year.

Nahihiya na ako kung kani-kanino niyo ako nili-link, nakakahiya naman sa kanila. Kung sa kanila manggagaling, siguro dapat sa kanila manggaling yun, hindi sa akin at saka parang na-se-stress tuloy ako maging single kasi parang ang daming issues, ang daming mga nili-link na mga lalake. Nakakahiya naman sa kanila kasi gusto lang naman nila makipagkaibigan, baka nabibigyan lang ng kulay,” she admitted.

The 24-year-old actress said she is flattered to be linked to so many sought-after bachelors but she refuses to confirm if they are indeed all courting her at the moment. Shaina said she is open to having a love life but is not rushing into a relationship right now. “If it’s the right person, hindi natin masasabi. So naghihintay lang ako para sa tamang tao. Parang mas magandang sa kanila manggaling, ano ba yun (laughs). Nagpapasalamatako kasi na-a-appreciate nila ako. Naging director ko si Lino sa Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo. Siya na lang tanungin ninyo. Si Samuel kasama ko recently, magkaibigan naman kami. Kasama ko siya sa movie, siya yung fiancée ni Bea (Alonzo). Wala, parang nakikipag-kaibigan lang naman talaga sila,” she explained.

Even though she said she really wants to just focus on her career this year, Shaina said having a love life is still part of her priority list. “Oo naman, parang napaka-hopeless naman ng case ko kung wala yun. Nangangarap tayo at naghihintay nga for that right person kasi gaya ng sabi ko, meron pa tayong takot, meron pa tayong doubts pero kapag dumating yung tamang tao na yun, tatanggalin niya lahat ng takot and doubts. And will make you believe in falling in love again. I am ready but I’m just waiting for the right person. Kasi kasabay ng gusto mong isipin na ready ka na umibig muli, natatakot ka pa, hindi mawawala yung takot na yun. Pero siguro nga pag nakilala ko na yung tao na yun at dumating na siya sa buhay ko, baka ‘hello’ pa lang niya ay matanggal na lahat ng takot ko di ba? ‘You had me at hello (laughs),’” she shared.

With On The Job having a cast that also includes Gerald Anderson and Angel Aquino, Shaina said she has no problem with regards to billing. “Sila na yung bahala dun. Ako, malagay lang yung pangalan ko masaya na ako (laughs). Yung Star Cinema na bahala dun. I think more than enough na nakasama ako sa movie,” she said.

Shaina also denied that she was just a last-minute replacement for the role originally intended for Angelica Panganiban in another still untitled Star Cinema movie later this year. “Alam niyo klinaro ko yun para hindi na maging issue pa. Pero I’m not so sure kung ano dapat yung role niya pero yung role ko po ay dagdag. Kasi ako yung lumalabas na youngest, lima kami pero ako yung bunso na babae kaya nagpapasalamat din ako kasi once they told me nga na kasama ako sa movie, inisip ko parang totoo ba yan, ang gagaling nung mga kasama ko, nandiyan si Toni Gonzaga, si Bea Alonzo, si Angel Locsin tapos si Enchong Dee kaya sabi ko ano ba yan, parang ayoko muna maniwala. It’s such an honor, natutuwa ako sa mga proyekto na ginagawa ko ngayon kasi hindi biro, malalaking mga proyekto,” she said.

The pretty mestiza also credited her projects for her slimmer figure. “Kailangan kasi lahat kami pinapapayat dun sa movie, lahat kami,” she added.
