After joining Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10 last year where she was introduced as “Ang Rising Darling ng Quezon City,” Shanaia Gomez talked about her first acting project in the latest season of Click, Like, Share where she plays the role of Belle Mariano’s sister in the episode.
“I loved working with Belle. She’s so great. She’s so fun and I feel like I learned a lot from her. Especially because this is my first acting experience and I’m with Belle. She’s super talented so siguro one thing that was a memorable moment is just watching her work is already enough for me. Just like watching her do her thing. It was really great,” she revealed during the Click, Like, Share media conference last January 6.
Coming straight from the popular reality show where she was evicted last month, Shanaia said she made sure to prepare herself mentally for her first project in showbiz.
“Well I think that I really did of course. I was told to always ask for help when I need help. If I need guidance, I know that I have people there to guide me. Of course I want to do my best. I want to try my best for everything and yun lang, I just asked for help. Kahit sa Tagalog din nahirapan ako (laughs). But of course it’s such a great experience especially with direk Andoy (Ranay) and working with different actors. I just feel really grateful and blessed. I feel like it really comes with experience so I’m really blessed that this is the project that I got. Working with direk Andoy was a really, really great experience. I loved it so much and sana there are more coming soon,” she explained.
In their episode, Shanaia and Belle wake up one day having swapped bodies and discover new things about their lives not seen on social media.
“I think it’s really relevant ngayon kasi naman everything is online. You see posts of these people online and you think they have a perfect life, ganun. So it’s a really great way to understand that things really aren’t what they seem. And it talks about valuing your family and why family is so important which I think is a really great thing to talk about,” she admitted.
Click, Like, Share streams on iWantTFC starting January 12. With new episodes available every Wednesday, 8 pm. Starring Belle Mariano and Shanaia Gomez. Directed by Andoy Ranay.
