It was her idea to coin the titles Team Sunrise and Team Sunset for “The Better Half” supporters. They are the followers who want her character Camille to be with her original husband Marco (portrayed by Carlo Aquino) and her present husband Rafael (JC de Vera).
According to Shaina Magdayao, “Actually, meron pa ring Team Pangga at Team Mahal. Nagbibigay sila ng mga opinyon nila sa Team Rafael o sa Team Marco. Kung sino ang dapat na piliin ni Camile sa nangyayari na ring mga gulo in her journey.
“I am really very fond of sunrise and sunset. Gaya rin ni Camille. Para kang nae-energize ka kapag nakikita mo na sila, kaya sa taping namin, nagwe-wait kami for the sun to set and ilang hours lang rest kami para makunan naman ang sunrise.
“Kapag pinupuri kami o binabati ng mga tao with the scenes we do, ibinabalik ko talaga sa Creative Team ng programa ang pasasalamat.”
The scenes they need to tackle are tension-filled now that more and more revelations have resurfaced. Will Camille and Marco’s marriage be finally annulled?
In her musings, has she ever thought of what is right and wrong as far as loving is concerned, in connection to her role here?
“Mahirap. Yes, there have been times na iniisip ko ‘yung tungkol sa dalawang relasyon. Magkaiba. Parehong maganda, like what Denise said. Ang hirap mag-desisyon, maski kami hindi pa namin alam where we are going. At alam naming pinag-iisipang masusi ng mga writers ito. Babalik ba si Camille kay Marco. Magmu-move on na ba si Rafael. Saan pupunta si Bianca?”
In spite of her draining schedule in doing Camille for “The Better Half,” Shaina finds the time to attend to her other businesses. The reason she says, not to ask about a lovelife.
“I am not seeing someone. I just want to focus muna with this Smile Cares Foundation na dumating sa akin to be able to help kids go to school. We will launch it sa June 29. Everything seems to be falling into place. We will be partnering with Dingdong Dantes’ Yes! Pinoy Foundation. And we are just so happy na may nag-donate na ng isang ektaryang lupa sa amin. Kaya, ang masasabi ko, ito ang nagpapasaya sa akin now.”
Maybe, this is her true calling. A long time ago, Shaina thought that she was destined to be a nun. But the series of events in her life took a different turn.
