Good news to all fans of television series “Alyna.”
The show's lead star, Shaina Magdayao, announced on "The Buzz" that the hit afternoon series will be extended until February of next year.
"Itong last taping po ay in-announce na na-extend kami hanggang January. Dapat hanggang November lang ang show. Na-extend na naman kami hanggang February po so mayroon na naman kaming taping. So marami na naman po ang may trabaho ngayong Christmas. So, maraming maraming salamat po," Magdayao said.
She said she is grateful to the public for their overwhelming support, adding that it was unexpected.
Aside from the viewers, Magdayao also thanked the management of ABS-CBN and her show's directors, Eric Reyes and Cathy Garcia-Molina, for doing a great job.
"Sobrang iba sila ng style pero nagwo-work. Kasi noong kay direk Cathy parang movie ang pinapanood nila. Yong kay direk Eric naman na-miss nila ‘yong teleserye feel, yong primetime feel sa afternoon ay nae-experience nila,” she said.
"I'm very honored na pinagkakatiwala ng ABS-CBN at binigyan kami ng ganoong kagagaling na mga director," Magdayao added.
Christmas with John Lloyd
Three days before Christmas, Magdayao said she wished to have a good and private relationship with her real-life boyfriend, John Lloyd Cruz.
Magdayao is not asking any material things from Cruz.
" I think ang importante ay ang trust, respect and love for each other. So, sana ay magtuloy-tuloy lang yon. I think ‘yon ang pinaka-importante. Siguro ‘yon lang ang hihilingin ko," Magdayao said.
"Sana kapalit lahat ng mga pinagdaanan namin ay ang dami naman naming blessings individually. So, sana ay magtuloy tuloy pa," she added.
Currently, Magdayao is busy promoting her Metro Manila Film Festival entry, “Shake, Rattle & Roll XII.” Cruz, on the other hand, is busy taping for ABS-CBN's hit series "Imortal," with Angel Locsin as his leading lady.
