“Ate Shine is one of the most generous, kindest and undoubtedly one of the BEST actresses we have in the Philippines.
“I was so lucky to have the privilege of working with her in my first lead teleserye EVER and I'm still so honored now - to be working with her on both our FIRST seryes in ABS-CBN! We are so lucky to have you!! Love you, ate!”
In the comments section, Sunshine replied to Janine and said, “nini i got your back then and Ate will always be here for you alam mo yan. Love you and happy to be doing our first together.”
