Did John Lloyd Cruz feel awkward working with ex-girlfriend Shaina Magdayao for TV show?

John Lloyd Cruz on ex-girlfriend Shaina Magdayao: “Wala na talaga yun, e. Pagdating ko nga sa [Nathaniel], siya pa nga yung nag-welcome sa akin sa set.”




For John Lloyd Cruz, there’s no issue between him and ex-girlfriend Shaina Magdayao, which is why he did not hesitate to work with her for a TV project.

After their controversial breakup in 2012, John Lloyd and Shaina worked with each other this year for the ABS-CBN primetime series Nathaniel.

According to JLC, they’re both “grown-up” and he considers all of those issues as part of the past.

To date, John Lloyd is in a relationship with Angelica Panganiban while Shaina is currently single.

“Sobra akong nag-enjoy, napaka bait nila at napakagaan nilang katrabaho,” said John Lloyd during the One More Chance DVD and book launch held at Fairview Terraces.

JLC made a guest appearance on the Kapamilya show where Shaina is one of the mainstays.

He says about his Nathaniel co-stars: “May respeto sila sa mga artista, sa mga tao nila. It’s a kind of set na gusto mong mapabilang. Kasi hindi lang siya parang…di ba yung show ay tungkol sa kabutihan, sa pag-asa, pag nandun ka sa set nila, napakagaan at napakasaya nila kasama.

“Please don’t get me wrong ha. Hindi naman sila parang mga godly at santo doon, e. Pero, napakagaan at napaka-fluid lang ng trabaho. Kaya ako…maswerteng maswerte ako napasama ako sa teleserye na yun at na experience ko yung show na yun.”

How was it like working again with his ex-girlfriend Shaina?

John Lloyd joked, “Ay! Oo nga pala, buti ni-remind mo ako, baka ikaw na lang nakakaalala nun. Hahaha! Wala na naman yun, we’re all grown-up. Matagal na yun, saka wala naman talagang issue. Actually, noong nag-decide ako na mag-offer ng services ko rather ng trabaho to be a part ng Nathaniel, hindi ko naisip na…’Ooops teka lang, andiyan pala si Shaina.’

"Wala na talaga yun, e. Pagdating ko nga sa [Nathaniel], siya pa nga yung nag welcome sa akin sa set.”


Aside from this TV show, John Lloyd has also done an indie film with Piolo Pascual titled Hele Sa Hiwagang Hapis, a movie directed by Lav Diaz.

When it comes to billing, is that a concern for him?

John Lloyd quipped, “Basta bayaran n’yo lahat ng bill. Joke lang!”

The three-time Box Office King then turned serious as he answered, “Honestly hindi ko alam, hindi naman ako conscious sa kung ano man, kumbaga sa akin, una ay gawin mo muna ng maayos ang trabaho mo. Bahala na sila doon.”
