Artista Academy finalist Shaira Mae wishes to work with Daniel Matsunaga and Daniel Padilla

.


Being a dramatic actress is not as simple as she initially thought.

Artista Academy finalist Shaira Mae related, “Yung during the eksena po nun, naramdaman ko po talaga siya na normal yung emosyon na umano sa ‘kin… na lumabas sa ‘kin.

“Ang akala ko na tama yung ginawa ko, makatulong yun, pero nung pinanood ko siya, hindi po pala…”

She was referring to her performance on the October 20 episode of the show, where the three female finalists— including Sophie Albert and Chanel Morales— were given the opportunity to work with Tirso Cruz III.

It was, she described, a “magandang experience.”

Shaira added, “Napaka-willing po siyang tulungan ako… Nagsa-suggest kung ano gagawin sa eksena. Nag-enjoy po ako.”

But when it was time to hear the comments, this young lady who hailed from Las Piñas was told, “Gamitin yung expressive eyes ko daw.”

And how did she take the criticisms hurled at her acting?

"Di po mawawala yung medyo ma... parang malungkot ka. Siyempre po, iniisip mo po, binigay mo yung best mo. Pero hinanda ko na rin po sarili ko sa ganun. Part po siya ng pagiging artista."

So instead of dwelling on the "negative," she let optimism take over.

“Halimbawa na lang po, sa pag-iyak o yung paghugot ng emotions ko, medyo mas madali, kasi yung sa past po ng family namin.

"Siyempre po, hindi maiiwasang mag-away yung mom and dad ko. May mga issues lang dati na naka-relate ako nung nasa eksena na. Malaking bagay din po yun."



READY FOR THE BIG NIGHT? A few days before the awards night, which is set to happen on October 27, "sobrang bigat ng nararamdaman ko."

Nevertheless, "Handa po akong masungkit yung Best Actress."

If she wins, how does she plan to make her mark in showbiz?

A brief pause before answering, "Siguro po, magre-research po ako ng mga hindi ko pa nagagawang bagay na ikagugulat nila, na ikagugulat din ng sarili ko na kaya ko palang gawin ‘to.

"Kasi usually, yung last na pinerform ko na nagpapasok sa akin sa top 6, tulong po yun ng mga tita ko, ng mga pinsan ko, na sabi nila, ito daw sayawin ko. Mag-Latina daw ako na mag-ballroom ako, mag-salsa.

"Pero sabi ko, ’Hindi ko kaya, hindi ako marunong.’

"Pero triny ko. Parang nag-research talaga ako na kahit na hindi ko pa siya nagsasayaw, ginawa ko po alang-alang lang po sa ikakagulat nila."

Given the chance, she wants to be part of a teleserye. "Drama," despite its complexity, is where she wants to be good at.

Does she have a leading man in mind?

"Ay! Daniel Matsunaga. Edgar [Allan Guzman]. Si Mark [Neumann]," she quickly replied.

When asked to name actors outside of TV5 whom she wants to work with, she mentioned "Daniel Padilla at Enrique Gil."

We asked, "Your crush?"

With a shy smile, she nodded, "Si Daniel po..."
