10 Mar – Shaina Magdayao recently clarified that she is not one of the leads in the new movie, "Servando Magdamag", as reported on ABS-CBN.

The actress, who spoke about the film that has been reported as a reunion project between her and ex-boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz, stated that she only made a cameo appearance as a show of respect to its director Lav Diaz.

"I was able to attend so many international film festivals and the exposure he has given me is something I never thought I would ever get. I never thought I would experience it all my life. So I am thankful to him. This is my way of thanking him, by not saying no. So I did a cameo to be very exact," she said.

However, though she went into the film thinking it was a way to thank Diaz, Magdayao admitted that she is also glad to be able to support not only the filmmaker but also fellow co-star John Lloyd Cruz - especially since this is Cruz's first project since his previous hiatus.

"I'll answer it once and for all. It's not my film with him. It's his film. It's a Ricky Lee material. It's called "Servando Magdamag". It's directed by Lav Diaz," she said.
