Shaina Magdayao is a Filipino actress who has started her career at a very young age. She played the lead in the show Lyra back in 1996, and since then, she has gotten more shows and movies under her belt.

Back in 2017, it was reported that Shaina has Hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a disorder that involves the Thyroid gland, where it doesn’t secrete enough thyroid hormone to help in keeping the body running normally.

In October 19, 2019, posts have circulated from websites that look like legitimate news sites, where they say Shaina has passed away because of Hypothyroidism. Further information said that she was rushed to the hospital but still died.
