Taina

Show Summary

Taina Morales (Christina Vidal - 10-8, Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher) has dreams that someday she will be a star, but finds out that the road to being a star is a hard one. Taina attends Manhattan School of the Arts with her best friend, Renee Jones (Khalilah Adams), and her other friends Daniel McDaniel (David Oliver Cohen) and Lamar Johnson (Chris Knowings - New York Undercover). But of course, her arch Nemesis, Maritza Hogge (LaTangela), who also wants to be a star goes to her school! Taina lives with her parents, brother, and grandfather in Queens, New York. In every episode we see Taina and her attempts to become a star, and music videos in Taina's head. Watch Taina sing and dance her way to stardom! Scheduled Times Taina is canceled and is no longer airing. Past Times: Nickelodeon January 2001-December 2001 Sundays at 7:00p.m January 2002-May 2002 Saturdays at 9:00p.m June 2002-March 2003 Sundays at 7:30p.m FAQ Are there any Taina products? Yes! There is now a Taina soundtrack out that you can purchase at music stores and at amazon.com! In the UK there is a Taina DVD, that you can see more info about in the DVD Section of this guide! Why was Taina canceled? Unfortunately, Nickelodeon thought it only appealed to girls, and canceled it in May 2002. Has Taina won any awards? Taina recently won an Alma award for the 2001 season! What has the cast been doing since the end of Taina? Christina Vidal (Taina) starred in the ABC series 10-8 in September 2003 as Deputy Gabriela Lopez. But, it was canceled in January 2004. Christina has also guest starred in series such as The Nick Cannon Show (Along side Khalilah Adams (Renee), Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, and twice on Second Time Around. She was also featured in movies like Chasing Papi and Freaky Friday! Other cast members Josh Cruze (Eduardo Morales) and Selenis Leyva (Tita Rosa) have guest starred in other shows. Characters Taina: She's got the talent, the heart and the skills to make it HUGE as an entertainer—or at least that's what she thinks. Actually, Taina probably will be a star, but that doesn't change how weird it can be living life as a teen with big dreams in NYC. With the help of her friends and family, though, Taina just may become the next big thing! Renee: Renee's going to be a comedian when she graduates, but until she does, she'll be fine-tuning her material on Taina, her best friend for life. And although they help each other out and crack each other up, Renee doesn't laugh about getting Taina's back. They're tight like that. Lamar: Lamar's Taina's friend who secretly wishes he was much more than that. Yeah, Lamar's into Taina in a major way, but he's definitely too shy to do anything about it. As he waits for the perfect time to spill his guts, Lamar stands by Taina every step of the way—when his face isn't glued behind his video camera, that is. Daniel: Daniel is basically Lamar's other half. He shares a locker with Taina, so he sometimes gets the inside scoop on all that "girl stuff." But you can trust Daniel with confidential info, so it's cool. And he can play almost any style of music on almost any instrument, which comes in handy when your friends want to be stars! Maritza: Maritza is Taina's beautiful and talented arch Nemesis! The two have been rivals since kindergarten, and Maritza won't let anything get between her and success! Except Taina, of course. Eduardo: Taina's dad is a sensible, professional guy who also really loves music—he actually designs music programs for computers. Eduardo worries about Taina and watches out for her, but his affection for the guitar really keeps him in touch with her dreams too. Gloria: Gloria is fair and tough, but she loves music almost as much as she loves her family. The passion for the songs she and her sister sang as little girls has been passed onto her daughter—along with her good looks! Abuelo: Gregorio is Taina's grandfather, and he's ultra-supportive of everything she tries to do. But he also plays another important role: Taina's constant reminder of her Puerto Rican roots. Abuelo never lets her forget them. Tita: Tita is Taina's aunt. When she's not reminiscing with Tai's mom Gloria about their youth together, aunt Tita's out with Taina shopping, laughing and gossiping. That's what aunts are for. Santito: Like any good little brother, Santito adores his big sister—but he still gets huge laughs out of sabotaging her plans every once in a while. He's only 6, after all. He's got to have some fun! Theme Song "Gonna Be A Star" You know I can't wait to see my name in lights No one's gonna stop me you'll see I will go far (what's her name?) Taina, Taina I always have dreams of me being a star You'll be sayin' my name I've got love in my heart I will play any part Of the game You'll be sayin' my name See my star shining bright I will reach any high Where's my name Editors Head Editor - me_charmed_1 No additional editors needed at this time.
