Why the Kathryn-Daniel love team clicks
MANILA – Teen stars Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo believe their contradicting personalities is a key factor to their successful onscreen partnership.
In an interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday, the two agreed that they are quite different from each other and that this helped boost their love team.
“Magkaiba kami ni Kathyrn ng ugali, sa pag-iisip, kung ano ang kailangan gawin. Ako magulo, siya maayos. Kaya parang dahil sobrang magkaiba, nagiging compatible na,” said Padilla.
As for Bernardo, she said: “Kasi marami talaga kaming difference ni DJ, sa damit and sa ugali. Feeling ko naba-balance namin ang isa’t isa. Feeling ko 'yun ang isa sa mga reason kung bakit nag-work.”
Having been paired with each other for three years now, both said they are still overwhelmed by the success of their partnership.
Thus, Bernardo said she is extremely grateful because they have been given the chance to grow with each other.
“Before, importante na sa akin ang craft na ito. Pero ngayon mas na-appreciate ko siya. Mas alam ko na kung gaano kaimportante. Nag-grow kaming dalawa. 'Yung KathNiel noon, hindi naman laro pero hindi pa kami ganoon ka-focused,” she said.
Asked why he likes working with Bernardo, Padilla said: “Kasi parang katrabaho mo 'yung kaibigan mo na lang. Parang kunyari kaibigan mong lalaki, tapos nagtrabaho kayong sabay. 'Yung feeling na 'yun na komportableng komportable, 'yun ang nararamdaman ko kay Kathryn.”
Back in February, Padilla revealed that he and Bernardo already have a “mutual understanding.”
Asked if this has prospered through time, Bernardo said: “Nandito kami sa stage na ine-enjoy namin ang isa’t siya. Maybe 7 or 7.5 [in a scale of 1 to 10] kasi kapag sinabi kong 9, siguro kapag ikakasal age. Kapag 8, kapag kami na. So 7 kasi ine-enjoy pa namin isa’t isa.”
Bernardo said she enjoys being with Padilla too and she is willing to discover new things with the actor.
Bernardo and Padilla will be seen on primetime television anew with their newest series “Got To Believe” set to air its pilot episode on Monday.
