MANILA, Philippines - A newbie Kapamilya actor who has openly expressed his admiration for actress Kathryn Bernardo finally had the chance to meet the "Princess and I" star.

Bernardo made the confirmation to ABS-CBN News, saying that "Aryana" actor Dominic Roque introduced himself to her during a production number last week.

"Nagka-prod kami last week with 'Aryana,' with 'Be Careful With My Heart,' parang may isang cast prod tapos nag 'hi,' nagpakilala siya. Officially parang nagpakilala siya," Bernardo said.

As early as now, Bernardo said she is not open to the idea of entertaining Roque as a suitor should he decide to court her.

"Dumaan muna siya kay Mama," said the 16-year-old actress, who stressed that work is currently her top priority.

During a guest appearance on "Kris TV" last August, Bernardo denied that Roque is courting her.

"Hindi talaga, hindi po. Hindi pa nga kami formally nagkakakilala," she said.

Currently, Bernardo is busy taping for her hit series "Princess and I" with Daniel Padilla, who is also being romantically linked to her.
