MANILA, Philippines -- Young actor Daniel Padilla denied he is trying to follow in the footsteps of his uncle  Robin Padilla.

"Hindi naman po. Pareho po ang apelyido namin kaya ganito kami mga Padilla lahat," Daniel said.

The young Padilla stressed he's not trying to copy the gestures and the speaking voice of his uncle.

"Ganoon po talaga kasi nasa pamilya po 'yan. Saka hindi lang po si Tito  Robin, kahit mga kapatid ko at mga tito ko kapag magsalita ay ganito din," Daniel said.

Asked if he would also like to try doing action projects, Daniel said: "Sa totoo sa ngayon 'di ko pa alam kung ano ang gusto ko, hindi ko pa kasi nae-explore lahat. Siguro masasagot ko 'yan kapag nagawa ko na (lahat)."

Currently, Padilla is being romantically linked to young actress Kathryn Bernardo.

The two can be seen on for ABS-CBN's newest TV soap "Princess and I," which airs weeknights after "TV Patrol."
