How fame has affected Daniel Padilla
MANILA – Teen actor Daniel Padilla vowed not to let fame get into his head following his successful concert, television series and movie projects with onscreen partner Kathryn Bernardo.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, Padilla said what he is more concerned of is that his fans continue to appreciate his work.
“Siguro ituloy [ko] lang 'yung pagiging simple tapos aalagaan ko sila, 'yung mga supporters ko. Lagi ko silang pasasayahin at hindi ko sila idi-disappoint,” he said.
Padilla said he is fortunate to have been paired with Bernardo in all his projects because they have a “natural chemistry.”
“Hindi pilit, hindi 'yung basta sinabing gawin lang. Sobrang comfortable na kaya natutuwa 'yung tao. Kahit ako natutuwa kapag kami ni Kathryn,” he said.
Despite being one of the hottest young stars right now, the 19-year old actor admitted that he still has a lot of room for improvement.
“Marami pa sa acting. Wala pa akong napapatunayan sa acting so kailangan ko pang pag-aralan. Kailangan ko pang trabahuhin,” he said.
Padilla is currently working on the movie adaptation of the novel "She's Dating A Gangster" with Bernardo, and they are also set to make another TV series this year.
