MANILA – Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo said they look up to the love teams of Piolo Pascual and Judy Ann Santos and John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo.
Speaking to reporters last Friday, Padilla said: “Siguro ise-set po namin sila Sir Piolo or Sir John Lloyd na example para sa aming dalawa ni Kathryn. Inspirasyon sila naming dalawa dahil hindi naman po sila sumikat dahil gwapo at maganda but dahil magagaling silang aktor.”
Admitting she’s a fan of the four Kapamilya stars, Bernardo said she vowed to work on further improving her craft.
“Maraming mas senior sa amin. Fan kami nila. Ayaw ko sabihin na tatapatan namin sila or gusto namin mas angatan sila pero sila yung inspiration namin. Madami pa kaming dapat matutunan… Sana one day maging katulad nila kami. Nakita naman natin yung mga pelikula nila, talagang tumatak,” she said.
To date, Padilla and Bernardo have already headlined two Kapamilya series, and have co-starred several Star Cinema movies.
Their latest project together is “She’s Dating the Gangster,” which is scheduled to open in cinemas nationwide on July 16.
In the film, Padilla plays the role of Kenji, a "gangster" who attempts to win her former girlfriend back by entering a pretend relationship with Bernardo's character, Athena.
The film, which is based on the bestselling book Bianca Bernardino, is directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.
