Asked what aided her in fulfilling the acting task, Kathryn says that their director, Jerrold Tarog, was awfully kind.
"Sobrang ang bait po talaga ni Direk Jerrold sa amin. Siya yung [tumutulong] sa akin para huwag ako matakot.
"Tapos siya yung nag-ask sa akin na gusto niya under-acting hindi yung over-acting na masyadong takot na takot.
"Yung parang normal lang talaga. Iba yung atake po ni Direk Jerrold din kasi."
Kathryn explains that the filmmaker—who joins director/scriptwriter Chris Martinez and Richard Sommes in Shake Rattle and Roll 13—did not put the pressure on her to forcedly appear frightened in the scenes.
Direk Jerrold encouraged her to adhere to a more ""realistic" type of acting.
WORKING WITH A KAPUSO TWEEN. A salient factor in this particular MMFF entry is that it mixes a pool of actors from rival networks ABS-CBN and GMA.
A perfect illustration would be Kathryn and Tween Academy star Louise delos Reyes.
No form of enmity or competition happened between her and her equally talented co-star, says Kathryn.
"Okay naman. Wala namang naging problem kasi madali rin naman pakisamahan si Louise.
"Sa konting shooting days namin, nakapag-bonding kami."
Will it be possible for them to be best friends?
Kathryn straightforwardly quips: "Hindi ko masasabi rin po yun, e.
"Sa akin po kasi, gusto ko kilalanin muna yung tao bago ko masabing best friend. Like Julia [Montes], na ang tagal ko rin po siyang nakasama kaya sobra ang tiwala ko.
"So sa akin po muna ngayon, friends [kami]."
