ABS-CBN actress Kim Chiu showed support for her love team partner and rumored boyfriend Xian Lim during the premiere night of Paddington 2.
For the second time, Xian lent his voice for the British bear in the Philippine release of the movie's sequel. The British animated movie will open today, January 31, 2018, in cinemas.
Photos of the KimXi tandem were taken inside Cinema 1 of Robinsons Magnolia last night, January 30.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) after the screening, Xian expressed his happiness over Kim's presence at the premiere.
He said, "She has a lot of things going on, and for her busy schedule, she made time for this. I'm just really happy na she's here and she enjoyed the movie with her friends!"
It was in January 2015 when Xian was tapped to voice Paddington Bear. The Kapamilya actor was handpicked by British producer David Heyman.
Xian told PEP.ph about the project, "I'm so grateful noong nire-record ko pa lang ito, noong dina-dub namin, noong ginagawa namin, I'm so grateful dahil it's such a fun movie for everyone."
Here's a photo of Xian with a Paddington mascot during the premiere:

In this movie produced by Star Cinema, Xian has two leading ladies: Coleen Garcia and Natalie Hart.
He has also started shooting his first movie under VIVA Films, Miss Granny, starring Sarah Geronimo and James Reid.
