Daniel Padilla says Kathryn Bernardo's first onscreen kiss should be with him

At the presscon of Got To Believe earlier today, February 25, Daniel Padilla believes there is a right time for him and Kathryn Bernardo to share their first onscreen kiss. They also happily talked about the lessons they learned from GTB director Cathy Garcia-Molina while working together for six months on the primetime teleserye.


Although she’s turning 18 next month, Kathryn Bernardo maintained that she’s not yet ready to do a kissing scene with Daniel Padilla for the much-awaited finale of teleserye Got To Believe.

While it is true that it’s dubbed as “the best ending ever,” Kathryn stressed that there are other twists in the love story of their characters that viewers should look forward to.

“Feeling ko it’s too early para sa akin. Kasi parang kapag nasimulan mo na yun, feeling ko, parang kailangan sa lahat ng shows mo ganun ka na.

“Hindi ka na puwedeng tumanggi o magsabi ng ayoko. Nagawa mo na, e. So for me talaga, hindi pa.

“Puwede namang hug lang muna, kiss sa cheek, ‘yan pwede. Pero ‘pag sa lips, [the right] time will come for that,” said the young actress during the presscon of Got To Believe earlier today, February 25.

For his part, Daniel said that he’s “steadily” waiting for the right time to take that next step in their acting career.

The teen actor made it clear though that Kathryn’s first onscreen kiss should be with him.

“Siguro naman opo dapat si Kathryn [din ang first onscreen kiss ko]. Sa haba ng pinagsamahan namin. E, kung mapupunta naman sa iba yun, bad trip naman yun,” Daniel stated, much to everyone’s laughter.

DIREK CATHY'S TOUGH LOVE. After almost 7 months of taping Got To Believe, Kathryn can’t hardly believe that the ABs-CBN soap opera will air its final episode on March 7.

Aside from the new friends that she gained among her other co-stars, she shared that she’s also grateful to director Cathy Garcia-Molina for challenging her to improve her craft.

“Kay Direk Cathy matututo ka kung paano bumilis yung pick-up mo, kung paano maging natural.

“Feeling ko yun ang pinagkaiba niya sa ibang director. Hindi siya teleserye acting or TV acting.

“Kaya yung napapanood mo mas natural. Feeling ko na-apply ko yun and forever ko yun dadalhin. Pati na rin yung mga bilin niya and kung paano ang magandang working relationship.”

Daniel, on the other hand, revealed that he initially felt intimated by the way Direk Cathy motivates him on the set.

“Medyo napiga ako ni Direk Cathy dito sa show. Kay Direk Cathy, the more na mas relaxed siya magsalita, mas nakukuha ko yung eksena.

“Kasi ‘pag nate-tense na ako sa kanya, nagpa-panic na ako, hindi ko alam ang gagawin ko.

“Ngayon, medyo hihinga muna ako tapos papatawanin ko siya. Kapag napatawa ko na, masasabi na niya ng mas maayos yung dapat kong gawin.”

PROUD OF DANIEL AND KATHRYN. Direk Cathy, for her part, admitted that her typical "tough love" approach doesn’t really work with the two Got To Believe lead stars.

“Honestly, nagsungit ako in the beginning. I had to know kung hanggang saan sila. Kasi, di ba, masungit naman talaga akong director? Hindi ko naman itinatanggi ‘yan.

“And sa lahat na ginawa kong pahirap sa kanila, ang tanging alam ko na hindi magwo-work sa kanila kapag pinapahiya ko sila. Nakikita kong tumiklop.

“Sabi ko nga sa kanila, ‘Kayo lang ang nakatrabaho ko na ganito ako,’ [na pumepreno ako sa pagsusungit.]”

Nevertheless, Direk Cathy observed that Daniel’s acting skills improved a lot in the past few months.

“Si DJ nagulat ako, meron palang dramatic sense. According to most people I’ve talked to, ‘Direk, ngayon lang namin nakita ‘yan [dramatic side ni Daniel]. Pinag-e-MMK [Maalaala Mo Kaya] na nga po namin.’”

As for Kathryn, Direk Cathy acknowledged the fact that the young actress is known for her flair for acting.

“Ang hinugot ko na lang sa kanya yung depth, yung klase ng iyak na iba-iba. Nakita ko kung gaano siya ka-willing to learn.

“For someone who has been in showbiz for so long, natutuwa ako kung paano nila tinatanggap [yung pag-mentor ko].”

After Got To Believe, Kathryn and Daniel are slated to work with Direk Cathy again for the Star Cinema movie adaptation of the book She's Dating the Gangster.
