The 17-year-old actor quipped, “Hindi pa kasi ako ready, e.”
Kathryn, who will celebrate her 17thbirthday on March 26, answered, “Yun po ang isa sa mga aabangan nila sa movie. Let’s see.”
Is Kathryn comfortable to have Daniel as her partner when she does shoot her first kissing scene?
“Kung dumating sa time na puwede na, of course, mas gusto ko na kilala ko na [guy sa] first kissing scene ko para hindi awkward masyado or hindi maninibago masyado kasi kasama ko na siya parati.
"Okay naman kung si DJ [Daniel’s nickname] ang first kissing scene ko sa movie.
“Yun yung matagal nilang [fans] hinihintay simula pa noong Princess and I," referring to their previous teleserye on ABS-CBN.
Directed by Dado Lumibao, their launching movie, Must Be Love, will be screened in cinemas starting March 13.
REAL STATUS. During the presscon held yesterday, February 28, TV host/columnist/actor Ogie Diaz asked KathNiel what is preventing them from admitting the real status of their relationship.
Daniel said, “Sana kasi lahat ng tao parang fans na lang. May mga taong talagang hindi nakakaintindi.
"Kahit naman hindi artista, pinagbabawalan pa rin ng tao, mas lalo po kaming artista.
“Marami pa kasi kaming gagawin.”
Does this mean that Daniel is still courting Kathryn?
“Parang M.U. na kami,” declared Daniel.
When Kathryn was asked regarding the status of their relationship, the young actress explained, “Kagaya po ng sinabi ni DJ [Daniel’s nickname], may mga bagay na hindi natin mamadaliin.
“And nagkakaintindihan kaming dalawa.
"Yun yung importante na alam namin kung ano ang priorities namin ngayon.
"Kasi ang dami pa naming dapat gawin at ang daming pang dapat ipunin para sa mga gusto namin sa future.
“Siguro darating rin diyan. Tumatanda rin naman tayo, di ba?”
Do they go out on dates?
Kathryn answered, “Siguro considered as date naman yung manonood ng movie po, pero kasama lagi si Mama.
“Nanonood ng movie, [nagpupunta] sa mall…”
Do they think that they will become a couple within the year?
“Hindi ko alam, e, siyempre kasi wala sa akin ang desisyon na iyon. Pero ita-try talaga namin!” Daniel said with a laugh.
He then echoed what a fan shouted during the event: “One year na lang daw, sige.”
LIZA SOBERANO. Ogie pointed out that there have been no reports linking Daniel to any other girl except Kathryn.
Daniel stressed: “Nagbago na kaming mga Padilla.
“Kailan lang ginawa ni Tito Robin, di ba? Ako naman ganito, si Erpats [Rommel Padilla], naman gano’n… nagbago na ang mga Padilla.”
In the movie, Liza Soberano (the young actress formerly known as Hope Soberano) is cast as Hope, the cousin of Kathryn’s character. Is there any jealousy because of the sweet scenes of Daniel and Liza?
Daniel pointed out: “Kasi propesyunal na lang…kung merong selos, paano tayo magtatrabaho? Kung magseselos kaming dalawa, sira na ang palabas. Mali na ang emosyon na ilalabas mo.”
VALENTINE’S DAY CELEBRATION. When PEP asked KathNiel how they celebrated Valentine’s Day, Daniel paused a while before answering: “Sweet. Masaya. Nag-movie marathon kami ni Kathryn.
“Siyempre, nakapuntos na naman ako. Nung Valentine’s, masayang araw yun. Masaya.”
What gifts did they give to each other?
Daniel revealed, “Binigyan niya ako ng lalagyan ng sapatos.”
What gift did Daniel give to Kathryn? “Pagmamahal lang po,” he said, eliciting cheers from his fans who were present at the Dolphy Theater.
SWEETEST GESTURES. The young loveteam was asked to recall the sweetest thing that they did for each other.
Daniel said that his grandest gesture for Kathryn took place during Valentine’s Day last year.
“Sa isang bahay, hindi niya alam na pupunta ako. Sabi ko, may meeting kami kaya hindi ako makakapunta.
"Tapos pagdating niya, nakasara lahat ng ilaw. Tapos sobrang daming petals ng roses.
"Kasi gusto niya candlelight dinner so yun ang ginawa ko.”
Kathryn added, “Kinain namin steak saka corned beef… sinigang na corned beef.”
When Kathryn was asked to describe her sweetest gesture, the morena actress paused for a long time as she thought about it.
The loveteam partners looked at each other then Daniel answered for her. He recalled, “Binigyan niya ako ng t-shirt. Kasi ano sa babae yun, di ba? Galing sa America…
“Talagang binilhan niya ako ng t-shirt na Batman.
"Siyempre, sa babae, magbibigay ka ba ng ganun sa lalaki? Parang pinapakita mo na gusto mo siya, pero hindi.
“Pinapakita niya na mahalaga ako,” said Daniel with a big smile.
