"So to be honest, 'thank you' is not enough to cover everything I feel—because it was your love that made all of this possible."
Hindi man daw si Daniel ang katambal ni Kathryn sa pelikula, ang nobyo raw ang nagsilbing inspirasyon niya habang ginagawa ang pelikula nila ng Kapuso actor na si Alden Richards.
Kagabi, September 3, ginanap ang thanksgiving party sa pelikulang tumabo ng worldwide box-office gross na PHP880 million, ayon sa Star Cinema.
Mensahe ni Kathryn: "So I just came from our thanksgiving party and was finally able to thank the many people who were instrumental to the success of #HelloLoveGoodbye (you guys know who you are).
"However, there is one person I wasn’t able to mention—and he deserves this ENTIRE post.
"This person was not only my source of inspiration while I was filming the movie. He was my support system, my rock, my strength.
"We were hundreds of miles away from each other but not once did he make me feel alone."
Ang tinutukoy ni Kathryn ay ang isang buwang lock-in shoot sa Hong Kong para sa pelikula.
Minsang nang naikuwento ni Kathryn, 23, na iyon ang pinakamatagal na panahong napalayo siya kay Daniel, 24.
Dagdag pa rito ang challenge sa kanya ng direktor niyang si Cathy Garcia-Molina na huwag makipag-usap kay Daniel bilang bahagi ng immersion ni Kathryn sa pagganap sa papel ng isang domestic helper sa Hong Kong.
Hindi rin pinapayagan noon si Kathryn na makipag-usap sa kanyang co-stars kaya aminadong nahirapan nang husto ang aktres.
Patuloy niya: "There were times I almost gave up—I felt exhausted, drained, and too lonely as I was too immersed in the character of Joy.
"It was one of the hardest things I’ve experienced both on and off cam.
"But this guy, he kept me going."
VIDEO CALLS OF KATHRYN AND DANIEL
Bilang patunay, ibinahagi ni Kathryn ang ilang litrato nila ni Daniel sa mga pagkakataong naka-video call niya ito habang siya ay nasa Hong Kong.
"These are just some of the photos we sent each other every day—just random silly selfies, but they kept me going.
"I had a pillow with his t-shirt and scent on, which I hugged every night and every time I felt like crying. I know it sounds a bit childish, but that also kept me going.
"DJ, my love, YOU KEPT ME GOING."
DJ ang palayaw ni Daniel.
KATHRYN'S "NUMBER ONE CHEERLEADER"
Nagpasalamat din si Kathryn kay Daniel dahil buong-puso nitong ibinigay ang suporta sa kanya.
"Since day one, you were my biggest supporter and my number one cheerleader. I know how hard it was for you to let go of my hand, but despite that you still allowed me to fly.
"You know how scared I was being away from you too, but you stayed strong for the both of us.
"You kept reminding me, 'Kaya mo yan, mahal. Konti nalang!'
"You never gave up, you never gave me a reason to doubt myself or us."
Sa huli, masuyong sabi pa ni Kathryn, "I hope I made you proud, my love. I couldn’t have done this without you by my side.
"Your success is mine; my success is yours."
