Tuesday, February 25, 2014
KAPAMILYA actor Daniel Padilla doesn't believe that one must keep a different front in public to gain popularity and maintain fame in show business.
In an interview with the teen heartthrob at the thanksgiving press conference of primetime series "Got To Believe" on Tuesday, the 18-year-old actor said there is no conscious effort on his part to portray someone other than himself.
"Ako naman minahal nila ako kung ano yung dati pang ako. Hindi ako natatakot kung anong sasabihin nila dahil alam mo rin naman sa sarili mo kung mali yung ginagawa mo," he said, as he stressed that he is still the same guy who started small in the business.
"Nakikita naman ako na hindi ako masamang tao. Makulit lang talaga ako pero nagustuhan nila ako kung ano ako dati. So, maswerte ako sa kanila (fans). Ayoko mapressure... mas gusto ko maging happy na lang," he said.
The actor meanwhile commented on the alleged bickering of some of the fans of his perennial partner, Kathryn Bernardo, with supporters of other artists. Padilla said similar incidents are unavoidable but stressed that he's not in favor of disputes among fans.
"Talagang kasama yun, pero kung pwedeng wag ganoon, wag na lang sana. Hindi talag natin maiiwasan yun. Sabi nga kanina, kung hindi ka inaaway wala kang impact. Ganoon talaga. Napagdaanan ko rin naman yan."
Now that his evening series is about to end, Daniel said he's thankful to everyone who watched and supported "Got To Believe" since its maiden episode last August 2013.
He said the whole cast is happy to end the series on a high note, but saddened that their working time together will soon end.
"Masaya ang feeling namin (dahil) naging successful naman yung show. Malungkot din at the same time dahil matatapos na yung show. marami rin kaming napasaya. At siyempre nagpapasalamat din dahil yung mga fans hindi tinigilan ang panonood ng Got To Believe," he added.
The actor said he discovered a lot, acting wise, while doing the primetime series and is looking forward to his upcoming movie with Bernardo.
The duo will top bill the film adaptation of the best-selling pop fiction book "She's Dating the Gangster." The said project will also be directed by "Got To Believe" director Cathy Garcia-Molina. (Sunnex)
