Mara Clara's Kathryn Bernardo admits she has had to sacrifice school for showbiz opportunities.
Kathryn Bernardo is overwhelmed by success of her teleserye Mara Clara. "Sobrang saya po ng pakiramdam siyempre kasi po hindi namin ini-expect na magiging success ito. Sana po magtuloy-tuloy," she said hopefully. "Thank you po talaga sa mga tao sa pagsuporta nila."
She also explained that the high ratings of the show is such a priceless gift by itself that she is not keen on getting any present for the holidays. "Wala na akong ireregalo sa sarili ko, basta mage-enjoy na lang ako sa ginagawa ko." However, she did wish for her career to continue flourishing in the coming year. "'rsquo;Yung career ko mas gumanda siya sa 2011 tsaka sana huwag magsawa ang tao sa pagsuporta," she said.
Kathryn also revealed that because of her hectic schedule, she wassa forced to stop her schooling for the meantime. "'rsquo;Yun po 'lsquo;yung problema namin kasi regular schooling po ako sa OB (Montessori) noon pero hindi na namin mapagsabay ngayon dahil palagi akong may taping." Aside from Mara Clara, Kathryn is also part of the youth-oriented show ShoutOut. "So 'lsquo;yun nag-decide po ako na stop muna kasi minsan lang po 'lsquo;yung opportunity so grab ko na 'lsquo;yung opportunity tapos 'lsquo;yung school makakapaghintay naman po siguro." The 14-year-old actress shared that she is considering undergoing a home-study program next year.
Among the famous young stars today, Kathryn looks up to Kim Chiu the most and added that she also dreams of becoming a primetime princess someday. And if she would be ever identified with a constant leading man, Kathryn said that she wants their team-up to be as successful as the Kim-Gerald Anderson love team.
Kathryn said that while she will be busy this Christmas taping for Mara Clara, she will be spending Christmas Day with her family and relatives. "Wala kaming bakasyon this Christmas. Medyo conflict nga rin po 'lsquo;yung schedule ko, eh [pero] ang importante naman po kasama ko 'lsquo;yung family sa bahay [at] bonding na lang kami."
