Daniel Padilla is determined to become a good actor someday


Daniel Padilla, one of the new Star Magic talents in Gimik 2010, feels overwhelmed about working with big stars such as Judy Ann Santos, Diether Ocampo, and Mylene Dizon for his first TV show. "Masaya na nahihiya po, kasi siyempre veteran na sila, ako baguhan pa lang. Pero mababait naman sila. Pero po I feel comfortable din at the same time kasi friends naman sila ni mommy (Karla Padilla). Dati po pumupunta kami sa house nila Tita Judy Ann." 

Daniel said that he is determined to learn from his seniors. "Napapagaralan naman po kasi ang acting. Marami rin naman po kaming workshops before kami mag-start. At first mahirap po kasi nandun ang hiya pero ngayon nasasanay na ako sa mga kasama ko, and kapag nakukuha mo na yung technique, okay naman na." 

Having a former actress as a mother also helps as she always gives him pointers, but he also stressed that she is not a stage mom. "Okay naman po si mommy, proud naman daw po siya sa akin. Pero hindi po siya sumasama sa tapings, P.A. ko lang po kasi ayaw po niya maging stage mom, kasi magmumukha daw siyang matanda. Pero minsan gusto niya ring sumama, ayoko naman po kasi nahihiya ako."
