Kathryn Bernardo feels pressured about her launching movie with Star Cinema


051111-kathryn_main.jpgKathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes are about to cross over from television to the big screen for their launching movie. The stars of the top-rating teleserye Mara Clara recently signed a two-picture contract with Star Cinema which paves the way for them to finally headline a movie. Kathryn, who plays the good character Mara in their teleserye, told reporters following the contract signing, “May dalawang movies kaming gagawin sa Star Cinema. Dun sa una kami ni Julia ang magkasama. Pero dun sa isa wala pang nasasabi sa amin. Ngayon ang focus muna namin is ‘yung first movie na malapit na naming simulan.

While she feels honored to be given the chance to play lead on the big screen, 15-year-old Kathryn admitted that she feels pressured by the responsibility to come up with a box office hit for Star Cinema. “Sobrang grateful namin ni Julia sa Star Cinema kasi nabigyan na kami ng pagkakataon na magka-movie. Pero at the same time kinakabahan kami kasi iba ang movie sa TV. But since Star Cinema naman ito for sure magiging maganda ‘yung project.”

Kathryn also talked about the death of AJ Perez who was supposed to be a part of this project. “Sobra talaga kaming nanghihinayang. Ito sana ‘yung first time naming makakatrabaho si AJ. Pero ibang project na ito, pati ‘yung director namin iba na, si Direk Jerry Sineneng na. Iniba na lahat.

The former Goin’ Bulilit star still couldn’t believe that she is now being dubbed as an up-and-coming dramatic actress. “Dati sa Goin’ Bulilit kami ni Julia nagdi-dream lang kami na sana maging dramatic actress  din kami katulad ng mga idols namin. Ngayon nandito na kami.”

She then thanked the fans who religiously watch Mara Clara every night, catapulting her and Julia to stardom. “Hanggang ngayon natutuwa kami kasi hindi pa rin nagsasawa ‘yung mga tao sa panonood gabi-gabi. Sana patuloy pa rin silang sumuporta hanggang sa huli. Mara Clara talaga ang naging big break namin ni Julia. Dito namin naipakita na kaya rin naming umarte. Ito talaga ‘yung matagal naming ipinagdadasal kaya nung dumating, talagang ibinigay na namin lahat.

Viewers who loved the endless catfights between Kathryn and Julia on Mara Clara can still expect more clashes in their upcoming movie. But Kathryn was quick to clarify that contrary to their roles, she and Julia are best friends in real life. “From the start friends naman kami. ‘Yung mga tao iniisip nila na pati sa totoong buhay magkaaway kami ni Julia. Pero friends talaga kami. Naku, kung alam niyo lang! Ha ha ha!
