Kathryn Bernardo admits she has matured a lot because of 'Princess and I'


100512-Kathryn_main.jpgAs star of the top-rated Primetime Bida series Princess and I, Kathryn Bernardo said she was happy to be part of another successful project after Mara Clara and Growing Up. “Happy ako kasi mas matagal yung show, kaya lang andun yung pressure sa amin na baka habang magtagal hindi naming alam kung masu-sustain namin yung ratings, ganyan. Pero hopefully sana yun lang yung magiging challenge namin na ma-sustain yun hanggang matapos. At first hindi naman talaga namin in-expect na mag-top yung show, hindi rin ako ganun ka-confident kasi yung big stars lang talaga namin siyempre si Ms. Gretchen Barretto at Mr. Albert Martinez, as in yun yung mga senior stars. Pero siguro nakita naman nila na sinusubukan talaga namin na kahit kami-kami lang and then thank God na naging successful,” she shared with Push.com.ph.

Kathryn admitted that she has definitely matured over the course of the show’s run. “Feeling ko nag-mature ako kasi mas marami akong natutunan ngayon especially with our director. Yan si direk Rory Quintos na talagang super ang dami mong matututunan sa kanya and very strict talaga siya sa amin, pero in a good way naman. Para matuto kami and para matuto ka na mas maging professional kasi makikita mo kung gano ka-professional si Tito Albert,” she said.

The pretty morena said her life has changed even more that the series has grown so popular. “Ngayon kasi Mikay na tawag nila sa akin (laughs). Parang feeling ko, ‘Yes graduate na ako sa Mara Clara, hindi na Mara yung tawag sa akin (laughs).’ Pero may iba yun pa rin ganun pa rin eh. And makikita mo na yung mga bata na ages seven to nine, yan talaga yung market namin na makikilala ka na nila kahit bata pa sila. Masarap ang feeling na ganito kasi sinasabi nila hindi sila natutulog hangga’t hindi nila napapanuod ang Princess and I. para sa akin, very flattering yun of course,” she admitted.

The talented actress said that despite the success, she has not let fame get to her ego. ”Siguro same pa rin ako pagdating sa makakausap mo naman ako kahit kelan, basta madali mo akong makakausap. Ganun din naman ako before. Siguro yung nagbago lang medyo mas busy ngayon kasi visible sa Princess and I so maraming kailangan gawin and parang wala din namang masyadong pinagbago. Ako pa rin yung dati. Hindi ko rin nararamdaman na may nagbago,” she said.

Kathryn also shared how she does not let the pressure of work affect her mood. “Siguro dahil na rin sa personality ko rin kasi , super pala-smile ako na tao. Parang pag-nginitian mo ako, mag-smile back din ako sayo! Parang ganun (laughs). At saka basta smiley eyes din ako siguro kaya akala nila parati ang saya saya ko kahit hindi naman ako masaya (laughs). And ayoko rin naman kasi ng bad trip kasi parang nakakahawa sa ibang tao. Gusto ko chill lang,” she shared.

Even with all the positive feedback that she has been getting from all her projects, Kathryn said that acting is still a big challenge for her. “Mahirap pa din. Ang hirap. Although masasabi ko na light lang yung Princess and I, hindi siya super light kasi andun pa rin yung gusto naming bigat pero maba-balance namin ng light. So yun yung mahirap gawin,” she explained.

As the show ends its run this month, the Princess and I star revealed how she plans to reward herself for all the hard work she’s put into the series. “Gusto ko sana mag out of the country nga eh, pero hindi ko pa nasabi kay mama. Yun ang wish ko kung papayagan ako ni mama. Reward ko sa sarili ko. Pero since may MMFF (Metro Manila Film Fest) pa hindi ko alam kung paano kami makakaalis. Gusto ko kahit Hong Kong or Singapore, masaya na ako promise. Kasi may US tour na kami tapos Singapore na for ASAP so gusto ko for vacation naman kung walang trabaho, yung mamimili ka lang para sa sarili mo at para sa family ko, ganyan. Kahit two days happy na ako dun (laughs),” she said.
