Now that she's 20 years old, Kathryn Bernardo remarked that she is ecstatic about the things that will transpire in her adulthood.
"Alam mo tinatanong nila, sinasabi ko I don't know what to expect, sinasabi ko lang excited ako and I am looking forward sa mga mangyayari now that I am 20. Excited ako kung papano ko siya maha-handle and kung papano ako natututo before and maa-apply ko na siya now," the young actress shared.
What is her greatest realization throughout the years?
"Siguro 'yung pagiging strong sa lahat. Before kasi medyo fragile ako pero because of all the experiences before, sa lahat ng nangyari, I think I learned a lot and kailangan talaga maging strong ka para mas ready ka to face everyone. Kailangan mo mahalin sarili mo at kailangan talaga hindi ka mag-stop. Pag may problema ka and gawin mo 'yung motivation mo to be a better person," Kathryn said.
The Teen Queen relayed that she will be playing more mature roles now that she is 20. "Of course, yes, 'yun naman ang gusto namin habang nag-iiba 'yung age mo nag-iiba rin 'yung mga ginagawa mo and isa 'yun sa gagawin namin under Star Cinema. Sinabi na sa amin na seryoso talaga and pine-prepare na kami kung papano gagawin 'yung role, kinakabahan na kami ni DJ."
She shared that they will be shooting their next film in Barcelona. "[Lalabas] soon daw and we'll start shooting soon but for the final details wala pa. For sure 'yung 90 percent of the movie isho-shoot namin siya sa Barcelona so parang lahat and of course to be directed by Olivia Lamsan."
The actress admitted that she is pressured about the movie but she is excited of what is to unfold as soon as they start shooting. "Nakaka-pressure talaga pero with the guidance of tita Malou (Santos) and Inang (direk Olivia), sa kanila kami kumakapit at alam ko naman na hindi kami nila pababayaaan and I'm so excited dito kasi first time kong makatrabaho si Inang at dream ng lahat 'yun kaya I am very happy and ita-take ko 'to as a challenge para maging maganda ang outcome ng movie."
Meanwhile, Kathryn is taking on a new role as an author and recently had her book launching last April 10 at EastWood Mall. According to the former child star, it has been one of her dreams to be an author.
"Actually before pa lang dream na ng lahat yata na magka-book. ‘Pag sinabing naging author ka ng book parang, wow ang saya naman and sakto lumapit sa akin ang Summit (Media), they asked for a meeting and sobrang kinilig ako kasi iniisip ko pa lang 'to. Tapos ang lahat ng ideas ko at ng ideas nila swak lahat so sinabi namin 'yung di ko pa kasi nagagawa itong book kasi nagka-album na and then napapanood na nila sa TV, may mall shows and may movie so 'yung bagay na di mo nagagawa na pwede kong iregalo sa mga fans ko is really the book.
“It's the perfect idea at sobrang saya ko ngayon dahil ang daming nagtwe-tweet na nakaka-relate sila, nabasa nila 'yung book at nag-enjoy sila at ang sarap sa pakiramdam na nakaka-relate ang lahat kasi 'yun talaga 'yung target namin," she said.
