As part of the cast of the upcoming digital series The House Arrest of Us, Riva Quenery said she was so lucky to be chosen because she has never hidden the fact that she has always been a Kathniel fan even before joining showbiz.

“Parang karamihan ng mga tao dito sa Pilipinas talagang laging nanunuod ng mga videos ng Kathniel. Pero until now hindi pa rin ata [alam] ni Kath at ni DJ yun. Hindi ko pa yun nababanggit sa kanila na nagpa-picture ako sa kanila before. Tapos nung G2B fair hinahabol ko pa yung van nila kaso hindi ko naabot so hindi ako nakapag-pa-picture sa kanila,” she revealed.

During their first day of lock-in taping for the series, the 22-year-old vlogger and actress said she did not know how to react when she saw her co-stars Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla on the set. “Kaya first day na nakita ko sila, parang nagpapa-swab pa lang kami, hindi ko alam yung iri-react ko kung mag-fa-fangirl ba ako or tatahimik ako na lang ako. Kaya hanggang ngayon hindi nila alam yun ngayon lang,” she said.


Before they began taping, Riva also admitted she was worried about being in a lock-in taping for three weeks away from her family. “Super saya especially working with Kathniel dahil matagal na akong nanunuod sa kanilang dalawa, teleserye and movies pa lang. Sobrang sarap nila makatrabaho dahil lalo na yung cast iniisip ko kasi nung mag-la-locked-in taping na ako, ‘Kaya ko ba yun? Three weeks wala akong kasama, wala akong kakilala.’ Pero nung nakasama ko silang lahat, sobrang na-mi-miss ko sila ngayon. Sobrang suwerte namin sa director namin na si direk Richard (Arellano) kasi hinahayaan niya kaming maging kami. Puwede namin adlib-an, kami na bahala kung paano gagawin. Sobrang sarap sa pakiramdam na magkaroon ng ganun klaseng director kaya ang saya saya lahat ng staff. Sobrang sarap sa feeling marami din akong natutunan lalo na’t bago pa lang ako, sobrang dami kong natututunan lalo na dun sa mga matatagal na sa industriya tulad ni tito Dennis (Padilla),” she shared.

Now that she has spent time with them, Riva said she can’t help but fangirl especially when she witnesses how sweet the celebrity couple are even off camera. “Kasi may mga eksena na si Kathryn lang, may mga eksena na si DJ, pero kunwari may mga isang oras lang silang maghihiwalay, na-cu-cute-an ako kasi ilang years na sila pero parang isang buwan lang sila, nasa ligawan stage pa rin sila. Sana all (laughs),” she added.

The House Arrest of Us also stars Alora Sasam, Ruffa Gutierrez, Herbert Bautista, Dennis Padilla, Arlene Muhlach, and Gardo Versoza. It will start airing on October 24 on KTX.ph and will also be available on iWantTFC.
