One of the highlights of Kathryn Bernardo's year was being able to work with veteran actor Ronaldo Valdez in 2G2BT (Too Good To Be True), her upcoming series with partner Daniel Padilla.
In her recent Instagram update, the actress could not help but gush as she posted photos with "Tito Ron", her favorite actor.
"Achievement unlocked: a photo with my favorite actor, Tito Ron!" she wrote in the caption.
"It's such a privilege to be working with him for this project! Fun fact: He was our ONLY choice for the role when they pitched #2G2BT last year. No one else," she continued. "Being able to do this show with him is one of the highlights of my 2021. Hayyy my heart."
It was in September when Kathryn and Daniel announced that they were reuniting on television via 2G2BT, which marks their first teleserye in four years after 2017's La Luna Sangre.
According to Kathryn, the series is part of their 10th anniversary celebration as the popular love team "KathNiel." It also falls under the romance-comedy genre.
"Gusto talaga naming gumawa ng parang romcom. Kasi 'yung last serye namin was La Luna Sangre and 'yun medyo fantasy-action siya. So sabi namin, siguro 'yung mga fans lalo, 'yung hinihiling nila is to see us parang gumagawa ng light na feel," said Kathryn.
"But of course andyan pa rin 'yung dapat may matututunan ka, nandyan pa rin 'yung core ng mga characters. But something light, just to give them a break and breather ba sa lahat ng nangyayari ngayon."
A teaser for the series was released early this week, giving fans a glimpse of the romantic moment when their characters, Alissoh and Elorde, crossed paths for the first time.
Aside from Ronaldo, other stars of 2G2BT include Gloria Diaz and Irma Idlawan, as well as Smokey Manaloto, Gelli de Belen, Romnick Sarmenta, and Cris Villanueva.
Alyssa Muhlach, Jenny Miller, Yves Flores, Gillian Vicencio, and Matt Evans are also part of the cast, along with Pamu Pamorada, Bianca De Vera, and Kristel Fulgar.
2G2BT is directed by Mae Cruz-Alviar, who also helmed Kathryn and Daniel's blockbuster films Crazy Beautiful You (2015) and Can't Help Falling In Love (2017).
As of this writing, a release date for 2G2BT has yet to be announced.
