‘Hello, Love, Goodbye’ shoot a ‘big adjustment’ for Kathryn, Daniel
MANILA, Philippines — Actress Kathryn Bernardo admitted that the month-long shoot in Hong Kong for her film “Hello, Love, Goodbye” with Alden Richards required a “big adjustment” for her and boyfriend Daniel Padilla.
During the movie’s press conference on Tuesday, Bernardo said shooting the film was tough for them since she and Padilla had worked together for years even in stints outside of the Philippines.
“Hindi naging madali. Mahirap para samin pareho kasi for six, seven years kami magkasama sa trabaho. So kahit nagtrabaho kami abroad, okay kasi kami ‘yung magkasama eh. Ibang-iba ngayon,” Bernardo said.
The 23-year-old actress said it was Padilla who helped her get through the tough times she had while shooting the film. However, her phone was confiscated to help her focus and give more to her character.
“Doon ko siya [Padilla] lalong na-appreciate kasi nung first week ko ‘yun po ‘yung sinabi ko na umiiyak ako noon every night. Tapos gusto ko na magpa-book ng ticket pauwi kasi ayoko nang tapusin ‘yung movie, kasi hirap na hirap na ako,” Bernardo said.
“Sinabi na lang namin na mag-update pag nasa shoot. Eh kinonfiscate din yung phone ko so paano ako magu-update?” she added.
In fact, they still had a hard time seeing each other despite Padilla flying all the way to Hong Kong to visit her.
“So sabi niya pupunta na lang sya, dadalaw siya. Eh nung pumunta siya medyo heavy scene po noon. So ang ginawa po nila tinago siya sa akin. Hindi muna ulit kami nagkita,” Bernardo said.
Nonetheless, the actress said this taught the two of them the meaning of trust.
Bernardo said: “‘Yung lesson lang siguro na natutunan ko yung trust. ‘Yung sinasabi ko lang parati sa kanya, tiwala. ‘Yun lang kasi, nahihirapan din ako magtrabaho kung may mabigat sa loob mo [Padilla].”
“So ‘yung naging challenge lang po samin kung yung matagal pong maghiwalay ng ganun po katagal. Super hirap kaya supportive sya, all out po siya dito sa movie,” she added.
“Hello, Love, Goodbye,” helmed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, is the first team-up of Bernardo and Richards, who belong to rival television networks.
The film is slated for release on July 31, 2019.
