They say that it’s impossible for an everlasting friendship to thrive in the demanding world of show business. However, there are celebrities who are fortunate to find their soulmates who will stick by their side through the ups and downs of life and will support them no matter what, just like Kathryn Bernardo and Kristel Fulgar.
A friendship that goes way, way back, their closeness started in Goin’ Bulilit, as two of its pioneers. Growing up, the two treaded on different paths, with Kathryn soaring to stardom through headlining various teleseryes movies, while Kristel opting to pursue her Communication Arts degree and setting aside her career for the meantime.
With her bestfriend continues to create her name in the entertainment industry, the latter has become successful in her own way by uploading covers of popular foreign and OPM songs on her YouTube channel, which brought her the Silver Play Button Award having breached 100,000 subscribers and the opportunity to join fellow sensations in last year’s Youtube Fan Fest.
After not seeing them in one show for a very long time, the BFFs had the chance to work together in the hit teen-oriented drama Got To Believe in 2013 where Kristel played the antagonist Editha Pantoja to Kathryn’s Chichay Tampipi. It was succeeded by the former’s appearance as Viel, the best friend of the Teen Queen’s Gabriela in the 2015 Star Cinema movie Can’t Help Falling In Love, and her stint in the primetime series Pangako Sa ‘Yo and La Luna Sangre both top-billed by her “favorite couple” KathNiel.
Amidst their busy schedules and the grueling demands of the sphere they are in, these admirable BFFs prove that there’s nothing impossible as long as you make time and exert effort for something you want, such as gaining a person who’s willing to be with you no matter what.
