After years in the industry, Daniel Padilla managed to build a resume that other actors can only hope for. One of his most memorable teleseryes is Growing Up. There is also the 2013 romantic drama Got to Believe which is on his list of personal favorites.
Why Growing Up was one of Daniel Padilla’s favorite teleserye
He will never forget the fact that he got to work with Cathy Garcia-Molina early on in his career. The “Hows Of Us” star considered it an honor to be trusted a lead role in the famous director’s project. There was never a dull moment on set. Every scene was carefully planned and discussed. She became a big influence on his work ethic and overall craft. “Si Direk Cathy kasi sobrang mahal na mahal ko ‘yung tao na ‘yun,” he shared. Now, they are genuinely friends off set.
Another reason why Got to Believe is a favorite for Daniel is because of how positive it was received by fans. “Mahal na mahal ko ‘to dahil naging iconic siya sa mga to,” he continued. Its impact to the viewers made all their work worth it, “’Yun naman ‘yung kasiyahan mo ‘pag nakita mo na umaabot sa kanila ‘yung ganoon.”
This was also the first teleserye that launched a fan meet. The “The Best Fair Ever” was a whole day event to celebrate the show’s last week. There were rides, booths and a concert. Of course, the cast, led by KathNiel, were present. Moments like this are an example of how dedicated the love team’s fans are, especially the ones who have been part of the fandom from the very beginning. “Talagang malaki ang utang na loob namin sa mga taong ‘yun. Sila ang nagpaginhawa ng buhay namin,” Daniel ended.
