Why is Mayward hesitant to be compared to Kathniel?

Here's further proof that Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber are one of the most humble love teams we've ever encountered. 

In a recent interview with ABS-CBN, the pair revealed their hesitations in being compared to one of the top love teams of the country, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. They humbled themselves completely and revealed that while comparisons to Kathniel are "flattering," it comes way too soon. 

"The amount of experience [KathNiel has] is unbelievable. And the amount of hardwork they've put into their craft is unbelievable," Edward said.

He continued, "We came out of the ('Pinoy Big Brother') house in March and while it's flattering for us and it sounds great to hear that...the truth is we're not near their level yet."

"Sana one day, we can get to their level of expertise in their craft, but at the moment we don't want to think like that." 

Maymay was quick to back up her leading man's statements, saying:

"At saka parang laging nire-remind sa aming dalawa na kung paano [namin] sila nakilala noong hinahangaan [lang namin] sila...'wag na 'wag [kaming] magsasawa na hangaan sila."

Admittedly a huge Kathniel fangirl, Maymay revealed that she still gets starstruck whenever she sees her idols.
She explained, "Kasi habang nakikita ko sila, nagfa-flashback lahat 'yung noon na ang hirap nilang maabot, ang hirap nilang mahawakan, ang hirap nilang makausap tapos ngayon, andiyan na sila.

"Kaya kahit anong mangyari, kahit anong sabihin nila na kino-compare kami wala akong paki. Basta ako habang buhay ko silang hahangaan."
Maymay and Edward, who started their showbiz careers as "Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7" teen housemates, starred in their first film together this year called "Loving in Tandem". 

Maymay is currently a cast member in the hit action-fantasy television series "La Luna Sangre" which is led by Kathryn and Daniel.
