Neil Coleta took a trip down memory lane when asked about Daniel Padilla, his longtime friend since "Growing Up" days, on "Tonight with Boy Abunda" last night, October 11.
He described the "totoy" King of Hearts as a shy young boy who showed a lot of potential in showbiz.
"Hindi ko ini-expect na may tinatago siya (Daniel) sa sarili, na may kulit din pala," Neil recalled.
He was also proud to share that Daniel has stayed grounded even though he's one of the biggest stars in the industry today.
And when asked about the dynamic between Kathryn and Daniel back in 2011, Niel shared, "Focused si Kathryn sa work, tapos sa set hindi sila nagpapansinan pa. Pero lagi kong binubuyo."
The "Crazy Beautiful You" actor continued, "Nung tumatagal 'yung taping namin, 'yung mga sumunod na episode ng 'Growing Up,' sabi ko parang may spark 'tong dalawang 'to. Kahit ako kinikilig ako."
Meanwhile, at the recent ABS-CBN Ball, Neil shared that he had a short conversation with Daniel that strengthened their bond even more.
"Sabi niya, 'Alam mo brad, pinapanood ko 'yung 'Growing Up' lately, ikaw 'yung unang naging kaibigan ko. Ikaw 'yung unang naging malapit sa'kin. Hindi ko makakalimutan 'yun,' sabi ko, 'DJ, ikaw pa rin 'yan. Hindi ka talaga nagbago." AWW!
Neil stars in "Pang MMK" along with Joel Torre, Cherry Pie Picache, and Nikki Valdez, which is an entry at the Cinema One Originals Festival 2018. It screens in selected cinemas from October 12 to 21.
