Kathryn reveals struggles before ‘The Hows of Us:’ ‘I felt so lost’

Kathryn Bernardo has been getting praise left and right for her performance as George in “The Hows of Us,” but she had to take a long and rough journey to deliver that level of greatness.

The actress shared at the film’s Thanksgiving Dinner last night, September 12, that she felt so lost because of her self-doubts, and that she had to rethink if really wanted to do “The Hows of Us.”

“Early this year, I felt so lost… ‘Yung kay George na [linya] na ‘pagod na pagod na ako, [meron din ako] na I’m so tired… kasi dumating ‘yung point na sumuko na rin ako sa magkakasunod na nangyari, and then they (Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina and screenwriter Carmi Raymundo) asked me, ‘Do you want this?’ ...Sabi ko ‘Yes’ and sabi nila as long as gusto mo, nandito kami para tulungan ka,” she related.

Kathryn furthered that she couldn’t have done her performance without Direk Cathy by her side.

“I felt like she saved me… Sa lahat ng praises na naririnig dito sa movie, it’s because of her,” she said. “Hindi siya naging madali, sobrang hirap, grabe ‘yung pressure… pero lahat ito, it’s for Direk Cathy and for Inang (Olivia Lamasan). I hope I made you proud.”

Kathryn also said that it doesn’t matter whether she wins an award for performance or not. What’s important is a lot of people saw the effort she made to bring George to life.

“Ang importante is bumangon tayo sa mahirap na times, ginawan mo ng paraan. Masaya lang talaga ako kasi maraming nakaka-appreciate ng pelikula,” she said. “Masaya ako kasi naniwala sila ulit sa’kin, and ‘yun ‘yung pinaka-reward na hinihintay ko.”

Meanwhile, her on-and-off-screen partner Daniel Padilla related that he’s glad so many people are now seeing her talent, especially since he’s believed in her since the beginning.

“Simula pa lang, malaki na ang tiwala ko at bilib ko kay Kathryn, dahil alam ko sa puso ko, nakikita ko na ibang umarte ‘tong taong ‘to. Kaya nagtataka ako, ano ba ‘yung hindi nila nakikita? And now I think they saw it, so good job Kathryn and Direk Cathy,” he said.
