Here’s further proof of Kathryn Bernardo’s 100% dedication to her craft.
At the Global Media Launch for the upcoming film “Hello, Love, Goodbye” yesterday, July 8, blockbuster director Cathy Garcia-Molina revealed that apart from not allowing the actress to talk to her castmates, she also forbade her from walking out during upsetting moments.

"Gusto na niya akong walk out-an,” Direk Cathy shared, “Second day 'yun. Eh ang rule ko sa kanya, lahat pwede mong gawin: pwede siyang magalit sa'kin, pwede niya akong murahin. She can do everything except walk out. So, tiniis niya ako.”
As if these rules weren't hard enough for Kathryn, Direk Cathy also "stripped off" her right to use her phone so she can "focus" on her scenes.
"'Pag may heavy scenes, 'yun 'yung bawal ang phone," Kathryn revealed. "Bawal [din] ako kausapin ng crew and staff."
All of these rules had a purpose, of course. Direk wanted Kathryn to know the pain and suffering of her character, who slaves away as a domestic helper in Hong Kong.
Direk Cathy explained, "Sabi ko kay Kath, 'Anong gagawin mo? Aartehan mo 'ko? I-aarte mo lang lahat 'to? Then nobody will believe you. It has to be real. You have to know how it feels. You have to know ano ang pain ng OFW [at] ano ang suffering nila. Until you do that, you cannot be Joy."
Nag-iisa ka talaga, Direk Cathy!
"Hello, Love, Goodbye" also stars Alden Richards. It will hit cinemas nationwide on July 31!
