Kathryn Bernardo on taking on ‘serious roles’: ‘Nahirapan po ako’

It seems as though Kathryn Bernardo is shifting to more serious roles in her latest movies.

The "Hello, Love, Goodbye" actress, who has starred in a number of romantic comedies, admitted that she actually quite had a hard time transitioning from portraying quirky characters to more serious ones.

"Dito sa 'Hello, Love, Goodbye' kasi, si Joy, hindi siya ganoong tao [na masayahin]. Ang hirap humiwalay. 'Yung '[The] Hows Of Us' kasi, may kaunting pagka-quirky [pa] 'yung character po ni George, eh," she said during the Global Media Launch of the film last July 9.

"Pero dito kasi, ang layo niya kay Joy. As in Joy 'yung pangalan niya pero wala siyang joy na tao kaya nahirapan po ako sa transition na 'yun." 

Kathryn actually misses doing rom-coms, she revealed, and she's still very much open to doing one in the future.

"Mahal ko rin gawin ang rom-com kasi na-enjoy ko po siya gawin. Pero siguro perfect po 'yung movie na 'to para tumawid doon ng kaunti kasi medyo malaki po ‘yung hiningi ng character," she said.

"Pero in the future open naman ako sa rom-com and with Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina. Pero sa ngayon, break po muna doon. Medyo seryoso po muna ‘yung mapapanood sa ‘Hello, Love, Goodbye.’”  

"Hello, Love, Goodbye" also stars Alden Richards. It will hit the theaters nationwide this July 31!
