When the first teaser for Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla's movie Barcelona: A Love Untold came out last night, we couldn't help but think how good the teen king and teen queen look together. Yes, we're still caught off guard by their chemistry after all these years.
These two have come a long way from the very first time we noticed their chemistry in Princess & I. So we thought we'd give you a little trip down memory lane today by going back as far as before Kathryn was part of KathNiel. Before the birth of one of this generation's brightest love teams, Kathryn was paired with these other actors, too.
1. Kristoffer Martin for Endless Love
Although Kathryn started her career on ABS-CBN, Kath starred as the young Jenny (the older Jenny was played by Marian Rivera) on the local adaptation of Endless Love opposite Kristoffer Martin, who was played by Dingdong Dantes later on the show.
2. Albie Casiño for Mara Clara
After Endless Love, Kath went back to her home network to star in the remake of Mara Clara with Julia Montes. There, she was paired with Albie who was also starting out in the biz.
3. Enrique Gil for Way Back Home and Princess & I
Enrique was first paired with the teen queen in the movie Way Back Home with Julia. Their pairing proved to be such a hit that they worked together again on the top-rating drama series, Princess & I.
4. Khalil Ramos for Princess & I
For Princess & I, the teen queen had three leading men—Enrique, teen king Daniel Padilla, and Khalil. Khalil played her childhood best friend Kiko. The lucky man who'll end up with Kath's character wasn't revealed until the end of the show. She ended up, of course, with the teen king and the rest was history.
