Some fans may consider the goofy Kiko in the 2015 flick Crazy Beautiful You as Daniel Padilla’s best role to date. Others might still be in love with the adorable Joaquin of the 2014 television series Got to Believe while others can’t get over the dashing Ely in his most recent blockbuster, Barcelona: A Love Untold.
But if you ask Daniel, he does not have a favorite character. “Ang hirap kasi nang may favorite kasi iba-iba ang characters. Wala kang magiging favorite talaga,” he tells Inside Showbiz Weekly.
The 21-year-old does not consider one project as more memorable than the other. “Lahat naman kasi different ‘yung experience. Every [project na] bigay sa ‘yo, bago na naman. Para sa akin, parating iba. Hindi ‘yung tipong ikukumpara ko ‘yung bago doon sa last.”
He stresses that he makes sure to choose his roles well and essay them the best way he can. “Gusto ko laging may puso ‘yung character ko. I mean, nagkakamali pero at the end of the day, may puso talaga.” He adds that there is a part of him in every character he plays. “Kay Ely, pareho kami sa pamilya, ‘yung sobrang mahal na mahal ang pamilya, tutulungan ang pamilya. Kay Kiko naman, ‘yung pagiging magulo ko. Doon naman kay Kenji sa She’s Dating the Gangster, nandoon naman ‘yung pagiging misteryoso ko.”
