ABS-CBN’s primetime princess Kathryn Bernardo has confessed that she was initially intimidated by the regal presence of award-winning actress Gretchen Barretto in their ‘royal teleserye,’ “Princess and I”.
Kathryn admitted that she was so starstrucked when she had her first scenes with Gretchen, now popularly known as ‘Ashi Behati,’ the despicable mother of Dasho Jao (Enrique Gil).
“I was nervous while doing our sole scene in Bhutan and even until our initial takes here in the Philippines. I was really tensed to work with Ms. Gretchen. Everyone in the set is mesmerized by her beauty,” said Kathryn, who later on realized how fun-loving La Greta is behind the cameras. “She is so cool in the set. She always wants all of us to be happy while working.”
As Kathryn Bernardo and Gretchen Barretto get along well off-screen, the conflict between their characters in the drama series builds up. “Now that the revelation about Mikay’s ‘royal identity’ draws near, I’ll have more scenes with Ashi Behati that the viewers should watch out for,” shared Kathryn.
Can Ashi Behati still prevent everyone from knowing that Mikay is the long lost princess of the Kingdom of Yangdon? What will King Anand (Albert Martinez) do when he finds out that Behati was the mastermind of the accident that killed her queen and endangered her beloved princess?
