Daniel Padilla has one message to Judy Ann Santos’ bashers who are attacking her and her teleserye “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala” because they think it has something to do with the delayed airing of “Got to Believe,” the teen actor’s new series with Kathryn Bernardo.
“Kailangan respetuhin po natin yung mga beteranong artista dahil mga idol po natin iyan at napakabait na mga tao. Siguro naman hindi nila deserve na masabihan ng ganyan, na madaliin ang show nila, dahil sino ba naman ako o si Kathryn kay Judy Ann?” Daniel said in an interview at the launch of Candy’s Daniel fan magazine at SM Sky Dome on Sunday, August 18.
An appeal to fans
The 18-year-old Kapamilya actor asked fans to be more patient in waiting for the airing date of his new teleserye, which reportedly still needs more episodes before it is finally launched.

“Kaya dapat maghintay lang tayo ng maghintay. Hindi naman tayo aabutin nang sampung taon. Mga ilang months lang naman. O kaya kahit three years pa iyan.”
At the press conference of “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala,” Judy Ann took responsibility for the early exit of her teleserye, which is ending this Friday, August 23.
She admitted that she didn’t want to move the teleserye to the fourth timeslot and wanted to finish in its current third timeslot. She explained that her decision had nothing to do with “Got to Believe,” and apologized to Daniel and Kathryn’s fans if ever her show has affected the airing date of the teen performers’ new series.

Daniel returned the compliment Judy Ann gave him and Kathryn when the veteran actress said it is now their moment to shine.
“Oo, pero hindi pa rin, eh. Judy Ann pa rin iyon, hindi natin puwedeng ganunin. At kung time nga namin iyon, hindi pa naman, si Ms. Judy Ann, timeless.”
The sight of hundreds of fans lining up at the mall since early morning just to see him at the fan magazine launch overwhelmed Daniel. But this doesn’t stop him from wanting to top his achievements so far -- a successful teleserye, movie, recording album and concert.
“Lahat iyon ulit, paulit-ulit (gusto kong gawin). Tsaka wala pa akong achievements. Kumbaga, meron, pero kulang.”
He advises his young fans to do well in school.
