Kris Bernal recently joined the cast of the GMA7 show, Machete. This marked Kris Bernal's reunion with the show's lead actor Aljur Abrenica who was his "love team" for quite sometime. This said to have led Bela Padilla to feel insecure during the set.
Bela Padilla clarified the issue saying, “Sa tingin ko kasi nasa kalove team mo ‘yon kung meron kang dapat ika-insecure," Bella told 24 Oras. “E Aljur naman pinapa-feel niya na secure kami sa posisyon namin sa show," she added.
On the same interview Aljur also said, “Wala namang dapat na ma-insecure dahil dito sa Machete ang original love team naman is kami ni Bela."
Kris Bernal, however, admitted that she was the one who felt awkward at first.
“Kasi hindi naman po ako close kay Ryza (Cenon) pati kay Bela, so naiilang po ako nung una. Pero nagulat po ako talagang ang bait nila sa’ken," Kris share.
Kris Bernal will be playing the role of Jessa, a damsel in distress who rescues a severely injured Dakila/Machete (Aljur Abrenica) after engaging in an epic battle with Karum (Ryan Eigenmann). As Jessa nurses Machete's wounds, the ancient warrior will protect Jessa from her overbearing father who wanted to marry her off to man she doesn't love.
