The Dynamic Phenomenon of Kathryn Bernardo

Kathryn Bernardo has starred in several big television and movie projects. She has also recorded tracks that were certified hits. His love team with Daniel Padilla, collectively known as KathNiel, is one of the biggest love teams ever to be known to the entertainment industry.

The phenomenon of KathNiel is not a fad, as it has been tested time and again to be certified hitmakers both in the small and big screen. It can even be comparable to legendary team ups in the past, including those of Nora Aunor and Tirso Cruz III, Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion, Judy Ann Santos and Wowie de Guzman, Rico Yan and Claudine Baretto, Angelu de Leon and Bobby Andrews, and Jolina Magdangal and Marvin Agustin.

However, Bernardo is yet to prove her capacity to sustain a solo project she can mightily call her own. Although she undoubtedly has her own fan base, and her records sell well, she still has to have something that can be attributed solely to her.

Bernardo’s partner Daniel Padilla already starred in solo projects including the film fest movie Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad. Meanwhile, Bernardo’s phenomenal hits particularly La Luna Sangre and Pangako Sa’yo were attributed, not entirely to her, but also to her co-stars Angel Locsin and Jodi Sta. Maria, respectively.

It is not to say that Bernardo is being left behind as what critics tend to say. In fact, Bernardo’s influence could be bigger than her contemporaries. It is just that the young star has to come up with strategies and reinventions needed for her to be remarkable even in the long run. Likewise, she needed to develop the kind of emotional maturity for her to be truly able to deliver meatier roles in the future.

The dynamism of Bernardo, however, relies on her screen and stage presence. She lights up the stage whenever she dances. Her social media posts always go viral, as she has the backing of her loyal fans. Truth be told, Bernardo may even be one of the most influential young celebrities of today. She just needs to strengthen her influence with adequate stellar performances that will ignite the interest even of non-fans.

Of course, Bernardo needs all the support not only from her fans and her onscreen partner, but also the solid strategic plans from her management. She must be able to have the opportunity to tackle more mature roles that will require her to tap into her potentials as an actress.

Bernardo would not have the longevity in the industry if she is not talented enough. In all fairness, she has everything necessary for a star to truly shine. But everyone must evolve, so is she.

For the most part, Bernardo must capitalize on her dynamism as a performer. In fact, she is one of the talented performers there is — she can act, dance, and sing.

She must not be limited by the challenges given to her. Rather, she must take every opportunity she can to prove everyone that she has so much more to offer.

Among all her rivals and contemporaries, Bernardo may be the most accomplished. She has more successful movies to boast than other teen idols, an album to brag about, and phenomenal hit television series. She just has to show further that she is more than just the country’s undisputed Teen Queen.

By all means, Bernardo has the makings of a Nora Aunor — a celebrity with overflowing mass appeal, with abundant talent to show. If she learns to play her cards well, she might just emerge as the most successful among her peers even in the decades to come.
