Princess and I
Following the success of Growing Up, KathNiel became an established love team as they starred in a royally-themed romance series, Princess and I. It was the first Filipino show to be shot in Bhutan.
Got To Believe
KathNiel continued to widen their fanbase by starring in the number one primetime show in 2012. Got To Believe opened more doors for the love team as it became a television hit.
Movies, movies, and more movies
More career opportunities opened for KathNiel as they appeared in several movies such as 24/7 in Love, Sisterakas, Must be… Love, Pagpag, and the movie adaptation of Bianca Bernardino’s best-selling novel, She’s Dating the Gangster.
Pangako Sa’yo and La Luna Sangre
The couple took on more mature roles as they starred in the 2015 remake of the classic teleserye, Pangako Sa’yo, which was originally aired in 2000.
They also became a part of the hit primetime bida show, La Luna Sangre, which also starred Angel Locsin
The success of The Hows of Us
After starring in more movies after She’s Dating the Gangster, KathNiel reached new heights with their 2018 film, The Hows of Us.
Because of this, they were recognized as Phenomenal Box Office Stars and were given the Golden Jury Award and honors at the 50th Guillermo Box Office Entertainment Awards. They also received the prestegious Camera Obscura Award.
The move broke multiple records in the local entertainment industry, including being one of the first locally produced movies to reach Php600 million in domestic earnings in a matter of 20 days. The film then grossed Php803 million under 50 days.
KathNiel confirmed their long-term relationship
In August 2018, the couple finally confirmed that they have been in a relationship for “more than 5 years.”
“It’s a 24 hour job na maging malupit na boyfriend. ‘Di puwedeng nagiging komportable ka, kasi once na maging komportable ka, wala ka nang gagawin,” Daniel opened up during the press conference of The Hows of Us.
In October last year, this power couple opened their first-ever business together, a barbershop called Barbero Blues.
