Canadian-Filipino singer Darren Espanto finally got his wish to star with his celebrity crush, actress Kathryn Bernardo, alongside actor Daniel Padilla in an upcoming film in September.

Two years ago, an interview of then newbie singer revealed that Bernardo was his showbiz crush, who was already the love team partner of actor Padilla.

On July 6, Espanto confirmed that he will now have his chance to work with the Kapamilya actress in the Star Cinema film, “The Hows of Us,” where he will play as the younger brother of Bernardo’s character.

“I can FINALLY announce that I’m part of the upcoming movie, ‘The How’s Of Us’! Ako po ang magiging kapatid ni Ate Kathryn!” the 17-year-old singer shared.

This will also be his debut in the movie industry.

Espanto rose to fame when he became one of the finalists of the ABS-CBN talent show “The Voice Kids Philippines” in 2014.

From then on, he earned fame for his renditions of “One Moment in Time,” “Somebody to Love,” and “Chandelier.” Espanto launched his first album called “Darren” in 2014.

This year, Twitter Philippines recognized him for being the most-talked about OPM artist, ahead of Nadine Lustre and IV of Spades.
