The award-winning actress went on to enumerate all the ways Kathyrn has become a pleasant "surprise" for her and thanked her for it.
"So before our film hits the world, let me thank you for being there for me, always looking out for me, supporting me in my other projects (a little birdie told me about the block screening of Iti - ikaw talagaaaa), for being inclusive and making me feel comfortable in situations I’m not used to, for making me laugh and for just being your crazy little you,” she continued.
“Many things are good and great about our film but you were the best ‘surprise!’ of them all.”
“Thank you, Kath. Forever an honor. Forever on your side (alam mo yan). Love you to the moon and back,” she concluded her post.
