Daniel Padilla ABS-CBN's 'next big thing'?

Kapamilya teen actor Daniel Padilla, son of actor Rommel Padilla and singer/actress Karla Estrada, is getting lots of TV exposure these days. He is currently part of ABS-CBN's teenserye “Growing Up,” playing the character of a bad boy heartthrob named Patrick Rivero.

The 16 year-old actor is also a member of Parking 5, a band composed of young boys, who's popular for its revival of the Beatles hit song “Twist and Shout.”

Daniel guested on the highly-rated talk show Gandang Gabi Vice (GGV) last Sunday, September 25, together with his co-Growing Up cast members Neil Coleta and Diego Loyzaga.

One fan was very lucky to have partnered with Daniel in a challenge/task given to the latter by the show's host, Vice Ganda.

After GGV, netizens immediately turned to the internet to express disappointment over Daniel's brief appearance. Some complained that they were uncontented and wanted to see the teen actor on the show even longer.

Daniel became a search trend on Yahoo! Philippines the following day, which means more and more fans got interested on him and have searched for relative information including his biography and photos.

Do you think he will become ABS-CBN's next big thing?
