After being part of the Primetime Bida series Walang Hanggan, Paulo Avelino takes on another acting challenge in the new romantic-comedy series Kahit Konting Pagtingin which also stars Angeline Quinto and Sam Milby.
“Mahirap din. I see it as a challenge. Kumbaga every character I portray, every character I create is a challenge for me. Everything is different here. it’s very fun, very happy, very light. Pressure rin kasi it’s not something easy to do pero masaya siyang gawin. Doon sa Walang Hanggan ang natutunan ko dun is the intensity eh, how far can you go. How far can you give and sa Kahit Konting Pagtingin kung paano mo pasisiyahin yung mga viewers naman. Dahil it’s a very light show, kumbaga paano ko gagawin ito na matutuwa sila na hindi ako OA, na hindi baduy,” he explained.
In the new series, Paulo plays the role of Sam's younger brother who is also vying for Angeline's heart. The talented actor said he will not be pressured by critics comparing him to the singer-actor. “Ako parang kumbaga karangalan na ikumpara ako kay Sam Milby pero ako hindi naman ako nakikipag-kumpetensya kay Sam, tanggap ko na mas guwapo at mas maganda talaga ang katawan ni Sam sa akin (laughs). Sa acting, para sa akin kasi give and take yan eh, kailangan kasi magtulungan kayo sa eksena,” he said.
Paulo also had nothing but good things to say about their new leading lady and even admits it's not impossible for him to develop feelings for her in the future. “Puwede, hindi naman mahirap mahalin yun eh. Sino ba namang tao ang ayaw magmahal ng tao na patatawanin ka araw-araw at pasasayahin ka?” he asked.
The 24 year-old actor admitted that Angeline has many qualities that make her perfect girlfriend material. “Siyempre yung pagiging down-to-earth niya. Yung sabi ni Sam Milby na kung paano mo siya nakikita sa TV ganun din siya pagdating sa totoong buhay. Ganun din siyang tao,” he added.
For this year, Paulo revealed he has a very simple wish. “I want to do another movie and kung bibiyayaan ako ng isa pang teleserye bago magtapos ang taon,” he shared.
The Kapamilya heartthrob also gave a message to his loyal fans. “I hope people can be there to support me and I’m very thankful sa viewers natin dahil sila naman talaga yung dahilan kung bakit ako nabigyan rin ng isa pang teleserye, sila yung dahilan kung bakit napapansin ako. Yan din yung dahilan kung bakit nabibigyan ako ng magandang projects. Nagpapasalamat ako sa inyong lahat,” he said.
