Star Creatives released a statement on Xian Lim's supposed 'removal' from upcoming teleserye Bridges of Love.
"Due to public clamor, ABS-CBN through the Star Creatives Business Unit is bringing back the loveteam of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim in a primetime teleserye to be launched this year. Because of this development, Xian will not pursue the teleserye “Bridges of Love”, with Maja Salvador and Jericho Rosales. The role of Carlos Antonio in the said series will now be played by Paulo Avelino."
The role was originally said to be for John Lloyd Cruz but the actor asked the management to chose someone else as he is still having talks about his contract renewal with the Kapamilya network.
