Paulo Avelino is set to portray a new character in the primetime hit soap On the Wings of Love. The actor has expressed his excitement especially that he will be working with the popular JaDine (James Reid and Nadine Lustre) tandem.
“As we all know I am coming in half way, kalahati na yata ng show or hindi ko sure, medyo late na ako papasok, and kumbaga it’s an honor to be part of the cast and to be considered na kasama sa teleseryeng ito lalo na at alam nating hit ang On the Wings of Love. And you know working with the love team I’m excited, I’m pretty excited and na-excite ako sa mabibigay kong bago sa show at hindi totally manggulo [pero] mangyanig at palakasin pa lalo ‘yung On the Wings of Love,” he said in an interview at the media conference of the show.
Paulo will be portraying the role of Simon, an advertising executive who will be the boss of Leah (Nadine Lustre’s character). “Si Simon is kumbaga here On the Wings of Love, he’s a well-known person from an advertising [company], kumbaga he started slowly going up and ngayong pinirate siya to head a new agency, kumbaga he’s brilliant with concepts and creating ones. Hindi naman [siya] mayabang pero he wants everything to be perfect lalo na pag sa work but at the same time may kalungkutan si Simon, parang hes a lonely person.”
When asked if he will be a threat to the love story of Clark (James Reid) and Leah, Paulo briefly responded, “Abangan na lang natin yan.” Is he ready to be bashed considering that he might be the third wheel in Leah and Clark’s story? “You know hindi naman maiiwasan ‘yan. Minsan nadadala talaga tayo sa mga nakikita natin lalo na sa mga characters on TV, kahit naman ako pag may napapanood akong mga show pag may sumisingit, kapag tingin mong may kurot itong isa.”
It is the first time that Paulo will be working with Nadine. When asked by the press on how he finds Nadine’s beauty, he responded, “Her beauty, well, very Pinay, actually I’m very attracted to Pinay looking girls.” Is there a chance that he will have a crush on the actress? “Admire… Marami naman akong ina-admire na beauty pero yeah siguro ganon lang.”
