Is Paulo Avelino searching for a new love?
030315-paulo_mainphoto.jpgAfter starring in numerous teleseryes that tested his capability as an actor, Paulo Avelino remarked that his role in the upcoming soap Bridges of Love is his most challenging to date. He further stated that the show will offer the televiewers a one of a kind story that has not yet told on primetime television until now.

“When this role was presented to me, exciting dahil bago kasi ‘yung character ko dito, it’s different from other characters I’ve done before pati ‘yung istroya, ‘yung arc ng istorya, sobrang ganda at parang kahit ako na-excite ako sa mangyayari,” he stated.

Paulo said that he is ecstatic to work with Maja Salvador again. She was his co-star in the movie Status It’s Complicated. Meanwhile, the actor couldn’t hide his joy to be given the opportunity to work with Jericho Rosales who he admitted is someone he looks up to in the industry.

“It's my second time to work with Maja and I’m very excited to work with Maja again. I know she’s a good actress and with Echo, ayon I’m very excited also dahil matagal ko na rin siyang gustong makatrabaho, isa talaga siya sa tinitingala kong artista dito sa dos, hindi lang dahil sa magaling siyang umarte kundi parang in a way nasubaybayan ko rin ‘yung buhay niya bilang artista.”

Paulo will be playing the role of Carlos Antonio. The actor shared that his character has a very complicated life. “Si Carlos Antonio kumbaga iba rin ‘yung hirap na pinagdaanan niya, lahat ng minamahal niya iniiwan siya kaya paglaki niya sobrang naging tigas, sobrang sa tingin niya kaya niya lahat, kaya niya bilhin lahat ng tao. Lalaking-lalaki ‘yung role,” he relayed.

Adding to the pressure and the challenge of playing his complicated role are Paulo’s intimate scenes with Carmina Villaroel who is also part of the show. “Medyo dahil ‘yun ang isang kagandahan sa show na ito parang intertwined lahat ng characters, parang magkakadikit lahat and at some point magkakaroon ng certain connection kahit hindi mo iisipin na parang malabong mangyari pero nangyayari dahil nga may tumutulay lagi.”

He relayed that both of them treat it as professionally as possible which made the scenes not too difficult to execute. “Nahihiya ako actually kay Carmina pero at the end of the day she made me [feel comfortable], parang baliktad eh, ayon tinrato lang namin as professionals and sinunod lang din namin ‘yung bilin at utos ng direktor namin which is we were true to the script,” he said.

In an exclusive interview with Paulo during the live Kapamilya chat, the actor shared that he can somewhat relate to his character especially when it comes to finding love.  “Ayun siguro makaka-relate ako to my character sa siguro, kahit naman siguro lahat ng tao may kulang, may kulang lagi na hinahanap mo na hindi mo alam, ‘yun siguro, ‘yung kumbaga hinahanap natin sa buhay, hindi ko alam kung pag-ibig ba,” he briefly stated.

Paulo has been romantically linked to KC Concepcion.  Their last appearance together was in a Gandang Gabi Vice episode in January. Paulo admitted on the show that they have a special connection. “Si KC naman if you look at her she's very formal, but kapag nakausap mo siya, kahit sa staff niya, kung makipagusap siya as a normal person ... We started naman as friends talaga tapos nagkaroon ng connection. We have something special," Paulo said.

But KC stressed that they are not putting a label on their relationship status to avoid the pressure of commitment. "Di sure kung itutuloy ng super todo,” KC said in the interview with GGV host Vice Ganda.
