Lea Salonga took to Instagram to urge Paulo Avelino’s fans to see his “stellar” performance in the film Ang Larawan.
“If you’re a fan of Paulo Avelino, I urge you to watch his stellar performance in ‘Ang Larawan.’ He doesn’t sing as well as the others, but his acting! He will be one of the greatest as he continues to grow! Congrats!” she wrote.
In another tweet, the acclaimed Broadway star said, “Hello, Paulo, allow me please to wish you congratulations on your achievement in ‘Ang Larawan.’ Your work was absolutely riveting to watch. Without a doubt, you will be one of the greatest actors of your generation. From your fan, Lea Salonga.”
