Over the weekend, Lea Salonga and Paulo Avelino made headlines after the latter was praised by the Tony Award-winning star for his portrayal in the Metro Manila Film Festival entry Ang Larawan

 

Feeling grateful, the Kapamilya actor took to Twitter to thank her for helping him become confident to take on "more challenging roles."

"Always doubted myself doing a musical part due to the singing parts might affect my performance. Reading messages like this helps build my confidence to tackle even more challenging roles. Thank you @MsLeaSalonga," Paulo wrote in his tweet.

Ang Larawan received numerous awards from the Metro Manila Film Festival 2017 including Best Picture, Best Musical Score, Best Production Design, and the Gatpuno Antonio J. Villegas Cultural Award. Meanwhile, Paulo's co-star Joanna Ampil won the highly-coveted Best Actress Award.
