Paulo still adjusting as ABS-CBN talent-A A +A
Saturday, January 12, 2013
ACTOR Paulo Avelino said he is still adjusting in ABS-CBN one year after his transfer, but grateful to the network for big work opportunities.
Paulo's name started to make a big buzz on TV when he portrayed the character of Nathan on hit primetime series "Walang Hanggan" with Julia Montes and Coco Martin.
According to him, he never expected the impact it will bring to his career.
"Never kong in-expect ganun kalakas at kalaki yung pagtanggap ng tao sa akin. Malaki yung nabago sa buhay ko. Pagnaglalakad ako sa kalsada tinatawag na din akong Nathan."
Paulo added that he's still not used to people calling his name in public and believes he's still adjusting to his new life in channel 2.
"Naninibago parin kasi napakalaki (ng station), parang ibang mundo ang ABS. Napakaraming tao, napakaraming ginagawa. I'm still adjusting kahit one year na."
"Kaya ako lumipat kasi gusto kong lumabas sa comfort zone ko. Yun din naman ang nangyari kasi sa paglipat ko sa ABS, binigay nila sa akin si Nathan, which hindi naman karaniwang ginagampanan sa mga serye."
When asked to react on his detractors and those people saying he already changed since his transfer, the actor replied:
"I've always been the same. I've always been quiet. Bilang medyo nakikilala na din ako, napapansin na din kung anong kaya ko, nabibigyan lang ng ibang kulay... ibang meaning."
Right now, Paulo is back on the boob tube via "Kahit Konting Pagtingin" with Sam Milby and Angeline Quinto, which is slated to be released this month.
"When they presented this concept to me and my management, nagustuhan naman kasi something different. Gusto mo din mawala sa tao yung mga kasamaan na nagawa ni Nathan. Dito babawi sa story."
"I'm just thankful na I'm very blessed and I was given 'Walang Hanggan.' For 2013, siguro expect to do more movies and teleseryes with ABS-CBN. If not in daytime, maybe in primetime again."
This year Paulo will be doing "The Bride and The Lover" with Lovi Poe and Jennylyn Mercado under Regal Films and independent film "Debosyon" in the upcoming 2013 Cinemalaya.
