From being named as one of the ‘100 Sexiest Men in the Philippines’ (#5) by Starmometer this year, Paulo is now recognized as a full-fledged actor not only because of his phenomenal role as Nathan in the no. 1 TV program in the Philippines, “Walang Hanggan,” but also after being recognized as the best supporting actor—his first acting award–in the recent 2012 Pasado Awards for the indie film “Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa.”
According to Paulo, his first acting award drives him to improve on his craft even more. “I have to raise the bar higher in terms of acting. With the award, I am more inspired to work harder and prove my worth as an actor,” said Paulo who is set to celebrate his birthday on Sunday (May 13).
Being one of the most sought after leading men in ABS-CBN, Paulo shared that he is so happy with everything that is happening. “I never expected or aimed for popularity. I was already happy that I was given great roles to play,” Paulo said. “But I got to learn fast when I was offered with challenging roles by ABS-CBN—from ‘100 Days to Heaven’ to ‘Wansapanataym’ and ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya.’ These roles served as great preparation for my stint in ‘Walang Hanggan.”
When asked about his ‘secret to success,’ Paulo simply answered: “Hard work and a lot of prayers. Never stop believing, never stop learning, and always stay humble. Of course, I’m very thankful to the support of my network, ABS-CBN.”
Meanwhile, like Paulo’s blooming showbiz career, his character in “Walang Hanggan” continues to move the emotions of its loyal viewers, as Nathan finally shows his true personality in the story. Now that the real identity of Daniel (Coco Martin) is set to be revealed, how will Nathan accept that his greatest rival in Katerina’s (Julia Montes) heart is his own brother? Is this the beginning of a bigger rift between them? Will Nathan’s jealousy worsen his mental condition?
