Paulo Avelino Admits Coco Martin is His Idol
June 21, 2012 by ABS-CBN
“Walang Hanggan” lead star Paulo Avelino was recently named Best Actor by the 35th Gawad Urian for his remarkable performance in the indie film “Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa.” The same movie gave him his first acting award, the Best Supporting Actor trophy from the 2012 PASADO Awards.
“Winning an ‘Urian’ is indeed a huge milestone,” he said. “It has always been a dream to be recognized by such a prestigious award-giving body, but I never thought that God will give me this blessing this early. That is why I am very thankful to Him.”
As TV viewers continue to praise Paulo’s ability as an actor, critics cannot help but compare him with fellow award-winning actor and “Walang Hanggan” co-star Coco Martin. Paulo said that to be likened with Coco is an honor for him. “Coco is one of the greatest actors today; and he will always be one of the artists that I idolize,” he shared.
Unlike the rivalry of their characters in the drama series, Paulo revealed that he and Coco have a good relationship off-cam. He shared, “Coco is great to work with. He is always ready to help his co-actors during our tapings so we’ll have better scenes.”
Meanwhile, like the blossoming showbiz career of Paulo, the story of “Walang Hanggan” continues to get even more exciting now that Daniel (Coco) is accused to be the mastermind of Jane’s (Rita Avila) death. Will the accusation worsen Nathan’s (Paulo) rage against his brother? How will Nathan’s relationship with Katerina (Julia Montes) be affected when he finds out that his wife is helping his mortal enemy?
