Paulo Avelino Career
2013-present: Recent and future projects
Avelino started the year 2013 in the pre-primetime series Kahit Konting Pagtingin, together with Angeline Quinto and Sam Milby.
He appeared on two independent films for Cinemalaya. The first was directed by Alvin Yapan and was titled Debosyon. He explained that he signed up on the film because of the surreal and magical treatment of the story about faith, religion and forbidden love. The dialogue is written in very poetic Bicolano. The other one was directed by Jerrold Tarog titled as Sana Dati, a bizarre story of a videographer and a bride.
He appeared as leading man of actresses Lovi Poe and Jennylyn Mercado on a highly charged erotic-drama romantic comedy film directed by Joel Lamangan, The Bride and the Lover.
Avelino later returned on the small screen with two Maalaala Mo Kaya episodes: “Notbook” and the first tandem with Angel Locsin on “Mask”. Avelino did a tandem to Locsin after reports surfaced that he allegedly refused to work with the actress.
He had backed out of Locsin’s upcoming series The Legal Wife (formerly Hanggang Kailan Kita Mamahalin) which they were supposed to headline. Avelino appeared in a lead role in the family drama series Honesto, wherein he reunited with his Walang Hanggan co-stars Melissa Ricks and Noni Buencamino.
He also appeared on a romantic-comedy film directed by Chris Martinez titled Status: It’s Complicated, with Jake Cuenca, Solenn Heussaff, Maja Salvador, and veteran comedian Eugene Domingo. The movie is inspired and remaked by the 1979 classic sexy-comedy film Salawahan directed by Ishmael Bernal. In the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival, he appeared in two entries: a lead role on Star Cinema’s horror film Pagpag and a cameo in Kimmy Dora: The Quantum of Kiyeme.
In 2014, he starred as part of the main cast of Sana Bukas pa ang Kahapon, with Bea Alonzo and Albert Martinez.
