Paul Salas Happy With His First Soap As A Balikbayan Kapuso, 'Kara Mia'

PAUL SALAS started his career with GMA-7 as a discovery of Starstruck Kids in 2004 (where Miguel Tanfelix was the winner) and he was featured in the hit telefantasya, “Mulawin”. But in 2008, he moved to ABS-CBN to do “Kung Fu Kids” and stayed with them until last year when he returned to GMA-7.

He appeared as guests in various Kapuso shows like “Magpakailanman”, “Tadhana”, “Maynila” and “Wish Ko Lang”. He now finally stars in a primetime teleserye, “Kara Mia, as one the leading men. How does he feel about it? “I’m really very grateful sa GMA for giving me the opportunity to be part of ‘Kara Mia’. Pero nakaka-pressure din kaya nandun yung excitement ko, yung eagerness ko na maipakita ko sa kanilang I deserve yung pagtitiwala nila sa akin,” Paul says.

It’s common knowledge that he had a bad breakup with his girflriend at ABS-CBN, Barbie Imperial. As luck would have it, he now gets to work with another Barbie at GMA, Barbie Forteza. How does he feel about this? Has he moved on or does he still have communication with his ex-Barbie?

“Pakiusap lang po, let’s focus na lang sa presscon ng ‘Kara Mia’,” he requests. “Sa ngayon talaga, career ko lang ang priority ko. Gusto ko talagang makatulong para sa ikagaganda ng aming show. Personally, masaya naman po ako ngayon. Work talaga ang main concern ko, wala ng iba pa.”

He’s happy to work again with Mika de la Cruz. “Pareho kasi kaming galing sa ABS at nagkagtrabaho na kami before sa ‘You’re My Home’, so friends na kami talaga. At ngayon, ang boyfriend niyang si Nash Aguas, best friend ko rin, barkada ko talaga, and I’m so happy for them.”

In “Kara Mia”, he plays the role of Chino, the cousin of Jak Roberto as Boni. He’s a rich spoiled brat who will capture the attention of Barbie Forteza as Kara and this will cause friction between him and Jak who’s also in love with Barbie. “Maganda po ang samahan namin sa taping ng show and we’re all praying na magustuhan sana ito ng viewers at maging maganda ang resulta sa ratings,” says Paul.
