PAULO AVELINO is enjoying the back-to-back acting awards that he won recently. 

“The pandemic has been very challenging to everyone, but despite the challenges, I have a lot to be thankful for," he says.  

“It’s always inspiring to be honored for your hard work as an actor.”

Paulo has won four back-to-back acting trophies in the past few months.  

Last December, he has won Best Actor in the Metro Manila Film Festival Awards for his portrayal of a dysfunctional and troubled version of himself in the film “Fan Girl”, a film that not only received much critical acclaim, but was also one of the topgrossing films in the said festival. 

It also later became a top trending when shown in the streaming channel, Netflix.  

Paulo then bagged another Best Actor trophy at the 4th EDDYS Awards (Entertainment Editors’ Choice) last April for the same role. 

In June, he was honored with two Best Actor awards at the 23rd Gawad Pasado Awards:  Best Actor for Film for his performance in “Fan Girl”, and Best Actor for Television for his work in the ABS-CBN Kapamilya drama “Walang Hanggang Paalam”.

“All these honors inspire me to do even better work for all my upcoming acting projects,” adds Paulo. 

“Right now, I’m busy with new work for another teleserye for ABS-CBN and Dreamscape.  It’s a new light drama series entitled ‘Marry Me, Marry You’.”

It’s his first time to be paired on TV with new ABS-CBN leading lady and award winning actress Janine Gutierrez. 

They portray a newly-married couple whose eyes are later opened to the troubles and changing expectations of married life. 

Aside from his acting work, Paulo is turning his passion for online gaming into a business.  

He has partnered with young businessmen to run Lupon WxC, a company that broadcasts online games and events to the growing number of gamers.  He also helps run and manage Execration,  an E-sports tam.  

“I’m thankful that these businesses are all doing well, especially now that more people have more time to pursue online gaming at home,” he says. 

Indeed, a lot more busy days are in store for Paulo.
