PAULO ANGELES has been a Star Magic talent since 2014 and he played supporting roles in a lot soaps. 

When ABS-CBN lost its franchise, he was jobless for a while but TV5 got him to play Elijah Canlas’s cousin named Barok in their primetime drama, “Suntok sa Buwan”.

He also became Elijah’s rival over the attention of Maris Racal. 

So how is it working with Elijah and with Aga Muhlach who plays Elijah’s father? 

“Pareho silang napakagaling umarte so I feel very fortunate to be given the chance to work with both of them,” he says. 

“We shot the show lock in on location in Baguio at roommates kami ni Elijah sa hotel at nagkasundo kami agad so we bonded well. 

"Magaling talaga siya umarte at ang dami na niyang awards kahit bata pa siya, so sabi ko sa kanya, turuan mo naman akong umarte.”  

How about Aga? 

“Sir Aga is so friendly, considering his stature in the industry. 

"Masaya siyang katrabaho. Laging nagpapatawa sa set. 

"Sobrang generous din siya in giving us tips not only about acting but about showbiz and life in general.”

Is he happy with the way his career is going?  

“I was only 14 when I joined showbiz and now, I just turned 25 on October 27. 

"I was part of Hashtags in ‘Showtime’. I played a lead role in an episode of ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’ and in a series with Barbie Imperial in iWant, but I’d say my career has not really taken off. 

"Last year, habang walang trabaho dahil sa pandemic, I went back to school online, taking up public administration at Trinity College.”  

It was his parents who asked him to continue his college studies. 

“I’m the second of three sons at yung kuya ko, tapos na ng medicine, and yung sumunod sa akin is now taking up his masters. 

"So my parents said I better go back to school para may diploma rin ako kasi nga showbiz is so unstable. 

"But I’m glad naging part ako of a great show like ‘Suntok sa Buwan’ that will have its very touching ending on December 8, so don’t miss it dahil tiyak na maiiyak kayo.”
