    Will Paulo Avelino have butt exposure in the sexy romance-drama, The Lover and the Bride?



    In the ABS-CBN primetime hit Walang Hanggan, Paulo Avelino plays the deceiving Nathan Montenegro, the third party in a love triangle with Julia Montes’ and Coco Martin’s characters. From the outset, the teleserye’s audience is privy to his split personality, which display Paulo’s acting range. From being gentle and reserved, his character quickly changes to a violent one, and even when Nathan acts calm around the meek Katerina (Julia), his eyes communicate rage and hostility inside him.

    Paulo, who delivered a promising performance in the Cinemalaya independent film entry Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa with co-actor Rocco Nacino, is keen on braving roles that will allow his talent to grow.

    This year, he starts working on his second full-length film, The Lover and The Bride, a production under Regal Films to be directed by Joel Lamangan. Paulo stars in this edgy and sexy romance-drama with Jennylyn Mercado and Lovi Poe whose characters will rival each other to win his love. While the script and the characters’s names are yet to be finalized, Paulo interestingly plays another Nathan.

    “I’ve always wanted to play a role I haven’t played in the past,” says Paulo. “Gusto ko talagang i-challenge mismo yung sarili ko.

    “Gusto kong pahirapan yung sarili ko para mas humusay lalo sa aspeto ng pag-arte.”

    In the film, Paulo will portray a coveted bachelor and car company salesman who will be the object of desire of best friends Vivian (Lovi) and Sheila (Jennylyn). Paulo as Nathan will initially cheat on Vivian, his fiancé, with his secret lover who happens to be Sheila.

    As the film deals with revenge and the pitfalls of betrayal, Paulo looks forward to taking on his boldest role yet. “Maliban sa pagka-sexy ng pelikula, mas inaabangan ko kasi yung pagkasulat at yung mga linya, e. It’s really very funny, very sarcastic.”

    The Lover and The Bride involves shooting steamy love scenes with his female co-stars which Paulo laughs at. He tells that butt exposure is not necessary at the moment. “I feel na hindi naman kailangan, e. More on the pag-sexy na part, parang mas sexy talaga yung mga lines, e, yung mga tinginan.”

    Having done pictorials that exposed his lean physique and rocking abs, the 24-year-old actor says he has no reservations in doing sexy roles. However, he tries as much as he can to focus on the acting.

    “If it’s really needed. Ako, hindi ko naman yun nili-limit sarili ko. Mas okay din siguro ngayon na mag-concentrate din ako sa craft ko rin, showing things na hindi pa nakikita sa akin.”

    The Lover and The Bride just recently held its story conference and has yet to start shooting scenes. Paulo is currently studying his character.

    “In this project, it’s very different, e. Siguro one of the best things I could use for my character is the natural-ity because my character is very different talaga from everything I’ve played in the past.

    He plans to bring in “the natural-ity” and “the intensity.”

    In Walang Hanggan, working with Coco Martin has taught Paulo “the levels of intensity,” something he smiled at and did not explain.

    “I’ll just leave it at that.”

    Jennylyn Mercado does not mind doing daring scenes in The Bride & The Lover



    Magkakasunud-sunod ngayong June ang taping sa TV at shooting sa pelikula ni Jennylyn Mercado.



    Sabay magsisimula ang kanyang bagong drama series na Hindi Ka Na Mag-iisa, katambal si Sid Lucero, para sa GMA Afternoon Prime; at ang pelikula niya sa Regal Entertainment na The Bride & The Lover with Lovi Poe, Mikael Daez, and Paulo Avelino.



    ADJUSTMENTS. Matagal na raw hindi nakagawa ng TV series si Jennylyn kaya mag-a-adjust siya ulit sa bagong taping schedule niya.



    Aniya sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), “Three times a week kasi yung taping ng series. E, matagal akong hindi gumawa, di ba? Last ko pa was yung Futbolilits.



    “Pero may special guest role ako sa Makapiling Kang Muli as the young Rio Locsin. Sa pilot week lang naman ako lalabas.



    “Then yung movie, mag-start na rin at the same time.

    “Gusto kasi ni Direk Joel [Lamangan] na simulan na kasi may gagawin siyang TV show sa ibang channel.



    “Yung last movie na ginawa ko was Rosario, pero before that ay yung Working Girls. Pareho ko siyang nagawa noong 2010 pa.



    “Tagal ko na ring hindi nakatrabaho si Direk Joel. Yung last namin was Blue Moon pa noong 2006.

    “My first movie was with Direk Joel din, So Happy Together in 2004.



    “First time ko naman to work sa movie with Lovi Poe, Paulo Avelino, and Mikael Daez.

    “Though nakakasama ko na sila ibang mga guestings sa TV."



    Ayon kay Jennylyn, "very sexy" ang theme ng The Bride & The Lover.

    “Okey lang naman para sa akin kasi nagpaka-daring naman na ako noon sa movie na Rosario.

    “Malaki ang tiwala ko kay Direk Joel,” kampanteng sabi ni Jennylyn.



    HOSTING CHALLENGE.
    Sa kabilang banda, gamay na gamay na ni Jennylyn ang pagiging isang TV host at malaki ang pasasalamat niya sa Showbiz Central para sa pagbibigay sa kanya ng break.



    Nasubukan pa rin ang pagiging TV host niya sa ibang shows ng Kapuso network, 'tulad ng Protégé.

    At sa bagong edition ng Protégé: The Battle For The Big Artista Break, kinuha ulit si Jennylyn para maging host.



    Sabi ng actress-TV host, “Ako ulit ang mag-host ng Inside Protégé. Ako ang magbabalita sa mga mangyayari sa Protégé Headquarters.



    “Na-enjoy ko ang pag-host no’n and masaya ako na ako ulit ang kinuha nila.



    “Kung last year ay mga aspiring singers, this time, mga nangangarap maging artista… na 'tulad namin ang papasok sa Protégé Headquarters.



    “Very comfortable na ako sa hosting talaga. Noon natatakot akong magsalita at baka mali-mali ang masabi ko.

    “Ngayon, kampante na ako. Salamat sa Showbiz Central for giving this break.”



    NEW MUSIC ALBUM. Balik-recording din si Jennylyn with a new CD album for PolyEast Records.

    Six songs lang ang gagawin niya at sa June din niya iyon sisimulan.



    “First love ko naman talaga ang singing. Kaya nagpapasalamat ako sa Party Pilipinas at pinapakanta nila ako every week.



    “Kaya heto, may bagong album akong gagawin.

    “Yung huling ginawa ko was two years ago pa yata titled Love Is... na under Viva Records.



    “This time, all-original songs ang ire-record ko at may isang song doon na iku-compose daw si Martin Nievera.

    “Kaya excited ako to start with the recording kasi matagal ko na rin na hindi nagawa iyon.”



    QUALITY TIME.
    Dahil sa magkakasunod na mga trabaho ni Jen, may time pa ba siya para sa kanyang anak na si Alex Jazz at sa boyfriend niyang si Luis Manzano?



    “Laging may time tayo sa mga taong malapit sa puso natin,”
    ngiti ni Jen.



    “Si AJ, adjusted na siya sa sked ko. Pumapasok na kasi siya sa school kaya may mga iba na siyang interest ngayon. Unlike before na lagi kaming magkasama.

    “Ngayon kasi, may mga friends na siya sa school at lagi naman niyang kasama ang mommy ko.



    “Si Mats [pet name niya kay Luis] naman, happy siya sa sunud-sunod na blessings na dumarating sa akin.

    “Binabalita ko kasi sa kanya at natutuwa siya.



    “Siya pa ang nagsasabi na i-grab ko lahat ‘yan kasi baka hindi na ulit maulit ang mga ‘yan.

    “He’s really very supportive sa mga nangyayari sa akin ngayon.”



    SPORTS BUFF.
    Nahilig na rin sa active sports si Jennylyn 'tulad ng diving, cycling, at tumakbo para sa ilang sports events.

    Magkakaroon pa kaya siya ng time para sa mga ito?



    “Naging part na ‘yan ng routine ko for myself at hindi puwedeng mawawala lahat ‘yan.



    “Makakahanap din tayo ng panahon for that.

    "Passion ko na ang sports kaya kung mabigyan tayo ng free time for that, yun ang gagawin ko.



    “Kaya dapat maayos talaga ang schedules ko…

    “Para makita ko kung saan ko puwedeng maisingit ang mga oras ko for AJ, Luis, and for other activities," saad ni Jennylyn.

    Jennylyn Mercado's role:

    “In the story, I’m the rich publisher of a glossy lifestyle magazine,” Jen says. “Best friends kami ni Lovi from high school. She also comes from a rich family involved in real estate. The title refers to both of us. At first, siya yung bride and I’m the lover of Paulo Avelino. Then na-reverse yun during the story. I become the bride at siya naman yung lover. We’ll both have sexy love scenes with Paulo.”
