Paulo’s 1st movie for Star Cinema
Rosalinda L. Orosa (The Philippine Star) - December 29, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Paulo Avelino stars in his first film under Star Cinema together with Regal Films in Pagpag, Siyam Na Buhay.

Written by Joel Mercado and directed by Frasco Mortiz, Pagpag is inspired by the ancient Filipino folklore anchored on the superstitious belief that one should not go directly home after visiting a wake lest bringing home evil spirits. It is the only horror movie to participate in this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival and it marks the historic team-up between Star Cinema and Regal Films in 20 years.

With his notable achievements on TV as evident in his unforgettable performances on top-rating soaps such as Walang Hanggan, Kahit Konting Pagtingin and Honesto, Paulo is one of the hottest ABS-CBN young actors. Pagpag is a career milestone that showcases Paulo’s versatility as an actor as he joins the movie’s ensemble cast led by Daniel Padilla, Shaina Magdayao and Kathryn Bernardo.

“I’ve done several horror films but Pagpag is very special since this is my first with Star Cinema,” says Paulo. “I bonded with the cast and crew and learned from my co-actors and of course, from direk Frasco. We devoted a lot of time and effort in ensuring that this will be an unforgettable movie worth watching with family and friends this holiday season.”
