Paulo Avelino and KC Concepcion in Maalaala Mo Kaya

Last Saturday, Paulo Avelino, the new Kapamilya leading man, team up for the first time on television with Mega Daughter KC Concepcion, who plays the role of a wife and mother in a ‘Period’ episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK), October 22, as part of the TV drama anthology’s month-long 20th anniversary celebration.

Paulo Avelino plays the role of KC’s husband as ‘Romy.’ He said, working with KC in ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’ was memorable. When he accepted the offer, he had no idea at first that he would be playing opposite KC Concepcion, who breathe to life the character of “Aurora,” a strong-willed woman who stood by the man she loved and worked hard just to make her dreams for her family happen.

Paulo Avelino added that when he learned that KC Concepcion is the lead star, he carefully studied the script and really prepared for all their scenes. “Before I met KC, I thought she was ‘unreachable’ because she is the ‘Mega daughter.’ But when I got to work with her, I learned that she is easy to get along with. For three days during our taping, laughing at random jokes became our ‘bonding moment in the set.”

The actor also shared that he is thankful that he was given the chance to take part in the 20th anniversary celebration of MMK, saying, “I’m a fan of MMK since I was a kid. So it’s a great privilege that now I can say that I’ve been part of the show that I grew up watching.”
