Paulo Avelino is the star of upcoming Philippine historical epic film “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral”. He portrays Gregorio del Pilar, the youngest General during the Philippine–American War.
With more than a decade in showbiz, Paulo said working on the historical film was a definite highlight of his career, as per a story posted by PUSH.
Paulo shared in an interview that making Goyo was definitely an amazing experience for him but at the same time hard since they were working with 500 to a thousand people. As an actor, Paulo said he was changed after the whole experience.
“This one definitely (changed me) like people change every now and then depending on what they’ve experienced or gone through and it’s the same with actors. We learn from every project. As the saying goes, ‘You are [only] as good as your last project.’ So I try to give something different every time I tackle a new role,” he explained.
Paulo also revealed that apart from acting, he also did some physical preparations for the film. He shared that he lost weight for Goyo and achieved a dark complexion.
The 29-year-old actor also shared the diet and fitness routine he had throughout their shooting.
“I didn’t weigh it pero I was payat [but I was thin],” he shared.
“Ngayon kasi [As of now] there’s no time to work out. I definitely cut down on carbs but I still tried my best to keep a balanced diet and nutrition. I did more cardio all the time. Now I don’t eat meat. It’s been almost three years na. I eat fish from time to time, an ovo pescetarian diet. It’s more of a personal thing. Number one I don’t really enjoy eating animals and I feel sad when I see them crying and about to be slaughtered. Second thing is healthy reasons lang.”
Goyo is a sequel to the commercially successful Heneral Luna, which chronicled Antonio Luna’s life, and is co-written and directed by Jerrold Tarog.
