Ani Lea Salonga, isa raw sa magiging “greatest actors” si Paulo Avelino!
Broadway star and Tony award-winning performer Lea Salonga has without a doubt fallen for the MMFF 2017 Best Picture, Ang Larawan.
“What a feast for the senses and the soul!,” she exclaims.
The film garnered a total of six (6) awards at the MMFF Gabi ng Parangal last December 27, the following being; Best Picture, Best Actress (Joanna Ampil), a Special Jury (Posthumous) Award for Nick Joaquin, the Gatpuno Antonio J. Villegas Cultural Award, Best Musical Score (Ryan Cayabyab), and Best Production Design.
Salonga particularly praised none other than famed actor Paulo Avelino, claiming that although he may not be that of a singer, he was an exceptional actor.
“Hello, Paulo, allow me please to wish you CONGRATULATIONS on your achievement in #AngLarawan. Your work was absolutely riveting to watch. Without a doubt, you will be one of the greatest actors of your generation.”
She signs, “From your fan, Lea Salonga.”
