MANILA, Philippines - Actor Paulo Avelino does not mind being compared to actor Sam Milby, his co-star in ABS-CBN's upcoming series "Kahit Konting Pagtingin."
"Kung baga karangalan na ikumpra ako kay Sam Milby," Avelino told ABS-CBNnews.com on Thursday.
Avelino also stressed that he is not competing with the former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate.
"Ako hindi naman ako nakikipag-kumpetensiya kay Sam. Tanggap ko naman na mas gwapo at mas maganda ang katawan ni Sam sa akin," he added.
Asked if he also believes that Milby is a better actor than him, Avelino said: "Yung acting naman give and take 'yan. Kailangan kasi magtulungan kayo sa eksena hindi kayo nagsasapawan."
The actor said he is just excited to work with Milby and their leading lady Angeline Quinto.
"Kung paano mo kasi siya nakikita ganoon din siyang tao, natural," Avelino said of Quinto.
In "Kahit Konting Pagtingin," Avelino plays Lance, the brother of Adam (Milby), who will fall in love with Aurora (Quinto).
"Kahit Konting Pagtingin" is set to premiere soon on ABS-CBN.
