MANILA, Philippines – Immediately following his stint as Father Alfred in television series "Dahil sa Pag-Ibig," dramatic actor Piolo Pascual is set to take on a "very physical" role in ABS-CBN's next big teleserye.

Pascual, who is down to his last four weeks portraying the conflicted priest, said he is readying to take on conflicts and challenges of more overt form in his newest project with the Kapamilya network.

The Ultimate Heartthrob, whose latest film "Every Breath U Take" saw his team-up with actress Angelica Panganiban, also revealed that he will be paired with the young actress anew in his next TV project.

"I'm supposed to do a soap with Angelica Panganiban. It's drama, maganda 'yung concept, kaya hindi ko rin natanggihan," Pascual said in an interview with ABS-CBN News Friday.

The hunk actor also took pride in the new show's "difficult concept," teasing it will feature a "water element."

"ABS has to come up with new, difficult concepts. It's big, we're going places. [It's] very phsyical, it's physically challenging -- may water element, that's all I can say," he said.

The "water" show, which will also star actor Diether Ocampo, will begin taping right after wrap-up of "Dahil sa Pag-Ibig," Pascual said.

On the last four weeks of his current primetime-starrer, Pascual said he is excited to see all the conflicts in the show meet their resolution.

"We're so excited dahil malapit na matapos. Ito na 'yung part ng soap na pinakamahirap because a lot of revelations, a lot of conflicts will be resolved," he said.

"Dahil sa Pag-Ibig" airs weeknights after "Walang Hanggan" during ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida block.
