MANILA - Actress Maja Salvador greeted former leading man Paulo Avelino on his birthday with a reminder of their European sojourn, leaving fans clamoring for a real romance.

Salvador posted a photo of herself and Avelino frolicking around a lake in Amsterdam to her Instagram account on Friday. She captioned the post "#PauMaj."

Fans took this as a cue to demand Salvador and Avelino, who just turned 28, to reunite onscreen.

A bond to last

In an interview in July 2015, Avelino said he formed a strong bond with Salvador while working with her on "Bridges of Love," a primetime series which aired for six months from March to August of last year. 

"Siyempre may friendship na nabuo kasi dati hindi naman ako kumbaga co-workers lagi pero siyempre bilang magkasama rin kayo sa soap medyo kailangan mo talagang mag-build ng connection para mas swabe 'yung pagtawid ng mga eksena pag magkasama kayo," he explained.

After the soap ended its run, Avelino guested in Salvador's concert at the SM Mall of Asia Arena last November.

She wrote: "To my Carlos Antonio Pau Pau, thank you sobra! Wala ata akong lambing pa sayo na tinanggihan mo. Hindi ko alam kung bakit ang lakas ko rin sa iyo siguro dahil sa pagkain na mga in-offer ko sayo noon sa taping. Pero salamat sa lahat." 

Both Salvador and Avelino are currently single.
