MANILA -- Actor Paulo Avelino will finally be working with actress Angel Locsin for the first time on an episode for ABS-CBN's top-rating drama anthology "Maalaala Mo Kaya."
Avelino is doing an "MMK" episode with Locsin after reports surfaced that he allegedly refused to work with the actress.
The "Walang Hanggan" actor had backed out of Locsin's upcoming series which has the working title "Hanggang Kailan Kita Mamahalin," which they were supposed to headline.
But in a previous interview, Locsin said she understands that Avelino has an important personal matter to attend to.
“Sinabi sa akin na hindi nga daw matutuloy. May common friend kami na nag-explain na mayroon yatang personal problem si Paulo na kailangan niya i-prioritize. Hindi ko alam kung nai-share niya sa inyo, pero 'yun lang ang masasabi ko. Naiintindihan ko naman iyon, kailangan niya talaga unahin 'yun,” she said.
Also part of the upcoming series are Maja Salvador and Jericho Rosales.
In her official Twitter account on Monday, Locsin confirmed that she's now taping "MMK" with Avelino.
