Manolo Pedrosa will figure in a love triangle with Janella Salvador and Marlo Mortel for their new show titled Oh My G.
“Yung alam ko lang po is yung love team po namin ni Marlo and Janella [ang ipapakita sa show]."
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at a recent product launch of JBL-Harman at Ascott Global City, Manolo described his role in the 2015 teleserye.
“Yung character name ko po is Harry. Ano siya, yung nakita ko po yung description, 'devil with a smile of an angel,'" revealed Manolo with a laugh.
“So pang ano siya parang maangas na tao, pero mukha siyang mabait so dapat lagi nakaangas look ako so parang ganun. E, mahirap kasi lagi ako naka-smile.
DEVILISH ANGEL. Manolo will be paired once again with Janella in Oh My G. They previously worked with each other on the drama anthology show Maalaala Mo Kaya. In that MMK episode titled "Selfie," Manolo played Hiro Mallari whose girlfriend Michelle Ann “Mitch” Bonzo passed away in the Bulacan State University field trip tragedy.
Since his role is now more “devilish” and "maangas," can fans expect more daring scenes, and perhaps a kissing scene between him and his leading lady Janella?
“Siyempre as an actor dapat ready for anything. So ako I’m gonna be like that I’m gonna be ready for anything po. I’ll go with the flow po if ever may ganun po."
The actor also revealed he and his fellow Pinoy Big Brother All In ex-housemate Maris Rascal will be working on an indie film soon. They are slated to begin shooting soon.
“We haven’t seen each other in a long time na pero may upcoming movie kami na indie film po called Stars Versus Me.
"Kami po ni Maris yung lead dun. More to come pa."
PMPC AWARD. Though he’s still a newbie in the industry, Manolo already has an award under his belt. He took home the Best New Male TV Personality award at the 28th Star Awards for TV for his role in Maalaala Mo Kaya: “Selfie.”
“Sobrang nagulat po ako kasi mga kalaban ko si JK [Juan Karlos Labajo] sa MMK rin niya, so grabe di ko talaga na-expect pero sobrang happy ko kasi sobrang daming blessings na nangyayari sa akin so sobrang grateful po ako.
The actor also admitted he was hoping to win the award.
“Kasi sobrang hirap ng MMK na ginawa ko kasi kalalabas ko lang sa PBB tapos one day workshop lang yun so pinaghirapan ko talaga. So siguro may pagka-hope rin...
"Di naman na di ko lahat in-expect pero may pagka-hope na rin ako na mananalo."
With an upcoming TV series and film underway plus an acting award under his belt, Manolo can be considered one of the rising stars to watch for in showbiz.
While inside the PBB house, Manolo was linked to his fellow housemate Maris prompting fans to dub their tandem as "MarNolo" and "ManoRis."
The actor reveals shyly that he’s single right now and isn’t courting anyone.
“As of now wala po,” he stressed. "No, wala talaga po.”
