While some people consider immortality a welcome gift, it just isn’t for Paulo Avelino.

“Parang ayaw kong mabuhay ng ganoon katagal kasi ayokong nakikitang nawawala ang minamahal ko sa buhay tapos magsisimula ka ulit,” he explained.

Paulo’s view is anchored on the life of the character he portrays on “The Promise

Of Forever,” who will live through centuries in different guises as Lorenzo, Nicolas, Emil and Lawrence.

He shared his realization in doing the soap.

“Na dahil nga hindi pang-habang panahon itong buhay na biniyaya sa atin, we should live in the moment. Mas natuto akong i-appreciate ang here and now.”

With his character falling in love with co-star Ritz Azul’s Sophia over and over again, we asked if he is as focused when in love.

He answered, “Ako pagkatapos ng relasyon binibigyan ko ng oras ang sarili ko para maintindihan ko kung nasa akin ba ang mali, o kung ano pa ang dapat i-improve ko, kung ano ang dapat kung itama.”

Paulo only has good words for Ritz.

“Suwerte ang sinumang mapapangasawa niya dahil very loyal siya, very loving sa family… doon mo makikita sa mga traits na ’yun kung anong klase siyang tao. Mabuti siyang tao deep inside and makikita rin ito kung paano siya umasta at magtrabaho.”

Among the four identities of his character on the series, he relates to Lawrence and Nicolas, because they are more (in the) “now.”

“Modern na si Lawrence at si Nicolas kasi, medyo close ’yung time sa ngayon. Ang sarap mabuhay na ang dami mo ng alam, ang dami mo ng na-experiences, ang dami mo ng pinag-aralan or knowledge,” he said.

If there is one person he would like to live forever, it’s Albert Einstein. “Kasi ’yung mga taong katulad niya ang daming ginawa para i-lift ang humanity. Ang laki ng itinulong nila. What if habang buhay sila at patuloy silang mag-eksperimento at patuloy silang naghahanap ng ikauunlad ng mga earthlings?”
