It is possible that Polo Ravales will soon be seen on ABS-CBN after he confirmed that he and his manager Manny Valera met with some of the network’s executives.
Polo has been a contract artist of GMA-7 for so long, but he’s no longer exclusively with them. That’s why there were rumors before that ABS-CBN is interested to offer a project to Polo.
He doesn’t have any idea yet what ABS-CBN can offer. He’s hoping that they have something good to lay on the table for him.
Even though his contract with the Kapuso network expired in 2013, Polo was still able to do “Kambal Sirena” and the bayaniserye “Ilustrado” with Alden Richards and Kylie Padilla.
He’s happy to be a part of “Ilustrado” because it’s an important series, and the cast are all stellar. Their costumes were scrutinized even down to the smallest detail, he said.
Polo will play one of Alden’s classmates in Europe. They have different values and beliefs. Polo’s character is against the Indios and always puts Pepe’s (Alden) life at risk.
It’s the best character he ever did on television, Polo said, adding that “Ilustrado” would be a perfect ending to cap of his career run with GMA-7.
Polo has been with the network for 19 years, and he has always been thankful for the opportunities they gave him. He was never choosy with roles because he loves challenging himself.
He’s proud of all the roles he did for the network. “Hindi naman siguro masama kung naisin kong magtrabaho naman sa ibang network at makatrabaho naman ang mga artista nila roon.”
Polo started his career in 1995 as one of the cast members of the second batch of the youth-oriented series “T.G.I.S.” that also catapulted to popularity the likes of Sunshine Dizon, Antoinette Taus, Kim Delos Santos, Dino Guevarra and Dingdong Dantes.
Polo and Sunshine were in a loveteam before, and they did some movies such as “Kiss Mo ‘Ko” and “Honey My Love So Sweet.” They also did the series “Annakarenina” together.
Polo also did the following shows: “Click,” “Halik Sa Apoy,” “Super Klenk,” “Ang Iibigin Ay Ikaw,” “Encantadia,” “Hanggang Kailan,” “Majika,” “Now & Forever,” “Lupin,” “La Vendetta,” “Pasan Ko Ang Daigdig,” “Maging Akin Ka Lamang,” “Gagambino,” “Darna,” “Panday Kids,” “Basahang Ginto,” “Magic Palayok,” “Grazilda,” “Machete,” “Sinner Or Saint,” “Hiram Na Puso,” “Unforgettable,” “Pyra Babaeng Apoy” and “Genesis.”
