If you watched the Thai movie First Love (Crazy Little Thing Called Love) when it was aired in ABS CBN last month, you must be one of those heart’s was captured by the very handsome lead actor, Mario Maurer, who played the role of P’Shonne. And, yes, he is coming in Manila soon!
This is because Mario set a deal with PR Asia Worldwide Agency for being the endorser for local clothing brand, Penshoppe.
After hearing reports about his visit to the country, Mario has been a hot topic in Twitter Philippines. It’s pretty obvious that he had gained a lot of fans here in the Philippines after First Love was shown on TV and it’s not impossible that ABS-CBN will also show interest on Mario to become a Kapamilya star.
There were even rumors about the possibility that Mario may be paired to Kapuso star, Marian Rivera. However, this was later denied by his agency thru PR Asia Worldwide Communications director Joyce Ramirez.The same agency was responsible to bringingGossip Girl actor Ed Westwick to the country last month for a local clothing brand endorsement. Ramirez said thatMario will visit mainly for endorsing, Penshoppe which is the competitor of Marian’s clothing company, Karimadon.
For those who haven’t seen First Love, you may watch it on Youtube. And to get to know Mario better, here’s his profile:
