There was a time when GMA-7’s top guy Dingdong Dantes was in a league with Polo Ravales. Both started out as teen actors in GMA’s most popular teen show then. Now Dingdong has evolved into the leading man of his time, thanks to his studio’s aggressive efforts to up his street cred. On the other hand, Polo seems to have resigned to the fact that he’ll never climb up the ladder in the studio backlot. He has accepted roles in indie cinema, some rather risque, e.g. Walang Kawala. These days, Polo is doing supporting roles on tv, if not the token cute-boy-with-the-great-bod villain.
