Mr Paulate is a durable actor/star. His talent and achievements cannot be replaced or copied by any actor in showbiz. He is absolutely incomparable. His intelligence, discipline and lovable persona inside and outside of showbiz is admirable. He is a nice guy, a good friend and a loving son (as everyone knows). I will forever be an avid fan of Mr Paulate. I wish the industry can produce more stars like him...just a wish:)
