After earning praise for his performance as Cairo in “Gameboys,” actor Elijah Canlas will be seen next in the upcoming TV5 Christmas teleserye “Paano Ang Pasko,” a trailer of which has just been released today.

Without revealing much information, production outfit The IdeaFirst Company teased fans with a music video trailer launched earlier today, Nov. 7, on its social media pages. The teaser depicts the cast in some emotionally-charged scenes.


In the series, Canlas will be flexing his acting chops alongside veteran stars led by Ricky Davao, Maricel Laxa, Julia Clarete and Allan Paule. Actors Beauty Gonzales, Ejay Falcon, John Sweet Lapus, Matt Evans, Danita Paner, Devon Seron, Cedrick Juan, Ace Ismael and Justine Buenaflor complete the star-studded cast.


The music video trailer was of the show’s theme song, “Pasko na Sinta Ko,” performed by Pinoy Pop Superstar champ Jona Viray to the arrangement of Jonathan Manalo. The song, already a Filipino Christmas classic and originally made famous by Gary Valenciano, was composed by Aurelio Estanislao and Francis Dandan.

The Jun Robles Lana-created series, helmed by directors Eric Quizon, Davao and Perci Intalan, will premiere on Nov. 23.

In “Paano Ang Pasko,” Canlas and Lana work together again after the first season of hit Boys’ Love series “Gameboys” and the successful release of the movie “Kalel, 15.”

The young actor grabbed his first international best actor award in Rome’s Asian Film Festival earlier this year for his role as the HIV-afflicted titular character of the said film. JB
