Malvino Salvador Voted Actor Of The Year

Malvino Salvador was voted Actor Of The Year by the readers of DOM magazine. He is featured on the cover of the December issue, which celebrates the magazine's first anniversary and the 10 Men Of 2008.


I posted last month that DOM was dropped by Editora Peixes because of the publisher's recent financial problems and restructuring. I am happy to report today that the magazine is already in talks with another investor and publisher, and will not fold after the December issue. As soon as I know more about where DOM is headed to, you will be the first to know.

Exclusive pictures of Malvino for DOM coming tomorrow.
