Jericho Rosales hopes to make it in Hollywood via his film 'Subject I Love You'


041911-jericho_main.jpgJericho Rosales happily shared that he’s all set to attend Newport Beach International Film Festival for the premiere of his first international film Subject I Love You; which also stars Briana Evigan (Step Up 2), Dean Cain (Superman), Kristen Bauer (True Blood), Apl De Ap (Black Eye Peas) together with other Filipino actors Joel Torre and Gary Valenciano. “Meron akong trip to LA at end of the month para sa premiere ng Subject I Love You. Pinagdadasal ko talaga na it could open doors not just for me but for my fellow Filipino artists. I’m sure I’m not the first (Pinoy to star in an international film), pero hopefully mabigyan ako ng break, may makapansin sa atin dun na producer, kung ano man…kahit mag-audition ako gagawin ko,” said Jericho during his recent press con for Advil.

After shooting the film two years ago, Jericho shared that he actually got an invitation from the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) which could have paved the way for him to penetrate Hollywood. “Medyo kinilig ako nun kasi after shooting the film, naka-receive ako ng letter from SAG, parang invitation to join their organization. Nothing big for the actors there, pero for me parang, whaaat? Sobrang nagtatatalon ako sa tuwa, tapos pinakita ko sa nanay ko... Pero merong konting problem e, hindi ka pwedeng tumanggap ng local projects kapag SAG member ka ‘di ba? So medyo sad lang. But to be given that opportunity itself, sobrang laking privilege na for me.”

Because in spite of his dream to make it abroad, Jericho stressed that leaving his showbiz career in the country is not something he would consider at this point in time. “Pangarap ko makaabot ako sa Hollywood at makagawa ng ibang pelikula kung saan man ako bigyan ng break. And unti-unti nagkakatotoo yun. Before nakagawa ako ng film sa Malaysia, nag-film kami sa Brussels, nakapunta ako ng Korea at kahit sa mga teleserye ko, nakakapagabroad ako…little steps pero para sa akin big achievement na yun, counted para sa akin yun. But I will never leave my career here in Manila kasi nandito talaga yung puso ko e. But if God tells me to expand, then sige dun muna ako. But I am going to make sure na hindi ko papabayaan yung trabaho ko dito.”

In the meantime, Jericho is content with the fact that he is able to pursue both his acting and musical career. “I am so excited about Subject I Love You. Hindi ko alam kung anong gagawin ko sa press con dun sa States, bahala na. And for my upcoming projects, you’ll be seeing me in I Dare You with Iya Villania and Melai Cantiveros. It’s my first reality show, malapit na ipalabas ‘yan. Yes, may offers din sa akin na gumawa ng movie pero at the moment pinag-aaralan pa namin ng maigi. I am also working on a new album. Kami ni Gab (Valenciano) pati yung banda ko, separately gumagawa kami ng bagong songs. Tapos ngayon pa lang excited na rin ako sa concert ko sa Music Museum on July 1. So far ‘yan ang line-up and sana magtuloy-tuloy lang ang pagpasok ng blessings this year.”
