Despite his stature as an actor and accomplishments, Jericho Rosales still gushes about certain things—like his upcoming film Siargao.
Jericho, during an exclusive interview with PUSH at his contract renewal with restaurant chain Kuya J, reveled in the idea that he now gets to endorse and really embark on projects that he really likes.
Asia’s Drama King is set to release his second romance-centered film this year titled Siargao under the direction of Paul Soriano. Jericho stars alongside Erich Gonzales and Jasmine Curtis in the said film.
“It’s a dream project. It’s about surfing, it’s about the music, it’s about the island,” he started.
The premier actor also underscored the fact that they shot the film on one of his favorite islands in the country is also a plus factor.
“And I got to be with my friends on the set, I got to work with them. And I got to see my old friends,” Jericho added.
Aside from filming in Siargao, Jericho also raved about that fact that he didn’t feel like he was really working when he did the film.
“Parang I was busy in Siargao pero parang I didn’t feel it kasi laging green lang ang nakikita ko and there’s always water,” he said. “I get to surf every morning at 5 to 6 a.m. before going to work and kapag may break time ako, I get to surf again.”
Strange as it may sound, Jericho revealed that one of his wildest dreams was to have a job that would allow him to surf in between work.
“So parang nasa tabi ka ng dagat kapag morning tapos work ka kapag oras na ng work. Kapag break time, siesta or surfing then go back to work and at night rest and sleep early. It’s almost impossible sa trabaho namin,” he explained.
After staying on the island for almost a month, Jericho related that they have finished all their necessary shoots in Siargao. What’s only left, according to him, was a one-day shoot for Erich.
To those who are curious as to whether the film would be shown as an independent or mainstream film, Jericho said, “Well it doesn’t matter anymore. It’s a film.”
Since his wife Kim Jones was spotted in one of the photos in the past, will she be appearing in their film?
“Wala. Niloloko ko lang siya na ‘Pwede ka dito!’” he said.
“No, no. She just visited. Kasi ‘yun ang style namin eh kasi we’re busy. So we need to spend time together. ‘Yun ang isang paraan namin. After this we’re taking a break,” Jericho continued.
Although they have yet to have a playdate, Jericho is thrilled to let the people embrace the relaxing vibe that their film is set to bring to the cinemas.
