Jericho Rosales, pursigidong matupad ang international career

Jericho Rosales, pursigidong matupad ang international careerJERICHO ROSALES is enjoying an exciting showbiz career. He is back from Los Angeles where Alagwa, his indie movie about human trafficking, was screened at the Newport Beach Film Festival. He attended the film’s premiere and red carpet events at The Triangle Square Cinema in Costa Mesa, California. Ito ang ikalawang pagkakataon na um-attend si Echo sa nasabing filmfest. He first participated in 2011 with his movie Subject: I Love You.

Umani ng mga papuri si Echo because he was cited for Outstanding Acting Achievement at the filmfest together with Michael Shannon (for the movie The Iceman) and Onata Aprile (What Maisie Knew).

Kuwento niya sa The Buzz, “Ang galing lang ng nangyari sa trip na ito, kasi I met people who wanted to work with me, who expressed interest na magtrabaho kami. They actually gave me some scripts to look at and they wanted me to develop the scripts with them. I was like, Jericho Rosales, pursigidong matupad ang international careerang galing naman. Hanep naman itong trip na ito.”

Walang duda that Echo is one of the best young actors of his generation. Marami nang mga pinagdaanan sa buhay si Echo pero hanggang ngayon ay nananatili pa rin siyang nakatayo. Malaki ang ginampanang papel ng mga karanasang ito para kay Echo dahil ito ang kanyang pinanghuhugutan ng iba’t ibang emosyon bilang isang magaling na aktor.

Noon pa man ay pangarap na ni Echo na makapasok sa Hollywood kaya naman puspusan ngayon ang kanyang ginagawang pakikipag-ugnayan sa mga writers at producers sa US para tingnan ang posibilidad ng pagkakaroon niya ng isang international career.

“Well iyon ang idea. Iyon ang tinatrabaho ko ngayon kaya nag-extend ako sa trip namin. And I was able to meet writers, directors. It’s not easy kasi you have to be there. The best talaga is to tape your shows here and then fly for two months [to the US] and meet new people naman.” Dahil sa kanyang angking husay sa akting, sipag at determinasyon ay hindi malayong makamit niya ang minimithing pangarap.

Sa kabila ng kanyang promising international career, hindi naman nakakalimutan ni Echo ang local movie industry. “Of course, for the industry may pangarap ako. Hopefully, indie filmmakers like me don’t have to travel abroad to get noticed sa Pilipinas. I just pray na we don’t have to go out of the country to make movies na talagang magaganda.”

Echo is a good guy. I am happy for him. Let’s all hope and pray na maganda ang kahinatnan ng lahat para kay Echo.

Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!
