JERICHO Rosales says “Halik” is his most successful show after “Pangako Sa’Yo” which he did 20 years ago. “Napakalakas talaga ng impact nito sa viewers kasi everywhere I go, they call me as Lino, my name in the show,” he says. “But after this, ayoko ng gumawa ng teleserye. To begin with, this is a tough act to follow. Also, I want to challenge myself to do something new kasi nag-iba na rin naman ang panahon ngayon. I’ve been doing soaps on TV for 23 years now, so I don’t wanna do soaps anymore. It doesn’t mean titigil ako sa pag-arte kasi passion ko yan. But I’m now more open to do other projects, lalo na ngayon, uso na ang digital. We don’t know where things would be going, and we should be open to exploring more options, more venues. I’m inspired and excited to do new things and RSB (Ruel S. Bayani) has offered me to do shows with different concepts that I can produce, write or direct. I want to challenge myself to do something new. So, we’ll see.”
