Rafael Rosell Is Not Yet Ready For Gay RolesRafael Rosell that this is not the time yet for him to kiss another man in a television show or a movie.
"For now, hindi siguro."
He asked PEP.PH if they want the "showbiz answer," which is "If it’s artistically done, if it has meaning, [yes]."
But he is not closing his doors. He said since Temptation of Wife just ended, it might not be a good time to jump in a character role just yet.
He is still enjoying his leading man status.
"We can… puwede pa itong i-stretch, puwede pang i-enhance yung side ng career na ito, di ba?"
“Hindi ko naman puwedeng tanggapin kung ang basehan lang ay isang eksena, mahirap tanggapin ang isang project para sa ganun."
As much as Rosell would have wanted to portray character roles, he said it would be best for now if he can stick with his leading man roles.
He played Nigel in Temptation of Wife alongside Marian Rivera as Angeline.
“Pero I think iyon ang gusto ni Popoy [Caritativo, Rafael's manager] at agree din naman ako dun na, yeah, tara... let’s try the leading man [roles], not muna yung mga character-character."
But Rosell clarified he is ready to tackle any roles given to him.
He said he was surprised with how his career blossomed again when he transferred to GMA-7. Rosell was just looking for a change in environment when he decided to change networks.
"Everything that came to me after I moved, super-surprise talaga."
Rosell also said he will miss Rivera's "pure honesty."
For now, he couldn't tell what future projects he will have with GMA.
