Just recently, Jericho Rosales’ son Santino signed an exclusive contract with talent management company Viva Artists Agency. The 19-year-old immediately expressed that he is taking a different path from his father.
Santino shared that he does not share the same passion his father has with acting.
“I don’t have the passion for it and I was always taught growing up that for everything I do, I have to have a passion for it. I think I cannot give the best of my ability on that path,” he said in a report from Pilipino Star Ngayon.
He added that his lack of passion for acting is the reason why he does not feel inclined to join the showbiz industry.
“I don’t think that I’ll be inclined to do it simply because I enjoyed the path that I’m in now. I will not just take one step into something that I’m not really passionate about,” he explained.
Despite his young age, Santino is already managing a restaurant with his mother, the former model Kai Palomares. Aside from their business, he has been venturing into the world of modelling.
The rising heartthrob revealed that he wants to be one of the top models in the Philippines.
“I want to be one of the top models in the Philippines when the time comes. I grew up doing ramp so I learned to love it,” he said.
He explained that the environment in art and fashion is a beautiful culture to be in.
“What I love about fashion is that it’s living art and everyone around you, you tend to find inspiration from and when you’re exposed to this, it’s just a beautiful culture to be in. That’s why I feel in love with it and I continue to be passionate,” Santino explained.
Despite veering away from his father’s path, Santino affirmed that Jericho has always been supportive of his decisions.
“He always just tells me to make smart decisions and he supports me all the way. They always just tell me to be true to myself and the rest will follow, very short and concise but it’s very meaningful and I take this to heart everyday,” he said.
