Jennylyn Mercado Getting Raves For Her Superb Portrayal Of 'Rhodora X'

JENNYLYN MERCADO is grinning from ear to ear these days. And why not? According to AGB Nielsen NUTAM ratings, her “Rhodora X” is now the number one show in its slot. Angel Locsin might have won her ex-BF Luis Manzano’s heart but Jen has won the nod of the viewers for her crackerjack portrayal of the schizophrenic Rhodora/Roxanne. The feedback from netizens praising her performance is overwhelmingly positive and Jen wants to thank all of them for their lavish praises. Many viewers are predicting she might eventually win an award for her acting.

The vindictive Roxanne is getting more and more evil in her thirst for revenge against the people she thinks stole her happy childhood away from her after she was kidnapped. Her good side, Rhodora, tries to fight her but Roxanne easily overpowers the meek Rhodora. She confronts sister Yasmien Kurdi as Angela and puts an X mark on her face, telling Angela that she herself planned everything to frame up Angela and put her in jail for a crime she didn’t commit.

Angela fights back when Roxanne tries to stab her and manages to get the knife away from Roxanne. But their parents (Gardo Versoza and Glydel Mercado) arrive and side with Roxanne who transforms into the pitiful Rhodora. The cops appear and Angela tries to escape from them by jumping off a cliff. The police think she’s dead and Roxanne rejoices, but Mark Anthony Fernandez has rescued Angela and will eventually help her to get back at Roxanne.
