Tom Rodriguez Torn Between Carla Abellana And Rhian Ramos

AFTER HIS guest role as Katrina Halili’s husband in “Nino”, Tom Rodriguez is now back playing a regular role in a primetime soap, “My Destiny”. If he figured in a love triangle with Dennis Trillo and Carla Abellana, this time, he’ll be the guy who comes between sisters Carla Abellana and Rhian Ramos in “My Destiny”. He meets Carla first and falls for her, but Carla backs out to give way to Rhian, who also loves Tom and is suffering from leukemia.

Tom is so happy with his career right now. His “TomDen” album with Dennis is now certified platinum. “Yung naka- gold ito was enough of a shock for me. But platinum, grabe! Dennis and I are so thankful to the fans of our TomDen love team even if everyone knows we’re both straight.”

He is also in two new movies. He has just finished the comedy “Beauty in a Bottle” with Angelica Panganiban and Angeline Quinto for Atty. Joji Alonzo’s Quantum Films and he’ll soon start the film version of “Larawan, The Musical” as the male lead Tony Javier to Rachel Alejandro and Joanna Ampil’s Paula and Candida. “’Larawan’ is a milestone for me kasi puro magagaling ang makakasama ko. I was asking myself when I was with them: ‘Am I really here?’ I wanted to slap myself dahil hindi I can’t believe nakuha ko to be part of this prestige project.”

So how is it being reunited with Carla in “My Destiny” that starts airing on Monday to replace ‘Kambal Sirena’?

“It’s always a pleasure to work with her kasi we’re so comfortable with each other na and that makes things easier. Napakagaling niya at lahat ng kasama ko rito sa ‘My Destiny’. I’m also reunited here with Ms. Kuh Ledesma playing my mom again. Siya rin ang mom ko in ‘My Husband’s Lover’, but this time, iba ang dad ko, si Dennis Roldan na.”

Tom is also happy to be chosen to sing “Langit Umaawit” an entry to PhilPop 2014. “Ang ganda ng song, the lyrics, the melody and I feel so lucky akong napili to interpret this.”
