Asian HeatWave: Rafael Rosell IV

Rafael Rossel IV is half-Filipino, half-Norwegian. His smiling face and sculpted body was initially be seen in ” Bikini Open,” a sex comedy tarring Diana Zubiri.

“I arrived in 2001 and spoke no Tagalog. I’m proud to say I speak it fluently in my upcoming movie,” says Rafael.

“My first big break was a Close-Up toothpaste commercial,” he recalled. “Then I joined ABS-CBN’s Star Circle Batch 9 with Michelle Bayle and Luis Alandy. My first movie was ’Kung Ikaw ay Isang Panaginip’ with Jolina Magdangal for Star Cinema.”

He is the eldest in a brood of three, all boys. His family lives in Abu Dhabi but visits Rafael often in his rented studio near the ABS-CBN compound. He says they are all very supportive of his career.

“My best experience in acting was the teleserye ‘Marina,’ where I played the mortal boyfriend of Gretchen Baretto. I came in on Week 8, and I initially felt like an outsider,” he recounts.

“My father taught us to follow our dreams. I guess I am living that dream right now, ” says Rafael. What would he like to do next? “I would love to host a beauty pageant and have a talk show,” he says.








To stay in shape, and because he loves sisig and adobo, Rafael says he has to work out four times a week.

Outside of show biz, he manages a jewelry line called Glisk. He likes being in business. “Math was my favorite subject in college,” he explains. “I love numbers.”







Presently, Rafael in part of the newest fantasy/epic series of ABS CBN, "Rounin." Definitely, Rafael Rosell is one of the hottest figure in the Philippine you must not miss.
