TOM Rodriguez opens a new educational channel online where he aims to impart lots of information about a variety of subjects to today’s young people. “I will post enlightening but entertaining videos about history, science, mathematics and other subjects that will broaden their horizons and cultivate their minds,” says Tom who’s really one of our smartest actors today. “The internet is flooded so many useless videos that don’t really help shape the minds of our youth to be more productive. So I want to provide them with alternative content na makakatulong para mas tumalas at lumawak ang pag-iisip nila.”
Well, we commend Tom for this project and I hope he succeeds because the internet is really flooded now with so much “kababawan” and nonsense shows and videos.
Meantime, the followers of his hit GMA primetime show, “Love of My Life”, are worried because his character, Stefano, might die any time soon due to his terminal illness. There are many fans requesting GMA in social media not to kill him yet and to extend his role in the show. They love the show as it’s full of realistic family drama and if Stefano would make an exit, they would all feel very, very sad.
“Nagpapasalamat talaga ako sa lahat ng sumusubaybay sa ‘Love of My Life’,” says Tom. “Talagang involved sila sa mga nangyayari gabi-gabi at nagre-react sila kaya naman laging mataas ang ratings namin. I wish ma-extend pa talaga ang life ni Stefano, but when I accepted the show, alam ko namang special participation lang talaga ang role ko roon. But with such request from the fans na huwag munang mamatay si Stefano, it will all depend sa creative team ng show kung iga-grant nila ang request na ito ng viewers namin.”
The story has really become more absorbing now that Tom’s first girlfriend, Rhian Ramos as Kelly has entered the picture with their love son, and the rivalry between her and Tom’s legal wife, Carla Abellana, has become even more fierce and impassioned. This makes Tom as Stefano more stressed to worsen his illness. Will GMA give in to the show’s fans and make Tom’s role a bit longer? Let’s wait and see. Incidentally, starting tonight, GMA has switched the time slots of the two shows before “Love of My Life”. “Descendants of the Sun” will now be shown right after “24 Oras”, to be followed by “Anak ni Waray vs. Anak ni Biday”.
