Rak of Aegis actor Myke Salomon is most excited about his TV debut. He is now a part of the soap My Korean Jagiya.
“This is a good new thing for me, okay naman sa akin mag-TV, ayoko lang mapuyat.”
He delineates the role of the driver of the lead actor Alexander Lee and David Kim, who is delineating the role of the brother of Alexander’s character.
“Well, dati maraming offers through Noel Ferrer pero sa schedule talaga siya, e,” he averred. “Parang, hindi ko mabitawan kaagad ang theater ‘cause I’m doing musical direction, and acting for theater.”
Theater raw ang first love ni Myke, but he accepted GMA’s offer basically because it’s interesting.
At thirty-three, naisip raw niyang it’s high time to try new things provided hindi siya mapupuyat.
It’s a good thing that they have a director that’s basically a fast worker like Mark Reyes.
Ang ganda raw ng taping sched nila. Halos walang nasasayang na oras. Tuluy-tuloy lang.
Myke is single but his relationship before with bombshell Ehra Madrigal (who is now happily married with a Chinese national and seems to be ecstatically happy!) was largely talked about.
Truth to tell, many had expected that they would end up at the altar.
Imagine, inabot ng 11 years ang relationship before they parted ways last 2014.
Bakit hindi pa siya nag-aasawa?
“Work muna, nandoon naman ako, pero marami akong gustong gawin sa buhay,” he cooed. “I have done my ultimate goal to make a really nice show, Rak Of Aegis!
“As a musician, and an actor, nagawa ko siya, nagawa ko siyang i-perform for around 300 performances.
“Naka-three hundred plus, nagawa namin iyon, milestone siya sa Philippine theater.
“Basta as an artist I just want to keep on creating, affecting people.
“Magra-run ulit kami next year, feeling ko eve-ry year na ‘yun… ang dami naming napasayang tao.”
Sumali rin si Myke sa Mossimo Bikini Summit wayback in 2004 where he won as first runner-up with the foreigner Marco Grazzini bagging the title. Classic ang pagrampa niya wearing a skimpy trunks or underwear.
Ayaw na ba niyang magpa-sexy?
“Hindi naman, depende sa budget yan,” he said with a banter. “Hindi, depende kung kaila-ngan, kung hindi naman kailangan.
And with that, ito po ang Kuya Pete ninyo na nagsasabing, Christopher, my son, I love you very, very much, my love for you goes beyond eternity.
Adios. Mabalos. I always need you, Nhong!
