Jericho Rosales attended New Era University[1] for his secondary education and was later discovered on the television program Eat Bulaga! Mr. Pogi 1996.


Rosales became a household name when he was paired with actress Angelika dela Cruz in the primetime drama series Esperanza and in the teen horror flick Oka Tokat. His breakout role came when he landed the lead in Pangako Sa 'Yo alongside actress Kristine Hermosa. The success of his team up with Hermosa led to two blockbuster films; Forevermore and Ngayong Nandito Ka.

After the successful run of their first primetime series together, they headlined another primetime television series Sana'y Wala Nang Wakas which reunited him with Kristine Hermosa and former "The Hunks" mate Diether Ocampo. After the success of Sana'y Wala nang Wakas, he starred in the epic fantasy series Carlo J. Caparas' Ang Panday with Heart Evangelista, Victor Neri and Derek Ramsay.

He also played a starring role in Pangarap Na Bituin with Sarah Geronimo, Maja Salvador and Rica Peralejo and made a guest appearance in the television series I Love Betty La Fea. He was paired again with Kristine Hermosa in the legal drama Dahil May Isang Ikaw with Gabby Concepcion, Chinchin Gutierrez, Karylle and Lorna Tolentino. He also starred in other successful TV series such as Green Rose with Anne Curtis and Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig with Piolo Pascual. Rosales signed a non-exclusive contract with Viva Entertainment in 2013, and his first movie to do with Viva Films is Bob Ong's ABNKKBSNPLAko? The Movie.

Animal Activism[edit]

During February 2014, Rosales became actively involved in a campaign to Free Mali, the lonely elephant who has been living in a small, concrete enclosure at the Manila Zoo for more that 35 years. The campaign is led by animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and works toward having Mali transferred to the Boon Lott's Sanctuary in Thailand where she will be given all of the care and natural surroundings that the Manila Zoo cannot provide her with.

Rosales showed his support by posing for a photograph holding up a sign that reads "JERICHO ROSALES WANTS MALI FREED". He stated that "All evidences tell us that Mali is lonely and badly in need of veterinary care ... I don't understand why Mali's transfer has not already happened. She deserves a life that is more than the confines of the Manila Zoo.[6]
