Jennifer Adriano-Molina (born May 25, 1972),[1] better known by her stage names Rosanna Roces and Osang, is a Filipina actress, known in the early 1990s as one of the hottest actresses. She was a contract star of Seiko films from 1994 to 1996, introduced initially as "Ana Maceda". After her years with Seiko, she starred in the critically acclaimed film Ligaya Ang Itawag Mo Sa Akin (Call Me Joy) by Reyna Films, which paved the way for her transition to "serious acting".[citation needed]

In addition to doing films, Rosanna Roces ventured into hosting by serving as a replacement for Dawn Zulueta on GMA 7's Startalk. Roces hosted the show until 2004, after a misunderstanding between her and her manager-friend Lolit Solis. Leaving GMA 7 for ABS CBN, Rosanna Roces was replaced by Lorna Tolentino in the reformatting of Startalk. Roces also did acting on TV, appearing in shows such as 1 for 3 with Vic Sotto and Charlene Gonzales from 1997 to 2002 and Daboy en Da Girl with Rudy Fernandez from 2002 to 2003.

She was also part of ABS-CBN's Sineserye Presents: Natutulog Ba Ang Diyos? as Patria and on the soap opera Ysabella (as Rosario), and Maging Sino Ka Man: Ang Pagbabalik as Veronica Rubio. She also recently appeared once on the finale episode of Tayong Dalawa on September 25, 2009 on ABS-CBN 2.[citation needed]

Her latest appearance is her portrayal in TV5 Mini Series Sa Ngalan ng Ina in 2011 with Nora Aunor.

A still photo of Rosanna, topless, was apparently shown by accident during a broadcast in the Philippines of Teletubbies (1997).[2] During the investigation after incidents involving host Rosanna Roces, alleged commercial overloading and interfering when news anchor Mike Enriquez aired his complaints over his radio program, Saksi sa Dobol B, against Lopez-owned cable firm SkyCable's distortion of GMA's signal on its system, and a lost videotape containing evidence that the cable firm had violated the rule on soliciting ads for cable TV.
