Rafael Rosell IV (born November 10, 1982) is a Filipino actor and model. Rosell is best known for playing Brandon Brazil on the ABS-CBN romance drama Midnight Phantom, Marco De Silva in Kristine, and as Mayor Edson Zaguirre in Dahil Sa Pag-ibig. A known talent of ABS-CBN for several years, Rosell is now under contract with GMA Network.
Rafael Quimpo Rosell IV was born in Stavanger, Norway on November 10, 1982 to Filipino parents, his dad Rafael Rosell III is a geologist from Cebu and his mom, a nurse from Bicol. He was raised in Norway, while his grandfather Rafael Rosell, Jr. and his great-grandfather Rafael Rosell, Sr. were both raised from Cebu. Rosell has two siblings and he is the eldest amongst them.
During a vacation with his family on 2000, his mom found out about the auditions at ABS-CBN while surfing through web. Rosell auditioned and got a TV Commercial job for Close Up Toothpaste and signed a contract with Star Magic later that year.
In 2002, he was introduced by Aimee Quimpo as one of the leading men of Jolina Magdangal, in Star Cinema's Kung Ikaw Ay Isang Panaginip. Rosell's big break came in 2004 when he was paired with Claudine Barretto on the ABS-CBN fantaserye Marina. In 2006, he was launched as a member of the all-male group Coverboys with Zanjoe Marudo, Jon Avila, Victor Basa and Jake Cuenca.
Rosell started getting recognition in 2010 when he played Brandon Brazil in the ABS-CBN afternoon drama Midnight Phantom opposite her good and close friend Denise Laurel. After the success of Midnight Phantom and his team-up with Laurel, ABS-CBN paired them up again in Kristine. The team-up came to an abrupt end when Laurel took a one-year hiatus due to pregnancy, leaving Rosell to be paired up with Jodi Sta. Maria in 100 Days to Heaven. In 2012, Rosell was reunited with Laurel in another ABS-CBN drama Dahil Sa Pag-ibig.
Endorsements and other ventures
Rosell is currently endorsing Bench, Tide Detergent and Nestea Iced Tea. He is consistently featured in Cosmopolitan Philippines' Hottest Bachelor list and was recently named as one of the 15 Hottest Hunks Ever.
In 2009, Rosell confirmed that he and girlfriend Malaya Lewandowski have broken up after being together for three years. At a press conference, Rosell said that he was shocked by his former girlfriend's decision to end their long relationship. He admitted that Lewandowski left him for another guy.
A known advocate for the environment, Rosell took part in the shore clean-up activity in Boracay on April 2012 and stated that every effort—great and small—is needed to save Mother Nature.
