As Jennylyn Mercado’s psychodrama TV series Rhodora X airs its grand finale on Friday night, the 27-year-old actress feels both triumphant and grateful that she ably pulled off a very challenging role in the show’s four-month run. As a woman suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder, Jennylyn had to assume three different characters in Rhodora, Roxanne, and Rowena. “I will never forget the challenge of portraying all three roles in a single scene several times in the show. As an actress, I’m very grateful I had the chance to do something like this.” Her acting skills sharpened for sure by her most memorable project to date, Jennylyn hopes to use her new and bolder techniques for the camera in her next prime time series for GMA Network.
Rhodora X airs its final two episodes beginning tonight, after Kambal Sirena.
