Kapamilya actress Melissa Ricks has become extremely passionate for her challenging portrayal as Elisa after “Nasaan Ka Elisa?” continues to hook many Filipinos with its at-the-edge-of-your-seat offering every night.
“Nasaan Ka Elisa?”, now on its fifth week on air, still dominates primetime as it obtained a total of 24.4% in the ratings game against the competitor’s 20.6% last Monday, October 3.
The hit teleserye remains at the fourth place of Kantar’s list of most appreciated TV programs, alongside “100 Days To Heaven” (32.4%), “TV Patrol” (29.9%) and “My Binondo Girl” (27.6%).
Melissa Ricks shared that to be the Philippine counterpart of Elisa is one of the biggest breaks she had as an actress. She said she couldn’t ask for more. Another thing she’s very grateful for is having the chance to work with the country’s premier actors.
Amid all the controversies labeling her as a late-bloomer compared to her celebrity friends in her girl group ChiuRiGoGoBaSchu, Melissa believes that her breaks in show business always come at the right time-when she’s prepared to take the challenges that come with it.
“I’m ready to shock yet enthrall everyone. I’m ready to use the acting skills I’ve learned in the course of over eight years I’m in this business. I will give everything I’ve got for ‘Nasaan Ka Elisa?’,” Melissa Ricks said.
Besides her Primetime TV stint, Melissa Ricks is currently busy in her other projects. She’s also a mainstay in “ASAP Rocks,” airing every Sunday, where she confirms her well-roundedness as a tv personality.
For avid viewers of “Nasaan Ka Elisa?,” who are in their search for the missing Elisa, Melissa says “follow your heart” and you’ll surely find me.” So, where is Elisa?
