MANILA, Philippines – Mike Ross came in a suit and was definitely engaging.

On February 27, 11am at the Marriott Hotel in Pasay City, Patrick J. Adams aka Mike Ross of “Suits” met the fans of his character and the series aired on JackTV.

Wearing a crisp navy blue suit, a mala around his left wrist, and dark beige creepers, the charming Canadian gamely and warmly answered questions from the Entertainment press.

What probably came as the biggest surprise to everyone in the room was that this Manila visit is not Adams’s first time in the Philippines. He was in the country when he was 5 years old, in “an island called Cebu.” His father was a journalist and was in the Philippines then.

Without disclosing where he and girlfriend Troian Bellisario (who’s also in the country for “Pretty Little Liars” that airs on ETC) are headed next, Adams said that they are “heading off to explore and visit the beaches.”
