Rufa Mae Quinto proved once again that she still has it when it comes to comedy!
In Sunday’s episode of Tonight with Boy Abunda, Rufa Mae was interviewed on the issue that many netizens are campaigning for her to get the role of “Darna”.
As we all know, this role is now vacant as Kapamilya star Liza Soberano has backed-down from the role because of an injury. Several names came-up as top-picks to be the next Darna. There were beauty queens like Pia Wurtzbach, Catriona Gray, Maxine Medina; actresses like Nadine Lustre, Maja Salvador, Julia Baretto, ans Yassi Pressman. Even Pop Star princess
Sarah Geronimo was being cheered for the role.
According to Rufa Mae, the clamor for her to be the next Darna came even before Wonder Woman was hitting the box office. She said that netizens referred back to her superhero character Super B, a film she did in 2002.
Host Boy Abunda straightforwardly asked Rufa Mae Quinto if there’s something that the actress wants to tell Star Cinema.
“Sinabi ko na” she said and shared the story on how she told Eric John Salut of Dreamscape that people are requesting for her.
Boy Abunda then encouraged Rufa Mae to do an online audition for the role, which the comedienne did not hesitate to do!
When asked what would set her apart from the other actresses being considered for the role, Rufa Mae proudly said that she can do cartwheeling.
“Tumatambling ako” she said.
