Cipriano Cermeño II, better known by his stage name Redford White (5 December 1955 – 25 July 2010), was a Filipino actor and comedian.
White first came to prominence in the late 1970s for his supporting role in the sitcom Iskul Bukol. He had a string of hits as the leading man in several 1980s comedies such as Bino and Klayd, Darakula and Hee Man: Master of None, his first major role. For several years, he starred in the TV sitcom Buddy en Sol with Eric Quizon. In the latter part of his career, White appeared in several films for Star Cinema such as Tar-San, Ala eh... Con Bisoy! Hale-hale-hoy!: Laging panalo ang mga unggoy, and Haba-baba-doo! Puti-puti-poo! paired with various comedians in the likes of Babalu, Bonel Balingit, Carding Castro and Leo Martinez. His last film and television appearances were in Iskul Bukol 20 Years After and Palos on ABS-CBN, respectively, both in 2008.
White was reportedly born with albinism, which gave rise to his screen name. He was married to Elena Cermeño and they had a daughter, Jeruie. His closest friends were his fellow Buddy En Solco-star Eric Quizon, Vic Sotto who worked with him in the sitcom Daddy Di Do Du, singer-songwriter Jim Paredes and comedians Gabe Mercado and Leo Martinez.
On July 25, 2010, at 6:47 a.m., White died from lung cancer and a brain tumor at the age of 54. His wake took place at what had been his residence in the Maligaya Subdivision, Fairview, Quezon City.
