Rufa Mae Quinto
- May 28, 1978 (age 44)
Rufa Mae Quinto (often misspelled Ruffa Mae Quinto) (born May 28, 1978) is a Filipino actress, comedienne, and television host.
Quinto has won four PMPC Star Awards and is one of the most bankable stars in the industry with top grosser films like Apat-Dapat, Dapat-Apat, Pasukob, Desperadas, Manay Po 2, I.T.A.L.Y. & Desperadas 2. Quinto is known for her funny expressions such as "Ok, fine", "`Todo Na 'To!", "Pasensiya Na", "Para sa Bayan", "Move on", "GO GO GO!!!" and "To the highest level!!". Although Quinto is a talent of GMA Network, she is one of the few actresses managed by Boy Abunda, a personality from the rival TV station ABS-CBN.
Quinto started her showbiz career after landing a spot in That's Entertainment (1996). Her biggest break was Gloria, Gloria Labandera (1997). Quinto is widely known for playing the character "Booba" and "Boobita Rose" in both hit movies, a role for which Quinto inspired an international catchphrase in the Philippine vernacular to refer to a lack of English fluency as having a "nose bleed".
