One of Rufa Mae Quinto’s most iconic roles is the superheroine ‘Super B’, the alter-ego of an ordinary girl who got special strength and powers through a mysterious ring. Just like any other guardian of the world, Super B has her own kind of magical transformation as well.
The said comedy film was released in 2002 but footages of Super B’s costume change resurrected again after Liza Soberano’s controversial exit from the highly-awaited “Darna” project. Netizens react with the hilarious clip and notes that Super B can be at par with Darna in a lot of things. This made several social media users suggest of handing down the role to Rufa Mae instead.
Rufa Mae makes fun of such comments as she guested in Tonight with Boy Abunda. “If you are listening, Star Cinema, then choose me. From Super B, I’ll be Super D”, Rufa Mae jests as she pretends begging the film outfit to give her the project.
Tito Boy asks her to audition as the next Darna. Rufa Mae gamely twirls and cartwheels on the set as she showcases the talents that set her apart from any other actresses vying for the role. She jokes that it is her way of proving herself capable of doing high-risk stunts a la Darna.
But whether she becomes the next Darna or not, Rufa Mae is looking forward to making more shows in the Kapamilya network, saying she won’t be picky in terms of character portrayal.
