Rufa Mae Quinto spills the tea on her ‘Tols’ co-stars Kelvin Miranda, Shaun Salvador, Abdul Rahman

“Iba-iba sila pero pag pinagsama mo sila mukang tanga naman sila. Hindi, gago lang. Hindi kailangan ‘yun eh sa showbiz. Kaya they’re very silly.”– Rufa Mae Quinto.

On June 6, comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto shared behind the scene details about her Tols co-stars Kelvin Miranda, Shaun Salvador, and Abdul Rahman.

At the media conference for her upcoming sitcom, Tols, Quinto revealed that her co-stars are quite mischievous on set.



“Mayayaman sila ‘yun ang unang-una doon. Charot. Hindi, ang masasabi ko sa kanila, makukulit sila. Akala ko nga komedyante sila ‘yun pala hindi daw. Ano lang daw ‘yun, hiyang-hiya pa sila. So makulit lang talaga sila. Tapos nagkataon nga nalaman ko na ‘yung mga past nila, so nagkakaroon kami ng mga personal chikahan jokes. 

“Pero hindi namin ginagawa sa camera. ‘Yung off-cam. Kaya mas maganda kasi parang na kaming nagtra-trabaho pero parang masaya lang. 

“Mababait sila tsaka medyo magaling naman, magalang, tsaka may pinagaralan, tsaka fresh, professional din naman. Importante ang fresh ha kasi kapag katabi mo hindi mabango hindi na maganda ‘yun.”

She then described Miranda as the most mischievous out of the three.

“Pinakamakulit talaga diyan si ito si Kelvin. Salbahe din. Siya ‘yung pinaka-gago, talagang mahilig– hindi papatalo. Gusto niya lagi bubuhusan ng tubig, sasampalin si Shaun. 

“Itong si Kelvin hindi ko alam kung saan nanggaling, medyo jologs din siya. Di ba? Kasi, extra lang daw siya dati sabi niya, sabi ko, ‘Saan ka ba nanggaling?’ ‘Ah, extra lang po ako noon.”

As for Salvador, she revealed the young actor’s typical reaction to Miranda’s antics on set. 

“Tapos lagi naman si Shaun, ‘yun nga parang ‘I don’t need this’ ang reaction. Parang ‘yun nga, may kaya siguro, ewan ko. Parang ‘My God’ in short parang ganon reaction. 

“Si Shaun ganon, parang, ‘My God!’ Hindi niya sinasabi pero nakita ko na parang mahilig siyang huminga ng malalim. Ewan ko rin kung may pinagtataguan na babae. May nangungulit, o nahihirapan siya sitcom.”

As for Rahman, she noted that the young Kapuso would always seem sleepy while off-cam.

“Si Abdul naman walang paki, Diyos ko minsan natutulog ng nakaupo may kutsilyo. Sabi ko, ‘Hoy mamaya matusok ka ng ganyan.’ Ano naman siya, laging puyat. Ewan ko kung anong ginagawa laging napupuyat. 

“May tinetext, ang tinetext pa ‘yung jowa ni Shaun. Kaya talagang ibang klase, silly nga.”

Collectively, she characterized the three as silly.

“Iba-iba sila pero pag pinagsama mo sila mukang tanga naman sila. Hindi, gago lang. Hindi kailangan ‘yun eh sa showbiz. Kaya they’re very silly.”

Quinto, Miranda, Salvador, and Rahman star in the upcoming GTV sitcom directed by Monti Parungao. 

Joining them are Betong Sumaya, Arkin Del Rosario, Raymond Mabute, and Olivia Bihag.



Tols, under the collaboration of GMA Network and Merlion Events Production Inc., premieres on June 25 at 7 p.m. on GTV.
