Pinoy Icons: Redford White

Better late than never.

This was supposed to be released yesterday, the fortieth day of Redford White's death. I cannot let his memory fade without paying tribute to a great comedian.

Redford White doesn't really belong to the slapstick-sidekick type of actors. At least I don't remember him being slapped around the way Panchito slaps Babalu around. He's more of a lead actor. Just check out the screen name. It's classier than the average Filipino sidekick.

Anyway, I don't really have a lot to say about Redford White. My clearest memories of him are from the TV show Buddy en Sol. They used to do knock-knock jokes at the end of each episode, before going to bed. That's probably where I got my knock-knock knack, but I wouldn't really bet on it. And I highly doubt that I would've still watched that show if it were just Eric Quizon in it. I think Redford White was like eighty percent of the reason I watched that show.

And finally, I've always wondered whether Redford White has Caucasian blood, or is an albino. Not that it would affect my perception of him. I just want to know. But none of that matters now, as he is already in a place where skin color does not matter.
