Rosanna Roces is one of the celebrities mourning the death of acclaimed playwright and director Floy Quintos on Saturday, saying she is heartbroken by his passing.

As one of the hosts of the popular celebrity talk shows “Startalk” on GMA, together with Butch Francisco and Lolit Solis, Roces had the chance to work closely with Quintos, who directed from the late 1990s to 2004. The actress said she felt lucky to get to know the late director in more personal terms because of that show, and more so after even after the show folded up.


In an interview with Bandera, Roces said it was a rare day when she and Quintos would not talk, and they were even set to meet before his untimely death.


She said that in their last conversation, Quintos even thanked her for mentioning his name during her interview in Aiko Melendez’s vlog. At the same time, Roces expressed thanks to Quintos for being a true friend to her.

“I am heartbroken Floy Quintos… Salamat sa pitong mabubuting taon na nakasama kita sa ‘Startalk’ at sa labas nito. Sa mga concerts namin ni Ai Ai (de las Alas) sa Music Museum. Sa mga mahahabang usapan over coffee and meryenda. Salamat Floy..Mahal na Mahal kita,” she said on Facebook.

Quintos’ death on Saturday, April 27, due to a heart attack was announced by his niece Celina Quintos through a Facebook post.

According to his niece, the esteemed director died in a hospital emergency room from a heart attack Saturday morning, just over a week after his 63rd birthday.
