José Ezekiel Misa Madrid (born in Zamboanga City, Philippines), better known for his stage name Ruru Madrid, is a Filipino teen actor who rose to fame in Protégé: The Battle For The Big Artista Break. In 2016, Madrid landed the role of Ybarro/Rama Ybrahim in the television remake of GMA Network's Encantadia.
Ruru's high school Alma mater is the National Christian Life College in Marikina City. He had studied there before he rose to his fame. He was a 2nd year high school student there when he joined Protégé. The young actor is a member of Christian church, Iglesia Ni Cristo.
The Encantadia Star and one-half of the GabRu Love Team credits his Soaring Success to the professionalism he learned from one of his acting mentors.
"Kuya Germs taught me about professionalism. Just because magaling ka umarte or gwapo ka doesn't mean sisikat ka or maaabot mo ang pangarap mo. Importante ang pagiging professional. Basta marunong ka makisama, Lagi ka on time, ginagawa mo ang best sa mga eksena mo, magiging domino effect sya sa career mo."-Ruru
