Snooky Serna (born Milagros Ocampo Serna on April 4, 1966) is a Filipina film and television actress. Being the daughter of actors Von Serna and Mila Ocampo, she started acting early in life via her 1970 landmark debut Wanted: Perfect Mother, where she immediately captured the hearts of Filipino audience as a cute, sweet and smart-talking four-year old. That same year she earned her first acting nomination from FAMAS Awards as Best Child Performer for the film My Little Angel.

Trained by acclaimed director and National Artist, Lino Brocka, Snooky showed promise as dramatic actress and later proved to be a fine one. In 1972, she won her first FAMAS Award as Best Child Actress for the film 'Sana Mahalin Mo Ako'.

Beautiful and fair, in her teens, she was launched as one of the original Regal Babies (promotional term coined for group of teen movie stars under contract with Filipino film production giant Regal Films) and groomed as a leading actress in various loveteam-inspired flicks with then heartthrobs Gabby Concepcion and Albert Martinez. She also starred in more daring films like Strangers in Paradise, Experience, Bata Pa Si Sabel, and Teenage Marriage.

Often pitted against then-rival Maricel Soriano, she made numerous blockbuster movies with her in the 80's like Underage, Schoolgirls, Story of Three Loves and Anak ni Waray vs. Anak ni Biday, among others. She also had her share of TV shows including the weekly musical variety 'Always Snooky' and weekly drama feature on 'Regal Drama Presents: Snooky' in ABS-CBN Channle 2.

As a mature actress, she tackled roles which earned acting nominations from various award giving bodies. She was brilliant in Kapag Napagod Ang Puso with Christopher de Leon and Inagaw Mo Ang Lahat Sa Akin (Harvest Home - official Philippine entry to the 1995 Oscars) but unfortunately was snubbed during awards night. Her other major films include Aabot Hanggang Sukdulan, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, Hahamakin ang Lahat with Vilma Santos, the fantasy films Blusang Itim, Rosa Mistica, and Madonna: Ang Babaing Ahas. It was with Koronang Itim, that she finally won Best Lead Actress trophy. She has starred in seventy-seven (77) films from 1970 to 2004.

Riddled by both personal problems and issues with her film studio, including her bout with anorexia nervosa, Snooky was prodded to concentrate on family and motherhood in the late 90's. Upon her comeback, her works mostly concentrated on TV. Initially, she had a short stint as a newscaster and as host for IBC-13's magazine show 'Travel and Trade'. More recently, she's been in various top-rating soap operas in rival stations GMA Network and ABS-CBN, notably Marina, Captain Barbell and Habang Kapiling Ka where she again was awarded a best actress trophy for TV drama performance from PMPC in 2003. Her recent films include Anak Ka Ng Tatay Mo, Captain Barbell and the still unreleased Bituin, Buwan at Araw with Nora Aunor.

She was married to actor/model Ricardo Cepeda for over 12 years, but fell out of marriage which was annulled in January 2006. They have two daughters, Sam and Saatchi.

She married on a civil rites to a certain Niño, many years younger to her. But after months of being together, she officially announced that they have separated due to some marital problems. She again became active with TV guesting and wanted to prove that she is now professional with regards with her working attitude.
