User @zaynaness also added, “I’m a psychology major… and I can really tell that Nash perfectly portrayed his character. He studied it well. It makes me proud!”

Like “The Gift,” “S.P.A.R.K.” also received loved from the fans of Andrea Brillantes and Grae Fernandez, whose last project was the Kapamilya series “Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin.” Directed by Carlo Po Artillaga, “S.P.A.R.K.” tells the story of Drei (Grae), a campus crush and trickster who gets into trouble after damaging the stalls of a pottery barn.
