The “24/7” star also earned the approval of “The Sandman” creator Neil Gaiman himself who described her as “amazing.”

Gaiman has previously tweeted about his admiration for Philippine folklore and Filipino writers.

Faberes had previously worked with the acclaimed English author and played Pollution, one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, in the Amazon series “Good Omens”.
