A Filipina actress thanked Filipinos for watching the Netflix series "The Sandman", where she played a female CEO in the dark adaptation of the DC Comics series.

London-based Lourdes Faberes played Kate Fletcher, who went to the diner with her husband Garry to celebrate their fifth anniversary in episode 5 "24/7". Here, John Dee, portrayed by David Thewlis, explored the power of the magic ruby stolen from the titular Sandman.

"I would love to work with some of the amazing Filipino directors. I don’t know if they know my work because I’ve been so many years in the UK but hopefully there’s a way that can happen. There are some beautiful films coming from the Philippines," she told UniversalCinema Magazine.
