In show business, there's no shortage of teen heartthrobs with that easy pretty boy charm. Rising star Grae Fernandez, however, may just be on a league of his own as he exudes a more elusive vibe that could effortlessly disarm anyone with just a passing gaze.
We've previously seen Grae nab a few supporting roles in film and TV such as the love interest of Andrea Brillantes' Lia in the KathNiel series Pangako Sa 'Yo. But now, it's the 17-year-old charmer's turn in the spotlight as he stars in the lead cast of Spirits Reawaken, iWant's reboot of the 2004 fantasy series Spirits top-billed by then-rising actors Rayver Cruz and Maja Salvador. Grae takes on the character of Red, a Stateside-raised kid who finds himself leading a pack of high-schoolers with supernatural abilities and a mission to defeat alien forces.

With an action-packed role complete with a love triangle, this breakout project could catapult Grae to a shining path as today's biggest teen stars. Add his piercing yet refreshing visuals to the equation, and you've got a stellar leading man in the making.
For now, we're keeping him under close watch as he proves our theories right starting with his solo digital feature on Chalk.ph. See more exclusive photos from #ChalkLovesGrae in our gallery, and you'll know exactly what we're talking about!
Spirits Reawaken is now available for streaming on iWant.
