Labyu (Love you), Tito Bong! Thanks for signing my book!”

On the other hand, Dennis posed with Zhao, the director of the Academy Award-winning film Nomadland, in another post.

With them were On The Job: The Missing 8 producers Quark Henares and Stacey Bascon and director-producer Erik Matti.

On the other hand, Erivo told Dennis,

“You were brilliant. I hope to see you in many, many more villain roles. You were amazing.”
