Wow, as much as I do love some of the unique monikers I’ve read on here, Dennis Ricardo such a normal name that it’s almost refreshing in a way

Katie, Iswan, et al.- It says his part in the series was “recent” so maybe you just haven’t seen those episodes yet.🙂

At any rate, congrats to them!

He looks very different in that photo. In his IMDB entry he’s a bit more recognisable:

Anonymous – season 2 finished months ago and season 3 will be aired in the fall, so no, no chance people hadn’t seen those episodes yet.
