Mark Anthony Fernandez‘s “Gwapings” days in showbiz were the highlight of his early showbiz career. Alongside co-stars Jomari Yllana, Jao Mapa and Eric Fructuoso, Mark made the ladies swoon. Since then, he has carried this image of being a handsome hunk, especially when he began to play the lead in a handful of action films. Despite already being in his 40s, the Kapuso actor is still, without question, one of the most attractive men in the history of Philippine TV. It seems like his son, Grae Fernandez, is following in his footsteps.
If you were one of the viewers of the now-defunct drama series “Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin,” you’d be hard-pressed not to remember this pretty boy. Grae is slowly making a name for himself not just for his looks but also for his impressive talent. With that said, it may not come as a surprise if Mark’s son soon becomes the next big thing in Pinoy showbiz.
When not busy with tapings, Grae spends his time playing basketball. Inspired by his idol, legendary NBA player LeBron James, 16-year-old Grae has grown to excel in the sport himself. Not convinced? He was tagged the rookie of the year and earned a spot in his team’s “mythical five,” leading his team to be crowned the basketball youth league champions.
To prepare for the rigors of basketball, Grae makes sure that his body can handle it by putting time in the gym.
But most of the time, Grae Fernandez is hard at work as a celebrity. Last year, he had his first ever meet-and-greet event as an ambassador for the popular local clothing brand, Bench Philippines.
He’s also one of Dra. Vicki Belo‘s #BeloBabys.
Grae was also featured on MEGA Man magazine‘s November 2017 issue.
Prior to this, he was also featured in StarStudio Magazine‘s January 2017 issue. At the time, the young star was just revealed as part of Star Magic‘s teen boy-group Gimme-5.
In 2016, Rudy Fernandez and Alma Moreno‘s handsome grandson was included in Yes Magazine‘s list of Most Beautiful Stars in their July issue.
By the way, you can also catch him along Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City via this billboard.
Apart from his acting and basketball career, Grae Fernandez is also a traveler! This one was taken in Disneyland in Hong Kong.
Europe? Nope. Mark’s son knows how to appreciate the beauty of our country by exploring our native locales! In this pic, he posed in front of Saint Thomas de Villanueva Church in Miagao, Iloilo.
Not just handsome and talented, Grae is also appreciative and very down-to-earth. While his parents are separated, it looks like they never fell flat in raising their son well.
Here, he and his loyal army of Graenation Princesses just had fun at an exclusive party.
Grae takes after his dad’s dapper looks.
This was his getup at the Star Magic Ball 2016. Sleek, right?
Even if he’s keeping it casual, Grae still knows how to make his outfits look fly!
To top it all off, Grae Fernandez is a loving son to his father, Mark. This proud son never hesitates to show his appreciation for his dad on Instagram. Case in point:
In fact, when the seasoned actor got arrested for marijuana possession back in 2016, Grae had his dad’s back.
“Mahal na mahal kita. Sobrang mahal kita. Sana mas magalingan mo pa sa mga gagawin mong mga project. I love you so much.”
What a sweet son! We’re all thrilled to see more of this young star!
