In his acceptance speech, Lee mentioned the Aswang episode of “Grimm,” relating how it is the first Filipino-themed story that was shown on American TV.
Lee’s “Grimm” co-stars have nothing but good words for him.
“I think he’s a phenomenal actor and a phenomenal person,” Claire Coffee said.
Russell Hornsby added, “Such a consummate professional, such a gentleman, and such a humanitarian. A man with a big heart.”
Other co-stars said that the “Aswang” story is one of their favorites.
“I thought that was one of our finest episodes largely because of Reggie Lee,” said David Giuntoli.
“To use a Filipino tale that has real meaning I think it speaks to the universality of the show,” Silas Weir Mitchell said.
