If you were a 90s kid, we're sure you remember Nickelodeon's popular show, Are You Afraid of the Dark? From 1994-1996, Garcia played Sam, one of the members of a group called "The Midnight Society" who would sit around a campfire and tell spooky stories. Sam's stories often centered on love and how it could survive even beyond death. They were amazing!
