Each of the ghosts will have a chance to shine in future episodes. Producer Wiseman said: “The future Thor has decided he needs therapy for some long-standing issues. It’s called ‘Thorapy’.
Rose McIver, of iZombie glory, enjoys being the animated character who interacts with the whole cast. McIver said, “A lot of people ask me what my favorite ghost is. And I’m always like ‘I can’t do this.’ It’s like choosing who your favorite child is.
Around the holidays, the show asked its Phantom fans choose their favorite episodes for a catch-up “Ghostmas” campaign that aired. CBS was overwhelmed with the response for the mini-marathon on the network.
One of the favorite fans was Danielle Pinnock as the singer of Prohibition Jazz Alberta, and her co-star Sheila Carrasco (Hippie Flower) said she loved “Alberta’s Fan” even though she was not in the episode. . “Seeing Danielle doing her thing with Rebecca and Devan and our fellow cast members is so amazing. It was such a well-written and well-written story. It was so cool to be able to watch him as just everyone’s fan. these incredible actors.
Brandon Scott Jones, as Revolutionary Soldier Isaac, confessed: “At the end of ‘Alberta’s Fan’ where she goes, ‘Because I’m Famous’ lives in my head for free and will remain so long after I die. I will be buried with this looping in my coffin.
Rebecca Wisocky (Victorian Hetty) said, “The flashback we’re all dying to see was Alberta singing in this club at the time. It is our secret wish of the actors.
What does Danielle Pinnock like about her character Alberta? Pinnock said, “This role is the dream of a lifetime. Like all of us, I was in the middle of a global pandemic, in my pajamas watching a ton of Selling Sunset, and this audition / screen test took place on Zoom. When I was chosen, it was the greatest moment of my life. I’ve been in this industry for a very long time, I get paid in pizza, I do a ton of acting. So to be back in the network with my CBS family, I did Young Sheldon For four years. So I got the impression that it was very kismet.
Pinnock added, “Alberta is such a bad ass. Maybe a criminal. A very delicious diva, from an extremely fabulous time. But also, you know, there was racism, as she says so lightly in her episode. I’m not a born singer, so what I wanted to understand with this character is that I had to take singing lessons for this role. I wanted to learn the dances of the time to really immerse myself in the character. I wanted to do him justice. Because I think in particular in the episode ‘Alberta’s Fan’, there are so many artists that we just don’t know. You know, they’re really hidden figures, a lot of black artists from those times. And I think this episode is so important, because it highlights these people, and Alberta is one of those people.
She now sees a kaleidoscope of art with the discovery of Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey. “We just saw movies about them that people had no idea about. I’m very, very, very grateful to play her (Alberta), I think she’s so fabulous. I am very grateful to be in this set. And this episode was so important to me. It just blew me away.
Port said: “There is a lot of fun in store for Ghosts. ” To agree.
