A few months ago I had the chance to sit down with the cast of Netflix’s ‘The Umbrella Academy’ to talk about season 2! You can find all the interviews below and a cool behind-the-scenes video on how I conduct interviews from my home!
Robert Sheehan & Justin H. Min
During my interview with Sheehan and Min, the two spoke about how much fun they have on set together, Sheehan spoke about his initial reaction to Klaus becoming a cult lead, and Min talked about Ben getting a bigger role this season.
Aidan Gallagher and David Castaneda
During our chat, the two spoke about returning for season 2 and being more familiar with their characters and what it was like working with the newest cast member, Ritu Arya (who plays Lila in the series). We also spoke about some spoilers, but that part of the conversation will run after the series drops!
Tom Hopper, Ellen Page, and Emmy Raver-Lampma
Featured in this interview are Tom Hopper, Ellen Page, and Emmy Raver-Lampman who play Luther, Vanya, and Allison Hargreeves, respectively, in the series. During our chat, Hopper spoke about what it was like returning for the second season and how he was able to reconnect with the character. Page spoke about the new version of Vanya that we meet this season and she teases her relationship with another character. Most importantly, Raver-Lampman spoke about her character’s story arc and how it tied to the Civil Rights Movement and just how timely and raw that is with what’s going on in today’s society.
Showrunner Steve Blackman
I had the chance to sit down with the cast of the show and showrunner Steve Blackman to talk about season 2. During our conversation, he spoke about adapting Gerard Way’s ‘The Umbrella Academy: Dallas’ graphic novel and what he did differently from the original story. We also talked about the newest character of the show, Lila (Ritu Arya), and how she changes the dynamic of the show. We did discuss some spoilers as well!
