WNA had the pleasure of interviewing the cast and creators of Midnight, Texas. The show premiered last Monday on NBC and the next episode will be on July 31st. So, no worries if you missed the first episode, you can easily catch up!
Yul Vazquez (Rev. Emilio Sheehan) & Jason Lewis (Joe Strong)
Midnight, Texas the series, is based on the books by Charlaine Harris. Midnight is a one stoplight town in the middle of Texas that serves as a haven for both humans and supernaturals. There’s Joe Strong, an angel with a secret. The Rev, who besides being a man of God also happens to be a Were-Tiger. Both have secrets besides their dual natures.
Parisa Fitz-Henley (Fiji Cavanaugh) & Dylan Bruce (Bobo Winthrop)
Fiji, is a witch with a talking cat, and Bobo owns and operates the town’s pawn shop. Fiji is pining for Bobo, but when his fiancée turns up murdered, well I think relationship plans are put on the back-burner. Romance aside, the two have an incredibly strong friendship and Fiji is someone you want on your side.
François Arnaud (Manfred Bernardo) & Sarah Ramos (Creek Lowell)
Manfred is the newest resident to Midnight and as a Medium he fits right in. Creek has grown up in Midnight with her father and brother. She appoints herself Manfred’s welcome-wagon and dishes the dirt on the other residents. In Midnight, the residents are all hiding something—I’m sure this even includes Creek.
David Janollari (Executive Producer) & Monica Breen (Creator/Executive Producer)
Charlaine Harris (Author/Consulting Producer)
Midnight, Texas has two strong mamas and one proud papa behind it. Monica Breen and David Janollari’s love of this town and the characters Charlaine created is evident in their interviews and in the pilot episode. Charlaine is just as happy with the results—and why not? Based on the pilot episode, this show is one I’m very excited for!
Rounding out the group are Olivia Charity (played by Arielle Kebbel) an assassin, Lemuel Bridger (Peter Mensah) a vampire, Chuy Strong (Bernardo Saracino) Joe’s husband, Shawn Lowell (Bob Jesser) and Connor Lowell (John-Paul Howard)—Creek’s dad and brother.
