A Cast Full of Charm & Wit: CBS Ghost’s Panel, Paley Fest 2022!
Attending CBS' Ghost Panel was such a treat. Guests were treated to the premiere of the new episode that aired on April 7th, as well as a Q&A session with the Ghosts cast. There was plenty of fun to be had that night, which I am sure fans of the show won't soon forget.
The evening started with a sneak preview of the new episode entitled "Attic Girl," which was a big treat for fans in attendance. During the episode, a ghost named Stephanie from the '80s who died on her prom night is resurrected in the attic, prompting Sam to confront what happened on her own prom night; Alberta finds out she has other special abilities. In homage to the 1999 movie "She's All That," the episode was one of the most charming ones so far.
Stars and creatives of CBS's Ghosts in attendance were: Rose McIver, “Samantha”, Utkarsh Ambudkar, “Jay”, Brandon Scott Jones, “Isaac”, Richie Moriarty, “Pete”, Danielle Pinnock, “Alberta”, Asher Grodman, “Trevor”, Román Zaragoza, “Sasappis”, Sheila Carrasco, “Flower”, Rebecca Wisocky, “Hetty”, Devan Chandler Long, “Thorfinn, and Joseph Port, Executive Producer, and Co-Showrunner. Natalie Morales, the host of The Talk, moderated the panel.
Cast members of the show are also very witty and charming, which is why the show is beloved by its fans. Rose McIver "Samantha" talked about the genuine connection everyone in the cast shares. Rose even mentioned that they have their own group chat and are constantly in contact with one another.
In the panel, another great moment was when the cast was asked, “ Which character would you like to see guest-star on an episode if they were able to do so?”
Danielle Pinnock, who portrays a spectral Twenties jazz singer, went with “a cool Nineties hip-hop ghost. A ghost rapper!” Asher Grodman, the show’s pantless Wall Street bro ghost, felt the most obvious hole in the roster was once any person who used to be alive “anywhere from 1800 to 1850.” Devan Chandler Long, who performs an adorable undead lunkhead Viking, went meta with the question: “Patrick Swayze. He’s historical. Patrick Swayze, the actor. Because he used to be the Ghost, and then he can educate us about ghosts. There’s a lot of tiers there.” The cast ended up all agreeing that Jason Momoa might be hands-down the best fit for their show.
After that, the panel wrapped up with some questions for the audience. One of the most memorable ones was directed at cast member Bradon Scott Jones who plays “Captain Isaac Higgintoot.” The fan said that she wanted to thank him for opening the dialogue between her and her son on being gay. It touched the actor so much that he actually began crying and so did the fan who asked the questions. Brandon said, “thank you so much for telling me that, it makes it all worth it.” It was such a great note to end the panel on.
