Cast Interview NotesEdit

  • Blast Magazine[21] (The Cast about their Characters) (10/20/16)
    • Peter Mensah: I play Lemuel Bridger who is a vampire. I’m not sure how else to describe what he does.
    • Arielle Kebbel: I play Olivia Charity. She’s an assassin and she’s incredibly dangerous. She has a really dark past, like most people in Midnight. Throughout the series, we will learn her backstory, how she came to be a hitwoman and why it’s important to her to protect the town of Midnight. There is also a really odd and sweet relationship between her and Lemuel and they feed off each other in more ways than one. As the series goes on, I think that’s going to be a sweet relationship to explore.
    • Dylan Bruce: I play Bobo Winthrop who is the proprietor of the local pawnshop, which has been in Midnight for many years and sells a lot of very odd items full of history. Olivia lives upstairs and Lemuel lives beneath the store. Also, Bobo’s best friend is Fiji.
    • Parisa Fitz-Henley: I play Fiji Cavanaugh who is a witch. She runs a little shop in the town with articles relating to witchcraft and Wicca with crystals and other beautiful things. I like to think of Fiji as a unifier and a protector of her friends who have become her adopted family. A big challenge for her is coming to terms with how powerful she is as a witch. She can do some cool stuff now, but coming into her own power is going to be pretty explosive. Bobo and Fiji are best friends and I wish more. Well, Fiji wishes more but Parisa also thinks that would be cool. She’s got some reasons for not pursuing Bobo though, which we will find out during the season.
    • Sarah Ramos: I play Creek Lovell who is just a girl in town that’s about to find out a lot of her secrets that her overprotective dad and brother have kept from her. She and Manfred hit it off right from the start and have a mutual crush, but they keep getting interrupted and there’s no time to connect because there’s too much danger in the town that they have to fight.
    • Francois Arnaud: I play Manfred, the newcomer in Midnight. He is a psychic and a medium and a little bit of a crook. He’s on the run from someone who wants to kill him and decides to hide in Midnight after his dead grandma’s ghost advises him to.
  • Elle[22] (Jason about Joe the Angel) (2/13/17)
    • Elle: You've said that you get offe/red a lot of pretty boy roles — what was it about Joe, who is literally an angel, that appealed to you?
    • Lewis: "Joe is not like a Hallmark angel — he's not some cherubic icon on the front of a greeting card. He's an immortal creature who has lived through a lot of different circumstances. I think one of the hardest fights in life is to move through your experiences and life's struggles and to hold on to a sense of hope and discovery. That struggle there, I found that pretty interesting."
  • Interview Magazine[23] (Sarah about Creek in Midnight) (3/1/17)
    • BLONDIAU: What do you like about the character you play in Midnight, Texas?
    • Ramos: "Personally, it's really freeing and fun because I get to play for death situations in basically every episode. There's also a really fun romance part of it. Call it a guilty pleasure or not, but I'm a fan of Taylor Swift's music. I love getting wrapped up in how simple and insanely dramatic her love stories are, especially in her early country music. And the show has this small town, destined-to-be-together, heartbreak feel, and I definitely get to play that kind of romance. It's just fun. I feel like I'm in a Taylor Swift song; sometimes I'm like, "Guys aren't really like this in real life. This is fun to pretend!"
