Straw hot media. Oh everybody, uh, you guys, sit back, relax, get a nice cold or hot beverage. If it's blood, Hey, power to you. We have an exciting guest today, Mrnach Bo, and we're all very excited to have her here to talk about all the juicy details in the last episode. Oh, in fact, there sh is now breathing. It's sowhelming heart, bizarre has. So tell me, why would anyone want to be lie dies not have a reputation before she arrives? But Trust me, we have way more funny after line. We have way more funny after line. Okay, are you there? Yes, hi, how are you? Hi? I'm okay now everyone. Everyone's very excited to have you here. I'm excited to be here. I was like pannicking a little. I was like, don't worry, you were early anyway. So you had you had cushion time. So if you were ready, we have a lot of people infected, plenty of people already with their hands up who want to come up and ask you questions about what it's like playing Sylvia. I'm ready. Let's do it, beautiful alright, let's start with Guad so, not only thank you so much for this episode. Um, sorry my coworkers and looking at me like everybody please. Okay, not only was this episode like super touching is being a Latina and a gay person, it was really touching with the part with the embody thought me pulled him aside and was like for there's something wrong with this girl, and it just reminded me so much of like my own alia because like she was very uh in tune with her I don't know if you'd say spirituality, but she used to like look at us and be like there's a demon in you, and like run back on us. So I was wondering if you don't have any like stories like that, of like any of your willows or feels or anything being like the my name is, where are you from? UH, Tennessee, but I'm working on a subway and Mr Tennessee. Okay, well, hello to everybody listening. I actually do. You know, it's it's so funny you bring that up, because I love how the show really brings up the Laftino culture and I definitely one of the stories that I can remember. It's just like when I was a little girl, like my mom talked, took me to do Olympia and for those of you who don't know what that is, is like a cleanse, like what you would call a cleanse, right, and they use like this little egg and then just, yeah, that, I just says, a little egg around you just to kind of take out all the like whatever's going on with you spiritually or whatever, you know. But I'm like a kid, I'm like, I have no idea. My whole thing was like can I eat the egg? What is it here, you know. But but yeah, so definitely that was like a big memory for me and so and and the yeah, she's she was darling. I I fell in love with her. She was so wonderful and that a art. But yeah, I agree with you completely. It's always like our our elders are Wilita's and our that always have that that sixth sense, you know, being being on this earth longer, you know, and like really being able to sense out the well here the vampitos. Never heard of that before. I'M gonna have to look into that. I literally just did a whole out my whole house the other day. You have cleanses. People do, like cleanses...

...of their owns and cleanses the people just kind of like that, but they use a little egg and then they crack it and they look at it like what's inside like? And then and then some will like read it and say, Oh, I see I see this or I see that. So it's really it's really it's cool, but but being like, you know, a young kid, it was like what is going on? So it leaves an imprint on you, for sure, I can imagine. Thank you for the good question, which answer. I love that question. Yes, thank you all right. Let me go ahead and grab our next person. Actually, before I grab our next person, I have to ask this question because I was listening to the podcast and it came up, you know, this Um the notes, handwritten letters that you wrote, Um and I really I wanted to dig a little bit deeper into that. For those that don't know today, you know the podcast episod. So they were talking about Harvey's podcast. They were talking about how Marna wrote these in character letters as Garma's mother, uh and I thought it was the sweetest thing. So I want to know. I want to know more about that. What was the impetus for that? Didn't really help you get into character, you know. Thank you for asking that, because yeah, that was such a it was such a cool thing that he responded so well to it. You know, it Um. It definitely was something that really helped me because when you get cast in something, a lot of times there's a very quick turnaround. So you can, you know, get apart today and I'll tape it and then I get a call and you've got it. Now you're flying out somewhere. So and a lot of times you may not be able to meet your your co stars, are the people you're working with, until you're actually upset. So for me, I really wanted to bring the authenticity. It was. It's very important for me as an actor to really bring the realism and all that background with you, because I think it just gives for such a richer character. And so my thing in this particular I was just so ecstatic getting this part. I was just beside myself and I was like, how do I get in the moment with him? How do I once I get on set, I feel like I already we have this life together. I've birthed them. I you know, I know everything about him. You know I changed. So so I decided, you know, for myself, I was like, I'm going to write him a letter because he's been gone for so long. So I wanted to, like as a mom also to just say you know me, who I'm I'm so ecstatic that your home and just you know that you're here and you sometimes you keep put into words, you know, and sometimes writing for me is easier to tell someone and in that character of like you don't understand how amazing it is to have you home and what that feels like as a mother. And so that was what started the letter. And then once I, you know, I did it and I met him, I just immediately felt a connection. Also, he's just like one of the most warm and most loving person I just I just immediately he just took me in, you know. So I felt that warmth and everything, and so I felt right at home. and Um, afterwards, when I actually received the call that I was coming back, is when I decided, you know what, I'd like to share this with him. I'd like him to know, you know, the kind of backstory that I brought with me and everything, and so I did, and it was it was beautiful because it he really was very receptive to it and and it just it was such a such a bonding thing and just so lovely his you know, his welcoming and everything. That's that's awesome. I think that shows a real dedication, that you really care about the show in the role. Oh, absolutely, absolutely, it's...

...such a well, the show is so amazing and all the you know, the cast is already such hot. You know they're they're so brilliant and they're so into their characters. It's like, I can't I have to come in here, you know, on my a game. I have to. I can't be the weak link here. I gotta pull my weight. You know. Well, you've been great in the show. So thank you. No, no need to be worried. All right, let me bring up our next question. Ask or some kind of human nerd. Hello, hi, hi. I also listened to the podcast, uh, and was really touched to hear about the letter and the thought you put into Sylvia's background, and I'm kind of curious to hear more about I know, like they're not official writer's room cannon, but especially about the sort of ideas you have of Sylvia's background in her life, and also Gearmo's Dad, who is sort of notably absence and unmentioned and uh, it's not clear why that is, but that's something I'm very interested to hear your thoughts about. Oh, absolutely, tell me Your name and where are you calling from? Oh, my name is well, I I go by spiff and I am calling from New York actually. Oh, we're neighbors, must stiff. Well, I love your question because that allows me to expand more on on the whole process too, of coming, you know, in as a character and just, Um, yeah, it's it's you give a script, you know, and and you read it. And especially for this part I came in up, there wasn't much detail, like you don't get a lot of detail of like the background, as you know. So so we bring it in right. So in my letter I also mentioned his father and mentioned how, because I did, I did, I went and I watched, you know, all the episodes. I've already been watching. What I was like, I gotta Russian good through all of them and watch him and really see him and understand him and just how he's such a caretaker and he's a caretaker for me as well. So right now we actually, you know, talking on podcast with him. I was like what, where is your father? Where is he and what is you know, what is the meaning behind his absence right, because I know the writers are so thoughtful and everything has a meaning. It's like every like when I watched the show, it's like, Oh my God, I gotta like back up and watching and listen to that again. Everything has such a clear meaning. You know behind it. You don't want to miss anything that's written or said. So I, you know, thinking about all that. You know, I was like he's such a caretaker. He's a caretaker to me and his father's being absent is a really good question and I'm like, I'm like, for me, I I don't think that I quite I could make up a story now, but I haven't quite decided what what's happening. And also, if I bring in that Harvey had mentioned, you know, you come in and you have a feeling of what could be and then boom, there's there's a script and it's something completely different, you know. But I have this feeling, just me personally, that for some reason we're not together, like there's a split or something that happened. I don't feel like he's gone, like he's like he passed away. I feel like he left and I feel like, Um, there might be some and and that would be an interesting parallel for Sylvia to have harvey leave her as well. You know that kind of Harvey Left. Her husband left. We're not really quite sure what happened between them. So it's your guess. Is as good as...

...mine, I guess. Did I even answer your question? I'm just like, I think it was a really great answer. I feel like you're you're right. Like. I also wanted to say something I really enjoyed about the episode was all the female influences that are clearly important in Guillermo's life. One of my favorite things about him as a character is that he has sort of what people think of as femininity and Feminine Energy. He's a caretaker. He Harvey Specifically Calls Him Maternal with Colin Robinson rather than paternal uh, and that it seems like from the episode that the his female line is also where he gets his van Helsing UH slayer jeans from. Absolutely and I you know, I love that because normally, you know, you would have thought, oh, it's going to be from his dad, right, like I don't know why just through. Normally that's like the paternal side or they they'll go through the paternal paternal side, and I was so happy that they made it the maternal side of him, you know, so me too. To me was a wonderful, beautiful twist, you know, and not, like I said, that's what I loved. Anything that I could come up with. I know that they're going to come up with so much better because they think about I mean, it's just so amazing the writing on the show. Well, thank you for a great question. Some kind of thank you. Thank you so much, Myrna. Thank you. Awesome. Okay, we're getting so many great questions already we've aren't gotten to two. Um, all right, you can tell me to be quiet. No, no, no, no, we love it. Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? We we absolutely love it. I can speak for everyone. Yeah, I'm a I'm a gatherer man. Well, we can talk forever. Don't worry me too. All right, I have invited up. Can D let me invite them up again. There we go. Alright, K and D hi, candy, Hi, Um, I'm calling from southern California. Nice. Yeah, nice to talk to you. And I also felt like last episode was really touching and I guess Um I had a question about like the Spanish dialogue and yeah, like was it translated already in the script, or did were like all the actors that for Grandma's family, where you guys having to like translate either or come up with the earselves, like how did that work? Actually, it was translated. It was translated when I received it. Yes, so I was. I was told, you know, when I was given the audition, needed to be Spanish speaker. So and that's like, that's right at my alley right. So spanished my person language. So my parents, if you haven't, you know heard the podcast that my parents are immigrants from Mexico and so we grew up with just NASA always and so, Um. So, yeah, so that you know, I had that in my in my bag of what I do, and everything just came yeah, but I do the episode. They're really great because they let you you know you'll do the takes as they are and then they let you kind of improvise and bring in your own and so that helps to already know the Spanish parts. And I'm glad you asked this too because, Um, this episode I started speaking a little English as well, just to kind of like, you know, give that indication that I know like my mother, she she's she speaks Spanish, you know, and her English has an accent in it. However, she understands and can speak English perfectly, but she feels so much more comfortable in Spanish. So it's like I kind of that's one of the things I kind of grabbed for Sylvia as well, you know. But...

...but it's fun to play with that, you know, going back and forth, and it's interesting to because I'm wondering, like even for you, candy, like as an audience member, because some of the things are not translated, what that's like for you. But do you get the gist just from and a lot of here? We will, will, we'll, we'll say what's going on. Yeah, yeah, I know some Spanish because, yeah, I took some in high school and a lot of my discord friends are Spanish speakers that themselves. So they were kind of like translating while we were watching, which was really cool of them. So and they were saying they really, they really liked it, like they like it's just really representative. And Yeah, it is. It is, and that makes me so happy and a lot of that's harvey to harvey really really pushed for it to be very authentic. He really really wanted that, and so I'm grateful for that. Yeah, it was really cool. Thank you fancying. Oh, absolutely, thank you. Awesome. That was another spectacular question. Not going to be out of the park so far. I was going to ask that question if someone else didn't. I'm glad that that question got asked because I I do not speak Spanish, even though I probably shouldn't because I'm from Florida. Um, but I definitely think that the gist of what you were trying to say and and and the emotions came through, and so it worked for for speakers and non speakers. Yeah, yeah, and I love hearing that because for me it would be hard to turn that part of my brain off, you know, and be like, okay, they were speaking German. What I get it, you know. Well, I got it, and I think other people did too. We have before we get to the next question. Another, another question from me. So I assume this was, and you can tell me if I'm wrong, was your first time on the mansion the House set, was it? Yes, what was that? Yes, Oh my God, it was incredible. I just I walked in, you know, and I was just like wow, this is where it all happens. This is where everything happens. It was really cool to see the set. It was really, really incredible, and just getting to run up and down the stairs, because we did we had to do that a bunch of times, you know, and on a lot of takes when we're when we're chasing Nadia. But it was a really great experience. It was like, it's amazing to see it in real life and just to see how all the details in it that you wouldn't necessarily pick up unless the camera were to like come in and zero in right. A lot of detail work and Um and also the house was in shambles, so I didn't get to see it before had all the tree branches and everything, you know, but but it was it was really cool. Well, when we when we spoke to a new who plays the became character. Right, I don't think you've interacted with but no, I seeing he talked about the same thing and he he spoke about some of his favorite things in the in the set, and I would curious if you could think of one piece of furniture, one item, one part of the setting. Do you have a favorite part of the House set? Oh, that's a really great question. Oh my gosh. I will tell you one thing. I kept wanting to go into the main room, the one with the couch, and I kept looking at the couch and our scene was not in there and I just kept looking at I was like I want to go in there, I want to go in there, and I didn't. I'm not really I think we were like really tired after the end, because I was telling a friend I was like I didn't have to work out after that episode because I was well, it was so like physical, a lot of physical work, that I just I didn't do it. And but but I was drawn to it. Oh Man, no, I feel bad. Well, hopefully you'll have another chance to bring me. Yes, well, we'll start a petition to get you back on that set. Yeah, but there's a lot of like just even like the wall paper and just everything,...

...and especially because they had done, you know, the deterioration, like just even the tree branches on everything like growing and just, Um, I love that staircase, I really love it. And but but it is a lot taller than I thought, you know from seeing it on TV. So I'm I'm a little scared of heights. So I was and they were like and when they were like just don't lean on the railing, you know, don't lean, and I was like, okay, I'm just gonna stand right here and throw my, you know, my steaks, but, but, but, yeah, so that was like it's just man, they should have like a you know how they have pop ups, you know, they need to have a pop up house. For sure, for sure, going to that to F x. That would that would be the morning, I think. Alright, so the next person we have is feed your Tom Ten. I think, hopefully I'm pronouncing that correctly. Tom Tin, tomb tin, something like that. They'll tell us for themselves. Yes, do tell us. And I realized I'm asking People's names. I apologize if that's an invasive you don't have to say your name if you don't watch. Hello, Um, I'm happy to say my Um and I'm in from upstate New York and the finger lakes. Um, yeah, it's very nice. Um, I want to say I so, so enjoyed this episode. This is one of the one of two so far. It was the wedding in this one that my partner and I rewatched immediately after we watched it on Hulu, like we're just like started again. I want to see all of that again, especially the family scenes, were just phenomenal. I wanted to share that. I did my homework before this and I saw your youtube channel and you have a phenomenal singing voice. Oh. So, so all of you should go and listen to your music. Um, thank you, of course. It is absolutely beautiful and the lyrics, the original songs, are just lovely. Um. So I guess I don't have a question. I have a pitch because there are a ton of you on this cast that are really excellent musicians. Anoop is a wonderful musician. We Know Harvey Sings. Matt Barry, of course, is a musician. So I'm just gonna say that we would all be very excited if you all put together a cast EP and put it up on band camp. I love that. I think you should do it. I think it would be a big hit and I expect there are like hidden talents in that cast that we don't know about. So I agree with you. Completely awesome. And you want to know something like funny about that is that my husband and I we we love that you're dead song. Oh my God, is that not the best cover it? Well, cover it. That's what we were talking about doing. Yeah, like I was like, okay, I'm gonna singing a little bit because, like I told my friend, do a single. It all okay, okay, is that all right with you, Matthew? Are you kidding me? That's more than all right with it. So, so I'M gonna sing. This is my version of it, because I probably blues it up a little. I'd be like, don't sing if you won't to live long. They have no use for your song. You're dead, you're did, you're did, you're did, and that this world. Hey, there you go. Yes, wow, come on, round of applause. That was incredible. That so much. Oh, thank you, emily. Thank you so much for like looking me up. I love that. I'm like yeah, thank you. We absolutely want you back in seasons five and six, more and more and more Sylvia, more and more. Thank you, Emily. That was awesome. I I could never have predicted that we'd get a blues up, you know, just a version of your dead. That was that was great. I also did like Spanish too. It's like then they can do that'd be cool, right,...

...or like a fusion between the two. Some of it in Spanish and some of it in England. That would be awesome. Yes, let's do it. Well, I'M gonna do I'm gonna talk to my husband, because he's my he's my songwriting duo, my partners. So that would be yeah, we gotta do it now. That's phenomenal. That's the best idea I've ever heard. You should absolutely do that. They already had it in, didn't they have it in our seat? Yes, yes, yeah, they totally did. And Norma Tana, she was like she was big in her back in the day. Right, and Oh, it's so cool. It's like I'd always heard, I'm sorry, you know, I'm gonna gap, but I've always heard that, like Um, that songs have a life of their own and they find their homes. They're an energy, you know, within themselves, and so a lot of songs like well, well, be there, don't really, it's not their time, but they're kind of traveling and like this one. I love the way it just got found again, so beautiful. And she just got she just got brought back. You know that? I love that. That's beautiful. She was a really cool person to real life story is really exciting. Yeah, Oh, thank you so much. Thank you for answering my question and singing for us, so I didn't have no problem. Thank you for prompting that. That that singing, emily. That was any time. All right. Um, wow, I don't even I how is someone going to follow that? Uh, let's let's find out. I'm gonna Bring up Soy rain, who I know is going to have a great question because they have had great questions in all of our other events. Yeah, these are amazing questions. They really really aren't hello. When? When? US? That is I have questions from some of from the what do you think of the presentation of Hispanic Culture in media now versus when you were grown up? Oh Man, that is something Harvey and I touched on that. Um, I am so excited for right now I can't even tell you because I feel like there have been so many and harvey himself, he has opened so many doors and it's literally slaying it out there, you know, of all these new stories coming out where. When I started out Um and I'm from I'm from uh, I was born in Texas, and so that's a whole different, you know, way of being Um. But back in the day, when I started, there weren't a lot of parts you know, and there was a lot of Um, you know, people would change their names because Americanized them, you know, to try to make it in the industry, to kind of hide, which is which is so sad. Uh, it's really, really sad to me. And and so that's why I'm so excited for what's happening now in in everything, and not just even cultures, just in people. It just feels like to me like we're in this we're in this time where there's no boundaries, like people, no age limits, no you know, no limits on nationality, no limits on who you love, no limits, you know. Uh, that to me is exciting. So I'm excited to see what's to come. And there's a lot of like emerging, uh not, you know, writers and producers and directors, and there's so many stories, you know, to be told, such beautiful stuff, and I think it's all of that. I think I love having this melting pot, you know, having come to New York and and all of a sudden this is crazy. But, like you know, when I came to visit before I moved here, being in the bathroom and, Um, okay, the story is not going in a bad way. Sorry, being and like somebody speaking Russian in the stall. That to me, you know, and I was like that is cool,...

...that is so cool that so many different people can just live together, exist and and you know, I love that. Yeah, I hope I thank you. Thank you, and can I ask question? Go for it, Um, I just want to know. Um, what's your favorite song? My favorite song, oh my Gosh, changes, it changes. I'll tell you what, though, since since Olivia John Passed, I have been just she was like I wanted to be her. I was, you know, at her time I was like, my brother will tell you. I was like, you know, sitting there in front of the mirror with a brush she goes, you know, just sitting there singing all these songs and and just this is gonna be interesting. Like as a singer, I wasn't as competent when I was younger as I am in my acting and but I signed up for my high school talent show and I sang Um, I honestly love you, by her. And and so, yeah, so her passing that right now. I'm really into her right now. And and and Blondie. I'm like, I made yeah, I'm making myself right now. But I'm going back to those times and kind of you know, you know how music just like sparks all these the memories, right, it's like it's the music is yeah, but that music, like it's like a soundtrack to our lives because, you know, you hear tune or something and you remember, Oh, I remember, I was here when that song was like big or whatever. But yeah, not really that. Yes, that was very sweet. Um, that was a good choice. Um, you know, it was very sad when when Olivia and John Pass. I was also a big Fan. In fact, my mother was the one that got me into Olivia, John and Greece and Sanna do and I was with her when, when, when the news came, it was very sad. So, right, good of you to mention her and talk about, you know, her great music. Yeah, yeah, right. Our next person, I was going to say we should do a duet. Oh My, I don't know if I'm confident enough to do that. I am a singer, but I don't know if it's not my show. Um, I will, I will invite party, poison up, uh, and maybe they'll do it. Oh, no, no, no, not today. Um, Olamrna, my name is Jamie. Um, I'm actually from Florida too. But Um, I am Honduran on my Dad's side and resilient on my mom's side, so pet and espanol, Sobian, but I mean Inciendo Lentamente, very slow span. I'm working on it. But, Um, it was great to see you come back this week, along with the rest of the de la crue his family. Um, there was such positive, strong vibes there. It was really digging it, besides the whole vampire slang thing. But I wanted, yeah, I wanted to Um, to touch on an earlier question and get your insight and thoughts on. Um, there seems to be like a growing trend of Hispanic and that, you know, characters on screen and movies and TV Um being shown in a more positive light compared to a few years ago and there were more harmful stereotypes and depictions. So Um, yes, I definitely think it. We're going in the right direction there. So I also wanted to see how you feel about knowing that you are helping people see themselves on screen represented in a positive manner. Oh Man, that's so cool. I'm gonna read me like I'm like wow, thank you, thank you that. You know. Yeah, I never think about it, but like, yeah, we're the change right where that that that whole bringing up music again,...

...but it's like the man in the mayor, you know, we we're more powerful than we realize. Of course, a lot of times right and you you you change something and people notice. But that thank you so much for mentioning that, because that just warms my heart, because that makes me feel like I'm just so glad that that's happening and that people are viewing her that way and the whole family. I agree with you, Um, there was not a real positive light. The roles that that that that there were were very minimal and they were usually, like you said, you know, like drug dealers or this or that, or you know, just not in a positive light, not showing. You know that education is a big thing for Latinos as well, you know, and a lot of immigrants that come that not I'm not trying to get political or anything, but you know, like immigrants that come to the states. You know there are doctors and people that are very well educated, but for for the necessity, you know, that they come to this country and not just let the knows from all over the world. I will I want to this is making me want to tell you this story, because this is, this really was a beautiful thing my mother said. I love my mom. She has something some great she's been so supportive of me since I wanted to do this. You know, my dad was always like, uh, Mika, why don't you be a secretary or be like something where, you know, it's not so flighty right. But she told me one time, and I said, mom, I got another, another audition for a maid, and I was like, you know, it's all these made roles and made roles and and and she like she looked at me and she said, well, you know me how maids need a voice too, and they're just as important as everybody else. So it's your job to give them that voice and positive like. It definitely reminds me. I can't remember what show was on. I want to say maybe modern family, but Um, there was a a Hispanic woman and they were talking about how people make fun of her accent because of her broken English, and she said something akin to Um, I understand two languages and you only understand one. Girl, a shade. Oh that's what Harvey said this episode. Yeah, all right, thank you me, and I oh absolutely that another work has really hitting some awesome points today and some great points about representation. And you know, when a new came we hit similar points about, you know, people speaking far see and and and all, you know, the wedding and everything, the dresses. It's so great to see that this show has amazing representation across the board. Yes, I love that. We have way more fun. Okay, well, now we have let's see account terrible. Hopefully their question will not be terrible. Um, let's see what they have to say. Uh, I just wanted to ask about something or from the continuity in season one. I just want to know what you, as Silvere I, would have thought about when Um, Garmo got really into interview with the vampire and like just knowing the whole like vampire slayer heritage, what you thought of that? Oh, like so you're saying. Okay, I'm sorry, so you're you're asking me from from the episode where I first was introduced, or just as the character in general, like as Garmo's mom and a vampire slayer just like back in the past. How did you feel when Guiaro got really into vampires? Oh my God, I know, I oh.

Well, the thing, I think the thing that was brought up in this new episode was the fact that it's it's it's like a thing that just kind of hits us and we weren't really like super aware, right and, like I said, this is all about the writing and how the writers see this Um and so I'm curious to see how had we done this before, you know what I mean, like what's going to happen in the next episode, what's going to come up light of this Um? I feel that in my own you know, writing as as as an actor, if I had known this. You know, I just feel like I wanted my son to be who he wanted to be, and again, that was the thing we touched on the podcast, which was so cool. It's just that I wanted my son to be who he is, you know, not to be tied to the things or that anything that I felt as a mother was tied to when I was a kid growing up, because I'm coming from too completely different cultures, you know, coming from living in Mexico and coming here, so you're coming with already all these norms and understandings, and so to come in here to the you know, the US, well, to Staten Island or to Brooklyn, so where am I to Brooklyn and, you know, having to carry these two things and feeling like I had to be a certain way right to fit in. And so for Sylvia, I feel that she didn't want her son to go through that, that he shouldn't have to feel a pressure from society or for any or even from me, you know, for him to be his own person and to be happy. And that was important to me and that's the whole reason for you know, as my parents, you know, immigrants coming here, they want a better life for their children. You know, they want that. I want that for Harvey, I want for Guillermo. I want Guillermo to have a better life, to be happy and to feel like he could be anything he wants to be. And so, you know, and as kids, you see kids going, Oh, I'm going to be this now, oh now I'm going to be this, you know, and kind of just be thinking, oh, he's just going through a thing, you know, he's just got things. Unknowingly, after twelve years of not seeing him, that it became a thing or that it always was a thing. Did that answer a question? You know, thank you. I feel like every time someone asks a question, they get the response plus something different that is even better than the response. So you're don't don't worry. I think everyone's happy with what you're saying. Okay, good, okay, let's see. We have someone who hasn't spoken yet. COREO simplie. The name is or Coreo, one of the two of those cores. Maybe core is that right? Corre hi, La La. When I was not, I wanted to ask. I wanted to ask pain. I'm sorry, I love Spain, I love but thank you, Barcelona. I'm not from there, but I don't when I wanted to ask if you your character, Sylvia, for some reason I didn't mind hanging out with vampires. Do you think the girl's night, she would have she would have been invited to the girl's night, and do you think she would get along with the guys, Nadia and Marga? Oh my God, that isn't Oh my God, I can't believe. Are you reading my mind? I wanted to know. I was watching the episode. I was like, Oh my God, how fun. I was like, I wish I could have gone to have a little girl party. Yeah, and I also which movie, but you choose the words. See, my first things. Think. I don't know.

I like the Godfather. I don't know why you even been said that. That's not very like, you know, like, but we need to sing along song. So yeah, so they probably would reject what I would say. They'd be like no, we're not watching that. Sorry. So I probably would have no say. But I think, I think that even in the in the scene, in the dining scene, maybe you picked up that. You know, I was so interested in in Naja. I saw her and I was like, Oh, I want to talk to her more, I want to hear everything. I want to hear about my my Guyamo's life when he's not, you know, with me, what's happening and everything. I think that, Um, I would totally have a blast because, you know what Sylvia needs in that out. I think she I think. I think she would get along with him. I need to. I think Marla, Mar was so cute. It just that whole scene was amazing. MARLA and friends. I think, Oh, I love that. Yeah, we would do that little little limbo, right, a little tump tump with a little a little little look, a little dog. That's we've got to make that happen the next season. Thank you for answering. Absolutely I'm glad you were there to tell me how to pronounce the name, because I was I was doing poorly. Oh, you're okay. Yeah, there's so many, right, you just never know. And then a lot of them when they start sticking numbers, like when they do their numbers, and you know I'm kind of slow sometimes and I'm like what, Oh, you don't pronounce you don't pronounce it. It's part of the thing, right, it's just shorthand. That's fair. I think we have time for one more question. Awesome, so hopefully it's going to be a good one. Coming from and I know how to say this name, it's trashing fan girl. Hi, hi, not as I'm also on me Europe, but from pull I'm UH. So, I know, I know you're following the show. So I was wondering if you have like your another favorite character or your favorite storyline from the show, like from whatever is in general. You know, I was thinking about that today because I I have got three runners up pay that. I just I absolutely tore me up laughing so hard. And and somebody mentioned before like the whole rewinding and watching again. I'd love watching the episodes over and over again just to catch everything, but I have to say this episode was special, not just because I was, you know, in it, but the whole story for Guillermo was so beautiful and and done so well and just that. And then the Colin Robbins just cracks me up so much I just I can't stand it. It's just too funny. When just I've been look at him and I'm like, Oh my God, this is this is hilarious. Um. So, between that one and when they were trying to get Colin into the school and they kept going back and forth with the different Um relationships of who was who was the father, who was the mother? who was this, who was that? That tore me up I was laughing so hard. And then my third one that I would have to say is the one where they went back into the eighties and when they were trying to not be vampires. Remember when Nandor went went off and and was at the place where they they had the what is it, the the old eighties? Why can't I not think? Aerobics, aerobics, the old I was thinking of like the Jane Fondi aerobics right exactly. Was So freaking hilarious. There's so many good episodes, though, but those are ones that I just I could just watch over and over and over again. Yeah, like, do...

...you have a favorite? Oh, yeah, I don't know. It's so hard to choose, but definitely the getting Colin Robinson into school was one of the boss I also think the night market from this season. Oh, I forgot about that. That was all. Yeah, the whole Senerator was amazing. Just to see like another creatures in this universe was so, so hard blowing to see. Oh, I know. And then the little things that came out of the trash can. And you know when there will those little like be looking things, so cute fairies. Oh, I'm stiller comed bees. The little fairies were so adorable. I think Sylvia should chop at that market and try to find Cilantro. That was you're kissing acting great episodes left and right. Oh my God, they're just all. Yeah, they're so wonderful. How can you like and even in the ones when it's just little snippets of other ones that you're just like just the whole the directors, the writers, the crew, everybody. It's just so amazing all the work they put in. Yeah, I think you think that it just can get better, but it just keeps on going and getting better and better and you can decide what's what's the best, what's your favorite? And Mura, I know I agree with you completely. Thank you for an awesome question to close this out. Actually, before before we end, uh your your your mention of Nandor makes me want to ask a very quick question to get your take. Okay, yeah, so obviously there is a a, you know, a large especially in this season they've been teasing it so much, a large contingent of the fan base that loves the concept of Nandor and and Garmo being together, or Mandimo as the community calls them affectionately. How do you think that that Sylvia would react to pass the vampire of it all? How do you think he would react to to Gamo and Nandor being together? And do you like the characters being together? Personally, are you into that idea? I gotta tell you this, I just love them together, watching them together, it's just incredible. However, as as as La Mama, they me, they mey memo, I would want him to be a little nicer. I would probably be like, okay, I can I can handle this. I want to get to know you better, but you need to be nicer to him, right, because I think he's a little sometimes. Yeah, he's a little he's a little mean to gay at well. But although I love now how he's fighting back now, you know, like he talks back and it's just coming into his own power. So that's kind of Nice and I probably see that as also like, you know, the syndrome, like when they said when you were young, and kids just like they pull on, they pull, you know, they tease you and they poke you and pinch you because they like you. So that little fighting would be like, look at that, it's a kid and yeah, I would make him. Yeah, but I don't know if I could, you know, like garlic in it. That's a good point. I don't have to look at what I feed it. Yeah, comes over. Well, I don't think you eat much of anything. I think at the time they eat, they project that vomit, don't they? You probably be like eating and then and then spitting in the little thing on the side, exactly like a wine tasting. Or we can have a we have a pet dog and the dog ends up eating all the food. That's great. Now that you keep now I would love to see it in season five or six. You know, the two of them together, hopefully, and you know that you come to some being like,...

...listen, let's have a conversation. You need to be a little bit sweeter to my boy if you want to stay together. Being the protective mom. I love that absolutely. I would be like my boy, you're going to treat him right. Well, hopefully we get to see that soon and we get to see you back as soon as possible. Oh, thank you so much.
