From Straw Hut Media

Straw media. M Hello, welcome to behind the shadows. I'm your host, Harveygie. In the show we talk all things shadows, from the celebrities who love the show to the actors who are in it to all the production team that makes it come to live. Today our guest is Kristin Shaw, and we ask major questions like, Kristen, what's your blood time? And also, for the first time ever, Kristen will announce the special talent that the guide has that no one has known for centuries, where even it's so overwhelming heart bizzar has so tell me why would anyone want to be alive? Deaf Ma hair a reputation before she arrives, but trust me, we have way more fun in the after life. We have way more fun line. Welcome to our first episode. Um, Kristen, thanks so much for being, uh, my first guest of season four of talking about what we do in the shadows. Uh, you have become such a fan favorite, like it's my favorite thing. Like, have you seen the art that's done for the guide? You know what? I have seen a little bit of it. It's really beautiful. It's gorgeous, like I've seen, like, like you know, some of the storylines that people make is absolutely beautyful. So now you're stuck with well, I just sort to get it up a little bit. Just keep talking. It's good, don't worry about it, Um. So we start off with season four and we left off where everything is in chaos. Uh, there in crates going overseas, Guillermo Naja, Naja. We all come back to the opening of this season and everyone has a new goal. So we have except the guide has been sitting in place for a whole year. So she's been sitting down quietly waiting for her next adventure and orders. So we see guero come back and he may or may have not found someone in London and he is determined to put himself first. We see Naja wanting to open a nightclub. Colin Robinson is reborn because energy vampires die after a hundred years and they're reborn. So we see baby Colin and Lazlow has to promotion. They sent, yeah, Stephanie gouts on too. Yeah, these are pressed, pressed, yeah, and they're doing this thing for um where you can get what we do in the shadows juices. That press has apple, lemon, ginger and beet juice and I will say it's it's heavy on the ginger, so it'll it's got a kick. Mind you, we weren't asked to promote this, but we are because we love the show and now we like pressed. I like pressed. I've had the drinks before. If you send me something free, I will. You heard her first, senator, Kristen. She's going to promote it. Um. So, working on the show this season we got to work with a lot of child actors. Uh. Did you get to do any scenes with them? No, but I got to hang out with them in the hair and makeup trailer when they were getting especially the hair trailer, when they only the hair trailers, they were getting their wigs. Well, sometimes the makeup trailer when they would put the dots over their faces to reimpose mark space. Um. And what was their name? Violet. Right, was violet WHO's on? She's the the star of Sesame Street. She's one of the main kid actors on ssame street. When I saw violet come in Oh to get covid tested, we were masked, but I just knew who she was instantly and we've been watching sesame street with me and Ruby, my little girl, and it was like I was so star Struck. Um, I could I could barely speak. You and kyle are director. Remember Kyl nowitzcheck because he he has babies as well, and they were like, Oh, I knew who she was. It was like it was so funny because I haven't seen suthme street in a while, but so talented. Remember the tap scene and the dancing. She's really good. She's she's firing on all cylinders. Speaking of star Struck, my family is now stars struck with someone named Harvey Giad, who plays the fun house. It's a fun house for the club. It's a fun house, Fun House. It was funny, funny, the Fun House, the Fun House on Disney. Um. Plus, if you have a...

Chad, after you done watching shadows, go over and watch harvey because he's still good and he sing a lot. Harvey is a very good singer. La La, LA, LA, LA, la La. Oh, yes, yes, well, we sing. We actually we're gonna have a duet and drop an album together. But that kind of got in the back burner because in the first season we met, we were, I remember this so vividly. We were at lunch and for some reason it got around that was for lunch today and it was like, Oh, it's build your own poutine because we're in Canada and uh, and I was so excited and I think we're in line to build our own poutine and we just started singing. Do you remember the song that we started singing? Yes, I mean, we did sing it together on this show for season three and it was cut. No, it wasn't. You don't cut anything. It was cut and building the teen it was. That was it. That's as far as we got and we just kept singing it. I don't think we ever had another poutine date on set after that. I'm sorry, I'm derailing this because I just realized this is for the fans to talk about the show. It's okay, I know it's actually talking about the show, but we'll talk about life and everything and what you're liking at the moment, what you're working on, all that stuff, because it's gonna be people who love what we do in the shadows and we'll talk about it. But we also love the people who are on it, so we'll talk to them about anything. How many followers do you have? What's the numbers here? We don't know. We don't look at numbers here. We look, let's talk about let's talk about the guide. So, Um, the trajectory of the guide. Are you loving the story and the art that it's having, or how did season four play out for you? Well, I'm not. It's good. We can't about episode two. Yeah, right, even, yeah, we had our big moment together. The guide is got the hots for Giamo because he's a van healthy and she loves living on the edge with the ultimate bad boys. So that was really fun to get to work with you on that. That was a dance, it was a little tango, it was a dance and you were slipping away and it was fun, so fun to work with you because you're so you're so good. I know you kind of a straight man, and this aren't too hard be like SMA is, the straight man, and playing the straight man well is it's really hard to do and you do it, and you do it, I mean really well. Not Well enough to be nominated for an Emmy Butt, like at all. No, not at all. Uh No, but every but no, it's fine. It's fine. But everything else got it's fine because, you know, we did get nominated for costume and first stunt and we did not only for Costume Laura Montgomery, we got a tig and the team got eminy first stunts. We got nominated for two episode scripts, Sarah Def Talas and Stephanie Robinson, Um and and uh and two more categories. So like it's we did nominated for the shows general and we got nominated for comedy as ensemble. So we nominated. Congratulations. I just had to undercut my compliment to you. I don't know I do that. You're because you're so, so good as as Gamo on the show. Thank you. It was fun to get to it was fun to get to play off of you. Went on when in that moment we have way more fun. Mh I just love when you're on set because you bring such an energy that I know it's gonna be a good day. Like it's just because you know, our hours are long, our days are long, you know, and so sometimes you need that extra boost of someone just you know that energy really makes a difference and and you always bring it. You always bring that energy to set and I get excited when you're in seat and it's hard to actually, I didn't realize this, but it's hard to perform opposite you as a straight man in the show because I just want to laugh and I can't. It's so hard to like I'm the only one who doesn't get to like really, you know, all the other characters, I feel cool, they're so bigger than life and and farcical and and and, Um, you know all of that, which is usually what I play. I usually play that like, you know, another stuff, and this is life, real life. I just go around. I'm very big in real life, and that's true because when people come up to me and they meet me, they're like, Oh, you're not like year. Most like well, I I mean there's elements of him, and they're like no, no, I like, I like. It's okay. Thanks mom. How do you...

...know that, whenever someone comes up to me Um to say, oh my gosh, I love Blah, Blah Blah or whatever it is, it's wonderful. It's I realized it's a wonderful moment because it's actually not about me at all. It's about them sharing something that they like, Um to a stranger, and it's like this one moment in time that you get to like connect with someone that you normally would never talk to Um and as soon as I realized that it had, it wasn't about me and it was about them. I find those interactions when people comped me, really delightful. Um. But going back to guerremo, I think that he is sort of grounds the show. He's our way into the show. and Um, and you play the funny dead Pands so good that you still get lapsed. True. Yeah, it's I love playing him. And and he's evolving too. This season he comes back and he's not taking, you know, crap from anyone and Um, and he's decigned to leave. But he stopped for two reasons, and those are because there's a child now in the House, which is baby Colin, and Um that that's bad news. I don't think these vampires, Um, are have perfected parenting. UH, and neither has Guillermo. You know, maybe he's helped out with nieces and nephews and whatnot, but we don't know a lot of his backstory. But he's definitely not gonna leave a child in the hands of these vampires. But now nandor wants him to be his best man and and stay around and and and help him with that, Um, which I'm excited about. But also why do you think it was? Going back to the guide? Why do you think it was so tough for the guy to let go of the Chamber of curiosities? Well, I well, she was in charge of it for hundreds and hundreds of years. It was like her identity sort of. You know, if you become your whatever you do for a living becomes who you are through and through. And she has no social life. I mean I think she used to and that was getting with those vampire slayers, uh, and she god punished for it and now this is her punishment and I think she just got so lost in it for all this time that, yeah, that she couldn't, she couldn't go in it. She would. It is very important. It's very important to her. The vampiret council, which is which was a funny thing to playoff of, because it doesn't matter and the vampires in her world could care less. Uh. I love that seed in and where an attaches or not, just in the Vampirett Council in London, and she's got her like little boom box that she's like, and the way it shot she looks so sad like those. Those meetings are Um anyways. Yeah, so I forgot your question. You answered it. I say, why do you think it was so hard for the guy to let go of the Chamber of curiosity? So, I mean that's what she's known for centuries and also who she was. She's also in charge of the raiths, though, Um, and they listened to her, uh, and so they have to kind of be won over, right to turn the space into a club. So what do you think it would take for someone to convince you to as as the guide, to completely give up that world of like writing the races and everything? Yeah, like, if that, what would it take to be like runaway with me and leave all this behind? Oh my gosh, I don't think it would take much. Said literally anyone. She is so lonely. I really feel her loneliness when I play her. Like she's so awkward and, Um, weird, like weirder than them in a way, and she cannot make connections. I think with Naja, she's over the course of the season. She she gets to be a little like band girls, a little bit like in her shadow, and uh, it just doesn't doesn't. Yeah, though, I mean I liked those scenes with ladslow too, because it was sort of the first time one of the like the vampires don't care about anyone, but it was nice that he was taking some attention. So, you know, taking her on as her pet project was was fun for her men probably the most anyone's ever looked into her life ever. But she's exciting and the idea that this season you get to work with Naja, Natasha's character a lot and you kind of become this really cool and I would love seeing you guys do the scenes. You come like this duo at the club, which is really fun,...

...and your outfits are so extravent. How is how is that? How is working more this season closely with Natasha? It was great. It was so fun. Um, I love watching her work. She's just like just full of like every line delivery is just got like all of the energy and all of the power and she's always never had a bad take. She is just got that character on lock and and she works her butt off. You know, works the butt off. Yeah, I would say so. I think that all these characters are perfectly cast. I've always said that that every I can't imagine the show with anyone else playing the roles that we're playing. Like I just can't when you say who would play, I just can't. I just can't because it's so one of the few like casts, you know, when you get to get set and sometimes like Oh, I can see them why they're playing this. As soon as you get to say you're like, oh, that's interesting. Oh, I didn't see Oh, yeah, okay, you know. But like this is the first time that I was like wow, everyone, everyone tends across the board, just fantastic. Ted. What about the costumes? Oh, the costumes were delicious. They were so fun. Um, I get the name of Lauren's costume assistant, I want to say barbed, barbed Barbara. Oh, forgive me, as soon as I get there, I'll remember. She does have a couple. I'm thinking of the one that goes shopping a lot. She was sort of like going back to where she used to go shopping because she was in a God pags when she was in her, you know, teens and probably twenties. So a lot of the things it was I think it was easy for her to access that sort of club, got world and and it was yeah, it was so fun to get out of the Nune, the Monk Nunnery like outfit into this, these looks that are coming up. It's so good. We got some looks coming up, honey, they're so good. One of the looks that you have coming up is so I don't know. I just feel like when I when I saw you for the first time, it was so weird to see you from like the first time. We saw you floating and flying with the blonde hair, and you've got to different like um evolution of hair design too, like the hair has changed as well. Yeah, tomorrow the hair stylists that she wanted to now that the guy just doesn't kept coming back. I think you gotta work out the WIG a little more and we all had you was going away. They put the WIG in a box in the back and they're like, oh, that's the guy, check it out, dusted off and it's and then just bats fly out of it. But I really do love the looks that you have coming up the season. I'm excited for people to watch them and you'RE gonna inspire people at comic cons and cosplays. I've seen, you know, because I've done a couple of comic cons and I've seen so many guides that come up in groups and it's so cool because it's like it's pretty like spot on, like from your hats to like your gown, to your hair, to the makeup, because you also have kind of look for your makeup. So someone took the time and like analyze all of this from like the show and and stopped and played and stopped and played or saw steals of you and it's so cool because this new version of you is going to inspire a new cosplay generation of guides. Speaking of Comic Con, and and are meeting our fans of the show. Are you going? Yeah, going to comic con this weekend? Yeah, yeah, we're going this weekend. So well, when this in this airs, it will be next this weekend, so it'll be our next Thursday. So it'll be this weekend. This weekend starting. We have a panel. So if you want to come see us out this weekend at Comic Con, come on down San Diego Comic con the panel. It's it's Sunday afternoon. They put us in Hall H, I think hall H, which is the biggest hall. So Um, we need you, guys. So it's gonna feel really empty because it's so big. I don't know. I've heard that they were already like the numbers were pretty good and high. So you should try to get a ticket now. If you can't because it's it's so hot, you're lucky if you get a ticket to it right now. What what are you going to wear the comic conry, because you're known for you're becoming, I mean I hope people know that you are very good at a fashion in...

...your real I'm I'm gonna wear a couple office because I'm gonna be there for a couple of things, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Um. So, Friday, I think we have Um, was what we do in the shadows party. I think it's Friday right. No, I think it is. I mean Friday, Saturday too, because I'm gonna be burgers. Are You doing your funhouse? Uh No, but there's a screening of Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn on Thursday night. If you get a chance to check it out, you should check out the first two episodes where they introduce Um night wing, which is my character on Harley Quinn. Uh, Dick Grayson, I played nightwing on that. Are You congrats? Are you gonna be there for your for Your Blue Beetles show? No, Bluebido doesn't come out until next year and they're still finishing the last part of the film in Puerto Rico Right now, so I think it will be hard to get some of the cast to go. So I think this time next year we will be probably a comic con, or at one some comic cons, to promote blue beetle, the live action feature coming out, which is amazing. It's the first Mexican I don't understand why you're going to be at comic con. I gotta go. I gotta go because I love it and and obviously for shadows. We gotta go and, like you know, say hi to all the fans to come down. But are you going to bed? Yes, I'm always your friend anywhere we go. That's true. We did have, we do have some adventures in Toronto we're filming. Um, a lot of you may not know this, but Christ is a wonderful mother to the most amazing little girl. Um, she's so smart and so like quick, like you know she is, and she's a fan of, Um, you know, Mickey Mouse Fun House. So she's my favorite. Like literally, that's all it did. Yeah, come come by before eleven, before to Leve PM, midnight. Right, right, right, right. I know last time I was across the street from Christens and I was visiting Stephanie, who's the EP on our shown writer and uh, and we're like Oh, Christmas, across the street was just go overstly high and we text her. I was like hey, and she's a harvey. It's eleven, it's in bed and we're like Oh, I didn't regret it a little bit, but every cell in my body was like no, no, and you send me a picture of you, you, you in bed with your husband and just like we're in bed, Harvey, and it was like the funniest picture and I was like to Stephanie and she started laughing because Stephanie's birthday was a birthday party. And I was like Ah, and I was like well, I'll catch you next time and of course I think you left. It never happened. It never happened. But did you already start shooting? Because you might not know this, but Christians in a million shows, so obviously isn't. What do the shadows and a fan favorite. She's obviously in Bob's Burger's. If you didn't recognize her iconic voice, you've been under did your character voice right now? Is that Aday. There, there it is, and if you don't recognize that character, then I feel sorry for you. I'm gonna do my night wing voice for you for the first time ever before you're released here. This's ready. Yeah, yeah, where's Batman? Is Scary. We have way more fun. Oh, you know what I do? What you guys to come over too or didn't want to see you, is because I think I had two weeks left of filming the mysterious but addic society when I was yeah, I don't want to be like you get tested, like I didn't want to deal with that at night, and I was like, and I always think if I do something fun like see people I love, then I will be punished for it. I will get the COD. That's her mentality. We're going to get punished for this. That's a Christian Um. What tell us about that? Show a little bit of the society. Oh, the mysterious benetic society. You don't know it. Well, it's Um, it's good to see. Plus, it's gonna be filmed season two. Um, you, and you play number two and I play number two. Yeah, we have to tooth. I love this is another character that doesn't have a name. She's number two, like the guy. Tell us about that character a little bit. What's up with number two? Well, number two is Um.

She's a real brainiact. She's trying to sort of save the world. You know what? She's great. She has red hair. Um. So I did dye my hair red, as you can see, as my real color, and I'm going to be dying it back to the very luxurious platinum. For Comic Con. It'll be mass brown again, because I cannot before, I can't sit in a chair and die my hair. It takes forever, takes a long time. Let me get back to about but then I was thinking, Harvey, we're Comic Con, but for me like maybe taking like a chunk of bangs and making it like some fun colors, just like one little chunk. What do you think? I like that, like a like a streak or something. Yeah, and it's like it's my bank, so that it'll as it grows, I'll, you know, I'll cut it and it'll grow out eventually. I like that. What color do you think I want to see? So you're gonna be what did you say? Mousey browns? Yeah, it's gonna be this back to natural Nazi Brown that no hairstylists and La has ever seen this color, like my color guys their hair. And then I was going to take a chunk, a chunk. Oh my God, this is so boring. But the color. Is it blonde or like a blonde? Or we could do like Um, like different colors, like a rainbow. Oh, would be nice. I mean, you know, pride is all year long, so's not just June. So you could be you know, I would love to. I would love thank you for thank you for your part. I appreciate but you know, there is gonna be because we have a lot of you know, comic con is full of events and panels and parties, and there's gonna be a party in what we do in the shadows theme. Um. And also, I was thinking, because you know it's obviously with Naja's bar and nightclub. That's very on brand, I was gonna ask you if the if the guide, had a drink named after her, what would it be and what would be the ingredients of it? Wow, that's okay, and now you're asking me with a witty drink on the spot, like a wit. Actually, no, well, you could go with you go to cocktail or. Well, I mean it would. Yeah, it would. What it would be is it would be Um, it would be oh negative blood, because that's the rarest blood and you would have to have a negative sifter because you know it's hard to get. I'm actually I'm Oh negative. Are Real life and I did give blood last a few months ago through the Red Cross, and now they know that I vote negative and they will not leave me alone. Oh my God. Yeah, I get call and an email like every other day from them. They need my blood again because your your blood, is the most compatible with everyone's right. It actually take negative. But the problem, but it's universal. So it's beautiful. It's beautiful, but I can let's get oh negative blood. I can't get any other blood type transfused into that's not fair to you, any of us. So it's like, I know, can you? Can you take your blood and put it aside for later? I have done that. I had to get a surgery when I was a teenager in Colorado where there wasn't a lot of blood, and before my surgery they made me give my own blood. Well, that's that's smart, because you know, you don't want to be in a sticky situation where the doctors like do we have the blood? And they're like, oh, there's no one around him has own negative. But it's like well, yeah, then I just like, what about that Cherry Jello Pack? I have Jello running through my veins. Okay, so one we're being really open today. Um, I don't remember if I'm gonna say this right, because I hate, I hate the side of blood really so I do. I hate side of blood. Uh, it makes me squeamish whenever I have to Um. You know, even when I gave blood, it was I regretted it the second I put the needle in, but I was like, I'm doing it, he's gonna save a life. You CANNA save a life and and it was just Um, I don't blood is like maybe it's just I don't know. It's funny that I'm on the show that's constantly surrounded blood. So I think half of the time when you see me gagging and character, it's just me. It's just I wonder. I wonder. Do you know what? What why you got that phobia? I think I just since I was little, the idea of blood looks so um traumatizing. I also remember when I was little and it's gonna be okay, I'm gonna be honest with you. See this right here, the scar over my eyebrow. It's a line. I can't...

...really see it. I can see it. It's very sad. It looks like it's very it looks like it's part of my it looks like it's part of my art. So when I touched it, there's a dent right here. Uh So, when I was little, Um and we went to into my ground Mexico, there's a couple of kids who were bullies and, uh and they threw rocks at me and they hit me and I was gushing with blood all over my face and I was running back home and it was like I fell on the floor and I got covered in dirt. So I was covered in blood and dirt. So since that day, I just remember the side of blood, since I covered my face. I was just like traumatized by blood. That is so sad, Harvey. I'm so upset you're bringing that up. Where are those bullies now? Where are they hopefully getting their come uppings? Um, but yeah, that's I had to get stitched right here. Also, when I was little. This is all. You know. What my trips to Mexico don't end well, because it was little and I went to Mexico and I just loved animals and I'm so used to like maybe in America, where people have their dogs on a leash, and that I saw an animal on the street and I was like, Oh, look the dog, and like I literally went to pet it and put my hand and it literally ripped my hand open. You see the scar right there, and let me see it. It's a little bit. But so I haven't. Maybe it's because I've had the traumatizing blood events I was little Um and this is really triggering this juice. You haven't really I'm almost done with mine. You can't do it. It's I can't, I can't. I get mother. I was like, I can't hear myself to drink. Mother looked over. It's really good, she said it's really good. A mother, try it like it like this, like this, she's waving her head. Isn't the apple, the women, the Ginger, the beat that she doesn't like? For me, I was just like it looks like blood. So then that was enough. I didn't look at the ingredients. I'm sure it's delicious. It sounds really good. I'm gonna drink it. I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna drink it. Yeah, I'M gonna I'M gonna conquer my fears and I'm want to drink it. So, well, you didn't, did you finished? Okay, what would be the ingredients to your drink? It's just gonna be oh negative, like when you get a very, very good whiskey. Um, like I wouldn't mix it with anything, I would just put it in my yes, so it's just oh negative blood. If if the the guide had their own drink. So now, if you had a human drink named after the guide, what would that human cocktail be? Wow, well, okay. So for the guide, Um, it would have to be great. Question, like but I think it was like because the guide was just not fun. So they could find drinks, I think. But like, I guess you would. She's at the club, she's been dancing. Yeah, she would have what are those drinks? Um, I think she would be in the Browni. I think she's in the growning. I think she's it's feminine, but it still has like a Mescal Tequila. So there's a smoky, smokey. She's smoky. She's very smoke everywhere smokes around. Yeah, yeah, that's a good one. I didn't even think about that's actually so perfect for the guide. UH, wow, I haven't thought about now that I asked you the question, I didn't think about Ganimos. I feel like it would be a safe drink, but not not anymore. I feel like now he's more adventurous. What would you recommend? Christen? where? We think you said that, like when you said he's a little more adventurous. Now I'm like, yeah, he's in the GELATTO. Oh's like a nice kind but it's a beer. It's now there's a little spicy tachine. There's a little clam juice in the well, I think clamb juice is what they used in Caesar's right, and I love tomato. Yeah, sorry, it's a clamato either. Yeah, but I do love I actually will take a Caesar over bloody maret. I will. I do. I did take a Caesar. I will. We you know you've you've lived in Vancouver filming your show. Have you had a Caesar up there? I think so. They're delicious. You know, I did not go out in Vancouver, remember. That's right. Well, no, for this last round. Oh you, Oh, wait, you're shooting for the second season, which is great. That's actually great. So you missed our opportunity to have an actually really lovely Caesar. It's a Canadian drink and it's delicious and I think, uh, I'll make I'll make that. Guillermo's drink will be at Michel, Michelada Caesar. Can you do that? Can we do that? I think it's the CRAMADO. I think it's...

...like Clomado. Um, okay, so let's up. We're wrapping up the what happened the first two episodes here. How many listeners? It says, stop listening, when about my blood? As soon as you start talking about your blood, time and says I owe you. The ratings are giffing. Listen, why are you asking me to do? These? Are No stars, like, can't you get the British?

Yeah, late. So, yeah, no, we're gonna have a lot of people come from the show, a lot of the actors were having, a lot of the new newvies to join our show, and we're also going to have celebrity guest stars who love the show, who are fans of the show. We're gonna come and talk. I know I'm really excited. I'm really excited. I'm not gonna say yet because I'm super excited. Um, but you have to tune in because you're gonna YOU'RE gonna. Also, you're Christian, you're gonna love the guests. I already I'll tell you. I'll tell you off there because it's a surprise for the guests who are gonna do but before we go, I want to ask you if you had your own group of raiths in life, what would you like have them do? Like I feel like that's kind of like having like several assistance. Why? Like, what would they do? What would what would their jobs be? Oh my God, Wow, I would love that. Okay, cool, okay, first of all, one of them, because we don't would be be rubies and Danny. We don't really have one anymore. And I was loved to have a couple more hours. Goes three school and pretty early. So just started. Wait, what happened? You had the best. She's fantastic. And but Ruby's just goes to school. You know, she needs a full time job. It happens at this age. It gets a little bit so we actually well, I got her a job, a couple in the neighborhood. I'll tell you later. So, UM, okay. So I have raith of be our babysitter whenever we wedded. Off what a comfortable babysitter. That's scary at all. For Ruby be our babysitter. Um, I would love a chef. Um, I mean, you know what, sometimes I would just like a friend. Really got only a friend race, I mean, but I have lots of friends, but they're all busy. Um, they're all busy. That's true. Well, that's like a sign that you hang out with really cool friends, that they're so cool and and and and talented that they don't have time to hang out. And then meanwhile I just get older and older. I'm gonna die todd. But they got my friends were so talented and busy. Um, well, you know what, when a friend texts you at eleven pm, you get out of bed and you come. You're right. You are still right. Are you know what you learned? You learned. I thought I would get you back. I will. I will, San Diego, I will get you back. And San Um you wonder. Can we get a manny petty there? Should we book one? Yeah, I need a Mannie Petty, for sure. I've been keeping nails long. Usually I keep my nose on. For Gye, I don't know, because I give this idea. My backstory with him is that like he doesn't have anything, that he feels protected or that he uses a weapon because he's so insecure in his power and he only cut his nails in the last two seasons because he realized how powerful he was the event help. So when he was just like year, the most season one, he had really long nails and I keep them long for this movie I'm doing right now. UH, it's coming out later, but I'm going to cut them next. I need to cut them after I wrapped, and I wrapped the movie Thursday before Comic Con. So yeah, I'm gonna we should definitely got to I don't know what. Yeah, we'll find out a time. Yeah, well, we're working too the schedule. We could do it while we're doing the panel, so we could be doing the can question. Next question. I'll watch out for the cuticles. Thank you. Thank you. What color? What color are you gonna get, Kristin?...

I just, I just while I was doing this, I did this color as the purple. Oh, that's pretty. Yeah, it's good. So I like this, but I it's gonna but I need, like someone to cut my cuticles and get it like. I need professional hands on hands Um, but I like just too peak because I don't like to like my hair. I don't like to upkeep. So if it's peaking and chip, it's not gonna Bother me as much. That's a nice color, because the aesthetic of that goes with this year's, doesn't it does. That's a good pulture. I'm not on it, but you are. You did come to the photo shoot and there's this at the photo shoot. That's what makes it even sadder. Do you want? Do you want me to? I could cut that picture that I love about you and then I can put it right here. I do guided her place, especially for the few fans that they were like, Oh, we hate the guy. It's okay, it's Okaya. Look like yeah, I know, the people love the guide. Actually, Um, it's people. I remember I went out to the CON. Someone asked if, if you do cons, do you ever do the consent? And you'RE gonna call a con San Diego this weekend, but do you ever do other cons or I'm sure you're busy. I mean you have Ruby, your wife Mom uh an art like so I'm sure your schedule is like you barely have time to hang out with your friends. So I can understand. But would you ever do cons to do meet and greets for like the bomb's Burger fans? So I think it's yeah, once Ruby is a little, a little more like not into me, I'm gonna yeah, I'm out. I got to just enjoy that. She thinks I'm cool right now because it shifts. I hear it will shift. It was shift. Yeah, I don't know. Your cool mom. I've seen you with Ruby. You're cool. I was like, she's remember we went to we went to dinner at that castle and that was so fun and to see someone with a child to take the kid to a castle. I remember it was like this would have been so cool. I remember if I was little and I went to a castle. WHO GETS TO GO TO CASTLE? Like that's so cool. And Boma and she was like just skipping around in all the rooms. Fun, we're gonna have fun, we're gonna go back, we're gonna do it all. And we had dinner. We had dinner with with Fred, Fred armison. We had dinner with him. And, yeah, and that's already be announced. Yeah, that's where he announced that he's coming and joining the season. Wait, yeah, I think that Fred has been announced as coming to be in a future episode of what we did in the shadows for, sorry, season four. Yeah, okay, I thought that you were telling me that it's announced that he's coming for a season five. No, no, but we'll double check this fact and see, because I saw an interview where Paul had mentioned, talking about it like crazy at that for your consideration. So I think it's fine. Yeah, so I think. I think it's fine. We're so cautious about releasing whose guest starring this season until the right time because you know, we want to keep it a surprised. I can't look just like we're gonna can't remember. I can't remember who's on the show. Actually, you had dinner with us. We were into a restaurant. Yeah, right, you don't. You don't remember. We were at Casteloma having dinner. Fred was there, you were there, husband there, he was there. We were in that we were in that room where one side of the room had prince like a big mural defense, and then the other side of the room had Um Queen Elizabeth. Well, right, no, but I can't remember who. Remember that dinner. I can't remember who the other guests act. See them for well, proadcast some of them. We didn't have scenes with guest stars that we didn't interact with, like we knew that. And it's really good. It is. And Uh, and and you'll have to tune in to find out, because there might be a guest on this show. Um, but before we go, Christian, what do you want for the wraith? I wait for the raith. What do you want for the Guide and the raiths going forward? What would be a storyline that you would love, maybe in the future, of our future, near future, but that you would love to see? Who I think I...

...mean? It would be fun to see the UM, the guide, get revenge on someone who's done her wrong and to use the wraiths Um to do that to get revenge and justice. Um, that might be fun, but I'll and then she gets she gets a spinoff where she fights crime with her raids. Yeah, that'd be good. Um, it would be fun maybe to see her like try to be a movie star, you know, because she's still barely understand her like it would be fun to see her like audition and be like I'm going to I'm going to go for my dream. But like in her whole deal. I like that. I like it. Did she did she dabbing that, like in the forties, she went up against like Veronica Lake, like I could see the guy with her finger wave like Veronica Lake and going out for auditions against her and then dabbing and acting and then going back into it. Like she's like, I tried it in the forties. She like auditioned for the notebook. Yeahs auditions. She's like why is that? Wait, wait, wait, wait, you have a call back and it's with Ryan Goslin and it's that scene and and you and this is your final callback. And and and he just goes, what do you want? Huh? What is it? What do you want? And the guy? What would they respond? I don't remember the lines for the what did she say? But it would they say what they would say. Feel free to improvise. What do you want? How do you want me? Do you want to be with me? What do you want? I don't that was too good. That's you. You booked Chris under the actor play. I think that'd be great. I love it. Well, Kristen, thank you so much for joining us. It's always so fun. I'm excited for everyone to see your trajectory this season with your costumes, the character and like I'm just excited for I want to see it.

I'll see you in San Diego Um and if you're not there. I will see you in my heart and thank you. Thank you for loving the show. This show is an absolute pleasure, Um, to be associated with. I I think this every day that I get to work on the show. Is that being on a show that's working, that's funny, that's creative, that's the real that's got everybody bringing their gifts. Um, mostly working on a show that's actually funny. Um, doesn't happen very often. Um, it really is rare. So it feels, Um, I feel very fortunate.
