Interview by Rafy Mediavilla w/ Hulu’s Series “Maggie” / Kerri Kenney-Silver (Maria) & Ray Ford (Angel). Where we spoke about dealing with a psychic daughter, and Angel as the perfect best friend. Out July 6! #MaggieOnHulu

Dating is hard enough – it’s even harder when you also happen to be a psychic. Maggie’s gift allows her to see into the future of her friends, parents, clients, and random people on the street. But when she begins to see glimpses of her own destiny after meeting an unexpected stranger, her romantic life suddenly gets a lot more complicated. Can you let yourself fall in love when you think you know how it ends? She probably should have seen this coming…


Criticólogos:

Let’s talk about Maggie as your daughter. How would you approach in real life the situation that your daughter can know what you do in the future and you’re kind of getting something. You’re planning something and she knows. How would you handle that? How would you tell the hey, don’t tell dad?

Kerri Kenney-Silver:

Oh, my God. That’s so multilayered. Well, I would say that Maggie, our Maria operates very much like I do in real life as a mother of a child who is not a psychic. So operating generally from a place of fear because you want everything that’s great for your child and nothing that’s bad, even though life is all of it. I think the psychic element is just one more layer to add complication. But I think every child, every mother, mother, son, mother, child relationship has these multilayer things and there’s always something. 

So in this case, that’s something is that she’s a psychic. So I think some of it is comforting to Maria because she thinks that her daughters are on a bit of a higher plane, in a sense, and she’s often asking her what’s going to happen and is everything going to be okay? But then there’s another part of it where she doesn’t trust her daughter to wear her hair the right way and that, you know, that might make her unattractive to suitors in the future. So, you know. 

Criticólogos:

Where do I signed up to get a best friend like Angel and that he’s also a psychic?

Ray Ford:

I will do it. I am your guy. I will do it for you. I’m there for you, man, you know.

Criticólogos:

Okay, so let’s play make believe here, you be Angel and tell me, what do you see in my future? 

Ray Ford:

I see. Oh, I see a beach I see a beach with great love. And there’s a sunset and there’s a yacht sailing into the photo. And wealth and happiness. 

Kerri Kenney-Silver:

Sounds like you’re going to be on a reality show. 

Criticólogos:

Let’s talk about Angel. I mean, I love what you did. How much of the character is you or I know, how much of is you just follow in the script? Because it seemed that you had a lot of fun with the character. 

Ray Ford:

I think I mean, it’s inspired, obviously, by the words that the writers put down, but it’s coming from my heart, right? It’s coming from my imagination. I didn’t have to do a whole lot to get ready to play Angel. It feels a lot like my life. I’m not a psychic, but just those kinds of relationships. I really, I really understood. 

Criticólogos:

That the cast is so amazing, but at the same time, so diverse and so multicultural. What does it mean to you guys that that Hollywood is finally moving in this direction?

Maggie — “Things Begin Where They End” – Episode 101 — Maggie is a romantic comedy about a psychic struggling with her own future, despite her ability to read into everyone else’s. Disheartened with relationships and always foreseeing how things end, Maggie’s life is forever changed when she has a prediction she didn’t see coming. Maria (Kerri Kenney), shown.

Kerri Kenney-Silver:

I think it’s about damn time is what I think. I also feel grateful to be brought along for the ride as an aging woman. Often we’re just the sort of comic relief or, you know, the the side show. And so it feels really good to be part of such a beautiful, diverse group of mega talented people. 

Ray Ford:

Yeah. Agreed, agreed. And you know, one thing I love about this show is it feels effortless. Yeah, right. It doesn’t feel like anyone was trying to be multicultural or be diverse. It just because life looks like this sometimes. Right? And that’s what we’re representing. And it feels very true and real to me. 

Criticólogos:

What you want people to take away from the series once they see it? 

Kerri Kenney-Silver:

I want people to take away hopefully they can see part of themselves in this show. Hopefully. You know, really selfishly, I’m hoping people take a look at their mothers and say, okay, she means well, I see that and maybe we can laugh about it. I’m speaking directly to my son. I see you. I hear you. I hope you’re watching this. And I hope people, you know, find joy and accept that, you know, being different is is a beautiful thing. 

Ray Ford:

I really hope that people walk away with a sense of what it means to have unlimited potential, to have possibility to have the world be your oyster.
