Make sure to tune in to the winter finale Ravenswood, TOMORROW, Tuesday, February 4th @ 9:00PM ET/PT on ABC Family!
How does Miranda handle Hanna showing up in Ravenswood?
Nicole: “Well, see Hanna shows up by surprising everyone, so it definitely takes Caleb and Miranda off guard for sure. But she’s very respectful of what they’ve shared together, and she really likes Hanna. I mean Hanna was so helpful and supportive of her journey to Ravenswood and having Caleb stay out there with her. So she definitely allows for them to talk things through, but she’s definitely heartbroken for sure.”
What are your hopes for Miranda in the second season?
Nicole: “I would like to see maybe more of her connecting with her uncle again, maybe he’ll be able to start seeing her. And then maybe something like, I don’t know, a ghost companion.”
How do you interact with other actors who aren’t able to see Miranda’s ghost?
Nicole: “I think my biggest challenge playing a ghost has just been not being able to touch anything. As an actor you want to fill the scene with movement — like if you’re walking through a kitchen you go into the cupboard and get a glass of water and you fill it up, and it keeps a realness to the scene and a realness to your character. But as a ghost I can’t touch anything, I can’t play with anything, and if I sit down on a couch it can’t sink underneath me because ghosts can’t transfer energy in that way. So I think that for me is it’s been a challenge for me being able to feel comfortable within a scene. Then as far as all of the sneaking up on people, especially with Steven, who plays Uncle Collins, we’ve just had fun with it. I’m just always like, “I’m just always snooping on you.” So, yes, that part of it I think is fun. I also get to watch really cool scenes! There was one between Uncle Collins and Mrs. Matheson in the police station, I think it was in the last episode, and it was just a beautiful, well-played scene. Being able to watch them as two actors connecting that way — I just had to stand there and watch them do their thing. So, yes, it’s fun!”
What is your favorite part about filming Ravenswood?
Nicole: “Probably just working with the cast! We have so much fun. Brett is hilarious; anything that he just says, anything that comes out of his mouth I’m immediately laughing. I had a lot of fun getting to know Merritt, and we hung out a lot off set and it was really nice to have a gal pal in New Orleans. So, yes, I think getting to know the cast this first season has been a lot of fun.”
Is there any hope for your ghost character to ever have a physical connection?
Nicole: “I think that the huge cliffhanger at the season finale will definitely leave that window of opportunity open for Miranda. There’s definitely a huge cliffhanger at the end of the season; it’s literally the last scene of the episode where Miranda could have a ghost companion. So you will see!”
Has anyone ever considered what could happen to Miranda if they do break the curse?
Nicole: “Yes, definitely. It’s all discussed during this huge showdown between the kids of the pack and Abaddon in the season finale. There’s this huge battle between them, and there are a lot of questions that are answered as far as Miranda being able to come back to life or staying dead. It’s all brought to the surface during this whole battle.”
Do you think the gang should be thinking about ways to bring Miranda back before they do anything drastic?
Nicole: “I don’t think they’ve really thought of it as a possibility up until the showdown. I think Miranda’s finally coming to terms with being a ghost and being content. Well, not content, but just more accepting of her situation. I don’t think they’ve really thought whether or not to be able to bring her back.”
What do you think is going to happen with Mr. Collins’?
Nicole: “I think Steven does such a great job at confusing people! His true colors finally show in this upcoming episode and during the season finale, which I think will be very exciting for fans to see.”
If you could play any other character on Ravenswood, who would it be?
Nicole: “I would probably want to be Remy. I think she’s a really smart and quirky character. Her sleeping nightmares have been a really cool aspect to her storyline as well.”
