For me specifically, I guess I was focusing more on what Moe is going through and having a single mother who is constantly working and what that looks like for a teen. Charles is a writer, a tutor and a believer in the phrase that Content is King (or Queen). In "News Flash," tonight's episode of The Flash, Kiana Madeira will make her debut as Spencer "Spin" Young.Set to recur, Spin hopes to become famous by being the first to report the biggest news in Central City -- even if by nefarious means. I know people say that all the time, but this just felt different and that really translated when we got to set and started working in the scenes together, I felt like there was a groundedness to ourselves as individuals and to our characters, that were really given the space to explore and sit in and with which to play, so chemistry is not something which I often think about when approaching a role, it’s something that as actors, we hope is just there. So that is so special in itself and very groundbreaking, the fact that we deal with LGBTQ content and we also deal with abusive relationships, which we don’t often see in high school shows, and I thought that was really different. The rest of the day consists of filming, laughing, occasional naps, a lunch break, and back to more acting! I downloaded the entire first season soundtrack after watching it and it’s cool because when we’re filming, we don’t know what the songs behind it are going to be. My favorite bible verse is 2 Timothy 1:7, and it says, “For God did not give us a spirit of fear and timidity, but one of power, love, and self-discipline.” This reminds me that we are not meant to harbor fear. A typical day on set is 12 hours long and honestly, there is no place I’d rather be. KM: Thank you, first of all, thank you. BT: What do you tend to lean into thematically in terms of this series? We need to lead with love, in all things. I have actually been in a lot of projects that are based off of books and this one was so important to me as well, like you said, we really took the foundation of the book and ran with it. Later, she took her love for pop culture with her to college, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts from Suffolk University and a Masters Degree in Literature from University of Massachusetts Boston. Being 16 years old and in a way, kind of parenting yourself, because there were times in which Moe’s mom was working all day and all night and Moe’s just kind of left to her devices and that often could lead to trouble, but at the same time, Moe really succeeded in an academic way and I like that viewers can watch that and think that just because you find yourself in a situation like that, you really can rise above it. With everything going, what important message would you like to get out to the world right now? If I could take anything from the set, it would be Moe’s cool, bedazzled bike, that thing was so awesome, I wish I got to take that.
