On NETFLIX, Kausar Mohammed also appears as one of the top stars in the hit animated series Jurassic World: CAMP CRETACEOUS, as well as as a top star on THE FLASH. The show features the character of Dr. Meena Dhawan, or Fast Track, who has a moral compass. Her character is referred to as a titan in the scientific community. The character eventually realizes that she possesses the ability to travel at a super fast pace, a power that is granted to the entire population.
The actress is currently starring in the hit TV series The Flash, and she can be seen on the show throughout the year.
In addition, Kausar’s character Yaz will be appearing in Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, which airs on July 21st. It focuses on a group of teenagers who are stranded on the island of Isla Dublar after a dinosaur escapes from its habitat and the group becomes stranded. To name a few of the cast members, it also features Sean Giambrone, Jenna Ortega, Ryan Potter, and many others.
During the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Kausar wrote, directed, and starred in the holiday romantic comedy The Syed Family XMAS Even Game Night. As part of the family’s annual game night, which happens to fall on Christmas Eve, Noor, a Queer Pakistani Muslim woman, brings home her Puerto Rican girlfriend for the first time. Throughout the short film, themes of sisterhood, belonging, and breaking tradition are explored. As Muslim women and non-binary people are underrepresented in popular films, this short is a landmark for them.
In this exclusive interview, we catch up with Kausar about her role on The Flash, voice acting, and much more!
New York City was lit up in style at the rooftop party hosted by STARZ in conjunction with Power Book III: Raising Kanan.
The party had a red carpet arrival for the stars that were in attendance such as Patina Miller, MeKai Curtis, Joey Bada$$, Antonio Ortiz, Malcom Mays, Omar Epps, London Brown, and Shanley Caswell.
Also in attendance, were Wu-Tang: An American Saga stars Johnell Xavier Young and TJ Atoms, The Wire star Wendell Pierce, Hip Hop legend The Roxanne Shante, and much more that came out to celebrate the second season of Raising Kanan.
There was more to the event than just the stars. It also served as a mini-activation site in which you can have a photo opp at a location of late 80’s-early 90’s televisions with the Raising Kanan branding on the screens. There were also cocktails themed from the show, a billiards table where you can actually play against your friends or a cast member, and a good reception area. All to make the evening as engaging as possible. To top it all off, there was a DJ there that played and spin a large number of 90’s hip-hop music.
Power Book III: Raising Kanan returns for its second season on August 14 on STARZ.
Exclusive: Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power stars Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, and Cynthia Robinson at EW’s Comic Con Bash
The annual Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con closing-night bash that takes place at Float at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego is a tradition where everyone gathers together to celebrate the end of Comic-Con. Seeing as this was the first EW Comic-Con party since 2019, the stars – including Simu Liu and Aisha Tyler – were ready to have a good time! However, the stars of Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power were also there.
In September 20, 2022, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will be launched globally on Prime Video as an epic and ambitious retelling of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fabled Second Age of Middle-earth, based on Tolkien’s fabled novels.
It is the first time that the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history are being brought to the screen for the very first time in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. The events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings are set thousands of years before the events of this epic drama.
Hours after the cast took the stage at Hall H during Comic Con week to promote the series, we got a chance to catch up with Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, and Cynthia Robinson. It was their first Comic Con and they were thrilled to be there and to see the awesome cosplay. Check out our exclusive interview with the three stars!
Jean Elie and Michael Guayo created the show Send Help which will premiere on ALLBLK on August 11th.
On July 27th I attended the highly anticipated World Premiere of HBO’s House of the Dragon at the Academy of Motion Pictures Museum. The cast was glowing with excitement as they walked the carpet taking pictures.
Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” the series, set 200 years before the events of “Game of Thrones,” tells the story of House Targaryen. The world of Game of Thrones is vast and rich with detail. This new series does an excellent job at capturing a specific moment in Targaryen history. A cohesive theme that actors and crew members touched on was that the House of the Dragon is a family drama.
“I wanted to make sure we stayed faithful to the original show,” Miguel Sapochnik (Director/Showrunner) says during our interview. “But that we seeded the opportunity to grow and evolve out of the original show,” Sapochnik goes on to say. Composer Ramin Djawadi adds “I was really excited to get back into that world. I worked on the original for years and when they sent me the first episode, seeing the visuals I immediately got excited.”
Actors of the series spoke to me about what they learned about themselves in their craft while filming. You can watch my full interview with both the cast and crew here.
The premiere screening was followed by an after party above the theater. Series themed cocktails were served along with appetizers and a large graze board. Attendees enjoyed music and mingled with the House of Dragons cast.
House of the Dragon is available to stream on HBOMax starting August 21st 2022.
It’s been two years and it’s a new dawn at Pierpoint and Co. There’s been a global pandemic and our graduates are no longer new but are still struggling to make their way in the competitive world of banking and investments. Industry, Succession’s more serious younger cousin and companion show of sorts, comes back to our screens today and we couldn’t be more excited. The show, written and created by Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, is a sexy and edgy, yet realistic look at classism and power dynamics in the workplace. This season Harper (Myha’la Herrold), Yasmin (Marisa Abela), Rob (Harry Lawtey), and Gus (David Jonsson) are back and facing new challenges and old distractions as they grapple with where their careers are headed now that they have permanent positions at Pierpoint. We also meet new characters, Celeste (Katrine de Candole), Venetia (Indy Lewis), and Danny (Alex Akpobome), and are reacquainted with familiar faces like Eric (Ken Leung), Felim (Andrew Buchan), and Rishi (Sagar Radia). What ensues this season is more of the twisted relationships we hated to love and the backstabbing in business we loved to hate.
I got the opportunity to speak with the main cast members Myha’la, Marisa, David, and Harry and we spoke about new hair choices, the show’s relationship with drugs, being a woman in a male-dominated field, and what it means to earn your spot versus being given it. Watch the full SPOILER FREE interview on YouTube.
Industry premieres August 1st at 9 pm on HBO and HBO Max. New episodes release each week.
Two years have passed, but tonight we are finally getting a new season of HBO’s Industry. The show, created and written by Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, followed a group of young graduates as they vied for a spot at a prestigious bank in London, Pierpont. Much like its sister show, Succession, Industry deals with business, sex, money, drugs, and everything that comes with the territory at working at a major company. This season, the show has expanded to include a new cast of characters, to join our main cast, who are no longer graduates, but full-time employees at Pierpoint. We meet Celeste (Katrine de Candole) one of the show’s few female execs who takes a liking to Yasmin, Venetia (Indy Lewis) a new graduate at Pierpoint not afraid to challenge the status quo, and Danny aka DVD (Alex Akpobome), an employee from the New York office here to make changes at Pierpoint London, although no one really understands his true intentions.
I got the opportunity to speak with newcomers Katrine, Indy, and Alex, as well as creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, and writing executive producer Jami O’Brien ahead of the premiere and they gave me the dish on how these new characters are shaking things up, what it was like to join the cast this season, what to make of the dynamic between Harper and Eric, and what it means to earn your spot versus being given it. Watch the full SPOILER FREE interview on YouTube.
Industry premieres August 1st at 9 pm on HBO and HBO Max. New episodes release each week.
Exclusive: William Jackson Harper, Nina Bloomgarden, Cristin Milioti and Cast Talk New Series “The Resort”
Elements of nostalgia are brought to life within a sinister mystery that unflolds on a young couple’s vacation through the mind of creator Andy Sierra, in his newest show, Peacock’s The Resort. Taking place throughout multiple different generations at the same resort, the main focus of the story falls onto Emma (Cristin Milioti) and Noah (William Jackson Harper). We learn about their marriage and the problems that arise with their difference in passions, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Before long, the trip turns to disaster when the couple finds themselves embroiled in one of the Yucatan’s most bizarre unsolved mysteries that took place fifteen years prior. It’s a story about people, about relationships and humanity, and the thriller element only adds to the excitement. “The Resort is about a lot of things.” Sierra said. “There are big swings, and little swings. It’s
someone looking back on their life and trying to remember the good times, mixed with a5-year-old playing with toys in the backyard. It never takes itself too seriously, but sometimes it gets pretty serious. I guess, at its core, it’s about people who want to go back to a time in life
when things seemed a bit easier, before the hard parts of life keep piling up. It’s about people who are trying to recapture that feeling of home. And within that, there’s a big mystery.”
We had the chance to sit down with Andy and the brilliant cast of The Resort! Check it out below!
