Who isn’t completely stoked for the second season of The Umbrella Academy on Netflix? The live-action series based on Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba‘s acclaimed graphic novel is the must-see show of the summer. That’s why we dedicated our next issue to the program and the people on both sides of the cameras that make it happen.
AltPress Editor In Chief Paige Owens got an audience with some of the cast members of TUA prior to the show’s season debut. The trio of actors revealed whose roles in TUA they would like to try on for awhile. In this video, Ellen Page (Vanya Hargreeves, Number Seven), Tom Hopper (Luther Hargreeves, Number One) and Emmy Raver-Lampman (Allison Hargreeves, Number Three) shared their thoughts on what they liked about the other characters.
It’s an interesting question, for sure. Owens cites how the series’ characters are rapidly evolving and how they’d feel switching roles. We’ll give you half a spoiler: Page and Raver-Lampman agree on the same role. Hooper admits he goes back and forth with his personal favorites. He picks two entirely different ones for some very interesting reasons. The conversation is filled with some great insight regarding the show’s resonance.
Unbelievable action sequences! Role envy! Exclusive access to the dead! No, we’re not talking about an episode of Holey Moley. It’s all part of AltPress’ exclusive coverage of The Umbrella Academy, Season Two. It premieres Friday, July 31 on Netflix. We heard a rumor that you and everyone you know will be streaming something that night…
