Comic Con Stockholm: Interview with Ricky Whittle


Last Saturday at Comic Con Stockholm, I had the pleasure of talking with Ricky Whittle about his new show American Gods.

Whittle is most known for his roles as Daniel in Mistresses and Lincoln in The 100. In 2017, he will be starring as the lead character, Shadow Moon, in American Gods. American Gods is the TV adaptation of the novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman and produced by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. With an amazing cast (Ian McShane, Pablo Schreiber, Emily Browning, Kristin Chenoweth, Gillian Anderson, Yetide Badaki…) and a great production team, the show is poised to be huge success on Starz. During Comic Con Stockholm, Whittle revealed that the full trailer for the show would be released in January 2017.

I had the chance to sit down with him for few moments to talk more about the show. As you will see, Ricky is one of the nicest and funniest people I have ever met. He was 100% all weekend with the fans, and his enthusiasm and good mood was definitely contagious. We talked about Shadow Moon and how the novel will be adapted for television. For example, some characters like Mad Sweeney or Bilquis who do not appear very often in the book will have additional storylines. He also shared some behind-the-scenes moments with Kristin Chenoweth and Orlando Jones. His respect and admiration for the cast and crew of the show is heartwarming to hear and made me really pumped for the show.
