Actress deems reaction to CBS series ‘really great’
Q: Has “God Friended Me” had a personal impact on you?
A: I was raised Quaker, and I went to meetings every Sunday for most of my childhood. I kind of stopped going when I left the house, but since moving to New York (for the series), I actually live reasonably close to a Quaker meeting. And I’m thinking about going again, which I don’t think I ever would have paid attention to until later in my life.
Q: You have a fan base from other projects as well, including “The Flash.” What has their reaction to “God Friended Me” been?
A: Honestly, it’s been really, really great feedback. I think our show makes (the theme) available to everyone. Young, old … it doesn’t matter. A lot of my fans, which happen to be a younger crowd of people, are like, “Wow, I didn’t know about the show. This is really cool.” They’ve started watching with their families.
People are messaging me all the time and saying (things like), “My daughter is in a hospital and she watches this, and it lifts her up. And then, she talks to her friends that are in the hospital (about it).” It’s amazing, the amount of feedback that we are getting like that.
