Note from the editor: I have included interviews under exclusive if they are private or one-on-one or in person interviews. These were not part of press conference calls or group discussions. These are exclusives that are currently published here at SciFi Vision or as part of one of SciFi Vision's own podcasts, or in some early cases at Media Blvd. Magazine.

I also have chosen to include some interviews from press events that are only open to a select few and not the general press or public, such as convention press rooms and everything from the Syfy Digital Press Tours, set tours, etc. as although they are not entirely exclusive, they do contain exclusive photos and sometimes videos that no other site has (I have started to mark some of these as "Spotlight" as opposed to "Exclusive, but they still remain in this category"), or may be about my own experiences only at the events. Note that in a few specific cases, the set tours were exclusive and specifically for SciFi Vision.

All of the articles unless otherwise noted were written by me, Jamie Ruby, and are copyright © 2017 Sci-Fi Vision. If you would like to post an article on your own site, please let us know first. Please do not use any of the exclusive photos or videos on your own site without permission (it will usually be given).

Hulu 2021 Summer TCA Press Tour Panel Interview: Nine Perfect Strangers

HuluAugust 18th, Hulu premieres the first three episodes of its new and original limited series, Nine Perfect Strangers. The series, based on the book of the same name by Liane Moriarty, takes places a health-and-wellness resort and tells the story of nine strangers who come for a ten-day retreat, hoping to be healed and transformed but meet the mysterious resort director, Masha (Nicole Kidman), and may get more than they bargained for.

Recently, cast members Melissa McCarthy, Bobby Cannavale, Regina Hall, and Kidman, who also serves as an executive producer on the project, as well as executive producers David E. Kelley, Bruna Papandrea, Per Saari, and Jonathan Levine talked to the media during a panel as part of the TCAs.

Two of the cast members talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision about what it was like laying in a grave during a scene when the characters were told by Masha to confront their mortality. Cannavale thought that it was a good exercise. “It’s certainly confronting.  I mean, I know just speaking for myself, I think what she tells us to visualize is a pretty unorthodox method.  But I don't know, in thinking about it, it’s pretty effective.  I know for myself, I definitely try to think about all the things that she asks us to think about, and when you're surrounded like that by all that dirt, it’s extremely confronting.

“I will tell you that whenever we cut camera, every single person got out of those holes pretty quickly.  We didn't like, hang out.  Nobody brought me water in the hole.  So, I think as a method, it’s not one I would have thought of and yet, I think it’s pretty confronting.  That's all I can say, yeah.”
