Last fall, I was invited on an press junket to visit the set of Sony Playstation’s POWERS in Atlanta. When I arrived, I was immediately struck by a few things: (1) I still miss Retro Girl! (2) Susan Heyward is a sweetheart, but while watching her film as her character of Deena Pilgrim with such intensity, the thought “I would never mess with her” did go through my mind; and (3) Justice Leak is so fun and entertaining that a day at an amusement park would be boring compared to a day of hanging out with him.
In hope of capturing some of the infectious joy of visiting the POWERS set that day, here are some fun behind-the-scenes photos of my day playing in their world:
“Wishing I could live in Christian Walker’s apartment”
“Emma and I are hard at work on the POWERS set. No bad guys are safe!”
“I wish working on the POWERS set was my full-time job!”
“I could never work in the POWERS props department.”
“Christine went out after getting some special attention in the make-up department — and people were actually afraid to look at her!”
“How about a kiss, handsome?”
“Christine is ready for a night on the town!”
“No one can save Emma from me now! Mawaahhhaaaa!!!”
“Another hard working day on the POWERS set.”
“Emma and I are planning our escape.”
“Welcome to my city!”
At the end of the day, the one thought I had was: I hope I get to come back and play again one day! But what I learned was: it must be incredible to work on such a cool set every day and the actors, writers, directors and crew are very lucky.
It was a privilege and pleasure to be invited into the POWERS world, even for just a day. Grateful to @theSeries #POWERSonPS
