‘Pose’ was eight days into filming of its third season when the pandemic caused for an abrupt halt.
Now, at a time when the groundbreaking ballroom hit was meant to be on air, details are emerging about the behind the scenes happenings at the FX series.
Full story below…
In an interview with Variety, Indya Moore, who plays Angel Evangelista, shared:
“When production paused, I wasn’t shocked—I knew it would happen—but it was a bittersweet moment for me. On the one hand, if anyone had gotten sick, it surely would have spread fast. On the other hand, most folks working on a production are living paycheck to paycheck. So I was worried about how they are going to survive.
[We’ll be okay, though] The ‘Pose’ family is hanging in there, trying to take care of ourselves.”
The show’s co-creator Steven Canals went on to reveal that changes are on the horizon when production resumes. He told Variety:
“Things like kissing—we will likely forgo those moments. The place on our show where the biggest impact will be felt will be the ball scenes: Those scenes have 125 to 150 background actors. That’s tricky, because that’s such an important and critical part of our show and the narrative. We’re just, only now, having conversations of ‘Is there a world where we forgo these things?’”
Their words come as lead MJ Rodriguez, who plays Blanca Evangelista, lost both her grandmother and aunt to the global health crisis.
Our thoughts are with the cast.
We patiently (and excitedly) await the return of this trailblazing show.
