To celebrate the release of Julie & The Phantoms, Netflix’s newest original series, we chatted with the show’s eclectic cast to chat about the show.
High schooler Julie (Madison Reyes) lost her passion for music after her mom died last year. But when the ghosts of three dreamy musicians (Charlie Gillespie, Owen Patrick Joyner, Jeremy Shada) from 1995 suddenly appear in her mom’s old music studio, Julie feels her own inner spirit beginning to reawaken, and she’s inspired to start singing and writing songs again. As their friendship with Julie grows, the boys convince her to create a new band together: Julie and the Phantoms.
Speaking about the show and its impact over its “opening weekend”, Reyes, Joyner, Gillespie, and Shada share their excitement that the series has struck a chord with audiences already, the power of social media and the immediate creation of memes and how the show’s storylines of loss, family and the power of music something we can all relate to.
