American Gods FYC Panel! Meeting Ricky Whittle! Crispin Glover! Orlando Jones! Emily Browning! Pablo Schreiber! And More!

American Gods is showing it’s finale tonight and I have to tell you, I love the series.

I attended an FYC panel with Lisa, Scott and Billy and had a blast. It was such an amazing night and I thought tonight was the perfect time to talk about it!

Attending the panel were:

Bryan Fuller, executive producer

Michael Green, executive producer

Cast including

Ricky Whittle

Emily Browning

Pablo Schreiber

Yetide Badaki

Crispin Glover

Bruce Langley

Orlando Jones

Sadly Ian McShane couldn’t attend, which was a bummer.

It’s safe to say, I have never seen anything like American Gods, and it blew me away! I had never read the book, like a lot of people and the panel addressed it.

“Come in immediately and we will take care of you. It will be a weird ride.” Said Bryan Fuller. “Religion is a weird ride. We will take care of you.”

“I think I’m the perfect advertisement for this. I hadn’t read American Gods, but I started reading the book and when I read the scripts I couldn’t stop. When I saw the first episode we were able to binge watch like four episodes that were finished.” Laughed Ricky Whittle. “It’s an incredible story that is such a blessing to be a part of the best ensemble cast I’ve seen on screen.”

Some characters were expanded from the book like Emily Browning’s role.

“My character only existed in relation to Shadow. From what we’ve seen she does some morally questionably things and I think it’s important for her as a character when we see more we empathize as well.” Stated Emily Browning. “She’s unapologetic. Living in that place between good and bad.”

American Gods is genre programming and the sci-fi audience is so entrenched and passionate it’s great to see.

“We don’t spoon feed our audience. The Sci-fi audience is the most intelligent audience out there.” Said Ricky Whittle. “It comes with a great pressure though. For 16 years fans have been waiting for this and the passion keeps building up on this monster. It’s a hunger.”

“For all of us to have the stamp of approval of Neil has been a blessing.” Said Pablo. “He came to SDCC and SXSW, he’s so happy and it’s such a pleasure for him to see it being brought to the world.”
