Interview: “Imagine the Excel Spreadsheets”: ‘THR Presents’ Q&A With the Sprawling Cast of ‘Ghosts’

Nine members of one of TV’s largest comedic ensembles — Rose McIver, Sheila Carrasco, Devan Chandler, Asher Grodman, Richie Moriarty, Danielle Pinnock , Brandon Scott Jones, Rebecca Wisocky and Román Zaragoza — discuss the near-infinite scenepartner pairings on their CBS sitcom, “Ghosts“.

There is no shortage of potential shared storylines on “Ghosts“, as evidenced by a recent THR Presents panel, powered by Vision Media, with much of the cast — where the Zoom screen was more crowded than the opening panel of The Brady Bunch.

The complete spectral roster — Sheila Carrasco (Flower), Devan Chandler (Thorfin), Asher Grodman (Trevor), Richie Moriarty (Pete), Danielle Pinnock (Alberta), Brandon Scott Jones (Isaac), Rebecca Wisocky (Hetty) and Román Zaragoza (Sasappis) — was joined by their living counterpart, Rose McIver (Sam), who noted that even after two seasons, the possible scene partners still seem limitless. “I can’t imagine the excel spreadsheets that are going on in the writers room,” says McIver. “There are individuals here who I haven’t had a one-on-one scene with. It’s a blessing to have ten people in our cast. You can just keep reinventing things and discovering new pairings.”

When discussing dream parings, the conversation naturally turned Carrasco and Wiscocky, whose characters were paired off as unlikely roommates in the recent season two finale. “They’re a naturally ridiculous pairing, which our show does so well,” says Wisocky. “There are so many unlikely bedfellows.”

Other cast members seem eager to get into their deceased characters’ backstories, including Carrasco — who plays the cult-member hippie who met her end being mauled by the bear she was trying to hug. “I think people who get attracted to cults usually are leaving the kind of opposite situation,” she says. “There’s so much to unpack and uncover. I’d love to meet her brother, who’s 75 or 80 now, and have him be played by Edward James Olmos.”

As for Pinnock, she’s waiting to see what comes next after wrapping the season-long arc which finally revealed who killed her Prohibition-era lounge singer at a 1920s party. “The writers have given me such a delicious opportunity this season for this character,” says Pinnock. “She could have easily been stereotypical, the person who has one-liners and sings and dances. They’ve given her depth. I loved the murder mystery. It was fabulous.”

My name is Stéphanie - creator, webmaster and social medias manager of The Rose McIver Fansite (known as Rose McIver Source). I have been a french fan of Rose since a decade. Way back in 2013, I noticed there were no French or English website supporting her projects or promoting her amazing work – that's why I decided to create this fansite, in English to reach a larger audience. I started following Rose in my early twenties, here I am in my thirties, even more enthusiastic to share everything related to her career.​ I had the opportunity to meet Rose three times. In May 2017, at the 'Fairy Tales 5' con in Paris. In February 2020, virtually during "Empire's Virtual Hangout 4". In May 2023, I went to Germany to meet Rose again.
