When Queen Street star Ethan Hutchison learned he was auditioning for one of his favorite series, Disney’s Channel The Secret of the Sulfur Spring, he couldn’t stop smiling.
“When I told you I loved the show before I auditioned, I meant it,” Hutchinson excitedly told TVLine. “The show is so well done, I’m just happy to wait for the next episodes. I love genre and time travel. Fun Fact: I’m Actually Filming Queen Street when i got the audition. “
Hutchison has clearly made an impression because he’ll be playing Harper’s awesome grandfather Sam when Season 2 of the beloved sci-fi series hits theaters this Friday at 8/7. Harper, who is played by Kyliegh Curran, won’t officially meet Sam Tremont in the season opener, but she did run into him and learned more about her overalls-wearing ancestor when she, Griffin (( Preston Oliver) and Savannah (Strange things‘Elle Graham) travels back to 1930.
Curran said, “I’ve heard of Queen Street and knowing Ethan was up there, I said, ‘This kid is going to be unbelievable. And when his dad told me he was a big fan, I said, ‘Oh my gosh! It’s correct!’ I was very proud. Ethan is an absolutely talented actor and I’m so happy that audiences get to see Concussions, because we fire.
“Mr. Robert Manning Jr plays Daisy’s Pa and Harper’s grandfather Elijah, and we all had so much fun working together,” the teen actress added. “Finding out about Harper’s family is a really big deal because we don’t know much about them, because of what happened to her father. At the end of the season, fans will say, ‘That’s amazing!’ “
As an added bonus, Curran in Season 2 will also play a descendant of Sam and his sister Daisy, who is Harper’s grandmother. The show will also delve into the racism that blacks in America have experienced, particularly in Louisiana, where the teen drama was filmed and took place. Curran and Hutchison say uncovering this heartbreaking chapter in the nation’s history is both inspiring and heartbreaking.
“I definitely learned about the negative and positive things that happened during that time,” revealed Hutchison. “It was an interesting experience going back to how someone my age looked like I had to survive and live in those days, especially during the Great Depression. A lot of things happened – good and bad. ”
Curran says that while she knows about the discrimination Blacks suffered in the 1930s, re-enacting it opened her eyes even more.
“We all know the basics, but we explore how Blacks are segregated, undervalued, and not treated like people,” Curran previewed. “It’s disgusting to see and learn about it, but it’s important to learn about it, not sugarcoat it. We showed the 1960s last season, but this season The Secret of the Sulfur Spring, we’re even better at expressing our biases. There is a bit of censorship, as it is intended for children. But we did learn how this Negro family, the Tremonts, was treated. “
