I did this interview to help out my friend Jamie from SciFiVision who couldn’t do it. It was great to talk to these four young people. They’re very passionate about their roles on this new teen ghost/murder mystery series. It was enjoyable to hear them talk about their show. Don’t miss these interviews or “School Spirits!!
