Traveling with Mr. Wednesday will introduce Shadow Moon to a wide range of strange and wonderfully weird people (that he doesn’t know are actually Gods, but that’s a discovery for another day/episode.) One of those strange and wonderfully weird people happens to be Zorya Vechernyaya, played by the legendary Cloris Leachman.
Zorya Vechernyaya is the oldest of three sisters who watch over the constellations, guarding us mere mortals from dangers we have long forgotten in American Gods. She lives with her family, even though she doesn’t like them, because, “Family is who you survive with when you need to survive.”
In this exclusive clip, Zorya Vechernyaya is cooking up a big dinner for Shadow and Mr. Wednesday. Shadow offers to help and Zorya Vechernyaya warns him off and tells him about their previous previous royal status and how the food is ultimately going to be a disappointment.
