If you’ve been following my Star Trek coverage here at Fangirlish, then you know how excited I am for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Imagine my delight when I learned that Fangirlish was invited to be a part of a series of roundtable interviews with the cast of Strange New Worlds! First up, I had the pleasure of getting to chat with Anson Mount, the Captain of our crew. Anson Mount joined the cast of Star Trek: Discovery in season 2 as legacy character Captain Pike. His performance as Pike made him an instant fan favorite. Mount is actually a big Star Trek fan and his love of Trek shows in his performance.
The positive reception to this Enterprise crew, particularly Mount’s performance as Captain Pike, begat the production of a spin-off series. The pandemic slowed production, but I’m quite happy that we’re finally getting Strange New Worlds on our screens this spring. Are you ready to explore Strange New Worlds? Take a look at our interview with Anson Mount and join the hype train with us!
Thank you to Paramount and ViacomCBS for inviting Fangirlish to participate in these interviews! Thanks also to Anson Mount for consenting to the interview and his thoughtful responses. I’m so excited to watch you on my screen again this year.
Stay tuned to Fangirlish for all your Star Trek news, reviews, and information. We’ll be sharing more roundtable interviews with the rest of the cast of Strange New Worlds soon.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will premiere on May 5, 2022, on Paramount+.
