Today’s TV Addict Top 5: Questions with THE THUNDERMANS Star Addison Riecke

Addison Riecke

I caught up with the incredibly talented star of THE THUNDERMANS, Addison Riecke. We chatted about the second season of the Nickelodeon hit, her character, Nora’s growth on the show, and working with her awesome costars.

Are there any specific scenes or episodes you are most excited for the
fans to see?

Addison Riecke: There are a lot of exciting special episodes and guest stars this season. We got to work on a cross over episode with the Haunted Hathaways. Also, the band MKTO guest starred on an episode. Every episode is amazing and we are having so much fun filming them.

Nora is really starting to mature on the show. How will we see her grow and change this season?
In season 2, Nora shows more of a sensitive side of herself to everyone. I’m so glad to see her with this sensitive side, because it is something I can definitely relate to.

Is there anything that you would like to see happen to Nora on the show? Any situations that you would love to see her tackle?
It amazes me how much Nora has developed as a character. I would love for there to be an episode where Nora and Billy go to summer camp. Phoebe and Max would have to be camp counselors, in order for the parents to agree to let them go. Then hilarity, mischief, and mayhem follow!

How is working with Kira, Jack, and Diego? Is there anything you’ve
learned while working with them?

Our chemistry really just came naturally. Almost all of us are only children so it was a lot of fun to be an instant family. They are truly the siblings I never had. With that being said, we have learned a lot from each other and have grown individually and together as a TV family.

If Nora could appear on any show on TV right now, what show would you like to see her on?
I would love for Nora to appear on Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, and another Nickelodeon show that will have their season 1 premiere on Sept. 13th. I think it would be lot of fun to guest star on a show that is centered around kids that are all Nora’s age.

You can catch an all-new episode of THE THUNDERMANS tonight at 9:00 on Nickelodeon.

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL! STALKER! DANCING WITH THE STARS! GENERAL HOSPITAL! The TV Addict Week in Rewind

aubrey plaza

Best Casting: Aubrey Plaza, perhaps best known as the slow-speaking, sarcastic secretary-from-hell April on PARKS & RECREATION, will give voice to the slow-speaking, sarcastic pet-from-hell in Lifetime’s GRUMPY CAT’S WORST CHRISTMAS EVER. Finally, a holiday special for us Grinches!

Generic Rebranding Of The Week: The TV Guide Network will now be known as “Pop,” promising to celebrate fandom with a “fun, enthusiastic and celebratory approach [that won’t be’ mean-spirited or snarky.” Guess that means the Twitterverse won’t be taking part!

Most Likely To Bring About Change: Forget public outcry. Want to know what’s going to cause the NFL to take series action against their violence-exhibiting players? The fact that Anheuser-Busch is “not yet satisfied with the league’s handling” of the situation. Forget bros-before-hos, kids, cause when it comes to sponsors, it’s all about payers-before-players.

Best Calling-Out: Finally, someone called THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Hope out on the fact that she married Wyatt because Liam was, like, 45 seconds late. “You never thought it could be a flight delay or bad traffic or tuberculosis or the flu?” asked Quinn. “You needed an excuse to marry the brother of your fiancée!” [Read more...]

The path of true love is never as smooth as hoped. In the case of Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) and Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant) in HAVEN, their romantic relationship has had many obstacles – the latest being Audrey’s alter-ego personality Mara, who is claiming original rights to the body and who insists that Audrey exists no more.

In a recent exclusive interview to promote tonight’s two-hour premiere of HAVEN on Showcase in Canada, star Lucas Bryant talked about the quest to get Audrey back and what possible obstacles lied ahead in Season 5 of HAVEN. [Read more...]
