    Episode 4: “Explissssit Content Warning 🐍🐍🐍” (with Harry Hamlin)

    There’s no party like an Uncle Cortland party. And fair warning, you might be exposed to some risqué snake content that you didn’t ask for but are getting anyway! In this episode, host Amy Nicholson welcomes the master of ceremonies himself – Harry Hamlin, who plays Cortland Mayfair. Together, they unpack Episode 4 of Mayfair Witches, “Curiouser and Curiouser,” and Harry tries to convince Amy that Cortland is actually a softie. Plus, Harry shares the extensive research he did to get into character, which – spoiler alert – includes a retired surfer bar, Tennessee Williams, and reptile auditions.

Insightful Host and Guests

I grew up watching re-runs of “Dark Shadows”,
read Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”, and Sookie
Stackhouse novels. All I enjoyed.I also watched the
cinema version of “ Interview with the Vampire “,
which I chuckled all throughout. Actor Tom Cruise
as Lestat was laughable and Brad Pitt in his early
acting career couldn’t act his way out of a paper bag.
That movie convinced me to bypass on reading
Anne Rice’s novels.
However this AMC TV series convinced me to
order all the books. The superb casting, historical
context and excellent script has indeed enthralled
me. The Podcast host, Naomi, positively influenced
me even more. She engaged her guests with thought
provoking and intelligent conversation. It was illuminating
and fun to listen. Thank you.
Very eager for Season Two.

Not like the book, but still good

I’ve learned to not get my hopes up with books turned into movies.

Have you read Chocolat by Joanne Harris? Not really a rom com.

So I came in with low expectations and I’m so glad! I’m enjoying the story they are retelling, and the lush imagery.

Dispenzerised ,

Host

Sorry it could be good but sadly for me the host is like nails on a chalkboard. You can feel the guest’s discomfort with her during their interviews.
I’ll stick to the tv series
