Captain Tommy Vega (Gina Torres) has a brand new love curiosity in 9-1-1: Lonestar Season 4, and it comes with a little bit of an angelic twist.

Not solely is DB Woodside, who starred the angel Amenadiel on Lucifertaking part in the brand new love curiosity, who’s rescued twice in “The New Hotness” by the 126, however Trevor’s additionally a reverend, as Tommy surprisingly learns on the finish of the episode.

So does that imply an finish to their relationship earlier than it may start? Torres provides a tease about what’s forward and talks about working with Woodside once more (after 24, go well withand pearson).

To begin with, everybody singing within the church was superb.

Gina Torres: Wasn’t that enjoyable? Wasn’t {that a} good little respite from all of the anxiousness and chaos?

Yeah. However then there’s some extra anxiousness and chaos for Tommy when she realizes that Trevor’s the brand new reverend.

Nicely, there’s that.

So at that time, what does she suppose the long run may hope for them? Cualquier cosa? Is she planning to only fully neglect a few date?

This does reveal itself because the season rolls out. At that second, I do not suppose she actually sees how a pastor may match into her life.

And it wasn’t in any respect what she was anticipating.

Nerd. Not even shut. After we choose Tommy up this season, she’s actually simply trying ahead to exploring what this a part of her life is gonna convey. She’s not likely serious about a dedicated relationship. I feel she needs to only have enjoyable for now and date and get again to herself. And that is difficult while you’re courting a pastor.

Going again to a bit earlier, what’s it about Trevor that pulls Tommy sufficient to offer him her quantity and say she’s good with the date date? As a result of it looks like the universe additionally sort of stored throwing them again collectively.

I do know, we save his life twice. I do consider that she appears like destiny has sluggish a hand on this. And you already know, he is positive. [Laughs] So that does not damage. However I additionally suppose it is his love of his daughter de ella and his relationship de ella along with his daughter de ella and her de ella to him, which I feel provides her a clue into the sort of man that he’s.

Yeah, there is a kinship there, for positive, that they discover themselves newly single.

I’ve to say how a lot I really like the casting of DB Woodside as Trevor. Speak about working with him once more.

Yeah, DB’s nice. I used to be so comfortable that we received him, that he truly agreed to do the present, that he had time to do the present as a result of he’s a busy man. We get collectively and it is simple. It is simply straightforward. He is an exquisite actor. He is extremely beneficiant and he is sensible and he is enjoyable and he is humorous and we simply have a very good time.

You have been speaking about the place Tommy is in her life proper now, however is it that Trevor got here into her life on the proper time? Might she be prepared for one thing with another person?

We’re nonetheless attempting to determine if Trevor did not present up on the proper time. I feel she’s open to prospects. I do not suppose she’s put a reputation to it. She had an attractive marriage, so I consider that she’s trying ahead to exploring what it’s to be Tommy Vega lady versus Tommy Vega mom, Tommy Vega paramedic, Tommy Vega spouse. What’s vital to her? I feel numerous ladies, as their kids become older and do not want them as a lot, in the event that they discover themselves single once more, whether or not it is that they are widows or newly divorced, it’s a must to get again to you and what makes you cheerful and what makes you tick throughout these instances while you’re not in service to all people else. She’s there. Ella she’s in that place in her life de ella.

So are we going to see who she is when she’s off shift?

Yeah, she’s attempting to determine all that out, completely.

We noticed Tommy telling Grace (Sierra McClain) about Trevor — I like that second within the church — and I am assuming it is only a matter of time earlier than Judd (Jim Parrack) is aware of. What are we going to see from these three in terms of Trevor?

Oh, Judd, in fact he does. Poor factor. Yeah, Grace is my greatest pal, so you will see all of that. You may see her attempting to work it by way of out loud with Grace and attempting to only get just a little perspective on every little thing that is taking place, as a result of it is one factor to say you are prepared after which it is one factor to be prepared and, and I feel that is the place we entered the state of affairs. She’s like, OK, I feel I am prepared. After which, oh wait, what? What’s taking place right here? It is all so much unexpectedly.

What about your favourite scene to movie from the premiere?

I really like the movie-making magic, so I actually liked strolling by way of — and it is form of non-eventful as you are watching it, however for myself, one of many nice issues about doing what I do is strolling onto a set and seeing how the set decorators and the designers have created this world. And so the way in which they created this carnival, we begin and it is daytime and it is raining, after which we take it into the nighttime and all of the lights are lit up and also you see the rides and it is fantastic.
