It’s about damn time we were given a worthwhile LGBTQ+ storyline on the Hallmark channel… The hit series Good Witch just kicked off a new and exciting same-sex romance between Joy (played by Kat Barrell) and Zoey (played by Kyana Teresa). Yes, you read that right. The budding romance between Joy and firefighter Zoey is without a doubt heating up– I mean, it’s a slow burn for sure, but we are totally here for it! Kat Barrell, who is a queer icon in her own right, welcomes newcomer Kyana Teresa into the LGBTQ+ character fold and we’re here to get all the deets on this charming, yet guarded new character Hallmark has bestowed upon us.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Kyana about her pivotal role on Good Witch, and the responsibility she must feel while breaking these barriers on the Hallmark Channel. We spoke at length about her start in the industry, what’s in store for #TeamJoey (lots of juicy moments coming up), and she even urged viewers who are hesitant to come along for the ride to trust in the process. From nightly rituals, to answering the most asked question on the internet: HAS SHE SEEN WYNONNA EARP YET?!? We’ve got one helluva convo in store for you all.
