Pose Cast Exclusive
Category Is: Fabulous
It’s one of the most talked about shows of the year – the incredible Pose! We landed an exclusive with the cast at their Pre-Emmy’s party.
If you’re not already a fan of Pose, let’s bring you up to speed!
Set in the 1980s, `Pose' is a dance musical that explores the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the ball culture world, the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe, and the downtown social and literary scene. Blanca forms a `house', a self-selected family that provides support to LGBTQ youth who have been rejected by their birth families.
Damon is a dancer who joins Blanca's house. Together, they compete in the balls -- where house members challenge each other in various categories and are judged on their outfits, attitude, or dance skills -- against Blanca's former house mother, Elektra. Pray Tell is Godfather to the children who compete in the balls. Angel is a streetwalker who develops feelings for a new client, Stan, who has a loving wife, Patty. James Van Der Beek co-stars as Stan's boss, Matt.
We caught up with Billie Porter on the pink carpet, and the Grammy Winning, Tony Winning, Golden Globe and Emmy nominated superstar kept it real! We talk everything from sex scenes to his iconic Oscars red carpet moment!
We also caught up with Dyllon Burnside, who plays Ricky Evangelista and Angelica Ross, who plays Candy Ferocity.
Pose airs on Showcase, only on Foxtel.
