With all eight episodes of the supernatural drama The Girl In The Woods premiering on Peacock today, The Queer Review is excited to share an exclusive clip from the series featuring non-binary actor Misha Osherovich who portrays non-binary character Nolan Frisk on the show.
Set in the Pacific Northwest and based on Crypt TV’s 2018 short film The Door in the Woods and the 2020 sequel The Girl in the Woods, the series follows teenage runaway Carrie’s (Stefanie Scott, Insidious: Chapter 3) escape from her mysterious, cult-like colony that guards the world from the terrifying monster dimension hidden behind a mysterious door within the woods. As she faces her demons, she bonds with two new friends Nolan (Osherovich, who recently starred in the horror Freaky) and Tasha (Sofia Bryant, I Am Not Okay with This) to fight back together.
WATCH the exclusive clip below from a scene where Nolan becomes frustrated as they try to discuss their gender identity with their father.
Produced by Crypt TV, The Girl In The Woods also stars Will Yun Lee as Arthur Dean, Kylie Liya Page as Sara, Reed Diamond as Hosea, and Leonard Roberts as Khalil. Krysten Ritter directed the first four episodes, including the pilot, and Jacob Chase directed the last four episodes. Jane Casey Modderno served as head writer.
They are SO beautiful! I am so happy to see a non-binary person shine in a role of a non-binary character as well. I keep repeating this, but it’s the truth: representativeness changes lives!
I put a lot of faith in this new generation because they are having the chance to grow up having access to information and being much more aware that people are different and deserve respect and empathy. And this kind of work is part of this evolution.
