VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Yetide Badaki & Bruce Langley Reveal Shockers From ‘American Gods’ Season 3
Yetide Badaki and Bruce Langley teased some shocking scenes in the upcoming season of American Gods.
“The series is set in a world where our beliefs give birth to representations of gods in real life in America,” Langley told uInterview’s Erik Meers. “These gods walk around as seemingly everyday people.”
“I play the Technical Boy who is the representation of the god of the internet and technology,” he said. “I’m part of the New Gods this new wave of gods that are attempting to exterminate and kind of get rid of what they see as the obsolete Old Gods, and kind of retain all of this belief and the power they get from it, from humanity, for themselves.”
“I play Bilquis, the goddess of love, also known as the Queen of Sheba,” Badaki started. “And she is an Old God, someone who has been around for eons and eons, and so this third season we really see her start to go on this journey of self discovery that leads her to connect with some moments and some capabilities and parts of herself from the past. We start to connect with the Orishas, which then helps her to step further into her power, and as we know she is pretty powerful in her own way, but we see a whole other side of her, a whole other aspect of this goddess.”
“And in Season 3 we see tech boy really really trying to further the aims of the New Gods and get the approval of the surrogate parent figure and boss in world,” Langley said. He added, “The introduction to Dominique Jackson‘s world is a really, really fun, powerful scene and there are no questions in the room as to who’s in charge of that room after the scene’s over, so I think that that’s something people are going to enjoy.”
Badaki revealed that her favorite scene had to do with Langley’s character: “A fun one is one with Technical Boy, and I’ll leave it at that.”
