Barkhad Abdi & Yusra Warsama Interview – Castle Rock Season 2 – NYCC 2019 Exclusive

These two play on screen siblings and seemed to have developed a great chemistry. They are new characters to the Stephen King universe. They go into the pros and cons of creating a character from the ground up in an established world.

Yusra Warsama plays Dr. Nadia Omar (Nadia Howlwadaag). A Harvard trained medical doctor who works at the hospital in Jerusalem’s Lot. Any long time King fans should have a hint about what could potentially happen there. Ms. Warsama gives insight on her character.

Barkhad Abdi plays Abdi Howlwadaag. He’s the brother of Ms. Warsama’s character. Abdi wants to establish a firmer presence for Somali people in the Lot. Mr. Abdi gives some details on how his character is related to the other characters in Castle Rock.

We’d like to thank Hulu for the opportunity to sit down with the stars of the series. We enjoyed the dive deeper into the incredible world they are expanding on exclusively on their network.

We’ll be releasing more interviews with the on, and off, screen talent of this amazing series all week!

Castle Rock Season 2 debuts October 23 exclusively on Hulu

A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories (Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption) are set in there. Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller — a first-of-its-kind reimagining that unites King’s themes and worlds and brings together the author’s most iconic and beloved characters.

In Season 2, a feud between warring clans comes to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes, Stephen King’s nurse from hell, gets waylaid in Castle Rock.
