‘Stargirl’ is the latest live-action show from the DC Universe which stars Brec Bassinger as Courtney Whitmore in the lead role. Now the fans of Stargirl will be getting to see a new character in the show which will be played by Trae Romano. According to the storyline, Courtney just got a stepfather to deal with, which consequently introduces Trae Romano as Mike Dugan, who’ll be playing Courtney’s stepbrother.
Recently, Trae Romano opened up about his character ‘Mike’ and revealed what he has in store for the fans of Stargirl. Trae mentioned that he will be adding the much-needed humor element on the show. The show is set in a small town Blue Valley and revolves around a high school girl Courtney Whitmore who goes on to become Stargirl.
In an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), Trae was asked about how he was introduced to his character? He said: “I was first introduced to Mike when I received my audition. I immediately liked him. He’s kind of a smart aleck which some might say about me. Before the first day of filming, I met with Geoff (Johns) and he explained more about Mike and how he saw him. He told me during our meeting that I hit the nail on the head with Mike Dugan”.
When asked about his character, he said: “Mike is a typical eighth-grader, trying to find his way, obsessed with video games and junk food. He tries to cover his sensitive side with humor and quick comebacks”.
Trae was asked about what can one expect from the show? He replied – “You can expect a wide variety of drama, comedy, action and everything in between. The way it’s filmed and color graded is more like a movie than a series which really makes ‘Stargirl’ stand out”.
’Stargirl’ appears to be an instant with the fans, though an early release came as a surprise but nobody is complaining. The next episode of the show will be airing on May 25.
