Stars of Netflix Hit Series “You” Wow Manila
Penn Badgley and Shay Mitchell celebrate international success of the show with Filipino fans
Lovers of the new Netflix Original series You were in for a treat as its two leading actors recently visited Manila for an exclusive press event and a special meet-and-greet with select fans.
Now streaming on Netflix, You is an American psychological thriller TV series developed by writer, producer, and film director Greg Berlanti and American writer and producer Sera Gamble, and produced by Warner Horizon Television. The story follows a New York bookstore manager Joe Goldberg (Badgley), who falls in love and becomes obsessed with a customer named Guinevere Beck. Mitchell plays Peach Salinger, Beck’s best friend.
Partners from the Philippine press and entertainment industry flocked to The Peninsula Manila for an exclusive sit-down panel, “In Conversation with You," with the show’s biggest stars, American actor Penn Badgley and Filipino-Canadian actress Shay Mitchell who made a name in American primetime TV by playing strong female personalities.
During the special tête-à-tête with the media, the pair discussed the success behind You while delving into the show’s impact on audiences who use social media, including its effects, both good and bad.
To celebrate their special stay in the country, Netflix hosted special events for the entire week for fans’ enjoyment. The meet-and-greet between Badgley and Mitchell was held at Greenbelt 5 in Makati City in which superfans spent a day in conversation with the stars.
The fun continues until January 19 as fans who will troop to Greenbelt 5 can tour a replica of Mooney’s Bookstore and “The Cage,” the show’s so-called glass room. The installation is open to the public.
