Your character Pinky has appeared in some episodes of Look real detective already. What makes this installment so special?

Hannah Simone: They trusted me to sing [Laughs] shows how incredibly brave Disney is. I mean i did New girl with a professional singer, that was amazing. So I knew to stay in my lane because I saw a real singer do it.

So, did you seek any advice before entering the recording booth? Or did you just go with the flow?

I remember when they told me they wanted Pinky to sing a song, I laughed really hard and said, “I don’t know if this is a great idea.” And they said, “well, she’s singing a song.” I said, “Okay, maybe we can make it part of his character. That she’s not the best singer. “But it was interesting to me because I think we often don’t assume the best of ourselves. I had a lot of fun doing it and Pinky is incredibly confident and positive, so I sang like Pinky.

The big surprise for me was that it sounded really good. So those are the wonderful things about being an actor, is that you learn things about yourself through a character. I would never have thought of singing and like Pinky, singing this song about goats was great. It was a great experience. So now I am about to sing in any cartoon.

As you mentioned, Pinky sings about goats and loves animals. Is that something you can relate to?

It is really interesting because I am a great animal lover. I have an Instagram account just for my cats. I am that person. I love animals so much. And you would have to ask [EP] Sascha [Paladino] and [Story Editor/Series Developer] Becca [Topol], but I remember when we went to shoot the first few episodes, a goat was mentioned. They always imagined that Pinky would be so interested in goats or that happened because she was so excited to have a little animal associated with her. That’s definitely something I can relate to. I love that animal.

What does it mean to be a part of this series that really highlights the cultures and traditions of South Asia?

When they brought the show to me and they told me who Mira was, this incredibly smart, brave and resourceful South Asian girl, and that a South Asian actress was going to voice the character, and that they were going to surround that character with a base casting. I didn’t even ask which character, I didn’t ask how often my character appeared. I just said yes. It is important. I grew up watching cartoons on Sunday mornings and never saw myself represented. And the idea that we are now in a place where these programs are being done, that I could be part of that and lend myself to that. I did it without any hesitation.

How have you seen the impact of the program?

When they announced the cast and all the amazing actors and actresses that had joined it, my DMs were blown away. And then the show premiered in March and since then it’s been the same from parents, teachers, and kids old and young, who have written to tell me how much they love the show. It has been the most comforting to see how far it goes. It’s just amazing [to see] parents doing as DIY Sight birthday parties, fashion, costumes and cake toppers. It shows how much it means to young people to have a program like this.

People have been rediscovering New girl while you’re stuck at home. How does it feel to know that the show continues to gain a following?

Yes, it was very interesting. I remember when we were filming the show, it was quite an intense process. We work long hours a day, five days a week, basically. And I remember in the summers when we had a break and we would come out of that bubble, you would go to the grocery store, I was always amazed at how many people came to say how much they loved the show, because we were working so hard.

You really couldn’t see the impact of how many people were fans of the show. And I feel like that’s what’s happening again. I feel like when the world hopefully starts to get back to normal because everyone has made good decisions, it will be a bit of a shock to the system. I only know through social media how many people are discovering the show for the first time or watching the show again.

There is something about New girl I think because it’s five people who are mostly in a loft together a lot of the time, people who are at home, I think they find some comfort. Because it feels like they are with a group of people who are trying to figure out life. I think it is a natural program to watch in quarantine. It’s been lovely to hear, but I think it will be interesting once we’re all back in the world to fully feel it, but I’m excited. I love our program. And every time someone says they’ve seen or seen them again or helped them through a difficult time, I take pride in being a part of something that can help people and make people laugh when things go wrong. they get difficult.
