Tyler Blackburn & Nicole Gale Anderson: It's Very Supernatural

Posted: Updated:

It's been a rough year for Miranda Collins, the character played by Nicole Gale Anderson on the freshman ABC Family series, "Ravenswood," which is a spinoff of "Pretty Little Liars." How rough?  Well, she died in the second episode.

"It was kind of crazy. It's a little nuts that they did it so soon in the season, but I think that's what they were going for .. that shock value. You get so attached to the character, starting with the Pretty Little Liars Halloween episode, and now she's dead! What now?"

And playing someone who's now a spirit isn't as easy as you might think.  "Since Miranda is a now a ghost, she's having a lot of interactions with ghosts and other supernatural things. So half the time, I'm playing to nothing. I have to take my own cues, 'Huh! Oh my gosh, what was that?'" she tells Parade Magazine.  "I have to use my imagination a bit, so it's definitely sparked the little child inside me. Which has been fun. But there are definitely sometimes where they really try to scare us. Tyler Blackburn and I had this one scene the other day where this ghost is supposed to come through and so they triggered this big gust of wind and we were definitely jumping at that! We weren't expecting that one at all. We didn't know that they were going to use a leaf blower!"
