This post will obviously contain spoilers for the first episode, though everything we’re talking about happens within the first 10 minutes.

The show kicks off in 1995 when young rockers – played by Charlie Gillespie, Jeremy Shada, and Owen Joyner – are getting ready for their biggest show yet. Right before the concert, they decide to get hot dogs from a street vendor… and they end up dying from the food.

The series then quickly fast forwards to 2020 and follows a young girl named Julie (Madison Reyes) who is able to see the ghosts of the three boys. She soon discovers that when they perform together, other people can see them as well.

JJ got to know soon-to-be rising star Madison with our exclusive 10 Fun Facts feature. Check it out below!

  1. I’m a big anime fan. I’ve been watching anime since the 6th grade, and my love for it has only grown. The most recent anime I finished was DEMON SLAYER.
  2. I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. If you were to ask what my favorite crafty snack was on set, they would all say PB&J. Maria, the lovely lady in charge of crafty, would always put halves on my chair just before she put the sandwiches out for everyone else.
  3. I love reading. My favorite series at the moment are all the “Alex Cross” books by my favorite writer James Patterson.
  4. I played Princess Jasmine in my 7th grade school musical. Being a princess was something I constantly daydreamed about while growing up. When I heard that the school musical was Aladdin, I worked so hard to get the role. My favorite moment from playing her was on closing night. This little girl wanted to take a picture with me because I was a princess.
  5. I know I mentioned anime, but I’m also a really big DC Comic fan. My father and I are really into that stuff. He prefers Marvel but DC’s animated movies are just too good and never disappoint. I also just really love all the Robins and their individual backstories.
