The Messengers Descend on WonderCon 2015

From TV Equals:

Over Easter weekend the new drama The Messengers, which will debut on The CW on April 17, took to the stage at the Anaheim Convention Center as part of the 2015 WonderCon.

The cast of the show who participated in the moderated panel last weekend included Shantel VanSanten (Gang Related and One Tree Hill), JD Pardo (Revolution), Joel Courtney (Super 8), Diogo Morgado (The Bible), Anna Diop (Everybody Hates Chris), Craig Frank (The Lizzie Bennet Diaries) and relative newcomer Jon Fletcher as well as executive producers Eoghan O’Donnell and Trey Callaway.

The premise of ‘The Messengers’ is about what happens when a mysterious object plummets to Earth. The blinding explosion it causes sends out a shock wave that instantly connects five strangers who awaken after the pulse with extraordinary gifts they can barely believe. Most mysterious of all is a figure known only as The Man, who brings death and suffering wherever he appears. The wheels of Revelation have begun to turn, and these five newly christened Angels of the Apocalypse may be the only hope for preventing the impending Rapture.

The following are excerpts from the press room discussion with the cast and creative minds behind the show:


Joel Courtney: I play Peter Moore. He’s a regular teenager who has regular teenager problems. He has a past, being moved from foster home to foster home. He’s had a previous suicide attempt so when the object crashes from Heaven the energy wave hits us and we die, but when that happens (Peter is) swimming in the pool so people think it’s another suicide attempt, and I’m trying to convince them that it’s not. This is when Peter really finds out who he is and really finds his voice.

Question: Your characters are very different with different powers, do (their powers) manifest differently based on their personalities?


Joel: Peter’s emotional life is just rocked. From his childhood, because of the whole foster home to foster home situation, and at the end of the pilot when…Peter’s gift kicks in, which is strength…he loses control. In later episodes, Peter finds that his…control (of his power) comes from within.

From Collider

A meteor crash in the New Mexico desert brings unexpected and supernatural gifts to a group of strangers in the pilot for the CW’s new show, The Messengers. The stars and creators sat down with us after their panel to talk about what makes this show worth watching and what distinguishes it from other apocalypse-based shows currently on the air.

During our round table interview, we discussed everything from the original concept of the storyline to what drew the actors to the script, and learned a thing or two about the characters they are playing. Hit the jump to read more about what to expect when the show premieres on April 17th.


Joel Courtney explains that his character, Peter, has had a very rough upbringing. Being gifted with strength will be a struggle for him, especially after a fateful incident that occurs in the pilot. “Peter is looking for control over something that he has none. He did something that will follow him the rest of his life,” says Courtney, “He finds through the stability of the messengers to gain control.”
