'GLOW' star Britney Young teases a 'crazy episode' in season 3, gushes over Geena Davis and other new castmates
Fans of 'GLOW' are eagerly waiting to see the gorgeous ladies of wrestling take over Las Vegas, and thankfully the wait is not all that long anymore. Come August 9, the show is returning to Netflix with season three, and if you can't wait till then to find out how the GLOW girls are faring, we have got you covered.
Britney Young, who portrays Carmen aka Machu Picchu on the show tells MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) that not everyone is going to acclimate well to Sin City. She elaborates, "At the beginning of the third season everyone's really excited to be there and the show seems to be going very well, and then slowly as this season progresses you kind of start to see how Vegas affects everybody. Some people are still enjoying by the end, but some people are ready to leave."
Carmen specifically really leans into Vegas, and truly enjoys the life there, going out with the girls, partying all night and sleeping in all day. However, she reverts to her old self soon enough, realizing that her dreams of becoming a wrestler are more important than living this Vegas lifestyle and being a part of the Vegas culture. "We see her getting back to her true self by the end of the season," promises Young.
We were actually worried about Carmen's temperament, seeing as she was left disgruntled by Bash (Chris Lowell) and Rhonda's (Kate Nash) impromptu wedding at the end of the last season. Young, however, promises that she is no longer heartbroken over that, and unfortunately she doesn't even share as good a friendship with Bash this season as she did earlier.
"They do have a couple of instances where they do communicate and it looks like maybe they're going to get back to a place that they were and unfortunately they don't. This season she is more concerned with 'Is Rhonda happy in the relationship? Is Rhonda okay?' You know I thought my relationship with Bosch was different, but now I'm more concerned for my best friend on the show, who is Rhonda and how is she doing.'
Young also promises a great season of 'GLOW', especially with the addition of Geena Davis, who has been hired to play Sandy Devereaux St. Clair, the entertainment director of Fan-Tan Casino, where 'GLOW' is headlining. "She's a legend. She really came in this season and gave a breath air and light. She really got into her character and just fit in very well with the rest of us and what we were trying to accomplish this season," gushes Young. She adds that the other new addition to the show, Kevin Calhoun — who plays one of the entertainers at the hotel — blew her away with his performance in every single scene.
She also teases a "crazy episode" in the season, which she does not want to spoil. "It's not quite as you know, great at or like crazy as episode eight of season two ['The Good Twin'] was with the show within a show but we definitely have an episode that I think fans will really really enjoy, " says Young.
Of her character's future on the show, Young hopes that she gets to be in charge and take 'GLOW' to the heights that it is capable of reaching. "Sorry Sam, sorry Cherry, sorry Bash," she says not all that apologetically, adding how she would really love for Carmen to help make it the amazing wrestling league that she knows it can be.
"I would really love for her to fully realize her dream and be the one to actually make that dream come true. We kind of get some glimpses this year where she kind of does take over. And is like 'hey, like I think we should do this' and it ends up working really well. So I love for her to kind of be like the real leader of GLOW essentially."
