If viewers catch a whiff of Ally McBeal in character Judge Lola Carmichael, the resemblance is deliberate. "I grew up loving these shows that had fast-paced characters who think fast and speak even faster," Simone Missick tells Watch in her November-December 2019 cover story. "This is a woman who's strong and capable, yet flawed and clumsy."

Star quality

Simone Missick, who grew up in Detroit, notes the level of self-confidence that was instilled "in a community where people embraced me for who I was." That confidence, she says, "is something that all the characters I keep coming into contact with have."

Interesting premise

All Rise star Simone Missick wears vintage sunglasses and jeweled hoop earings and a rough woven plaid coat.

Destined for coolness

Because All Rise is so nuanced, says Simone Missick, she often gets to portray a wide variety of emotions in one scene. "We have comedy and we have drama in the same moment. I think those are the things that make this show stand out."

Time of her life

Simone Missick was so committed to the success of All Rise, that she created a biographical "bible" of sorts for her character Lola, that contained a career and family backstory. Not all of her family ideas were in synch with the show's writers, she shares in a recent Watch! cover story, but it was a testament to her dedication nonetheless.

When the creative team behind The Good Wife and The Good Fight tackle a mystery-based drama about hauntings, miracles, and spiritual possession, you know it's gonna be scary good. Also scary smart, scary engrossing—and maybe just a little funny, too.

Photographers Williams + Hirakawa captured the chic cast members at The Hollywood Roosevelt hotel, and the photos are so good, we guarantee you won't be able to look away.

Cast member Aasif Mandvi describes Katja Herbers' forensic psychologist character Kristen Bouchard as "interestingly caught in the middle, because she's naturally a skeptic but also leans toward, Could it be true? Could some things be true?"

Mike Colter explores the uncharted

Aasif Mandvi takes time to reflect

"One of the realities you realize as you get older in this business is that it's all up and down," Aasif Mandvi tells Watch in the September-October 2019 issue. "That's how this business goes, so you can't take yourself too seriously at any moment."

Katja Herbers opens new doors

"[Evil's creators] were looking for someone who can do some drama," Katja Herbers tells Watch! in the September-October 2019 issue, "but also has a lightness, has a bit of a twinkle sometimes, can bring some fun to this darkness."

Mike Colter keeps things cool

"Will we gloat when we're right?" Mike Colter asks in reference to Acosta's and Bouchard's differing stances. "I don't know, but we have these moments where it's a healthy debate. And perhaps that's our flirtation, perhaps that's our relationship."

Katja Herbers hits new heights

"I am quite a scaredy-cat myself, so it frightened me to read her story at first and to envision it a little bit," says Katja Herbers of her Evil alter ego Kristen Bouchard.

"I was raised in an Indian Muslim family, and it was very common for my grandparents to talk about ghosts, and demons, spirits, things like that," shares Aasif Mandvi tells Watch! in the September-October 2019 issue. "It was just the tapestry of how they grew up and what they believed."

Katja Herbers is a funny girl

Actress Katja Herbers smiles and wears a black dress.

"I think [Evil's creators] were interested in my comedy work, because I come from comedy in Holland," says Katja Herbers, who cites Julia Louis-Dreyfus as one of her favorite actors.

Aasif Mandvi knows good humor

Katja Herbers plays to win

Though psychologist Kristen Bouchard flirts with danger and takes risks, Katja Herbers tells Watch! that her alter ego isn't totally reckless: "If somebody's threatening her, she could just give them something back, throw them off their game. She's not easily intimidated. Maybe underneath, but she's never gonna show it."

These co-stars have three times the charm

"There's a cohesion that's happened because we're working together," says Aasif Mandvi his Evil castmates. "But I feel like we're also the kind of people that all get along organically."
