To say that British import Ricky Whittle‘s fanbase is ardent is an understatement. The Actor whom just parted ways with The CW‘s hit series The 100, quickly turned around and landed a starring role in upcoming Starz series American Gods. Whittle has not minced words in his opinion about a certain producer for cutting his story lines on that series and fans have been vocal, rallying in support of him.
American Gods centers on ex-convict Shadow (Whittle) who meets a mysterious man named Wednesday (Ian McShane) who seems to know more about him and his past than initially thought. Emily Browning and Sean Harris star also.
The Series begins production later this month in the City, running through the fall, with read-throughs beginning next week.
We spotted Whittle arriving with luggage in-tow, set for an extended stay. With a group of Fans waiting on him, he was beyond nice to stop and greet everybody individually. We know one of our readers Mel in Ottawa loves him dearly and we got him to do a quick shout-out!
