If you think you’ve seen everything Melanie Scrofano is capable of as an actress after watching her star on Wynonna Earp for three seasons, well think again. When she’s not busy leading up the demon slaying on the SYFY and Space Channel supernatural western, Scrofano can be found hanging out with The Hicks over at Letterkenny. There, Scrofano plays the loving and devoted Mrs. McMurray, wife of the sometimes difficult to understand, but well meaning, McMurray (Dan Petronijevic).
A hit and award-winning show in Canada, currently available for streaming on Crave, all six seasons of Letterkenny recently dropped on Hulu for U.S. viewers. Since then, Wynonna Earp fans have been able to check out the comedy, created by star Jared Keeso, and see Scrofano’s flirty and outrageous gin and tonic guzzling character.
To learn more about what is behind our favorite mumbling couple, The TV Junkies recently spoke to Scrofano about her crazy character, as well as what it’s like to be a part of the Letterkennyfamily. She gave us some insights into Mrs. McMurray’s “quirks” and why she and Petronoijevic have such an easy time creating their on screen spouses. Wynonna Earp Season 4 will air later in 2019 on both SYFY and Space.
The TV Junkies: I’m so late to Letterkenny. I formally apologize to you and the entire team. I wrongly assumed it was not for me, and didn’t know what brilliance I was missing out on. I hope you’ll all forgive me.
Melanie Scrofano: I did the same thing and the knee-jerk is that it’s for dudes and jocks. Then you realize that it’s so subversive and smart. I just love what they’ve done with it.
TTVJ: How did the opportunity to be on Letterkenny come about?
MS: I got called in for an audition, and I thought ‘I don’t want to audition for this.’
