Through three seasons of Workin’ Moms, viewers have certainly learned that Anne Carlson (Dani Kind) doesn’t do anything halfway. Most recently, that means some non-traditional self defense classes for her teenage daughter, Alice (Sadie Munroe) that reveal Anne may not be as healed as she thinks from the trauma she experienced last season at the hands of ex-husband Brad (Christopher Redman). She’s not only having problems with Alice wanting more freedom, but Anne’s trauma is now starting to spill into her new job as a therapist at a local university. Then, in this week’s new Workin’ Moms episode, airing Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on CBC, Anne’s stress actually comes to a head as she fears for Alice’s safety.
In order to get a closer look at what Anne is dealing with and thinking this season, The TV Junkiesrecently sat down with Kind to discuss her character’s mindset. Kind, who also reprised her role as Mercedes Gardner on Wynonna Earp Season 3, shared why she thinks it’s great that there has been no magic fix for Anne this season and that viewers get to experience her working through everything. She also discusses the recent announcement that Workin’ Moms will be arriving worldwide on Netflix on February 22. While the show is currently available on Netflix Canada, this news means that the whole world will now get to see the Workin’ Moms gang.
The TV Junkies: First off, congratulations on the news that you guys are going global on Netflix! What’s that mean for you all?
Dani Kind: Thank you. It’s really incredible. With it being now on Netflix in Canada, it already feels like it’s cast this wider net and I’m getting stopped by a totally different demographic of people now when I’m out. It’s really, really awesome and now more people get to see it.
Also, the amount of Earpers who haven’t even seen the show and are already promoting it just makes my heart explode. I feel so touched. Varun (Saranga) did a podcast about this recently and spoke about it too, but just how everyone is so supportive, not just of Wynonna Earp, but other stuff the actors are doing. It extends through to even other Earpers and promoting what they are doing. It’s a never ending circle of kindness with that fandom.
