Emmy Nominated FX Comedy what do we do in the shadows Season 4 is back as Nandor (Kayvan Novak), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), Laszlo (Matt Berry), Colin Robinson (Mark Prokash) and Guillermo (Harvey Guillen) are reunited at their Staten Island mansion because The gang begins to pursue ambitions. From finding his own, eternal love to starting a new vampire nightclub.

Not only that, but “this season will answer basically all the questions that people have had for the past three seasons,” Guillen told ET. And some of the biggest answers will be about Guillermo.

“I mean, we’ve always talked about how Guillermo doesn’t kiss and explains. It’s something he’s brought up with, partly because of his background or maybe because he was told That you don’t show affection in public or maybe sexuality isn’t a topic of conversation for the dinner table,” explains the actor. was too embarrassed to grow up [in the past],

Read on to find out what Guillen had to say about Nandor and Guillermo being the modern Sam and Diane, meeting his character’s extended family, as well as how he feels about joining parts in the DC Universe Harley Quinn And blue beetle,

ET: How would you describe this season overall?

Harvey Guillen: We are about to reunite the gang after a year of separation and a lot of emotions are about to come out. So, it seems to me that this season everyone is on their journey to find out what makes them happy, which includes marriage, reincarnation, being honest with themselves, and new business adventures. Are included. So, everyone is on this path to better themselves.

Like you said, the premiere sees everyone back together after their separation at the end of last season. And things look pretty tense between Guillermo and the Vampire. How do we test those relationships?

I think everyone will be pushed to their limit and this season, Guillermo will be pushed to his ultimate limit. He being an acquaintance has been producing it for 13 years and now, the answer he wants is the answer he has given himself. [He can’t wait] To grant permission or title to someone else.

I think Guillermo is trying to take matters into his own hands. As you see later in the season, [there’s] A big explosion that shows just how powerful and strong he is, and is just a master of his own space, and doesn’t necessarily have to use any sort of special power or anything, except that he naturally has What is from It’s so good he can finally flex it.

I think the part that pushes Guillermo to his limits is Nandor. And I know the relationship between the two of you gets asked a lot, but how will Nandor’s search for love test his relationship with Guillermo?

Well, that’s what I think a lot of people, you know, want to see them together. They’ve been together for over a decade as a really close partnership, if you’d like. It is a relationship that if they were with someone else they would be a married couple. [There would be] Intimacy, you know? And so, I think people are just waiting for that last step. Like, “Are you going to do it? Come on, will you? They will, right? Is it, you know, encourage,

I think sometimes we want to hurry things up that need to be done systematically. And I think the audience, especially this season looking for Nandor’s wife, and asking Guillermo to help him find his wife and be the best man in her marriage, is what most people would think would be history. There is a slap in front. We have seen, but you have created this impression in your mind after seeing it. We never said anything officially about being with them or their feelings for each other. They miss each other or what, but are your best friends, you know? You and your best friend can be so close. Like, you can watch a movie with your best friend but that doesn’t mean you are going to have a physical relationship with them.

So, we are showing a really strong bond between these two characters and whatever happens in the future will happen organically. You know, being away that year made him realize a lot of things. The last time we saw him, he was very excited to spend the rest of his life traveling through the night with Nandor. I think it’s nice to see that we’re probably going to see him in a way — you know, we get hints of it [him acting] mysteriously. He is talking to someone on the phone. So, we’re like, “Wow, what’s going on?” And we can finally hear Guillermo kiss and tell.

I’m glad you mentioned encourage Because I wanted to ask, does it look like Guillermo and Nandor are modern-day Sam and Diane? What’s it like to add a new layer to the “will they, won’t they” dynamic we often see on TV?

I love encourage, This is a fine example. It’s fun because Kayvan and I play with these characters and we love what we do, so it’s fun to see, you know, they connect to each other and how more people want to see them. [The audience] Tune in to every episode to see a little sprinkling of it, like, “What’s going to happen? What will take them next? Will that set them back?”

So, it’s nice to know that fans really like their dynamic. And it won’t disappoint. This season, we will show you a different color of painting and I think people will really like it.

I also have to ask about meeting Guillermo’s extended family, which you all teased as a great episode. What can we expect from his family and how does this reveal what we know about Guillermo?

This is one of my favorite episodes of the season. We get to meet the family and we get to see where he comes from and how he interacts with them and what their personality might be like.

Remember that Guillermo is a different person in each environment. When he’s with the mosquito collectors in the Tri-State area, he’s a little more confident and has more voice and leads. When he is with the vampires in the first season, he is quiet and timid. He is afraid of being punished and serves as an acquaintance for another year. And so, he likens himself to a chameleon to whatever it is he should be in that environment, and then we’ll see what he means to his family and how he puts himself in that environment, which will be in the audience. Will be interesting to see.

in addition to the following what do we do in the shadowsyou also have Harley Quinn is coming. In Season 3, you play Nightwing. What made you want to join the show and be a part of that voice cast?

Being a part of that world, I mean, it’s so iconic. When they asked me to voice Nightwing, I [made this] Joke they were typecasting. I was like, “Nightwings were known for having their best assets behind them.” And so, I remember making fun of him and people went online and ran with him.

But I love the idea of ​​getting involved in DC’s world with both animation and live-action. i just finished filming blue beetle And that’s coming next year. So, I’m excited about it. and am doing Harley Quinn Just goes by hand. To play a superhero, I mean, it’s great.

In terms of what we see Harley QuinnHow would you describe Nightwing?

He is suffering. We see him right off the bat, back from Bludhaven and there’s something about him that’s out to prove something that we hear in his tone. And he wants to lead with, like, the harsh exterior. But remember that no one is as strict as they pretend to be. It is always the case that their bark is bigger than their bite. With that, he wants to prove that his bite is absolutely bone-crushing.

since you also mentioned blue beetleI was curious what it’s like to be on set, especially with such a huge Latinx cast that we don’t usually see in superhero movies.

When I got this role, I was absolutely right because it is a very iconic artist and that is about to change everything. I always say representation matters where my face is blue, but this cast is all Latinx actors. When you read the script — I grew up in a Mexican household — and to read aloud lines that I’ve never heard in other stories, and I’ve never heard that dialogue in other movies Like what I’ve seen, and so it’s going to be phenomenal.

I am very honored to be a part of it. And there will be some Latino kid watching this movie who can feel inspired to do just about anything. And I think that’s what’s going to happen to the Latino community black Panther was for the black community and representation. we say it until our face turns blue, but we [need to] See examples of more people of color setting being role models and not just Latino gang bangers, like Latino toilet scrubbers. No, we should see them as heroes in positions of power, [living an] Aspirational life because it exists. Therefore, we need more of it. I always say we need more superheroes of color.
