Last weeks episode “Good Mother” introduced Jason Behr’s character Tripp on The CW’s reimagining based on the “Roswell High” books by Melinda Metz.
After the show aired on the west coast, showrunner Carina Adly MacKenzie shared some behind the scenes photos from Jason’s first episode on Instagram. She wrote “a MASSIVE round of applause for team 1947, led by Jason Behr. I never thought we’d convince him to make an appearance — and I was right. He didn’t want to make an appearance, he wanted to make an impact, and he certainly will.”
Kayla Ewell, Cassandra Jean Amell and Gaius Charles were also guest stars in this episode. Read more and check out the photos on Instagram:
And now that @cwroswellnm finally aired on the west coast, a MASSIVE round of applause for team 1947, led by Jason Behr. I never thought we’d convince him to make an appearance — and I was right. He didn’t want to make an appearance, he wanted to make an impact, and he certainly will. @kaylaewell and @cassandrapants have been my family for a long time, but they REALLY had to trust me with these roles — guys, Kayla shot these action-heavy scenes just six weeks after having her daughter. And finally, CAN YOU BELIEVE that @gaiuscharles, effing SMASH effing WILLIAMS #20, agreed to be on my little show?!? I still can’t believe it. Tripp, Nora, Louise, and Bronson have a hell of a story to tell you in the next few months, friends — settle in. How lucky I am, truly truly truly.
The show’s costume department shared a photo of Jason six days ago, too. You can find it here: @roswellnmcostumes on Instagram
Tonight’s new episode is entitled “What If God Was One Of Us”. Shiri Appleby directed and Jason is going to guest star again.
“Working with him has already been such a special experience for all of us –– particularly when [Roswell co-star] Shiri Appleby was on set to direct him. I was such a huge fan of Roswell as a kid, so having their stamp of approval –– not to mention their expertise and advice –– has really meant the world to me, the cast and the crew.” said Carina Adly MacKenzie about working with the two actors from the original “Roswell” series.
