Press Pass LA’s host Heather Gardner sat down with Esther Zynn “Princess Astral” and Callan Potter “Tristian” stars of the new Nickelodeon series “The Other Kingdom” to find out what to expect from this fantasy series!
The new series will air every Sunday on Nickelodeon for back to back episodes for ten weeks. The 20-episode series was created by Thomas W. Lynch (Make It Pop and Alex Mack) and produced by DHX Media, and is also executive produced by Lynch, together with Steven DeNure and Anne Loi for DHX Media.
We also played a fun game with Esther and Callan to test their knowledge of the Nickelodeon shows that have come before them! See how they did here.
