“I am so incredibly proud of this season and everyone who worked on it!”
What’s your favorite thing about playing Darbie?
Abby: What isn’t fun about playing Darbie? She doesn’t take herself too seriously, she has her own quirky sense of humor, and she loves everything about magic and wants to try every recipe in the book!
How has Darbie changed/grown throughout the show?
Abby: Darbie has definitely learned to form her own opinions and has been able to take on leadership roles when they are given to her. She has also proven herself to be a strong and trustworthy friend and I’m really proud of her accomplishments in this upcoming season.
How is this season different from the first two?
Abby: This season is nothing like you’ve ever seen of Just Add Magic. It’s actually my favorite season that we’ve filmed so far! The mystery in this season is a little more complicated so you have to watch closely so you don’t miss any clues!
What’s one thing fans would be surprised to know about filming?
Abby: Some of the names of the spices and places we visit are named after people on the crew or in production! It was always fun to see who’s name would be referenced next as the season progressed! Watch the credits closely and see if you can figure some out!
