Schitt’s Creek, starring Dan and Eugene Levy, is a TV dramedy on CBC about a wealthy family who loses everything— except for the backwoods town they once bought on a whim. The January premiere will be a great excuse to use more of everyone’s fave emoji. (We love
Creek.) In anticipation, we asked Canadian actress Emily Hampshire, who plays a “hard but soft” townie, some important questions: What emoji do you really wish existed? “An ‘I’m sick of texting’ emoji. It would be a big thumb, swollen from texting.” This family experiences “the worst thing that could ever happen.” What’s your nightmare? “Yikes! Really? Getting some horrible disease where I’m trapped in a paralyzed body—or losing my mind. I’m very grateful for my health.” Do you have a favourite moment from filming the show? “One night, this giant mutant moth paid us a visit on the Schitt’s Creek set. My favourite moment was Dan ‘Terrified of Moths’ Levy’s reaction to it.” ■ Editor’s note: Hampshire showed us photo evidence of said moth. It was, in fact, a giant mutant.
