A Fun Interview with Samantha Hanks of Happily Ever Avatar

July 17, 2020

“The other thing I appreciated about this experience was that these people fell in love not based on what they looked like, or how much money they had, or the car they drove, or where they lived, or who their friends were. When they fell in love, it was based on the common love of these games and just talking to each other — hearing each other’s voices for days, months, or years. That’s such a pure love”.

– Says Samantha Hanks, the executive vice president of casting and talent relations at Magical Elves (production company of Happily Ever Avatar in partnership with Stage 13) in her interview with Digital Trends.

Finding love can be hard. Finding love online can be harder. But not if you know how to play the game right. Happily Ever Avatar follows three couples that met while playing online video games: League of Legends, World of Warcraft, and Elder Scrolls. All three couples are at totally different stages in their relationships, but follow along and see how they battle, level-up, and win! (Streaming now only on HBO Max).
