Getting to Know Hexela from Dwight in Shining Armor
BYUtv's newest original scripted adventure comedy series, Dwight in Shining Armor premieres on Monday, March 18, 2019, at 7:30 pm MT.
We're excited to introduce you to Danielle Bisutti, the actress who plays Hexela—a very mysterious character who has a potion for everything!
BYUtv: Describe the show in one word.
Danielle: I feel the show is multi-faceted. It's fun, it's magical, it's enchanting, it's also heartwarming and endearing. There's always a good message. It's so fun.
BYUtv: Tell us about the show.
Danielle: It's my favorite kind of show. I like it when situations are sort of heightened, okay, so you have this tenth-century medieval period being awoken and sort of contending and clashing with modern day, but everything is played completely serious, the stakes are high, but this is just the reality of these people, and so as I said, Hexela, my character Hexela knows how to adapt.
BYUtv: Tell us about Hexela.
Danielle: I try not to say too many things about Hexela, because we don't know from where she came, how far back in history and you're not quite sure exactly where she's going. You know she has a plan. She is a little bit of an enigma. I like to keep her that way. It's hard to get inside of her heart, although you know she has one. She takes care of herself. She knows how to. She's from the past, she's going to the future, and she has a potion for just about anything to make sure that she's always thriving in any environment.
BYUtv: What do you want viewers to take away from this show?
Danielle: I hope that this show brings you enchantment and mystery and intrigue and fun.
I hope it bonds you with your family as you're watching it. I hope that you can find a little bit of yourself in each of these characters, that you can relate to at least one of us, if not all of us in certain aspects of your own life, that we can not only entertain you, but also encourage you to find a harmonious, diplomatic way of resolving conflict in your life. I think that that's the ethos of the show.
Also, how you can create family and friendships even outside of your family, that new people in your life can be just as important and can contribute something positive.
