Asked what LEGION is,

According to a description of her character Ringwald’s Mary “left Riverdale two years ago to follow her dreams,” and returns “to town in her family’s hour of need.
Interviewing Miles Brown is always a highlight – the charming young actor (dancer/rapper/basketball player) is as excited to talk BLACK-ISH as he is to quiz me about Michael Jackson songs; he’s quick with a story and clearly loves his TV family like they were his own. He’s come to think of them as his home away from home, telling me “It’s just really crazy because I feel that we’re just a big family that is going through a bunch of
