Ginger Minj’s time on the set of Hocus Pocus 2 became an opportunity to learn from Bette Midler, who has been a star on stage and screen for some six decades. Minj recently spoke to Cinemablend about her close-up in the new film and how Midler stepped in when she realized something was wrong. “I’ll never forget that it was 4 a.m.,” she recalled. “And they’re like, ‘Ok, let’s line up for the shot.’ And Bette Midler just says: “Stop! Bring us the monitor.” So they bring the monitor and she says, “No. The light has to be moved, the camera has to be moved. It’s not good for her.” It looked good to me, girl, I don’t know any different.”
Minj added that Midler then took them to the trailer while adjustments were made and when they looked at the monitor a second time everything looked better, from the angles to the lighting. “She said, ‘I’ll take care of you this time, but you have to learn to take care of yourself in these things,’ Minj said. According to Entertainment Weekly, Minj is continuing to build her small-screen credits this holiday season with “Huluween Dragstravaganza,” which begins streaming on Hulu on October 1, 2022.
Hocus Pocus 2 is now streaming on Disney+.
