An immersive experience
When I say this show is an immersive experience is because while watching it, I felt like getting into a video game in which y played an important role. Pretty cool! Don’t you think?
Of course, in Vanity Teen, we love to keep all of you updated with the biggest productions nowadays. We want you to be part of this immersive experience, so we talked with T’Nia Miller and JJ Feild about this show for you to come closer to The Peripheral experience.
T’Nia Miller and JJ Feild: humor, kindness, and compassion
On the occasion of The Peripheral premier, I had a conversation with T’Nia Miller and JJ Feild, two of the actors who star in The Peripheral and, to be honest, my two favorite characters from the show. T’Nia Miller portrays the sly Cherise, and JJ Feild is the almost bombastic Lev, but you will find out more about them by watching the series available on Prime Video everywhere.
Both actors were hilarious, and while we spoke about The Peripheral, they showed humor, kindness, and compassion, not only talked about those topics, they let me appreciate the best of their humanity. Therefore, I invite you to keep reading what they say in this exclusive interview for Vanity Teen.
JV: Let us have The Peripheral in mind. So, according to you, which aspects of your humanity technology will never replace?
T’NM: Compassion. Kindness and compassion.
JJF: Humor! Sense of humor. (Laughs).
T’NM: Technology can go off humorous when it doesn’t work. (Both laugh).
Technology cannot replace any human aspect. It can be supportive but never replace humanity.
JV: Do you think young audiences would love The Peripheral?
JJF: They are going to love it! (Laughs!)
T’NM: That’s for sure the answer. (Laughs). They are going to love it.
I think The Peripheral is going to surprise them in many unexpected ways. I know they are going to be gripped and would like to know what happens next.
JJF: Everyone will be intrigued and curious.
T’NM: Definitely, the Peripheral is thought-provoking.
JV: Sure! I enjoyed the show. And that motivated the first question because, despite all the action, great visuals, and acting, The Peripheral reminded me that we all need that part of humanity we do not find outside ourselves. You know! It is like thinking that the future might be awesome, but humans will be human. Do you get me?
T’NM: Yes, definitely. Humans will be human. And it does not matter if we talk about one hundred years ago or two hundred years in the future; we will have the same strives. And that is what makes us such a beautiful specie and the most terrifying species in the world.
JJF: And good tailoring will last a lifetime. Right? (Laughs).
T’NM: Right? (Both laugh).
JV: Which advice would you give young people who enjoy your job?
JJF: If this is what you want to do, it has to be, no equivalents, the only thing you want to do. And also, get used to hearing no a million times, and wait for that one: yes!
T’NM: And don’t give up! Do not give up!

Indeed, The Peripheral is an immersive experience you would not want to miss. So, take your time and enjoy this new streaming series because it has all the elements to become your new weekly obsession. It has action, intense mystery, a great cast, jaw-dropping moments, and magnificent visuals. It is pure 21st-century entertainment.
However, since humans will always be human, I kindly invite you to keep in mind the message of T’Nia Miller and JJ Feild during the conversation we had to talk about their new show: technology will not replace humanity. So, real life is our space to show kindness, stay humorous, and be compassionate with all those who surround us.
