Taylor Hickson Shares What Sets 'Motherland: Fort Salem' Apart From Other Witchcraft Shows

Taylor Hickson, Ashley Nicole Williams and Jessica Sutton get in a group shot while appearing at Build by Yahoo last week!

The three actresses went on the series to chat about their new Freeform show Motherland: Fort Salem.

During their interview, Taylor opened up about how she thinks that their show differs from other shows about witchcraft.

“One thing I think Motherland does so well that no other show seems to shed light on, is just the divinity and the true meaning of what Wiccan culture,” she said.

“I think it’s so demonized. It’s such a misunderstood community, and it’s so much about femininity, and light, and supporting each other. Healing,” Taylor added.

Be sure to check out the trailer and tune in for the series premiere THIS Wednesday (March 18) on Freeform!

early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped, with women on
the front lines fighting looming terrorist threats that are strikingly familiar to our world, but with
supernatural tactics and weapons.”

At the event, Nicole said about creator Eliot Laurence (via Deadline), โ€œHe has the world in his head.” Demetria added, โ€œTo understand the power women possess and to have a man (Laurence) understand that, itโ€™s been a joy, an honor and a pleasure.โ€
