‘Blue’s Clues & You’ gets a second season and a Filipino ‘lola’
Josh De la Cruz began his tenure as the host of the rebooted popular Nickelodeon children’s show ‘Blue’s Clues & You’ last November. The network has already ordered a second season.
The second season will follow host Josh and puppy Blue on new adventures with friends old and new. The new season will feature appearances by two former hosts, Steve (Steve Burns) and Joe (Donovan Patton).
Carolyn Fe, who has been cast as the new Filipina character Lola, is a veteran actress but is better known in Canada for her singing in the genres of jazz and rhythm & blues.
Fe made the journey from the Philippines to Canada with her parents at a very young age. She has been a professional dancer, choreographing for her own professional dance company, and even owned and operated a dance school offering classical ballet, tap, jazz and aerobics. She has also made many acting appearances and has her own theatre production company.
A couple of recent projects brought her back to her Filipino roots. She had a role in “Hilot Means Healer,” a Toronto production of the play by Jo SiMalaya Alcampo; and in 2019 she released a blues album, “Sugat Ko” (“My Wound”).
