Roxy Astor Meets With GLOW…the Netflix Version

VANAPHASE™ the Vanadium powerhouse!

Original GLOW GIrl, Roxy Astor meets Cherry Bang (Sydelle Noel) at the GLOW Panel and Q&A at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

As much as people love drama, there was nothing but love Friday night when Original GLOW Girl, Roxy Astor attended the Netflix GLOW Q&A and Panel at the Saban Media Center at the Television Academy in North Hollywood, CA.

Cast members on the show based loosely on Astor and her fellow wrestler’s lives discussed the series and those that inspired their performances. Once GLOW dropped on Netflix, the reaction of the original GLOW Girls wasn’t the most positive as they were too close to the real stories where characterized versions of real events mixed with added folktales for must-see-tv made things difficult in answering questions from family, friends and fans of what was real and what was fiction.

Once they were able to take a step back, the originals were able to accept the series for what it is, a fun, dramedy loosely based on their lives, allowing them to answer questions of various stories from the 80s and the 2010s televised version.

Astor, who has hosted four AfterGLOW fan events, including three cruises embraces the new take. At the Q&A, Astor stood up and confessed in a packed house, “I am an Original GLOW Girl from the ’80s and I want to let you know that we are all proud of you and what you are doing.”

Original GLOW GIrl, Roxy Astor catches up with Machu Picchu (Britney Young) at the GLOW Panel and Q&A at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

The crowd gave her most commonly referred to as a, “Road Warrior Pop.” A Road Warrior Pop is the loudest cheers of the night, even outshining the main eventers, in this case, the Netflix cast of GLOW.

“I didn’t expect that reaction, all I wanted was for them to know that we were proud of them. Britney (Young) was in tears when I told her Fiji (the late Emily Dole) would be proud of her,” said Astor, about Young’s character Machu Picchu.

GLOW’s current incarnation, which featured Young, Sydelle Noel, Marc Maron, Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin, along with creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, with casting director, Jennifer Euston answered questions regarding the coincidence of picking Chavo Gurrero Jr. as the head trainer, when his uncle Mondo was the trainer for the original GLOW Girls in the 1980s, to just how physical they had to get on set.

Rumor has it, the new season of GLOW, which drops this summer will not only focus on more wrestling but also the classic skits that made the original GLOW cheeky, humorous and tad bit risque.
