“I believe in ghosts but not the way most people do. I don’t think it’s a scary, scary, ghost thing. I mean ghost encounters are very common. Mine happened in the neighborhood in broad daylight, not in a haunted house or with any scary vibes. I saw a very old lady standing there. And she was very nice with these thick glasses. And then, just like that, she was gone. It wasn’t scary and she wasn’t threatening. She seemed a little lost. — Constance Woo
“I grew up hearing a lot of ghost stories because my father worked at Shakespeare and Company in Massachusetts. He had company in Edith Wharton’s old mansion, and it was notoriously haunted. There was a man who said he felt a hand pressing on his neck. My father had the experience of waking up in the middle of the night to find his lamp extended to the edge of the cord, the light on and his books rearranged but no one around. I grew up hearing this and said, ‘Are you sure it’s a ghost?’ Then as I got older, I thought maybe I’d be an actor doing crazy things in the middle of the night [them] outside So, I don’t know. i don’t know It may be true, it may not be true, but the amount of stories I’ve heard about strange things makes you think something is going on here. – Finn Wittrock
“I believe in ghosts. I have a couple of supernaturals [experiences]. I have two Ouija boards and I got a warning from a Ouija board once in college about something that happened years later when I got another Ouija board. It was all interconnected and gave me chills and still gives me chills today when I retell the story. But there is something at work above and beyond what is happening here. I am a firm believer. ” – Anna camp
“Now this question has been asked a few times and I am asking [Anna], my position is not as strong as it used to be, but no, if pressed, I will say that I do not believe in ghosts. However, I don’t go to certain places. Once when I was alone in the house where I grew up, I thought I heard a ghost in the basement and I was completely terrified. It was probably the water pipes, but my mind immediately went to something more terrifying. I’m kind of a cat person, you know what I mean? But yes, no, intellectually I don’t believe in ghosts, but physically, I run first. – Adam Rothenberg
