T.V. Carpio’s first official performance as “Arachne” in SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark is one she will likely remember for the rest of her life. She emerged from the stage door a star, with a giant bouquet of roses in hand, to meet a crush of news crews and photographers. Everyone wanted to know what it felt like to land the role and if she had any trepidation in taking it on. The bouquet was from co-star Reeve Carney. It turns out T.V. goes way back with Reeve and his super-guitarist brother Zane Carney.
Onstage her character uses her powers of illusion to wreak global havoc, but off stage she is humble and demure. Earlier in the day, she told George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America,” “I have a great want to step into some big shoes and do the best I can do to service this piece.”
