Jameela Jamil described her character Titania as both “annoying” and “unselfconscious” in a recent interview with Screen Rant.
Titania stands out because I think she’s the most annoying of them, actually. I think she almost doesn’t need to use her strength; she could just annoy you to death. And I think that is a superpower that we haven’t really utilized enough.
She’s also very glamorous. I like the fact that she’s a bit curvy, and I like the fact that she’s completely unselfconscious. She’s completely unselfconscious and so, so weird. We’ll see.
Ghosts has released a “this year on...” trailer for its second season premiering on September 29.
