We were lucky enough to talk to Bravo about the show and her character, Emma Chota, a girl struggling with anorexia. When we talked to Bravo, she told us what we can expect from upcoming episodes and she even spilled details about the love triangle her character’s involved in! Find out what Bravo had to say in the interview below!
So many great things are being said about Red Band Society, so how does Bravo feel about the response to the show? She told us, “I’m so relieved and so excited to hear that people are enjoying it as much as I have enjoyed making it. It’s fun, everyone rocks! Everyone on our cast is so nice and so much fun to work with. So, filming the show is so enjoyable and the fact that people are getting as much out of it has been very exciting.”
On the show, Bravo’s character is involved in a love triangle with two other characters, Jordi Palacios (Nolan Sotillo) and Leo Roth (Charlie Rowe). We asked Bravo to spill love triangle details and she told us, “The next episode that’s coming up (tonight) 106 is the peak of this love triangle. You know we are reaching the climax, everyone’s gone you know crazy, we’ve reached the end, and Emma finally makes her decision. And I think people are going to be pleased with the outcome, or there might be a split 50/50, I’m not really sure.”

What’s it like filming with these two boys? Bravo revealed, “Charlie Rowe and Nolan Sotillo are great guys. I love them both to death. They’re both, like I said, fantastic people, and getting to spend time with them has been really fun. Charlie and I are very good friends, so playing the whole romantic thing can be awkward in the best way possible. But the show is always fun and we always have a good laugh during those scenes. We’re like, ‘How long is this hug supposed to last? Like honestly, do people hug that long?’ They’re like, ‘Yes Ciaria, yeah Charlie, people who have a romantic interest in each other do hug that long.’ We’re like, ‘Alright, let’s go for it, this is gonna be a doozy.'”
Also in the upcoming episodes, the show gets to know Bravo’s character a little bit better. Her character is going through a lot, and viewers will get a chance to learn more about her. Bravo told us, “As the season continues on, we get more into the psychological part of her disorder. So, we get to see her kind of break down and how this disease, how anorexia is really affecting her emotionally, physically, and mentally. So, I’m very excited for everyone to see that.”
