NY1 News All Day: Queer teens get spotlight in new horror movie 'They/Them'


Queer teens get spotlight in new horror movie 'They/Them'

August 23, 2022

Interview with Jackie Koppell

Dreams of making it as an actor brought Darwin del Fabro to New York from Brazil. At the time, he didn’t speak English. But what a difference four years make.

He stars alongside Kevin Bacon in the new film “They/Them” and joined “News All Day” to share more about his story.

The movie is a slasher film about a group of teens at an LGBTQ conversion camp who get stalked by a masked killer.

Del Fabro says that having a mostly queer cast and crew is so important. It made him feel more comfortable and celebrated on the set, helping him to deliver a better performance.

Del Fabro loves being a New Yorker, especially because of the freedom people have to embrace their uniqueness.
