The Cast of 'Fate: The Winx Saga' Plays 'How Well Do You Know Your Co-Star?'

The Winx Saga stars revealed several juicy tidbits, including the surprising person Abigail Cowen will name her children after.

If you’re missing the teenage fairies of Netflix’s addictive new show, Fate: The Winx Saga, then we have just the tonic for you. The show's cast, Abigail Cowen, Danny Griffin, Elisha Applebaum, and Precious Mustapha–who play students receiving monster-fighting training at the Alfea school—sat down with Marie Claire to show how close they got while filming the highly binge-able series.

In our trivia challenge, “How Well Do You Know Your Co-Star,” the young stars took turns answering questions about everything from their favorite snacks to their hidden talents and their most memorable auditions. (Elisha, do you sing “Africa” by Toto at every audition?!?)

Cowen even revealed that Bob Ross is her personal hero. She described him as her “all-time favorite, iconic, not only painter but person, as a whole.” She continued, “I low-key wish he had been my mentor my whole life. I will name all of my kids after him. I often pray to his holy name. And, I think about him twice daily.” I mean, same.

You can stream season 1 of Fate: The Winx Saga on Netflix now.
