Teenagers With Attitude (and Spandex): Behind the Scenes of the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers"

Playing Favorites

Just because the cast was close doesn't mean they didn't play favorites. Well, at least some of them did. Only a few players dared to single out their favorite Ranger.

Levy: If I had to pick the color that I like most, I'd have to say the Black Ranger. I wear nothing but black. But a favorite Ranger? No. I had a lot of fun when both the Green and the White Ranger were played by Tommy. We were in Australia at the time, shooting the movie. We went to Old Sydney, which is a replica of Sydney from the 1800s, where people are still walking around dressed like they're a tourist attraction. We rented the whole place and I took the Rangers back in time. It was fun to work with two Tommys—one good and one bad. It made writing a little more exciting.

 

I liked Billy. He had two sides. He was the nerdy, bumbling, comic relief kind of guy, but then he was also the Blue Ranger who was able to kick ass and take names if he needed to. —David Fielding

 

Wasserman: Amy Jo was gorgeous. I really like brunettes. She'd have to be the one. She didn't have an ego, wasn't acting like a movie star. She was the type of person where you could've said, "Hey, you wanna go grab a few beers?" and she would've gone, "Hell yeah, let's go." She always seemed nice. Thuy Trang, she was an absolute doll. The guys, for the most part, were very stuck in their parts.

Johnson: Trini! I've actually watched a few episodes recently with my daughter and Thuy's confidence and funny way about her is so beautiful. She lit up the screen.

Goodson: I liked Billy because he was smart. Of course, I like Tommy because I was able to make him bad for awhile. I also love Zack because he’s such a sweetheart. It’s hard because I know Walter now. And Amy Jo! I’m going to mention all of them, but they were all sweet. The tragedy of Trini—Thuy—is still with us. She was a sweetheart.

Fielding: I liked Billy. He had two sides. He was the nerdy, bumbling, comic relief kind of guy, but then he was also the Blue Ranger who was able to kick ass and take names if he needed to.
