Mckenna Grace Felt Guilty For Blowing Up Ghostbusters: Afterlife's Cast Group Chat

It's always a good sign for a movie's success when the cast gets along in real life. It would be easy enough to look at a production as just another job, but during press tours, you can typically tell which casts have befriended one another and which ones merely put up with each other. 

Fortunately, it would appear that "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" fell into the former category. The predominantly young cast seem awfully chummy when giving interviews in pairs, and that enthusiasm inevitably helped lead to the film's success. The movie ultimately landed on critics' good side, earning 64% positive reviews from Rotten Tomatoes, but when it came to audience scores, the film holds up at an even more impressive 94%. On both ends of the aisle, people praised the young cast who helped make a "Ghostbusters" film feel like a Spielbergian adventure.

In interviews, the young actors play off one another flawlessly, which is evident in one particular chat with Collider. But it was star Mckenna Grace who revealed she felt self-conscious about texting too often in the cast's group chat. 

Finn Wolfhard pointed to Mckenna Grace as the most egregious texter

A group chat is a great way to stay in touch with a bunch of people all at once. Depending on who's in the group, it's also a surefire way to ensure you never again know peace from your phone with its incessant buzzing. It should come as no surprise that the young cast of "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" had a group chat. It might surprise some fans that Mckenna Grace was extremely wary of how often she partook in it.

Grace's co-star, Finn Wolfhard, couldn't even remember if they had a group chat initially, but, while talking to Collider, they both seemed to remember one crucial detail about it, namely that Logan Kim, who plays Podcast, owned an Android. So, his texts made everything green. They then tried to figure out who texted the most, with Wolfhard quickly pointing the finger at Grace. She elaborated, "I get so scared because I wanna text y'all, but then I get scared that y'all are gonna be, 'Oh my God! Texts too much!'" As much texting as Grace did, that was actually her holding back. 

At least when it comes to filming the sequel for "Ghostbusters: Afterlife," the cast will know ahead of time how much texting Grace will do. The follow-up is set to arrive in theaters on December 20, 2023, with both Grace and Wolfhard due to return
