Her latest role is as Laura Turner on the new Disney Plus Series Turner and Hooch. On Nerdshala’s I’m So Obsessed Podcast Fonseca explained how the show isn’t necessarily a sequel to the original 1989 film of the same name that starred Tom Hanks.

“If you’ve never seen the original movie, it doesn’t matter, because it’s not like an immediate continuation. You don’t need to know the plot of the movie. You can just tune into our show. Josh Peck And I’m playing the kids of Tom Hanks’ character,” Fonseca said. “Since Disney Plus has the movie, you can watch it. And if you’re a fan of the movie, it’s a continuation of the slobber and the dogs’ shenanigans. And we’re back in it.”

Speaking of slobber, Hooch is played by five different dogs. Like in the 2020 Harrison Ford film The Call of the Wild, there is no Cirque du Soleil cast in a motion capture suit playing a dog. But there’s a lot of dog slobber at Turner & Hooch, and Fonseca pointed out how there’s just the right amount of slobber for certain scenes.

Other times the dogs didn’t have enough slogans, so the crew and dog handlers used fake slogans.

Although slobber can be faked, Fonseca said working with real dogs helped get the show off the ground.

“They [the dogs] Just bring honesty and sincerity to the show. It’s like medical work with horses. It’s about animals. You can’t lie. You can’t fake it around them. If they’re not calm and not feeling safe, you’re not able to shoot a scene,” said Fonseca, whose character works as a vet with parrots, puppies and hamsters, among other animals. is.
