7:03 am
spots are overwhelmed. 37 states are seeing an increase in hospital admissions. >> victor oquendo is in miami with the very latest where testing lines have been a big issue. good morning, victor. >> reporter: good morning, michael. there is a huge demand for testing and that's leading to a strain on labs statewide. this is the front of the line for testing here at hard rock stadium in miami gardens, but let's take you up to our live drone at the back of the line. it's about a mile away. you can see the line there. people started arriving around 4:00 this morning eager to get tested. this as we await encouraging news about a possible vaccine. this morning, a possible breakthrough from oxford university expected to release potentially promising early results from their covid vaccine currently in human trials. >> it's not really a race against other vaccines. it's a race against time. >> reporter: the vaccine reportedly showing a positive immune response protecting against covid-19 in phase 1 of
7:04 am
its trial. blood samples and those given a dose reportedly showing an increased presence of antibodies and t-cells that might stop the novel coronavirus in its tracks. >> the truth is, we don't know when we'll have a final result on how well the vaccine will work. it's likely to be months rather than weeks but said we were aiming for september/october time. i still think that's a realistic aspiration, but we can't be certain. >> reporter: the hopeful news, coming as many hospitals across the country are nearing capacity. in hidalgo county, texas, patients are waiting up to ten hours before an initial exam. in the first three months of the outbreak they saw 12 deaths. one day this week, seeing 22 deaths before noon. >> in the 30-plus years that i've been a physician, i've never seen anything like this before. it's very difficult when you are putting your mom's best friend in a body bag. it's very difficult when you're putting your sixth grade schoolteacher on mechanical support. >> reporter: in other parts of
7:05 am
the country people are finding it difficult to even find a test. ryan devlin flying from california to idaho for testing. >> i feel like i'm taking a risk, definitely, but we're taking a risk every day that we can't get an appointment and whether we can get a test and can't get results. >> reporter: on sunday with thousands of new cases, los angeles mayor eric garcetti warning of another possible stay-at-home order admitting they probably opened too soon. >> i think we're on the brink of that. we have to be as vigilant right now as we were the first day. >> reporter: in florida, the current epicenter in the u.s., less than 20% of icu beds are available statewide. john place, a father of three, spent 17 days on a ventilator after the disease spread through his entire household. his family didn't think he'd survive. >> you know, really and truly i don't think we ever did. in a million years did we think it's going to really hit home like this and be this bad. >> reporter: john's wife says they all tested positive after his 21-year-old son tested
7:06 am
positive, despite promising he'd take the proper precautions contracted it at a friend's house. >> they're not understanding it they walk out again and infect somebody else and bring it home, especially if they live in a multigenerational home, other people aren't going to be so lucky. >> reporter: the lines here at hard rock stadium have been so long every single day that officials are now asking people to not come out so early to stagger out testing times. one of the first countries to welcome back visitors, the bahamas now reversing course closing its airports and seaports to the united states. one last note, a realistic time line for the vaccine early 2021, whit. >> all right, victor, thanks so much. for more on that let's bring in the director of the harvard global health institute, dr. ashish jha. thank you so much for joining us. i want to go back to that point that victor just made about the potential breakthrough on a vaccine. a "lancet" study out today
7:07 am
reportedly will show it might provide a double defense against coronavirus. volunteers showing both antibodies and t-cells. tell us what that means and how significant is this development. >> yes, good morning and thanks so much for having me on. you know, i think a lot of us are very excited about how quickly the vaccine development is moving. there are multiple parts of your immune system, but two major parts that we think about. one we call humoral immunity, which is the antibodies that your body forms, and the other is cellular, the t-cells and both important and what we're finding and hoping for is that the vaccine would elicit both responses, and at least based on the preliminary news releases -- we'll have to look at the study -- it suggests that this vaccine may be eliciting both which could be really good news for how effective the vaccine might be. >> that so-called double defense that people have been talking about. i do want to discuss the timing, though, of all of this. this particular vaccine, some researchers suggesting that it may even be available in september. give us a reality check. is that possible or overly optimistic? >> boy, we'd all love that, right? wouldn't that be amazing if it were available in september or
7:08 am
october? it's very hard for me to see how we get there. and look, i'm trying to be as optimistic as possible. i think realistically it's early 2021. obviously we would all love to be wrong, but there are so many steps that have to go between now and making sure the vaccine is effective, that it's also safe, that we can manufacture enough doses, that everybody can get it. so i just -- i don't know how we get there that fast. >> it's difficult to follow these time lines with all the trials, as well. i do want to change subjects because one of the biggest debates happening in this country is over schools re-opening. i'm a parent. everybody wants to get kids back in the classroom. there is a new study out of south korea that suggests children and teenagers over the age of 10 are at least as contagious as adults. how solid is that research and what are the implications here? >> yeah, so i'm a dad of three kids and all of whom i'm desperate to get back to school this fall. it's probably the best study to date, and it does suggest that
7:09 am
at least older kids transmit in ways that it looks more like adult transmission. it does make it sort of -- there have been people who argue kids never transmit or very rarely, therefore, it's safe. my general feeling is, if we can get virus levels way down in the community, we can open up schools, but counting on kids now to not transmit the disease as the reason why is not going to be enough. we really have to suppress the virus in the community. >> dr. jha, thanks for your time as always. we appreciate it. cecilia. we head to washington where lawmakers are pushing for billions more in funding to help fight this pandemic, but the trump administration wants to keep extra funding for testing, tracing and the cdc out of the next stimulus package. this, of course, as the president gave that interview to fox news, explosive at times, head scratching at others. mary bruce has more from washington this morning. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. this was a contentious interview. the president pushed on his inaccuracies and the lack of a
7:10 am
national plan. the president, though, pushed right back but with a litany of false claims, eager to move past this crisis, the president continues to downplay its severity. >> i will be right eventually. you know, i said it's going to disappear. i'll say it again. it's going to disappear, and i'll be right. >> does that discredit you? >> reporter: as infections rise and his support plummets, president trump on defense and disputing the facts. falsely claiming in a combative fox news interview that the u.s. has one of the lowest mortality rates in the world. >> well, we're going to take a look. >> we had 900 deaths in a single day. >> we will take a look. >> this week. >> ready? >> you can check it out. >> will you please get me the mortality rate? >> reporter: trump stopping the interview to question data showing the u.s. has the eighth highest mortality rate, roughly tied with brazil. the president insisting increased testing is making the outbreak appear worse than it is. >> many of those cases are young people that would heal in a day. they have the sniffles and put
7:11 am
it down as a test. >> reporter: ignoring that young people can spread it to the more vulnerable now threatening to withhold funding from schools that don't open in the fall. >> we're not going to fund them. we're not going to give them money if they're not going to school, if they don't open. >> reporter: do you know where the money goes? it goes overwhelmingly to disadvantaged kids and children with disabilities. why don't you spend more so the schools -- >> chris, let the schools open. >> reporter: trump was also grilled on his claim that schools teach children to hate our country. >> 1492, columbus discovered america. you know we grew up. you grew up. that's what they learn. now they want to make it the 1619 project. where did that come from? what does it represent? >> it's slavery. >> that's what they're saying. >> reporter: with joe biden leading trump by double digits the president is questioning his rival's competenccompetency. he is challenging biden to take the same cognitive test trump bragged about passing. >> i took the test, too, when i heard you passed it.
7:12 am
>> how did you do? >> it's not the hardest test. the picture, it's an elephant. >> no, you see, that's all misrepresentation. >> that's what was on the web. >> now, according to our latest poll, biden now has a 15-point lead nationally and a 20-point edge when it comes to trust in handling the pandemic. now, looking ahead, the president wouldn't say whether he will accept the results of the election in november. the biden campaign was quick to respond to that saying, quote, they are perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the white house. michael. >> all right, thank you so much. and now to that breaking news overnight. a deadly shooting at the home of a federal judge in new jersey. her son killed, her husband critically wounded after a man dressed as a fedex driver came to their door and opened fire. stephanie ramos has the very latest. >> reporter: overnight, a manhunt for the man officials believe opened fire on a federal judge's home, killing her son and wounding her husband at the front door. >> be advised you have two victims. >> reporter: sources tell abc
7:13 am
news the gunman may have been posing as a fedex delivery driver when he arrived at the home of u.s. district court of new jersey judge esther salas at 5:00 p.m. sunday evening, investigators say when her 20-year-old son daniel opened the door, the shooter shot him, killing daniel and hitting his father, a prominent criminal defense attorney multiple times. >> just wonderful, wonderful people. this is an absolute shock. >> reporter: judge salas has presided over many high-profile cases like "real housewives" star teresa giudice's trial. and most recently, she was assigned to a case involving jeffrey epstein. police have not identified any suspects or a potential motive. the fbi and u.s. marshals are investigating this morning. along with multiple other agencies. sources say salas has received threats in the past, but don't believe any have been made recently. >> it's something for every
7:14 am
citizen of the united states who cares about law and order to be concerned about, not just our town. >> reporter: judge salas' son daniel was her only child and a freshman at catholic university in d.c. here in the neighborhood there are officers posted. you can see the yellow crime scene tape in front of the house right now, and authorities say they are still trying to find a motive and also that lone gunman. whit? >> disturbing case, stephanie ramos for us, thank you. now to another night of protests in portland, oregon, and the mayor pushing back against the white house's response demanding federal agents leave immediately, and blaming them for an increase in violence and vandalism. kayna whitworth is in portland with the very latest. kayna, good morning. >> reporter: whit, good morning. those protests last night mark 53 straight nights of protests here in portland, and the violence has been escalating. the mayor says that's because of the presence of federal law enforcement agencies sent in by the president who operate without any official markings.
7:15 am
have gone so far to pull protesters into unmarked vehicles and deny them due process. he says it's tantamount to kidnapping and he wants them ouout now, as do the protesters. now, the mayor also adds he believes this is all a ploy by the president to gain some political ground and, cecilia, he's tweeting out that he is trying to help portland, not hurt it. cecilia. >> exactly. okay, kayna, thank you. we're now going to turn to the tributes pouring in for the congressman and legendary civil rights leader john lewis. hundreds gathering overnight for a candlelight vigil there in atlanta. lewis died friday at the age of 80 after six decades at the forefront of the battle for racial equality and social justice in this country. linsey davis has more on his remarkable life and legacy. >> get out there and push and pull until we redeem the soul of america. >> reporter: his fiery speech, dogged passion and boundless courage and commitment to civil
7:16 am
rights made congressman john lewis an icon. >> when you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, say something. do something. get in trouble, good trouble, necessary trouble. >> reporter: an outpouring of tributes for a legend including from barack obama, who credited lewis with helping to make his presidency possible, later awarding him the presidential medal of freedom in 2011 and now sharing these words, not many of us get to live to see our own legacy play out in such a meaningful, remarkable way. john lewis did. and oprah recounting a conversation she had with the former freedom rider just last week writing that she told him, thank you for your courage leading the fight for freedom. my life as it is would not have been possible without you. as a college student, he helped lead the fight against racial inequality by participating in multiple protests. in 1963, he was just 23.
7:17 am
the youngest speaker at the march on washington right alongside martin luther king jr. >> my friends, let us not forget that we are involved in a serious social revolution. >> reporter: two years later he would lead peaceful protesters across the edmund pettus bridge. fighting for the right to vote. they were met with brutal force by state troopers. lewis, bloodied and with a fractured skull. he would continue his fight as a u.s. representative, known as the conscience of congress. his last public appearance just six weeks ago fittingly taking a bold stance at black lives matter square in washington, d.c. >> john was an activist until his body gave out. to lose him now i just feel a profound unshakable sadness that we won't have him in this country at a time that we need healing and we need love and we need each other. >> reporter: for "good morning america," linsey davis, abc news, new york. >> a life lived to advance others.

7:37 am
indicator of how your pancreatic cancer is progressing. eight weeks ago, the numbers were at about 3,500. now they're below 100, so i'm going in the right direction. the doctors have said they have never seen a chart like mine because there are peaks. i said what do you mean you don't see that that often? what do you usually see? they usually see it going up. i'm a bit of an anomaly. >> from 3,500 to 100 sounds phenomenal. >> yeah. >> to me, right? >> yeah. >> okay, forgive me, i'm not saying we should pop champagne but this all sounds like good news to me. >> yeah. i'm on the right track. >> you buried the lede, my man, this is all good stuff, is it not? >> well, as i mentioned earlier, there are good days and there are bad days. >> okay. >> so i take into account the bad days. >> oh, my goodness gracious.

7:39 am
affairs in order. and i know exactly what i need to do, but i have yet to do it. so there's something in the back of my mind that says, whoa, hold on a second, maybe, maybe you're going to be around for a little while longer. >> you are 80 going strong, 36 years on the show. >> yep. >> and all you've gone through and you look great. you sound great. >> here i am, folks. eat me up. >> his memoir, "the answer is...: reflections on my life" is available tomorrow and the reason, guys, he said he had offers over the years, he decided to write it for two reasons. one, there is an unauthorized biography coming out soon he wanted to get ahead of and, two, money. he got a sizable advance and all the sales of the book, all going to charity. he is writing the book so he can give the money away. that is classic trebek for you. >> no doubt. >> absolutely. >> great interview, t.j.

"the washington post" calls these pandemic pods the 2020 version of a one-room schoolhouse, smaller classes with a private teacher. some parents now leaning in to a new and often pricier strategy for learning. this morning, the desperate search for a solution to school leading some parents to consider so-called pandemic pods. >> so the idea of pods is not about eliminating risk, but it's about managing risk. you would -- your children would get together with a limited and stable set of other people on a regular basis. that provides some socialization and provides some structure. >> reporter: gathering small groups of students and paying for a private teacher. >> our goal is to help parents and caregivers and teachers figure out something that's going to work. >> reporter: lian chang
8:17 am
co-created the facebook group pandemic pods and micro schools. >> the situation suddenly escalated a couple of weeks ago when school districts starting signaling in a much more serious way that they were not going to be able to physically open the doors to children in the fall. how can we get together with other parents to try to help solve these problems together, share resources and ideas, connect with other people? >> reporter: but this approach can come with a high price tag. one tutoring company proposing a cost of $350 per week per child for two hours of instruction a day. some education experts worry the high cost could be prohibitive for many students, reinforcing existing inequities in education. >> parents should have the options and the choices to do whatever they think is best for their children. we've always known that wealthy families have lots of choice in the school choice debate. >> reporter: chang says these pods are a way to mitigate risks, and give kids a chance to socialize and learn together, and she says their group is
8:18 am
working to ensure inclusivity. >> a lot of people are looking at subsidizing the participation of a lower income child by having every family who can afford pay a little bit more, 20% more, you know, and that can make it possible to include a child who otherwise wouldn't have been included. >> reporter: experts say this pandemic is highlighting a need to ensure that many students are not left behind. >> we need to learn as much about how this whole entire infrastructure affects children. everything from, you know, food access to health access, to housing access, to what it means for children to be in households of essential workers. >> reporter: and many parents have been initiating these pandemic pods over the summer to try to create a safer way for their kids to socialize. now lian says her facebook group has more than 8,000 followers trying to come up with different models to include students of all backgrounds for the upcoming school year. michael. >> thank you so much, erielle.
8:19 am
and we're going to check in with educator and author rachel simmons. rachel, thank you so much for joining us this morning, and we know a lot of parents, they don't have a lot of resources to hire a teacher, so how can they work with one another to create their own pods? >> well, you know, this is something that i'm thinking about for my own family. i'm talking with a group of parents, we're thinking about each taking one day to work with the kids and the parent that might be better at science which is not so much me might do that work and the parent who is better at spelling and writing which would be me would kind of focus on those lessons, and the benefits are great for us because we can mostly go back to work, our kids get a social connection, and honestly, it's a lot harder for our kids to be snarky to a teacher that's not their own parent. >> you could be right about that. what are some of the out of the box methods that parents should consider to make this work? >> right, well, some of my friends are working traditional working hours so what i think is possible for us is to teach maybe from 5:00 to 7:00 at night over pizza. it doesn't have to be during the
8:20 am
typical school hours. we're also thinking about helping our kids pursue what they know and what they're interested in and what like we know how to teach so that we're helping our kids stay calm because the point is for our kids to stay invested. we also want our kids to try to get outside right now. take advantage of the warm weather. they can track birds. they can draw pictures of what they see, older kids can interview members of the community about what's happening. all of this is learning. the goal is to keep them engaged. it's not perfect. >> and these pandemic pods, they're not cheap so finances, of course, come into play so if parents need outside help what are some affordable resources? >> well, i'm thinking, for example, we've got older siblings who have a lot of skills and also our children are often more likely to get sort of riveted by older siblings than they are by adults and also those siblings have skills to teach that our kids are interested in learning and have college students, high school students, plenty of students around who won't be free but they'll be cheaper than a
8:21 am
professional teacher. >> the things i learned from my older siblings i probably should not have learned but thank you, thank you so much. we really appreciate your time. whit. >> all right, michael, thank you. we are turning now to actress hayden panettiere coming forward about domestic violence she says she suffered at the hands of her ex-boyfriend and how she plans to use her voice to empower others. adrienne bankert is here with that story. adrienne, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you too, whit. we're told that she's sharing her story with hopes that it will help someone else facing emotional abuse or physical violence. she's lived her whole life in the spotlight known for her role on abc's "nashville." >> it's been a rough year. i'm just so grateful that y'all are still here for me. >> reporter: and as a cheerleader with superpowers in "heroes." >> turn on the camera. >> reporter: hayden panettiere now coming forward to share her story about alleged domestic violence at the hands of an ex-boyfriend. the actress sharing on her new instagram account that she hopes her story will empower others in

ingredients in most sunscreens. what are we looking at? >> well, first of all, there are two main categories, the physical or mineral sunscreen ingredients in sunscreens, and then there are the chemical sunscreen ingredients. these two studies focused on some of the most popular chemical ingredients including things like avobenzone, oxybenzone and octinoxate, and they found those ingredients are absorbed through the skin and enter the bloodstream. now the physical or mineral blockers, there's only two of those. those are zinc oxide and titanium oxide. those are not thought to be absorbed into the bloodstream. >> two agencies that represent sunscreen manufactures. here's what they have to say. quote, they are committed to continue working in partnership with the fda to support the safety of sunscreen active ingredients. but i think the big question, dr. bowe, is, what could potentially be dangerous about them entering the bloodstream? >> as of now we don't know what
8:26 am
effects this absorption has on human health, right? so these subjects, they applied sunscreen to 75% of their body. every two hours and the researchers found concerning levels some of which persisted for weeks so what does this mean? there are preliminary studies show some of these like oxybenzone can have hormonal effects, and in a laboratory setting, they can mimic estrogen. we don't know what that means for humans, right? more studies are needed. >> okay, dr. bowe, we always appreciate your help in the mornings. coming up, the very funny patricia heaton will join us live. patricia heaton will join us live.

news updates in about 30 minutes, you can always find the la ♪ honey i'm good, i could have ♪ honey i'm good, i could have another ♪ welcome back. our next guest is an emmy winning actress who made us laugh as the lovable mom in "everybody loves raymond" and "the middle". >> we always love having her. now patricia heaton is out with a new book called "your second act: inspiring stories of inspiration." good morning to you, friend. >> hi, good morning. it's early here in l.a. but happy to be here. >> we're so glad you're with us. okay, so let's talk quarantine because just before all of this happened, we know you were kind of just getting settled into being an empty nester and now here we are with this new reality. how are things going? how have things changed? >> well, i was producing a movie in oklahoma city with two of my sons and my husband directing,
8:31 am
and we got shut down with five days left to film, and we came back and i went from nobody in the house to three of my sons coming home and we're like right back to like when they were in the sixth grade and i'm cooking and, you know, scheduling and thank goodness they're not little. they're out of school, so i didn't have to deal with that. >> you make them do dishes. >> i've been having fun having everybody home. >> you can put the older kids to work. that's for sure. patricia, i want to ask you though, how about your sitcom characters? how do you think they would have done during quarantine lockdown with the family? >> well, like i said, i mean, if it were deborah barone with those little kids at home and having to homeschool with ray, it would have been a nightmare, but it would have been the same with frankie heck. i think it would have been a disaster for both of them. good thing they're much older. >> with that, which sitcom family would you want to quarantine with? >> well, the folks on "modern
8:32 am
family" seem to have a really lovely life, so i'm loving that, but then "the goldbergs" are a lot of fun, and wendi mcclendon would be a great mom to be taking care of you during a pandemic. >> we want to congratulate you on your book, because -- that is a huge thing to pull off finishing a book and "your second act," the timing could not be more perfect for a title like this. what is it about the timing on why this works right now? >> you know, i was doing a show, "carol's second act" when this idea came up about others and how they've changed their lives, and that show was canceled and so i'm also figuring out what the next thing to do is, so you're right. the timing is very good, but a lot of people have either, because of the pandemic have lost their job or it's given them time to think about how they've been spending their life and maybe rethinking what they want to do and this book is stories of inspiration, of
8:33 am
people who have overcome obstacles to really remake their lives, their future and to succeed and it's in all different ways and people of different ages. it's as small as a guy who was an industrial carpet salesman becoming an actor and it's as big as a couple who were working at a grocery store having their own farm to table restaurant and bed and breakfast, so it's a lot of different stories of -- and different ways that you can come at reinventing yourself. >> all timely stories that we're all going through right now as well. you get very personal in this book talking about being in your 60s and you say that that's actually the best time of your life. why is that? >> you know, i think we're becoming healthier and healthier. there's so many more -- so much more available to us for ourselves physically, mentally,
8:34 am
spiritually and also when you get to be 60 you just don't care anymore. you know, you kind of see that you have this finite amount of time left and you're not going to waste it doing stuff that isn't important and we realize with this pandemic that life is precious. our friends and family are really important to us and so you just really want to spend time doing the things that are making you happy and that can help the world. >> that is absolutely true and you recently posted a photo of your younger self on instagram so what will you go back and tell that young girl now? >> yeah, you know, i think i went through a lot. my mother died when i was 12. i went through a lot of emotional distress for a long time and i think i would tell that little person that everything is going to be okay, everything is going to be fine. you just got to keep on keeping on and, you know that phrase, it gets better, that's absolutely
8:35 am
true and it's something to hang on to. >> well, patricia, we appreciate you waking up early to join us. hopefully your sons will wake up and cook you breakfast this morning to help you out. >> it's not going to happen. >> not going to happen. i tried. i tried. we appreciate you and patricia yeah's book, "your second act: inspiring stories of transformation" is out tomorrow. we have a surprise that will make this awesome little kid's monday. you don't want to miss it. we'll be right back with more "gma." ♪ go, go it's more than just fast. it keeps all your devices running smoothly. with built-in security that protects your kids... matter what they're up to. it protects your info... ...and gives you 24/7 peace of mind...

8:40 am
think outside the box and he has such a good heart, and such an old soul, and such a good head on his shoulders, and i just hope he feels fulfilled inside and is enjoying this. this is such a special thing he's doing. >> absolutely, no question about that. nicholas, i have a question for you. what is it about airplanes that you love so much? >> what do you love about airplanes, bud? you're on. >> i love airplanes because they let you travel. i love traveling because i love going to the beach and exploring different places that i never been to. >> that is the best answer, nicholas. nadine, i want to ask you, you want nicholas to send a message just to his brothers who are there right there with you but also to other kids who might be watching this right now. >> absolutely. i want him to inspire other kids to get creative and to use this time wisely. you know, we're all home. we don't have a choice as
8:41 am
parents, but i really want to hold on to this time because it's sacred and it's special. look, i have three boys under 6. it's crazy and it's chaotic but the time that we're spending together, it's something that we'll never get back and it's something extremely, extremely special. so i want him to inspire other kids to use this time wisely, and i hope that other parents will also use this time wisely to teach their kids something that they wouldn't normally learn in school. it's about skills that you could teach your kids that they won't learn in the classroom so that's where we're at and having fun doing it. literally our playroom is an assembly line. we all put the planes together. right, dude? >> uh-huh. >> it's a lot of fun. every time he gets an order his face lights up and what's so special is people are good and we need that reminder right now because people are supporting a 6-year-old who is making planes out of popsicle sticks and you know what? they're buying them, and it's
8:42 am
incredible because it's a great reminder that people are kind. >> i love it. well, nicholas, nicholas, we know you love airplanes, right? we know that, right? well, we called our friends at united airlines, and they were so impressed with your passion for airplanes and helping others that they have accepted you as an official juneteenth pilot trainee, my friend so you along with your brothers and your mom are invited to the united denver flight training center in colorado, you're going to spend a full day training one-on-one with united pilots and instructors. you're going to fly a state of the art simulator and you're going to prepare for the start of your career as a professional aviator. what do you think about that, nicholas? >> what is this? >> so -- >> what do you have to say? >> thank you. >> so, nadine, the boys look excited. >> that is so incredible. >> oh, my gosh. >> and the plane is in incredible. >> it's a family affair. yeah, they're very excited about this.

8:45 am
hi. >> hi, cecilia. hello. >> it's so good to see you this morning. okay, we've seen how we've all kind of adjusted to quarantine. it looks like you picked up a new skill, this love of gardening from what we can tell. >> oh, my gosh, yeah, i mean farming almost, you know, when quarantine started a lot of my family hunkered down in our house and so we had nine people. it was just like a multigenerational household. we had kids from 1 to 7. my parents, my aunts and everyone just circled around in my house, and i come from a big family. i'm 1 of 6, so this is very normal for me. it wasn't strange to experience a lot of people. and we're a household of immigrants so we went very old world and decided, okay, we're going to take planting to its next level and we are going to support ourselves with the food that we grow and so that's something we got to do with all of my nieces and nephews on the property and with my parents and now we have amazing food and i'm getting to enjoy all of that during quarantine. >> yeah, we're showing some pictures. you have great vegetables you grew. congratulations on that.
8:46 am
but let's talk about "absentia." this show has everybody buzzing. you have the third season, give us a little bit of a hint. describe the season for us. >> oh, my gosh. it is bold. it is action packed and like you want with every season, you want it to progress and raise the bar and i think we definitely did that this season. we had an amazing team both here and over there in europe and people came from all over the globe to contribute to this and all of the characters have a really interesting arc and i definitely got my fill of action throughout this and there's just a number of different style scenes. we're doing action, and we're doing love scenes, and so forth. because we're not a network, we can push it a little bit further because we're streaming, and that was something that was exciting to explore. >> let's show the viewers a little clip. this is your character emily trying to find her husband who's gone missing. >> so what now? >> i want to see where he is. >> where is he?
8:47 am
>> i don't know. i'm playing this by ear. >> for what it's worth, be careful. >> i always am. >> it's so good. i'm so hooked on this show. you say all the action that your character is into is kind of even helped you become more adventurous in your own life. >> yeah, i mean, like i was studying parkour with real athletes. like our stunt performers were professional athletes elsewhere who were just helping us on the side and they were teaching me parkour, boxing, jujitsu, everything to add value or be able to perform the choreography well and it was intimidating at points. i got to tell you, you're working with a room of seven
8:48 am
athletes who are, like, okay. we'll take a run for that seven-foot wall, and you're going to have to leap over it, and make sure you shoot the bad guys and then leap over it, so it was interesting. yeah. >> we love you in this. we cannot wait to see the new season, "absentia," season three available now on amazon prime video. stana, thank you so much. a performance from machine gun kelly with special guest travis
