political primaries across the nation, voters went to the polls in five states yesterday, several key contests, a test of donald trump's political clout. congressional correspondent rachel scott tracking it all. good morning, rachel. >> hey, george, good to be with you all this morning. this is one of the most dramatic primaries yet full of twists and turns, especially in pennsylvania's senate race. you had a democratic candidate suffer a stroke, get an election day surgery and win from the hospital to the republican election night cliffhanger that's still way too close to call. this morning, all eyes on pennsylvania's republican senate primary. the nail-biting race still too close to call. >> we're not going to have a result tonight. >> we can see the path ahead. we can see victory ahead and it's all because of you. >> reporter: former hedge fund ceo david mccormick locked in a tight race with tv doctor, mehmet oz, with far right commentator kathy barnette trailing farther behind. >> i'm not conceding so don't report it. >> reporter: the primary, a major test of trump's endorsement. the former president throwing his support behind oz.
>> i'm humbly asking all pennsylvanians to vote for someone they know will win in the general election, which is one of the main reasons president trump gave for endorsing me. >> reporter: in the democratic senate race lieutenant governor john fetterman suffered a stroke just days ago, undergoing surgery on election day and hours later winning the race. his wife claiming victory. >> now, you may have noticed i am not john fetterman. [ laughter ] the next senator of our great state. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: tuesday's primaries were the biggest election day yet and it ended in a stunning defeat for embattled republican congressman madison cawthorn, conceding the race to state senator chuck edwards. >> it has been a spirited contest. >> reporter: at 26, cawthorn is the youngest member of congress, under fire for a series of scandals from taking a gun through security at an airport to suggesting lawmakers invited him to sex parties and used cocaine. trump's endorsement not enough to push him across the finish line.
well, trump did score wins in north carolina's senate primary and pennsylvania's governor primary endorsing candidates that backed his effort to try and overturn the 2020 election. robin? >> all right, rachel. good to have you here in the studio with us this morning. and now to the latest on the supermarket massacre. president biden and the first lady visited the scene. they spent time with the grieving family, left flowers there at the memorial for the ten victims. stephanie ramos is there in buffalo. and, stephanie, we're learning new information about what happened just 30 minutes before the attack? >> reporter: we are, robin. abc news confirmed some of those alleged messages posted online by the suspect were made in a private group 30 minutes before the attack. it's unclear who had access to them or who saw them. this morning, president biden sending a message after that racist rampage in buffalo. >> what happened here is simple and straightforward, terrorism,
terrorism, domestic terrorism. >> reporter: the president and first lady meeting with the families of the ten victims who lost their lives when an 18-year-old gunman opened fire at tops supermarket in what authorities call a racially motivated attack. >> we need to say as clearly and forcefully as we can that the ideology of white supremacy has no place in america. >> reporter: the president blasting those who embrace replacement theory, the racist belief allegedly held by the shooter that there's a conspiracy to replace white americans with people of color. this as new details emerge about the suspected gunman, payton gendron, seen here in this graduation photo after he was investigated for threatening a murder/suicide at school in spring of 2021. attention now turning to the 589-page document found online containing posts the suspect allegedly wrote on the social media platform discord prior to the attack.
overnight, abc news confirming that some of those posts were made in a private group 30 minutes prior to the attack. it's unclear who had access to them or who saw them. in december the suspect allegedly building up an arsenal of weapons including the rifle used in the assault. in february, a post claiming that his parents were unaware of the ammo and arsenal he'd acquired. then in march multiple posts about his alleged visit to the buffalo area where he did reconnaissance on the tops grocery store. the shooter also allegedly posting about taking part in animal abuse, claiming his mother gave him a box to bury a cat he killed. then on may 5th just over a week before the attack, the suspect noting he had been lying to his parents for months, a community suffering, not only the loss of loved ones, but also a store they relied on. >> this has been a center of community. so for it to be closed for any period of time is a hardship for some people.
>> reporter: the mayor tells me there's been an outpouring of support with money and food donations for distribution centers. he also says tops is working to set up rides for residents so they can get to other tops grocery stores. t.j.? >> stephanie, thank you so much. we turn now to the latest in ukraine. finland and sweden submitted their nato applications, a direct response to vladimir putin's invasion. this as russia takes over a key ukrainian city. our senior foreign correspondent ian pannell is there for us. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, t.j. a difficult week for ukrainians with many of those defenders in mariupol effectively surrendering and now some uncertainty whether they'll be exchanged for russian prisoners of war. but it's also proving a difficult week for vladimir putin as nato could be about to enlarge. overnight hundreds of ukrainian fighters at the azovstal steel plant in mariupol laying down their arms and now evacuating
the city. russia claiming almost a thousand have surrendered so far. the soldiers are being transported to russian held areas but their fate is now uncertain as the ukrainian governent pushes to exchange them for russian prisoners of war. but russia saying it intends to interrogate the ukrainians and now there are signals from moscow that some of them could be brought to russia to face trials. an adviser to president zelenskyy applauding their efforts in tying down russian forces for nearly three months. [ speaking foreign language ] saying, all these guys basically changed the course of the war. even so, this is a defeat for ukraine. with mariupol now in russian hands russia ppears to have created a land bridge connecting russian territory to occupied crimea, but they have been unable to achieve other major goals of taking kyiv and other key cities. one such area is here in the northeast. ukrainian troops pushing russian troops back towards the border and now reclaiming land. we've come out to one of the liberated villages. some of the locals are living around here still and stayed in
their homes throughout this conflict and although the russians have been driven out of this area as we've seen in a lot of other areas the russians continue to terrorize the local population. in the east the russians attempting to push further into the critical donbas region attacking the city here. in this video posted on social media more evidence of civilian targets being hit as an industrial plant was struck by a missile according to the owner. in a blow to putin, sweden and finland formally submitting their applications to join nato today. they submitted them together to make a point. the leaders of both countries are then going to head to washington where they're going to meet with the president on thursday. george? >> ian pannell, thanks. now to that chilling report on the china eastern flight that crashed in march, killing all 132 people on board. investigators now say the evidence suggests that the crash was intentional. transportation correspondent gio benitez has the latest. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning to you. yeah, overnight chinese authorities did not deny the reports and u.s. officials tell us that the flight data clearly shows an intentional crash.
in fact, right now that's the ory. this morning, we're finally learning what may have caused that mysterious plane crash in china. its final moments, that nosedive like a missile to the ground captured on camera killing 132 people. now in a story first reported by "the wall street journal," abc news confirming that u.s. officials believe one of the pilots intentionally crashed the 737. >> this is exactly what we feared. there's no way a boeing 737 can come out of the sky by itself the way it did. >> reporter: officials say the landing gear was never deployed and the flaps weren't engaged. clues that the plane was not trying to land after an emergency. and that near vertical descent pointing to deliberate force. that rapid descent began at 29,000 feet. the plane plunging to 8,000 feet appears to level off then plunges again. >> there was no attempt to like bring the engines back to idle to try to slow this down.
those pieces to me cause me to lean more towards the criminal w plan u.s. officials investigators looked into the personal life and background of one of the pilots who we're told was relatively young, a veteran pilot by his side. they believe the younger pilot may have been struggling through undisclosed issues right before the crash, putting a spotlight on pilot mental health. in 2015 the co-pilot on a german wings flight locked the other pilot out of the cockpit and brought down the plane in the french alps, killing 150 people. he had been previously treated for suicidal tendencies. and in 1999, the co-pilot of an egypt air flight intentionally crashed off the coast of new england killing 217. >> we've got to be much more aggressive in the international community in finding out how we can make sure it never, ever
happens again. >> reporter: chinese investigators do have the cockpit voice recorder. that is a crucial part of this investigation, of course, but it's also a big mystery because we don't know what's on it just yet. if there was a struggle in the cockpit, that, of course, would have captured it. george? >> a lot of questions to be answered. thank you, gio. let's bring in our analyst steve ganyard for more on this. you know, as john nance was saying there's going to be an investigation into what can be ve tlike this. i theasurerevententional nosedi this. >> there aren't, george. there's always going to be the ability for a pilot to override any kind of automation, and so we're not too many years away from a fully automated cockpit where theoretically, something like this could be prevented. as of now, if somebody is in the cockpit and they want to deliberate crash an airplane, they can do it. >> so one of the big questions is screening pilots for mental health issues.
what does the u.s. have in place? >> any time a pilot is hired the company that hires them will do an initial mental health screening and every year they have a physical where they're asked some rather mundane questions about their mental health. the problem is that none of these pilots are incentivized to be true about whether they have mental health issues, because if they could be detected with mental health issues they could be immediately grounded and lose their job and so the faa has been directed by the congress after the last one of these incidents to go back and look, is there a better way to monitor the health, the mental health of pilots throughout their career. maybe find a better balance between bringing mental health out of the shadows, bringing the taboo away from mental health and balancing that with the public's expectations of safety. >> i guess the other possibility is some kind of storming of the cockpit. >> that doesn't seem to be the case. the chinese said no and, remember, every airplane that comes off the line, either airbus or boeing have locks on the door that are difficult to get into without knowing specific codes only the crew knows.
>> steve ganyard, thanks very much. robin? george, now to that family tragedy on a beach in new jersey. sand collapsing on a brother and sister who were digging a hole. the teen girl rescued but her brother did not survive. janai norman is live on the scene in toms river, new jersey, for us. good morning, janai. >> reporter: robin, good morning. that family doesn't live in the area. they came from out of town for this, the ocean, the sand. it was a gorgeous day yesterday but their day enjoying the beach upended when the sand collapsed trapping their two kids. tragedy at this new jersey beach. >> two people buried in the sand a couple of feet. >> one is still buried up to the chest. another one is below the sand. >> reporter: a pair of teenage siblings trapped in the sand, only one making it out alive. >> one is completely submerged in the sand, probably approximately ten feet. >> reporter: police say 18-year-old levi caverly was on vacation with his family when he
and his 17-year-old sister began digging a hole on the beach. authorities say that hole collapsed trapping the teens. emergency crews rushed in using buckets of water, ladders, bulldozers and other heavy machinery to free the teens. caverly's sister surviving, but the 18-year-old died at the scene. authorities tell us they've seen dozens of similar cases over the last few decades in states like california, massachusetts, rhode island and north carolina. just this past weekend in utah a 13-year-old was killed after being trapped under sand at the coral pink sand dunes. park rangers believe the teen was digging a tunnel in the side of a sand dune. and local officials here say the teens were digging about a ten-foot hole with frisbees now warning about how playing in the sand can become unsafe. the general rule, they say,
don't dig a hole that's deeper than your knees. guys? >> you have to keep that in mind. janai, thank you. so tragic. >> that's an awful story. no easy way to transition from something like that. we do want to let you know something people are keeping an eye on as well taking place right now. you can potentially call it the final four of the nba playoffs officially under way. the eastern conference finals did tip off in miami. the heat and celtics, this was -- looked like a game that the celtics had under control in the first half but then in the third quarter, the heat essentially outscored the celtics, 39-14. >> whoo! >> behind, yes, that guy, jimmy butler had 41 points in game one last night. so the heat are up, 1-0, in the eastern conference playoffs. the western conference finals do get under way, mavericks versus warriors tonight, luka versus steph essentially. >> that's true. a lot more coming up here on "gma," including amber heard. she faced an intense cross-examination by johnny depp's legal team. we'll show you the new images and love letters introduced into evidence.
and a major break in the disappearance of brittanee drexel who went on spring break in 2009 and was never seen again. what investigators have just revealed about the case as her mother speaks to us in an abc news exclusive. but first, good morning there, ginger. >> good morning to you all. we've got our eyes on at least a dozen large uncontained wildfires and they have spread well beyond new mexico. this one here called the mesquite heat fire. they're often named for where their origin is but that one fits. 1,500 acres, this is taylor county close to abilene there. and that one only 5% contained with evacuations. then you had the six-acre fire right by the griffith observatory, super famous. people know that in california. they got that out and arrested somebody there. then we've got more, that calf canyon/hermits peak approaching 300,000 acres burned. unfortunately, we are just heading into another one of these peaks of the wind, seven states have alerts. tomorrow afternoon going to be the worst of it, gusts up to 45 miles per hour. your local weather in 30 seconds now.

a long time. i am so excited so i'm not going to waste any more time talking to you. let's go. the team here are leading the charge. we set off on our journey in the waters off of iceland. >> what are the different personalities for the different types of whales? >> we have the very social ones. we have the ones that are not too social or maybe awkward. they don't know how to group up with other whales. >> you recognize a whale when you see it from markings? >> yeah, some species are easier to recognize. each and every whale has a different marking underneath their fluke. and the good thing with a humpback whale when they take a dive they usually fluke up is what we call it, fluking. so they lift up their tail and the fluke goes up. >> reporter: they're seeing humpbacks more frequently over the summer, but also in winter. there we go. kick the tail up. scientists believe the increase
in humpback sightings is due to increased food supply. >> what role do the waters here in iceland play in attracting the whales? >> this is where colder currents from the north meet warmer currents from the south. great conditions are made for stable food chain. >> reporter: there you go. i was so excited, i had to pull my phone out. >> there it is again. whoo! >> oh, wow. that was incredible. >> it's coming to us as it's curious. pay attention to white patches. >> there we go. >> that's a new one. >> reporter: natural fluctuations with water temperature, coupled with climate change are causing a chain reaction that could affect their food supply down the road. >> whales are sort of an indicator of changes. it's the same with the sea birds. how do we need to respond to this and change our behavior? >> reporter: we can't afford to lose them. whales are essential to the
ecosystem for two reasons. >> their massive bodies carry nutrients all around the oceans. they travel long distances when they are migrating and it carries so much carbon in it. so when it's eating it's taking up carbon from the organisms it's eating and stays within its body, and a whale can live up to carbon that otherwise havef t rr:has telly trap carbon in their bodies preventing it from being released into the air, hilanders'ain relationship with whales was through whale hunting, but that has begun to change. >> when wale watching became more prominent in icelandic society, the teachers and educators started like opening up their ears and realizing this is super cool. so now suddenly almost all kids in most cities or towns in iceland learn about whales. >> reporter: but as whale
watching generates more and more income and people have become more interested in conservation, the good news is that the demand for whale meat has plummeted and the industry appears to be petering out in iceland. te key for us whale enthusiasts is to go with outfits that adhere to safety standards and respect these beautiful creatures in their habitat. remember, you're visiting their home. that scientist, you guys, edda, gave some good actionable advice for all of us to be friendlier comeouplastic cially when it products, you shouldean anshu n do . really help the environment a lot, robin. >> that is really something to keep in mind. looks like you had a whale of a day there yesterday, my friend. what was it like with you? you were looking forward to this. so to see them in person, how close were you able to get, michael?
>> reporter: well, we had one whale that was swimming towards us a little bit. they were still 60 feet or so. i think that's about the closest the whales got to us but it's still amazing to see how big they are, makes you feel really small. but you do understand even though we're small in comparison to those whales, the little actions we take can affect something a lot bigger than us. so it was a good lesson in kind of realizing our place in the ecosystem of how everything works on this planet. >> yeah, you don't usually feel small when you come into the studio. we got a 6'5" hall of famer saying i felt small. stray, what you got for us next hour, man? >> reporter: oh, we got more, t.j. iceland, it is a global leader in sustainable energy. there's so much to learn here. we'll show you how icelanders have harnessed the power of the earth to grow one special food that we all know. i'll tease you right now. i won't tell you what it is. that's coming up. you'll see what it is when i bring it to you. i may have something for you

if everything goes as planned, the shots could be available by thursday. so what do parents need to know? >> thursday or friday. let's go through it right now, just kind of the 411 on this booster dose for pfizer in this age group. number one, children would be eligible if they were 5 or more months after their initial series was completed. the dose is the same as in the rest of the child's initial vaccination. reminder, that's a lower dose than is given in adults for pfizer. and in clinical trials the booster did result in higher antibody levels than in children who were not boosted. but the big questions, robin, you've heard it before, we don't know how long that antibody level stays up. we know that with everyone of every age the antibody levels wane with time. we just don't know when and by how much. >> parents want to know -- how do we know it's safe? >> the clinical trials did show an excellent safety profile. the side effects seen with this booster dose in this age group were very similar with, let's
say, the flu vaccine -- soreness at the injection site in some cases, headache, fever, chills, zero serious safety signals in clinical trials. the bar was set even higher, not just for efficacy in this age group but for safety so the safety profile looked good. >> you know there's still parents saying, okay, my child already has two shots. do they really need a third at that age? >> first advice would be speak to your child's pediatrician on this. this is absolutely important. the other thing is, while yes we don't know long-term effects of the vaccine we also don't know the long-term risks of covid and we know that vaccination makes the risk to the child and those around them as low as possible in terms of reducing the risk of transmission, the inconvenience of missing school or work time if a child is sick. and, again, that real question mark, robin, in this age group we don't know the long-term risks of long covid in this population. >> that is the question mark. all right, jen, i know you'll have more on "gma3." do you mind -- i mean you're great company but i'd like --

>> reporter: known as the land of fire and ice, iceland is extraordinary. full of striking landscapes but here the ground is alive. the country sits on two tectonic plates that are constantly moving apart. creating active volcanoes, hot springs, frequent earthquakes and spouting geysers. geysers like this one allow locals to harness the power of the earth. creating geothermal energy by using the naturally heated water and steam as power. >> in iceland we can be proud that all our electricity are green-making electricity. >> we all strive towards doing this in a sustainable manner, using the resource properly and not wasting it. >> reporter: this man has one of the largest greenhouse operations in iceland. >> can be picking tomatoes every day, we are using our green entity to make a healthy good food.
>> reporter: it isn't just a greenhouse. along the road the flowers and fragrant vines, is a restaurant. >> it's a pretty incredible space having lunch inside a greenhouse. >> reporter: in the u.s. conventional agriculture makes up 11% of greenhouse gas emissions. but that footprint could be reduced by shifting to more renewable energy sources. currently seven states use geothermal energy including california, nevada and utah and the biden administration is hoping to expand that by 2050. >> i think the whole world now is striving towards making us best possible use of clean sources of producing electricity. >> reporter: what a special place. it's most important to note that geothermal energy is considered better because unlike traditional fossil fuels, it doesn't contribute to global warming, you guys. >> all right, and, michael, i
know that you already said you'll bring us back the puffin stuffed animals. anything else you're going to bring back for us? >> reporter: oh, you know i got you, robin. i was a little worried about that ice cream that we showed you. i was worried it wouldn't travel too well. so we got you tomato pancake syrup, dessert sauce and tomato jam. ys, i haven't had breakfast yet. actually i've never had tomato jam. here we go. cheers. >> do it. do it. >> reporter: it's good. tastes like apple pie. >> wait a minute. did you -- okay, you had to take that other bite. i didn't think you took that first bite. i know you. i know you. >> michael, i know you're still chewing. what's been the highlight of the trip? >> reporter: george, it's hard to beat whales. being out on the water to see the whales and understanding the whole ecosystem around here, i think the people have been a highlight as well.

[ laughter ] >> we were taking bets who was going to ask you. >> reporter: i knew that's why you asked -- i knew it's why you said it like that and that's why i answered like that, no, no one got splashed. we were careful and stayed way from it and no one trying to go over there and get hit by that hot water. there we go. >> well, they gave me a really smart question to ask you, stray. no, look, man, you've shown us a lot but it's hard to kind of sum this up and have an actual, i guess, a highlight of the biggest moment but you have to have some takeaway. what is the big takeaway maybe you want everyone to have? >> reporter: the takeaway, t.j., is being here and right off the coast of a city. there is an ecosystem of life that gives us an indicator of how we are affecting our planet from land.
and for us to listen to those indicators because it's not too late to listen to what we're being told if it's from the puffins or it's from the whales or anything like that, how we can make the world a better place, how we can kind of curb this crisis that we do have right now and, you know, it's just the little steps we can take to do something to help the planet. that's what i've learned here in iceland. i hope that's what everybody takes away from the trip that there's still time and we can all still make a difference. >> i'm so glad you're there. i've learned i need to get to iceland. you've been to space. now you've been to iceland. what's next on your bucket list, my man? where are we sending you next? >> reptes you know where you're going to send me. i'll sit my butt in that seat at the studio desk for quite a while now. i need a break. i need a break.

>> this is about the sex pistols, big punk rock band in the late '70s, '80s, way before your time, i think. you play jordan a real fashion icon. >> yes, she was. so jordan was kind of like the physical embodiment of vivienne westwood's shop and the pistols kind of came from an inspiration of that as well. so she was a fashion icon and the images that she created kind of, you know, live on today in pop culture which is very exciting. >> was there one particular look from her that really stood out for you? >> there were so many but there was a lot of rubber stockings and like rubber outfits and there was a particular skirt that when she wore it, it was kind of a heat wave in london ad she said that the skirt kind of melted off of her. it didn't happen to me, thankfully. >> oh, wow. >> this is my rubber suit, as you can see it. >> that must have been so much fun to play.
>> yeah, just incredible. i think working with danny and being able to tell steve jones' story was just such an unbelievable opportunity and for all of us, i think, getting to sort of dive into the history of the pistols and to them it's sort of vulnerable. we only know the stories that have come since so it was nice to find some humanity in that. >> that's right. do you mind if we show a little to folks? >> yes, please, please. >> with a new generation gap. >> good for you. and how long before you're the old new generation gap? what will you have then but to trade boring stories about how you were the brightest young things at some gig that nobody even remembers? go home. learn things. get clever. make your own destiny. >> ooh. >> you talked about bringing
humanity into the story, but still the look is so much a part of it as well. what were the sessions in hair and makeup like? >> it was a lot of time. i had multiple wigs and different makeup looks, but for me i'd never really played a character where i had such a physical transformation. i bleached my eyebrows, my hair. so it was -- yeah, it really felt like something to center myself every day and find who jordan was and i really appreciated that. i have never been able to rely on that physical transformation before. >> last time here you were here before the finale of "game of thrones" finale. what's your favorite souvenir from the set? >> i was lucky enough to take home my final jacket and it's still kind of covered in rubble and fake blood, just the way it was there. for me, yeah, that costume signifies a lot when i think about the final look of arya being so broken, yeah, i was grateful to take that jacket with me. >> you say got to take home. did you take it or did they let you? was it given to you?
>> it was gifted by someone who we won't mention. yes. >> it is great to have you back. we cannot wait to see "pistol." thanks for coming in. it premieres may 31st with the full season dropping on hulu on fx. now let's go to ginger. >> we have a fresh breeze out here. it's a little chilly in times square. that is not something folks in atlanta are going to be saying today. you could go for a record. you can see it there from the camera looking over, a little hazy start, same thing for birmingham or memphis. those records popping in texas for over a week, they're now spreading east. yes, texas is still hot. and look at what happens. by this weekend, boston could get to 90. new york city, close. philadelphia in the mid-90s and washington, d.c., mid or upper. that is going to be a hot saturday. that's the big picture. i'd take that heat right now. would you all? yeah.drew: a warm to hot day to, 80's and 90's away from they to, coast.

i was like, you guys, one job, one job and they messed it up but it was all in fun. we love each other. it was great. >> what -- you have now so much going on. the show on apple tv plus now, you play yourself 20 years apart, right? >> yes. >> how did you go about doing that? you are playing yourself 20 years difference. uh-oh. >> god bless the hair and makeup department. that's all i got to say. but it was a challenge that i was up for. at first i thought the director gideon was crazy and he says, no, i think you could pull it off and it was a great acting challenge. i mean, i got to play older. i got to play younger. so much involved in that in your physicality, it's not just your appearance, it's your mindset, it's everything. emotional responses and everything and i loved it. this was a very, very challenging role. reheli it anthe ca wasrf.n hesi
>> you want to get it right. good to be thorough but there's such a thing as tact. >> i'm very well aware of that and i could use a tad less of a condescending tone, please. i'm just saying it's surprising they all remembered the exact time when alejandro -- it seems like they all agreed on the same stories. >> you said something. you said you didn't think you could pull it off playing a 20-year younger version. what was the -- you said the physical was one thing. what was it about getting back 20 years younger? what was it about the mindset that was so challenging? >> you have a certain maturity you come into when you get older and you have to remember that immaturity and that insecurity that you had when you were younger. and trying to fall into that and having a woman who was so determined, yet scared and terrified of becoming a -- you know, a junior homicide
detective. it's her first homicide case. she also has a back story where something horrible happened to her brother and that's why she entered the police force so i had to carry all that. a mature woman would deal with that differently, a younger woman would not handle it as well. >> all right. now, i was joking about everybody wanting to say hello. robin came over and was talking about "the flight attendant." right? >> right. >> you're starring in that show. do i have it right? you said you didn't want to take on the role because you don't like flying. now, do you have a fear of flying or don't like the headaches that come with air travel? which is it or both? >> all of the above. all of the above. ihate packing, getting into a car in traffic, then going to the airport, standing on this line, that line, getting checked. i always get patted down. i don't know why. it's just horrible. then once i get on the plane i'm praying there's no engine trouble. if there's turbulence, i'm the only one screaming. it's just horrible. then customs, here we go again.
i hate the whole thing. >> that was a reason you almost said, nah, i don't want to be in "the flight attendant." >> yes, and when i got the offer for "now and then," i called up kaley and said i hate you. started things and now i have to go to spain and miami and all this stuff. she couldn't stop laughing. i said, but you know what, thank you so much. it is a great opportunity, "the flight attendant" is just an amazing show and i'm so grateful. >> you have a done a lot and people know you from a lot of things, classics essentially. but what is the reaction you're getting from people from "the flight attendant" that is maybe different than what you're used to in your career? people love the show. >> the reaction i'm getting that is different is really from men and women who are dealing with menopause or have dealt with someone who has menopause or -- and just -- and then also a lot of men and women who are dealing with not being seen, who feel invisible at any age and that's the response. that's the strongest response
i'm getting and that's such a great compliment and when i go on a plane now it's fabulous. i get the greatest attention. [ laughter ] >> when they do get you on a plane. >> when they get me on the plane, yes. but i think that's a really nice thing that people are responding to megan in that way. you know what i mean? and i really wanted that for her when i talked to the executive producers. i said what if the story line underneath was about her insecurities about getting older? >> wow. rosie, it is so good it see you. i haven't seen you in a while. we go back many, many years. it's so good to see you in studio today. >> aww. i love you. you're wonderful. >> robin, you can come get your hug. but "now and then" premieres this friday on apple tv plus. robin is on the way. three chefs coming up whipping up their own delicious spin on the dumpling. go ahead. >> "now and then." >> aww. >> i can't wait to see it. can't wait to see it. >> mwah. >> blessings.

that's going to help -- >> seal the deal. how do you make the pockets? >> now what you do is pleat the edges and that gives them this pretty edge and then you tuck in the ends and you do that on the other side too. >> okay, so now cooking a dumpling, it can be a messy affair? >> no, it's super easy, the way i love to cook them to get these crunchy bottoms and steamed tops put it in a pan with oil and water together and then you cover them and so they fry on the bottom and steam on the top all at the same time. >> yum. >> yeah. >> do you mind? >> absolutely, go for it. >> i want a tour. i feel -- mm-mm. >> how is it? good? >> it's crunchy, do not remove those. all right. onward, certainly not upward, but, wow, that was good. all right, next up, we have -- heading to the philippines, jordan andino, chef extraordinaire. your take on this traditional dish, this looks more like a spring roll to me. >> this is called -- [ speaking foreign language ] based off the chinese spring
