White played Thorpe, a student with supernatural abilities in the series. He is the son of a famous psychic and comes from a wealthy family.
In an interview with Hollywire, White opened up about his character Thorpe. The actor said, “He’s very, like, brooding, he’s always in a bad mood. He’s kind of dramatic.”
Following White’s statement, the interviewer stated that he did not appear moody. The actor then laughed and responded, “I definitely am. Absolutely.” He continued, “You can ask anybody on the set. Some days I would be doing cartwheels, and then other days, I would just be like, headphones [mimes putting headphones over his ears], don’t talk to me.”

Furthermore, White revealed that he shares one trait with his series’ character. He claimed to have had premonitions similar to those experienced by his Wednesday character Thorpe.
The actor said, “I feel like I’ve had a prophetic dream before. You know when something bad happens, and you look back and think, ‘Yo, I had a dream about this. I feel like that’s happened.'” However, White admitted that he is not a psychic like his character, who can accurately predict the future.
