“Before having a child, traveling for work was a lot of fun,” said Tetona Jackson, who stars as a journalist in the TV film “The Housewives of the North Pole" streaming now on Peacock. “But now – having a baby – I feel like working locally is a lot easier for me, especially having my family here and having them help with her. But there is a part of traveling I do miss – hopping on a plane without thinking of COVID-19, the pandemic and testing – and going somewhere really cool for work.” Fans may stay in touch with her on Instagram (

Q: You’re one of the few actresses I can think of who are also figure skaters. Where are some of the places you have skated on tour?

A: Some of the really cool places I got to visit are Japan, Australia, Colombia, Panama and, of course, all around the United States and Canada, which was a lot of fun. In the U.S., some great places I got to skate at were Madison Square Garden and the Staples Center and both of those were really cool. Outdoor rinks are a lot of fun, but if it’s for training, indoors.

Q: Did you travel at all for work during this pandemic?

A: I haven’t really taken any trips other than going to Utah to film “The Housewives of the North Pole.”

Q: Were there any trips you had to cancel because of the pandemic?


A: As soon as the pandemic hit, we had just gotten back from filming (the second season of) “Boomerang,” so I was in the mindset of relaxing. I was not planning on traveling.

Q: What is your favorite vacation destination?

A: I haven’t been in a really long time, but I used to go to Germany and France a lot when I was younger. I definitely miss going out there. I think the European culture is so different from here and there are a lot more historical buildings (that are just) visually stimulating. It’s beautiful out there. With the holidays, those countries truly go all out. I am one of those weird people that loves snow. I think it’s because I’m never in it here in L.A. and I miss the snow.

Q: What was the first trip you took as a child?
