Melinda Gordon spends the majority of her time working around ghosts, so the paranormal happenstances in her day-to-day life are pretty typical. The show's cast and crew, however, weren't necessarily prepared to take on the same responsibilities.
People who had worked on the show reported multiple instances of strange things happening while they were shooting the show. In one story, the crew noticed something odd going on behind show star Jennifer Love Hewitt, while they were filming. It appeared that something shadow-like was moving around, just past her shoulder. Curious to see if this was the light playing tricks, the crew replayed the take they had just filmed. To their surprise, they could see what looked like a shadow turning to look over it's shoulder on camera, all while Hewitt was working.
This was not the only instance that the crew experienced something spooky. Lights and equipment seemed to move on their own; every so often, a lightbulb would burst and shatter without reasonable cause. The rumors of these creepy happenstances even made people think twice about their guest star appearances. Hewitt confirmed in 2007 that something eery was definitely following the show.
"We were filming in a certain part of a lot and there was this building I was walking out of to start a scene, and there were seven crew members who went inside this building and had very strange experiences. One of the ladies felt her sweater being tugged and she couldn't explain it and another guy felt somebody tugging on the bottom of his jeans, and I had the bottom of my dress tugged. We definitely felt like something was in there,” she revealed in a 2007 interview.
If Hewitt was looking to get into some method acting, Ghost Whisperer may have been her opportunity!
