Who Stars in This? Just Ask Siri on the Apple TV.

by Sarah Dobson on April 26, 2021

You’re relaxing on the couch and enjoying a video playing on your Apple TV, and suddenly you wonder who the actress playing that character is. The easiest way to find out is to press and hold the Siri button on the Siri Remote, and ask “Who stars in this?” The Apple TV pauses the show and displays a panel showing the names and photos of the leading actors and actresses. When you’ve satisfied your curiosity, slide down on the remote’s touchpad to dismiss the panel and resume playback. (This technique works on the fourth-generation Apple TV and Apple TV 4K with video sources such as Apple’s iTunes Store and Netflix.)
