Ernie Hudson Ghostbusters
Sony Pictures Entertainment

Ghostbusters celebrated its 30th anniversary this June, and to celebrate, star Ernie Hudson stopped by EW Radio to talk about his favorite memories on set, and what it was like working with Bill Murray.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tell us, if you had to pick out one memory or moment on set that really strikes you about your time working with those guys, what would it be?

ERNIE HUDSON: For me, it was being in New York, shooting in New York. And it’s hanging on the streets with Bill Murray the few times we got a chance to just hang out, and even shooting, [seeing] how much the fans love Bill Murray. They were [in love with him], and what amazed me in watching—’cause I’d observe—is how he would wade into the crowd, and he just gave this love back. A lot of actors, they hide, they don’t want all that attention, but Bill would just become one with them. And it was a beautiful thing to watch. I saw him recently, and he still has that thing of just including people in a very special way. That was, for me, the thing I take away from it the most. Just seeing him with the people and seeing how he dealt with his fanbase.

You have a secret phone number?

I have a [secret phone number].  He never answers anyway.
