Highlights from Miss Messing's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Gotham!
On how the conversations started for her new show 'Smash':
"My agent—I’ve been with her forever, and she knows I hate everything. It’s basically that I don’t want to work, so I have to love something to want to work. She called me and said, 'I read a script I know you’re going to love; I’m sending it over.' The second I read it I called her up and said, 'I have to be a part of this.' When I got the call that said I was offered the part, I shrieked, and all hell broke loose."
On starting out on Broadway:
"I was born in Brooklyn, my mother was born in Brooklyn. She was a singer, part of a quartet in the ’60s called the BrookTones, and she played Funny Girl when I was three; I knew the words to 'I’m the Greatest Star' before 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.”' I came back here for my master’s degree from NYU, and then did off-Broadway theater until I was pulled out to LA to do Ned and Stacey."
On her earliest memory:
"Singing, dancing, holding onto a corner table as a little, little girl with Broadway musicals blaring in the background. I think it might have been Funny Girl."
On her best fashion moment:
"I think it was that black dress from the Emmys because it was so consequential; I felt so comfortable and so beautiful. It was absolutely the perfect dress for me for that event. To me, it was a home run."
