Young actress a 'sponge' around comedy vets
Q: This is fair to say, your first TV show since you were an adult, right? How is it different now making this than the ones you made when you were a kid?
A: What I’d say is the level of sophistication of the material is first the reason why I wanted to do this. But I don’t know. I was a kid; I didn’t know what I was doing. I was just riding around on set and now I just — I feel like a sponge and I soak up all the wisdom that I can. It’s really nice to be back on TV and it’s nice to be casted as my actual age, which never happens.
Q: When you’re working with such seasoned talent as Steve Martin and Martin Short, what has really been the thing that you’ve learned the most just from working with them?
A: How they lead a set is so commendable. They are so humble and they are kind and they are there till the very end and they are just really — they’ve set such an example for me. They’ve been doing this longer than I’ve been alive and if anything like I would be so lucky to have a career that lasted that long. … I love the way they talk to people. I love the way that they just come to set and make everybody feel good and that makes me want to be that and do that more. So, I don’t know. Plus, I’m just so lucky. I just sit down and laugh all day. … So, I’m very happy to be doing this.
