Playbill News -Tony Nominees Offer Their Reactions to Being Honored


QUOTE
Jessica Hynes, The Norman Conquests: "I was walking around the kitchen, and I had a number on my phone that I didn't recognize. It was the number of the offices at the theatre. I called and said, 'This is Jessica Hynes.' He said, 'Oh, congratulations!' and I said, 'What for?' He hang on, 'I'll put you through.' He put me on to [press agent] Jim Byk. I was just padding around the kitchen recovering. We had a cast get-together last night. I made food, and we all had beers. I was recovering from that, with my children running around. I kind of had a vague idea the nominations were today, but not really. And then we got seven! They should change the name to The Nominations Conquests."

Good luck Jessica.

Some after show interviews with the cast at tonyawards.com. Not sure how to link directly.
Select category 'Winners Circle' and 'Thank You cam' and they are listed on the right.

Bloody Angela Lansbury.

1. She's a national treasure
2. She's eighty three years old, to even be carrying on in stage roles at that age is something to be applauded, let alone being an actress of a high enough calibre to win awards.


Whilst the more mature part of my brain knows this is all in jest, theatrically-speaking those two are far apart.
And Jess has got at least another fifty years to win a Tony, an Emmy and BAFTA so ner tongue.gif
