You were a kid when you started on Broadway right?

Jimmy Kimmel

I was 18. But by the time I actually was doing the broadway show I was a little bit older. I was like 19, 20.

Meghann Fahy

How do you get a job on broadway when you’re a teenager?

Jimmy Kimmel

You gotta have my mom, that’s the key. I went to an open call that she had heard about through a friend from work I think and I really didn’t wanna go because I was so nervous and very shy at the time and she kinda strong-armed me into it.

Meghann goes on to explain how she was auditioning for Spiderman the musical but ended up getting the role in the rock musical Next To Normal. Meghann adds that she found it “pretty niche” and that it was “right up her alley”. For Next to normal Meghann was initially the understudy but ended up getting the role, as the original actress, with whom she lived, was unwell. Jimmy then asks how often an understudy gets the role which Meghann expresses “not that often”. They then go on to talk about Meghann’s experience filming the soap opera “One life to live”.

The soap opera you were on was “One life to live”, is that the one you were on? The soap opera fans, are they still insane because I know my Aunt Fran chased Kelly Ripa around New York, for many years.

Jimmy Kimmel

Yeah. They are, I was on the one train once because I was doing “Next to Normal” at the time, so I was like shooting during the day and then doing the show at night and I remember going back up to my appartment and these, sort of like a gaggle of women, they were like that’s the girl from “One life to live” because I played a really evil person on the show. I was like kidnapping babies and burying people alive, yeah and they sort of started screaming at me as if I had done those things.

Kimmel then goes on to ask about Meghann’s character on the show “The white lotus” and the possibility of her character being a murderer.

Now, on the show you are on your character seems to be, you know, likeable, very friendly, you know wealthy, a little bit out of touch, but also people think you are maybe the murderer in that opening scene of the first episode, there’s bodies floating in the water and then last night we were watching and you said i’m not the victim and that was a little bit of a red light, a warning.

Jimmy Kimmel

Yeah, it is like a turning point I think for sure because the first two episodes you’re sort of meant to think that she’s simple and just like a housewife and then I think last nights episode, you kind of realise there’s a little bit more spooky stuff going on.

Meghann Fahy

Kimmel enquires about how the opening scene was shot to which Meghan replied that it was all shot ‘out of order’ and further clarified that in the opening scene they used both people and mannequins as bodies floating on the water. Kimmel then asks about the intriguing hotel the show is shot at.

This hotel, I have had conversations with no less than 15 people now who are like ‘do you know what hotel that is?’, I have to go to that hotel that you shoot the show at, is that hotel a great hotel or does it just look like its a great hotel?

Jimmy Kimmel

No it’s a great hotel, I watched the first episode and I saw all the aerial shots and I couldn’t believe that I had been there, just it’s that amazing.

Meghann Fahy

Jimmy Kimmel ends by complimenting the actress saying she does a “great job” on the show and says that it’s very “entertaining”.
