American actress Meghann Fahy joins Jimmy Kimmel on his show Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about her experience on Broadway, her role in the soap opera “One Life To Live,” and her role as Daphne in season 2 of “The White Lotus,” the HBO comedy-drama television series.
Meghann begins to explain that it is her first time on a talk show as Kimmel exclaims his love for her role in the television show The White Lotus. He goes on to ask about her experience on Broadway.
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
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 Fahy
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.” Meghann was originally the understudy, but she ended up getting the part when the original actress, with whom she shared a house, became ill. Jimmy then asks how often an understudy gets the role, to which Meghann replies, “not that often”. They then go on to talk about Meghann’s experience filming the soap opera “One Life to Live.”
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.Meghann Fahy
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.
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 replies that it was all shot “out of order” and further clarifies 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.
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”.
