The love she had for Bessie was kind of amazing so I went in full-throttle, just went in and tried to kill the audition and I guess Dee loved it and we went from there.
After Ellen.com: So you got the chance to see at the premiere this week, right? TS: I read the script and everything in the script was amazing. AE: Lucille really says so much with her facial expressions. TS: [laughs] Sometimes it can be difficult but I think that’s what acting is. I think everybody has loved somebody and they didn’t love them back—not love them back but give them their full attention.
I think everybody has felt those kinds of feelings so I was just being in the moment, basically. What kind of background did Dee give you on playing her?
TS: Actually I read a book about Bessie and there’s this little part about a woman who traveled with her which was her niece—not through blood but through Jack G, her husband.
