Biscuits with the boss? No, but how about a conversation with the person who runs AFC Richmond, Hannah Waddingham? Waddingham whose roots are in theater never imagined that Ted Lasso would ever become a pop-cultural phenomenon (who would), she felt very fortunate to have landed a role that in her mind was never going to happen. Can anyone imagine another person playing that part? Her heartfelt performance weaved in with that razor-sharp wit landed Hannah an Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actress. While to most this is far from shocking, Waddingham takes great pride in keeping the focus off of her accomplishment and puts it squarely on how many of the cast and crew were nominated. How could anyone not root for this former Lady of the Lake?
We were lucky enough to speak with Hannah about the 2nd season of Ted Lasso and touched on what fans can expect this season.
