Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Jul 15, 2019

Tony-nominated actress Jessica Hecht always brings the goods! Remember her on Friends? She was Ross's ex-wife's wife, Susan.

And Breaking Bad? She played Walter White's wealthy ex-partner, Gretchen.

A View from the Bridge? Seriously.

And now ... The 24 Hour Musicals and the sweet new Netflix series Special.

Jessica popped over to the RIU Plaza New York Times Square recently and after recording this fun podcast (more on that in a minute), we did an EXTRA video Q&A.

Check it out on my YouTube channel -- SUBSCRIBE while you're at it. You'll find dozens of little videos I've filmed with my Really Famous, really fascinating guests.

Meanwhile, on the podcast ...

Jessica Hecht chats about:

  • Being George Wendt's nanny (Norm!)
  • Her husband, talented TV director Adam Bernstein (Fargo, Breaking Bad)
  • Excellent Sheep
  • Why she wants to be YOUR babysitter
  • Growing up with 2 therapists as parents, a lot of yelling, volatility, and feelings talk
  • Facts vs. emotions
  • Relating to other people
  • Narcissism vs. altruism
  • Doing Breaking Bad
  • Red Oaks, Party of Five, Dan in Real Life
  • Asking Danny DeVito if he remembered her
  • Jessica Goldberg, Liz Flahive and Emily Althouse
  • Williamstown Theater Festival
  • Steve Carell and Amy Ryan
  • Why Seinfeld wasn't her best moment
  • Why Friends was
  • Trusting your instincts
