Transcript for 'The Heiress' Stars Dish on Making Broadway Debut
I'm so happy to be sitting here with jessica chastain and dan stevens. Both of whom are taking over the bright lights of broadway, hitting the stage in "the heiress," about an heiress and a passionate suitor that may or may not be after her for her money. I love this because you don't know. I'll start with you, dan. We like to keep them guessing. That's the fun of this play. The audience reacts in different ways. How about you? I know you've been involved in theater your whole life. I've done more plays than films. It's surprising to people because all of a sudden -- we hear about you a lot. Everywhere, in movies. It's been really great. This is my broadway debut. It's been a dream to be on broadway. And to be here with this ensemble and to meet dan who is wonderful. And the play is very exciting. It is a great pairing. I want to ask you because your character has to be a little bit plain. But in real life, you're so far from plain. And we were talking before. Thanks. The new face, everybody, of "yfl." How is that to go from that aspect of the job, to having to plain it down? Thank you for that amazing compliment. As an actor, I want to play different kinds of women. And I don't want to be associated with a certain look for each part because also, i want to be allowed to age. And the wonderful thing about playing celia foote in "the help," and in "heiress," they look so different. You've proven yourself and your capabilities. Hey, you're beautiful. Oh, you're beautiful. So are you, dan. Dan, in case you didn't know, he's on a show called "downton abbey." And you've nailed your american accent for this play. Was that hard for you? I listen to jessica. You talk exactly like me. I enjoyed doing accents and voices and things. It's amazing to have an opportunity to do it professionally on a broadway stage. A little nerve-racking. Truly, I forgot you have a british accent. I didn't. I'm not sure if you're aware, we're big fans of "downton abbey" here. Sam and I performed with you. Take a look. I do mean to involve you in the running of the estate. There's only so many hours of the day. And I have the weekend. What? It's a weekend. Yeah. Wow. Are you terrified? That is amazing. Amazing. When we did that scene together, I knew we really -- we had a connection. I really felt that. You're unrecognizable. I like to slip into my roles. And you have the british accent down pat. Speaking of "downton abbey," when people heard you were on the show today, we were inundated on social media. Find out if he's going to stay. Will you or will you not? We have to learn if there's a series coming. All that to lookorward to. I guess the answer is wait and see. Perfectly said. My friends, my fellow actors. Everybody, check out "the heiress." Happen right here at the walter kerr theater here in new york city. Thank you. Coming up on "good morning
