MY FIRST EMMY!

Samira Wi­ley, The Hand­maid’s Tale

WHO - - Spotted -

You nabbed a Sup­port­ing Ac­tress nom­i­na­tion for The Hand­maid’s Tale. Not bad for some­one who was dropped from drama school! Psyched?

It’s sort of un­be­liev­able! I keep hav­ing to pinch my­self, and it’s been like that ever since I found out the news. I feel like Cin­derella.

If you win, how do you plan to cel­e­brate?

Oh man, I’ll prob­a­bly faint. Peo­ple will think I’m su­per-ex­cited, but I’m just faint­ing. But win­ning is so far from my mind. I do feel like I’ve al­ready won just by get­ting the nom­i­na­tion.

Did you have any idea Hand­maid’s would be­come such a hit?

Even though we all thought it was great, it’s been ex­hil­a­rat­ing that other peo­ple also think it’s great. You just never know. I had hopes, but I re­ally didn’t know it was go­ing to be this big. I just didn’t. ■
