Santa Fe New Mexican - - CELEBRITY Q & A -

As the Peo­ple’s Choice Awards moves to E! for the first time, you’re nom­i­nated for drama TV star of 2018 for “The As­sas­si­na­tion of Gianni Ver­sace: Amer­i­can Crime Story,” which al­ready has earned you an Emmy Award for your por­trayal of killer An­drew Cu­nanan. What’s the sig­nif­i­cance of awards for that to you? I’m al­ways look­ing for in­ter­est­ing ma­te­rial. I’m look­ing for clay that I can get my hands on and re­ally do some­thing dif­fer­ent and big with. I can’t just be like, “Here’s what I want to do.” I have to wait for th­ese kinds of op­por­tu­ni­ties, and this cer­tainly was a once-in-a-life­time op­por­tu­nity that hap­pened to be in the hands of the per­son that I had been cre­at­ing other things with, and who had been such a cham­pion for me on “Glee.” I re­ally hit the jack­pot. I wish I could say it was cal­cu­lated. This was some­thing that I was clam­or­ing for, but I def­i­nitely lucked out. I think a lot of ac­tors have to wait a life­time for some­thing like this, and it came a lot quicker than I had an­tic­i­pated. So, thank you, (“Amer­i­can Crime Story” ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer) Ryan Mur­phy.
