I just think that we’re at a point where television is extremely exciting. I just feel really lucky to be at this point in television history making a show like this, and in the company of shows like that. The Emmys is lovely and wonderful, but to me it’s more about hearing the response from the fans… Being in this room — that’s why we do it. [x]
I love Tony and I think what we really wanted to do with him was explore him in the same way we do with all of the characters. I’ve never met somebody like Helena, you know. I’ve never met a Rachel, you know who looked like that. I think, we just wanted to treat him the same way we treat all the characters and go as creative as we could with him. And I know that aesthetically he is a bit, nonconforming. But, to me, that was the exciting thing about him.
