Rachel on finding out about her nomination: “I had the day wrong. I was in a deep, deep sleep, I was half-asleep wondering why my publicist was calling me at 5:45. Then I saw every person who I had ever loved or knew had texted me. I thought there had been some catastrophic event in the world.”
Sacha Pfeiffer on Rachel: “Most people only see the red carpet side of big-name actors, but I got to witness up-close how hard Rachel worked to get ready for this role, and how much effort she put into studying me and replicating my mannerisms and even trying to understand the way I think. And I consider that a testament to how talented she is.”
