Press: I was wondering if it was up to the two of you, where would you have this relationship between your characters go.
Angela: Gosh, I don’t know. I feel like they’re giving us — there’s so much that’s going to unfold in the next coming episodes that have been so amazing to play. I can’t give anything away.
Ed: Yeah, it’s also — there’s something like — it — we’re also big fans of the show.
Ed: So it’s really fun for us to show up for table reads and find out what the writers have come up with for our characters.
So I don’t mean to dodge the question, but there’s something we share in the — what I guess I’m saying is we share in the sort of excitement and anticipation of what the characters are — what’s going to happen.
And there’s a lot of trust and I think admiration that we have for the writers that it’s like what are you — what’s it going to be? What are you going to give us? So I don’t really think in those terms.
I don’t really — because in a way that’d be sort of rewriting the show. It’s sort of a wait-and-see thing.
I suppose if you were to hold a gun to my head, it might be fun to see Andy get a job at NASA and become the first space tourist…
Angela: Angela would be so proud.
Ed: … to bring Angela into outer space as a space wife.
Angela: Space wife. I totally agree. When you asked that question, I found myself sort of like at a loss for words because I think that anything that I think up, like oh it would be fun if my character did this or something — you know, like if you just sort of have an idea in the moment on the set as like an episode is unfolding, I then like go to the table read.
And the writers have taken what kind of little idea I might’ve had in my head and not shared, and made it ten times more amazing and I couldn’t even believe that they took my character that way or the show that way.
And I do sort of like leave a table read in awe many times. Like oh my gosh, that’s so awesome. I can’t believe we’re doing that.
Ed: It really is. I feel like the table reads for us are just like the episodes for fans.
Angela: Yeah, exactly.
Ed: You know, they really — it has the same anticipation, the same energy. And I’ll say this about the way that Angela and Andy — the way our story develops over the next few episodes, I would not change a thing.
Angela: Me either.
Ed: I am so excited about it.
Angela: It’s so much fun.
Angela: And yeah, I think — obviously, I think the only, you know, thing that we would all want is that they just keep coming up with these things.
Press: Do you guys have like a favorite episode as far as your characters’ storylines that you’ve filmed?
Angela: Oh wow.
Ed: I think for me the really fun — I’m going back a couple of seasons. I always — I just loved punching a hole in that wall.
Ed: When everything — when Andy’s world just crumbled around him and all of like — all of his very shrewd efforts to suck up to everyone suddenly implode and the Rockin’ Robin music is no longer enjoyable. It’s like this death (melt)…
Angela: He had a full on meltdown.
Ed: Yeah, it’s this full on meltdown. There’s nothing more fun as an actor than to just completely melt down.
Angela: That’s so true because I was going to say my favorite episodes for my character are always the Christmas episodes. But if you look back, in every Christmas episode my character has a total breakdown.
Angela: Like she’s screaming and smashing ornaments or, you know, like full of anger. And that’s just — those are my favorite.
Press: Angela, I want to ask you a question that the documentary crew asked you earlier in the season. How does Angela sleep at night?
Angela: I would have to say that it — she’s pretty, I think, wired pretty tight right now. I think she definitely doesn’t want to sleep next to Andy but her nights are probably — I think she tosses and turns quite a bit. She obviously wouldn’t share that with the documentary camera crew, you know.
