1. 5 Actors On Their Emmy-Worthy Years


Guillermo Diaz: The script was sent to me and the character was described as a 50-year-old, nerdy, overweight guy. I called my manager and was like, “Guys?” They said to just go in; they knew who I was. I auditioned once for Shonda Rhimes, and the producers and I got it after the first audition.
So much has been revealed about your character; did you know much about Huck at the time?Diaz: I think I was the one who knew the most about my character on the show because Shonda actually wrote an audition monologue for Huck. I’m describing my backstory and what I went through. So I actually knew quite a bit. The audition piece eventually ended up in one of the episodes, which she wasn’t sure she was going to do at first.
Diaz: My character was waterboarded in the beginning of Season 2. The producers and directors came up to me before the episode to make sure I would be safe. We had a rehearsal, and I had to get on this plank with a towel on my face while they poured the water. On top of that, I had to be naked.
Dennings: Did you really feel like you were drowning?
Diaz: I did when we were rehearsing and figuring it out, but luckily props said they could line the towel with wax so when they were pouring water in my face it didn’t go in. It was a crazy, crazy day. I was in the middle of the room naked, being beat up and waterboarded, and felt very vulnerable.
