Jemima Rooper Worked With Acting Hero
Speaking to The List, Jemima Rooper talked bout working with such greats as Kelsey Grammer and Harry Hamlin. With the Frasier star, she revealed that with a “proper” star like Grammer, “people might watch it.”
As for Hamlin, “He is one of the most delightful people I’ve ever had the pleasure. I loved working with him. It was all too brief. He was an absolute sweetheart.”
However, there was one costar that she was thrilled to work with. That is because Kate Mulgrew is a “hero” of Jemima’s.
“Kate Mulgrew, she’s a bit of a hero of mine. That was probably the one that meant the most to me. She is a powerhouse. She is incredible. She’s the most laser-sharp mind. She doesn’t let you get away with anything, but she was so incredibly supportive to me, became a really good friend, and felt like an incredible ally. She’s pretty amazing … the pandemic [and] the situation we were all in, it was such an adventure, but there wasn’t a single person that wasn’t an absolute joy to work with and who wasn’t brilliant.”
