"I'm absolutely thrilled to be nominated for a Tony Award and to see my name on a list with these four American acting legends is overwhelming. I'm eating a cookie right now, so it's a very nice Tuesday! I was watching the announcement on the TV. Getting up at 8:30 is far too early, but I have a one-year-old so I was already up convincing him that eating crayons is a bad idea. It's so overwheming to be on the list with those people. I'm really thilled for Tom Edden! I have to do a show tonight and there's no time to celebrate when you have a one-year-old. There's no time for celebration!"
