Did you know that Amy Ryan joined the Roundabout revival of Doubt with just a week's notice? She didn't just go on to earn praise from the critics for her performance, but she also earned her third Tony nomination.

"I remember the first performance of being suited up in that heavy nun's habit. I thought, 'What have I done?!'" she told BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge. "It  was truly terrifying, but there was so much goodwill in the audience. They knew the circumstances. I'm really appreciative of whoever was in attendance that night. They pulled me through to the other side, towards joy."
