“I’m very happy to be here tonight. And I’m going to bring out an actress who I have an incredible amount of respect for. I worked with her on a show called The Act. And she’s one of the most talented and generous actors that anyone could ever hope to work for,” Patricia said as she introduced Joey to the crowd, via People.

The two discussed Joey‘s role in We Were the Lucky Ones, as well as her experience of losing weight and changing her hair color for the role. Patricia then spoke about oactors taking on roles in pieces based on historical events and people.

“I think when your heart is in the right place, and you care about the material, and you want to honor the material, you have to open your heart in a way to this collective experience. That is like one of the awful things of humanity, you know, that man does to men, and I think that’s why historical things I think are very intense,” she said, before asking Joey about The Act.

“I know in The Act, you played Gypsy-Rose, and… now she’s out of jail. But this is also based on a real person. And does it feel different when you’re acting? Like, somebody who actually… existed?” Patricia asked.

“Yeah, it does,” Joey said, adding that Patricia‘s comments were the “perfect description” of “what I mean when I say that the least we can do as actors is feel overwhelmed by the emotion that we are given in a scene. That’s the least we can do. When playing someone who went through something so horrible. It’s a real person.”

“Gypsy is a person who is alive, and people can see her and hear her and experience her in the world. And there’s a responsibility to that in a different way. Because it’s like, ‘Oh, some people can draw direct comparison to… what I did,” she said.

She added We Were The Lucky Ones is “so different,” adding, “because Halina is not alive anymore. But her story is so you know, hopeful and devastating, heartbreaking. And, there’s just so much joy in it as well, in certain parts. I just felt a real, not pressure, but… undertaking to do this justice to make her family proud. I think we all felt that way. Every single one of us in the cast was like, we just want to make this beautiful family proud.”
