3. How do you think Mom is able to balance out their dichotomy of comedy and tragedy so seamlessly?
Emily: "[Mom] does really mirror real life. Things are tragic and sometimes you find a way to laugh about it.
The writing is so brilliant on this show and everybody on the cast is such a team. It’s refreshing to work with actors that truly invest in each other. I mean, comedy is all about your relationship with someone else, and the timing and the delivery.
These women just love each other and are so gracious with the way they are on stage. They’re just very giving as actors—and that’s so, so gratifying to work with."
