Jameela Jamil on Actress Nearly Sabotaging Her "The Good Place" Audition
Actress Jameela Jamil shares details on her first taste of Hollywood while auditioning for "The Good Place." Jamil shares, "I'm late to audition... I can't find the exact address, I'm new in America, and I don't know, everything looks weird to me. I see a beautiful Indian woman walking down the street and I think, well, maybe she is going for same audition. It was a specific Indian casting, so I walk up to her and I say, 'Excuse me, are you here for the audition for this new Mike Schur project?' and she was like, 'No, sorry.' I said, 'Can you show the address of where I'm supposed to go?' and she says, 'Yes, it's way down this road'... after about 10 minutes of walking I'm now in quite a sketchy area. I turn back around and walk back to where I started... I find the address and it was right where I'd been. I walk in, and she's in the audition going in on my slot. I was like, 'You just said you weren't coming to this audition' and she turns around, looked at me and said, 'Sorry.'"
