I’ll be quite honest, which is my won't: I didn’t feel very welcomed by the cast. I remember I was wearing this difficult sequined gown — and my high heels were absolutely killing me. I found it odd that none of the actors thought to offer me a seat. Finally, it was one of the older crew members that said, ‘Get Miss Turner a chair.’ The‘Friends’actors were such a clique — but I don’t think my experience with them was unique.

It would be interesting to see if, or how, some of The Results change with perhaps more real-world assumptions.
