2018 Emmy Power Players: See the Scene Stealers Behind the Scenes
Rachel Brosnahan, nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon)
My favorite way to kill time between scenes is... Pet my dogs [Winston and Nikki].
My favorite thing to eat at craft services is... Cheetos Puffs.
The best thing I've ever stolen from a set was... After the second season of House of Cards, I stole the rock that Rachel [her character] hits Stamper [Doug Stamper, the President's fixer, played by Michael Kelly] with. It's made of foam, and I really hit him in the face with it, and now it's in my living room.
Of all my costars, the person who makes me laugh most is... Alex Borstein [Emmy-nominated for supporting actress, she plays Miriam's manager Susie] could read the dictionary and I'd be on the floor.

Milo Ventimiglia, nominated for Lead Actor in a Drama for This Is Us (NBC)
My favorite thing to eat at craft services is... Donuts.
My first acting job was... On The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. I've got one line. Look it up on YouTube!
The worst blooper I've ever had was... I was never one to trip or fall or anything like that. My mouth gets me in trouble.

Issa Rae, nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy for Insecure (HBO)
My favorite way to kill time between scenes is... Any social media break. Looking at people talking mess. I love Chrissy Teigen. I love Shade Room.
The costar I had a secret crush on was... All of 'em 'cause I'm thirsty. Boys and girls. Love you all.
Three things I always have in my trailer are... My speaker for my music, snacks that I take from crafty — a variety of nuts, usually with dark chocolate — and my tablet.

Sandra Oh, nominated for Lead Actress in a Drama for Killing Eve (BBC America)
Three things I always have in my dressing room are... My toothbrush, earplugs and my vitamins. I'm so boring!
My favorite way to kill time between scenes is... Entertaining the crew.
The best thing I've ever stolen from a set was... The rug in Owen and Cristina's apartment on Grey's Anatomy before they broke up. It's in my living room.
The TV show I obsessively watched as a kid was... Fame. And The Carol Burnett Show. That says so much about me!

Bill Hader, nominated for Lead Actor in a Comedy for Barry (HBO)
My first acting job was... On the show Punk'd. I only did one episode because I was not very good.
The best thing I've ever stolen from a set was... One of Stefon's shirts [a character Hader played on Saturday Night Live].
Three things I always have in my trailer are... Water, coffee and a good book.
The worst blooper I ever made was... Have you ever seen me on Saturday Night Live? I'm constantly breaking! I'm bad at my job.
