Samira: I don’t even know what people’s night lives [are] like.

Matt: OK, so we’re on the same page.

Samira: We, you know. We know how to have a good time.

Class Clown

Matt: I feel like Lea’s flirtiness combines with her class-clown-ness and she’ll hit on people and it’s just a like a big combination of things.

Samira: It’s kind of like — you know it’s innocent. She’s just doing it for laughs. And then, Danielle: She’s just such a burst of light and energy. She’s always making me laugh. I don’t even think she’s trying to but I’m laughing.

Matt: And I think Lea’s background in stand-up means that she likes to throw shit in and get the last word — in the best possible way.

Samira: She does awesome stand-up.

Matt: Yeah she does.

Most Likely to Be Caught Singing on Set

Matt: How about Most Often Singer?

Samira: She sings, like, hip-hop songs but as opera. Like she’ll sing that Kelis song. Like, all the time. (sings in an operatic voice) “My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard…”

Matt: She’ll do classical dance with it too.

Samira: Pirouettes.

Matt: Lea’s actually an amazing singer too. There’s a lot of [great singers] in the cast.

Most Likely to Brighten Your Day
