Thesps react to SAG wins

Actors see relationship between their art, real life

  • Sans a flu-stricken Sarah Jessica Parker, “Sex and the City” thesps Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon took a moment backstage to reflect on the impending six-month anniversary of Sept. 11. “There is a wonderful feeling of livelihood right now,” Davis said. “The city is reinvigorated, as is everyone’s commitment to (it). Through our work, we get the chance to represent the thoughts and feelings of the residents, and we hope to do it well this coming season.” The “Sex” quartet was feted with their first ensemble win this year and second nomination.

  • Elaborating on how working in comedy has changed her life off-camera, “Will & Grace” thesp Megan Mullally, who took best actress in a comedy series, said: “Looking at your own life through the lens of humor can really take a load off. Comedy helps you to take yourself, and the situation at hand, less seriously.”

  • After “The West Wing” troupe nabbed its second consecutive nod for performance by an ensemble cast in a drama series, John Spencer took a minute to salute his castmates by saying, “I am a better actor depending on with whom I am dancing, and these are the best dance partners I have ever had.”

  • “I am grateful to the American acting community for allowing me to be as varied as I have been in my character choices,” said double nominee Ben Kingsley, who nabbed the category of actor in a made-for/mini for his portrayal of Otto Frank in “Anne Frank.” “To be nominated in one year for my portrayals of both Don Logan (“Sexy Beast”) and Otto Frank proves that nobody (in America) has pushed me into any corners.” Kingsley was previously nominated by SAG in 1999 for his performance in “The Tale of Sweeney Todd.”

  • Commenting on his experience as an American actor working on a primarily British film, “Gosford Park” co-star Ryan Phillippe said: “I felt very much at home on set. It was a pleasure to watch British actors at work. To them, the craft is not as much celebrated as it is studied.” Also present to accept the film’s ensemble acting award for a theatrical motion picture were Kelly Macdonald, Helen Mirren and helmer Robert Altman, among others.
