Kristen Wiig Picks Her Favorite 'Saturday Night Live' Characters

Kristen Wiig picked her favorite characters to perform on “Saturday Night Live,” during Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” series.

“I have a special place in my heart for the Target Lady, simply because I did her at Groundlings before I got ‘SNL,'” she told Saoirse Ronan. “I did her in my audition and I remember being so nervous having the sketch at the table read and thinking to myself, ‘If this doesn’t go well, then how am I going to do on the show?'”

The seventh season of Variety‘s “Actors on Actors,” presented by Google Home, will air from Jan. 2 to Jan. 4 at 7 p.m. on PBS SoCal KOCE.
