The supporting actor roundtable at the Variety Virtual TV Fest presented by Amazon Advertising featured a handful of TV’s favorite stars — Nicola Coughlan, Rosie Perez, Anthony Ramos, Courtney B. Vance, Hannah Waddingham and Michael K. Williams — who discussed fighting through imposter syndrome and maintaining identity through the ups and downs of the entertainment industry. The group offered advice, with Perez remembering one piece of wisdom she once heard.

“You know what her problem is? She compares, she compares her career to everybody else and she’s so bitter,” she recalled her friend saying. “It’s the worst thing an actor can do is to compare. Your career is your career, your path is your path. That’s all you need to be concerned about because otherwise you’re just going to be a miserable person.”
