JEAN SMART: Oh, you guys, thank you. Thank you so much. I love
actors. Nobody gets us, you know. But seriously, what we do is valuable. I mean, we
are the tribe's storytellers, you know. Since man crawled out of the cave and sat around
a fire together, and it is important. And so we actually are the world's oldest profession.
Sometimes it feels like we are the other world's oldest profession.
But thank you to HBO Max and Universal and Casey Bloys, and
everybody for their unbelievable support of the show. And, my God, our show runners
and -- who also write and direct the show.
Lucia Aniello and Paul Downs and Jen Statsky. I tell people I work for
JPL, and they go, hmm?
And my cast, my cast was cast in heaven. My partner in crime
Hannah Einbinder and Carl and Kaitlin and Mark and Rose and Paul and Megan and
Poppy. I just can't tell you, you make it a joy to come to work every day along with our
amazing crew and our incredible DP Adam Bricker. I almost said Adam Driver. That
wasn't right. And our production designer Jon Carlos, but this has been such a joy at
this stage of the game, an unbelievable treat.
And my representatives who I absolutely adore, Scott Henderson and
Danielle Thomas and Amy Van Iden, I love you all. And to my two children Forest and
Connor, you are my life. Thank you.
And please, everybody, pray for peace. And thank you, thank you,
thank you, thank you.
