Just a little article l found about ANTHONY LAPAGLIA talking of his broadway fellow star....Allison Janney!!
It's a very long article.... but here's the bit about AJ
" It was the greatest moment because, to me, theatre is the last place left, as an actor, where you can't fake it. 'View from the Bridge' is one of those plays you cannot phone in. You have to really come up with the goods every night to make that as powerful as it can be. I always felt this incredible obligation to not only the material, but my co-star in that was a woman named Allison Janney, who's now on West Wing. She's responsible, largely, for me winning that Tony because she was so amazing.
It was so intense between the two of us when we were on stage, it got to the point where these argument scenes, we'd have these big argument scenes, they became so intense that literally I would - like, the entire audience would black out for me. I wouldn't see anything. I'd see like dust, like these speckles of dust coming through the light in the air, and it felt real to me, to the point where we were having this one of these huge battles on stage and we were screaming at each other, we were like this far from each other, you know like the Australian wine thing, and suddenly I saw this look on her face, like, "Oh my God." In the middle of screaming - she was a little bit taller than me, she's tall, she's like six foot tall. In the middle of the argument she had somehow, with her two front teeth, bitten down into the front of my nose and blood started to come pouring out. I was so, like, in the thing that I didn't even feel it. But I knew something horrible had happened from the look on her face. She'd started to panic and she was doing this and she pulled out this Kleenex, she had a Kleenex, and she gave it to me, and I'm still yelling at her. I'm screaming at her and I'm yelling and screaming and then I realise, I feel like this wet thing, and I say, "Oh I've got blood." Afterwards I had to get, like, eight stitches. Her two front teeth are very big. "
