Landing roles wasnt always easy for the former Will & Grace actress, who stars on the upcoming ABC comedy In the Motherhood, premiering March 26.
Mullally recalls the worst audition shes ever been on, which was for the part of Maria in a Broadway revival of The Sound of Music.
Though she didnt think she was fit for the part, Mullally took a chance and tried out anyway.
She says, There was a crazy amount of audition material. I learned three songs, four scenes. I worked my aþþ off.
Midway through her rendition of Climb Every Mountain, Mullally was cut short by a casting director.
Mullally describes, I left the room, shut the door, and the entire room of people burst out laughing, like hysterical derisive laughter. I was crying and crying.
The now tough-as-nails starlet chalks it up to being young and tender, and assures that she wont get her feelings hurt like that again if she can help it.
