Janel Moloney: Those walk-and-talks, all that stuff is so much fun, and really challenging. You can’t act, because you’re just trying to not run into the cameraman, and not run into each other.
Richard Schiff: It’s also known as “The Walk-and-Trip” that was named after me, I believe. Walk-and-talks were tough in the early days, because we hadn’t mastered the art of learning every syllable word for word.
Allison Janney: I fucking loved it! I loved walk-and-talks. There was a fluidity and a continuity to the scenes. You were in a relay race and if you had to come in on the third hallway pass and you fucked up, it was like, “Oh my God!” It was this really exhilarating game and the perfect way to keep a show about politics active, exciting and fast-paced.
Richard Schiff: Plus you had actors that came from live theatre and it felt like you’re doing a play. Every time we did a three or four minute walk-and-talk, the exhilaration of going on stage would be a part of it.
Rob Lowe: Trying to execute that kind of intricate staging at the same time you’re doing intricate dialogue – it’s like patting your head and rubbing your stomach! (x)
