‘Veep’ Star Sufe Bradshaw On Her Second Career Choice, What’s On Her iPodPosted: July 19, 2012
Just like every other year, HBO swept the Emmy nominations early Thursday morning when winning hopefuls were announced for the 2012 Primetime Emmys. Newcomer Girls struck big for the network alongside Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire and Curb Your Enthusiasm. But let’s not forget Veep. The political comedy got renewed after just a few episodes airing and rightfully so. The cast is fantastic and the banter is even better.
Recently, Ology chatted with Sufe Bradshaw, who plays the no nonsense Sue, and she let us in on what her second career choice would be. “There’s really a part of me that would love to tell stories,” she reveals. “I like the idea of a reall good story. So writing for sure. It also goes along with poetry. It’s definitely something that’s always been in my life. I haven’t crossed over into the screen-writing place, but I just want to write stories. I like the expression of art.”
Though she’s only in her first career now, at least Sufe can mirror the compelling and fast-paced writing the creators of Veep have created. After all, the whole cast is probably celebrating their Emmy nods right about now by meeting up at a huge Veep billboard near an L.A. highway. That’s at least what they did when they found out they were picked up for a second season.
As for what can be found on her iPod, Sufe definitely seems to have different taste compared to what Sue would enjoy. “Gotta have the Kanye West in there!” she laughs. “He’s awesome! I’m a big fan of John Mayer, too. I’m a big jazz girl. I listen to John Coltrane and Miles Davis too!”
Okay, so maybe some Kanye is blasting while the crew raise a toast in celebration right about now too.
Veep is nominated for Oustanding Comedy Series, Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series.
HBO leads all other networks and channels with 81 nominations. Production is underway for season two of the political comedy, and recognition for its outstanding work is sure to carry over in 2013.
