‘Graceland’ Interview: Three Scenes With Manny Montana


Here at Ology, we love to get inside the heads of our favorite actors and figure out just what went into making our favorite moments of our favorite shows. It’s a game we like to play called Three Scenes, where the people behind the characters explain–in their own words–the story behind some of their biggest moments on the show. Here, Graceland’s Manny Montana shares his favorite scenes of the freshman series. 

Best Table Read
“It would have to be the pilot. It would have to be the pilot episode because in networks they’ll have these table reads and they’ll say its no big deal and it’s just a read through but that’s complete bullshit. [Laughs] I’ve heard stories of people getting replaced after it. You kind of have to bring it!”

Most Challenging
“I would say it would have to be either Episode 8 or 9. And without giving away too much I had to go to a place that was kind of hard for me to go because he has a meltdown. He has a meltdown and he’s trying to get people to get along and to show how good we have it. And he just gets into it with literally everybody in the house. And it’s funny because it’s out of love all that anger.”

Most Memorable So Far
“My most favorite scene is Episode 2 I think. We have this beach scene and it was the first time we were all together as a full complete cast. We are on the beach and no bullshit, in the morning there were rewrites and they give it to me like, ‘Here, we are going to do this tonight.’ And I’m like, ‘Shit!’ The scene is at a beach in beautiful Florida…it’s my favorite because of the visual part of it but also because we are all together for the first time.”
