Huffman Landed Role In Desperate Audition

1

Actress FELICITY HUFFMAN landed her role in hit U.S. TV series DESPERATE
HOUSEWIVES in a shocking audition when she complained about the pitfalls of
motherhood.

The mum-of-three stunned casting directors when she stumbled into her
audition for the show, looking distressed.
She then told the agents “I’m losing my mind” in reference to raising her
brood – and believes she got the job as a result of the comment.

Huffman says, “The women pulled back from me as if I’d said, ‘I eat babies.’
I felt such shame and remorse and humiliation. And I guess that’s exactly what
they wanted for (my character) Lynette.

“I’d just left two screaming kids in the bathtub and it was raining. I
thought I pulled myself together well. Later on, one of the producers said, ‘It
was so great because you were such a mess and so frazzled, and your pants were
filthy!'”
