Emmy-nominated actress Judith Light has accomplished a lot in her career, but one of her most unusual highlights is having a dog named after her in the comedy series “Broad City”.
The star of hit shows such as “Transparent” and “Ugly Betty” was asked about her canine namesake during a recent appearance on “The IMDb Show” and she revealed that she “loved it”.
“I loved it! Somebody came to me and told me about it, and they were very worried and nervous and deferential, and they said, ‘Do you know about Judith the dog?’ And they showed me the pictures, and I was hysterical,” Light said.
The scene takes places in the first season of the popular Comedy Central sitcom when Hannibal Buress’ character tells Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson that he names his dogs based on their personalities, including a blonde-haired Afghan hound, named Judith Light.
“I felt iconic, I have to say. And the dog looks like me!” Light exclaimed. “It’s the blonde and the eyes, and the nose.”
The 69-year-old actress, who received an Emmy nomination for her role as Marilyn Miglin in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”, was also asked what she considers her biggest accomplishment in the film industry.
“That’s an interesting question,” she pondered. “I would have to say that I’m still here. That I’m even here talking to you today about being nominated for an Emmy.”
