James Tupper is dishing on “Big Little Lies”.
The Canadian actor, 54, who stars as Reese Witherspoon’s ex-husband and Zoe Kravitz’s current hubby Nathan on the hit HBO series, chatted with “The IMDb Show LIVE on Twitch!” and says working with Meryl Streep on “BLL” is a highlight of his career.
And she’s the reason Tupper knew he had made it in Hollywood.
“One of the biggest highlights of my career was when I came in one day and saw a call sheet and it said, ‘Meryl Streep’ and then right under it it said, ‘James Tupper,'” he gushed. So I took a picture of his call sheet and I sent it to my family, like ‘Look I made it!’”
But Tupper still had one remaining skeptic, “And then my dad wrote back, ‘Yeah, but she’s not sending that photo to her friends.’”
The actor later admitted his dad had a good point.
He later chatted about his relationship with co-star Adam Scott, both on and off-screen.
And despite their hatred between their characters, Tupper insists “We have so much fun, we’re buddies.” Scott even borrowed his cabin in Lake Arrowhead last summer with his family.
Tupper and the “Big Little Lies” gang earned raved reviews for the second season of the drama, even nabbing a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
