Jessica Hecht on Auditioning for Monica on 'Friends' and Earning Her First Emmy Nom 25
Jessica Hecht is no stranger to TV, having appeared in everything from Breaking Bad to Friends while most recently appearing on The Loudest Voice and Succession. We have so many dysfunctional mothers depicted on television, Hecht tells ET about what separates Karen from the typical tropes. For Ryan, thats an unexpected friendship with his new coworker, Kim (played by Punam Patel, who is also nominated in the same category as Hecht) as well as finally dating and having sex.

The other being during the season finale when Karen and Ryan confront each other about their relationship after he misses her birthday.
