[…] On this episode of the Billboard on Broadway podcast, Foster chats with host Rebecca Milzoff about her diverse roles and the process of making Take Me to the World. After making her Broadway debut at the head of a large company, Foster says she needed to step back and find a show that would allow her to be part of an ensemble (that was The Drowsy Chaperone). It turned out she loved creating as part of a group — an attitude that carried through to the making of Take Me to the World. “It was really important to me that the album feel like a collaboration,” Foster says. “It’s taken years and years to get to where I am in 2018 as an artist and a person.” The album, she says, is “like a time capsule.”

Age is just a number. At least that’s the motto of Sutton Foster, who stars as Liza on the TV Land series Younger. At 43, the actress portrays a 40-year-old divorcee who shaves more than a decade off her age so she can snag a job in the millennial-centric world of publishing. But while she’s having a blast reliving her youth on screen, Foster wouldn’t dare tiptoe back in time. “My life, in my opinion, has never been better. I’m super excited about what’s ahead,” she says.
Not only is the two-time Tony Award-winning actress enjoying her detour from Broadway into the world of television, she’s loving her latest role as mom to 15-month-old Emily, who she and screenwriter husband Ted Griffin adopted last year.
Parade caught up with Foster to discuss switching from stage to TV, waiting till her 40s to become a mother and finding beauty in embracing her imperfections.
In this Q&A with Younger’s Foster and Peter Hermann, the two-time Tony winner reveals the show that reduced her to sobs and just what makes the chemistry between their on-screen personas so intense.
[…] At the end of the day, Younger (from the creator of Sex and the City) is about its leading lady and the power and necessity of indestructible friendship. We caught up with Foster and her co-star Peter Hermann to talk about their characters’ palpable chemistry, the allure of Liza and Charles, the theatre they’ve been enjoying while filming in New York, and unforgettable theatrical experiences.
Pantsuits? Check. Christmas episode? Check. Some serious twists and turns? Check. Without a doubt, Younger’s fifth season is going to be a big one for the TV Land series.
Liza’s (Sutton Foster) lies have gotten deeper, but so have the character’s relationships and how they interact with each other. As Liza returns from ex Josh’s (Nico Tortorella) emotional Ireland nuptials, she’ll have to face the next phase of her life — and her publishing company boss Charles (Peter Hermann), after sharing a steamy moment last season.
TV Insider checked in with Foster for the full scoop on what’s to come.
