The Story

Sutton Foster skimms what it’s like to be young again.

Like 13 going on 30?

Kind of. Sutton stars as Liza in “Younger,” a show where her character takes the term “young at heart” to a whole new level. She pretends to be 26 in order to reboot her career.

What else did she say?

Make-out scenes are a little nerve-racking. But not as weird as telling her husband that she’s on her way to another bathtub scene with Nico Tortorella.

Actors, amirite. Any other behind-the-scenes fun?

Any scenes filmed in a conference room are commonly referred to as the “conference room of death.” Hint: they take forever to film. But it’s not all work all the time. She does have time for her favorite TV binges: “Fleabag,” “Chernobyl,” and “Dead to Me.” Oh … and “Younger.”


Sutton Foster is going into the sixth season of playing Liza. When it comes to her “Younger” world, she says Josh should get away from Liza. In her real world, she knows one of the biggest challenges is being a working mom. “Ask for help. It’s the hardest thing to do because you want to be able to do everything by yourself.”
