Good ideas, good music, good vibes—those are some of the things
the writer/producer/actress/absolute badass is made of. And yes, spending the day with her—and her creative
team of geniuses—is exactly as fun as you would imagine. So what else did we learn about Issa at our shoot?
Well you’ll just have to watch the video and find out.
“The best advice I’ve ever received is to make sure I’m
having fun, to celebrate the wins. I can get tunnel vision in terms of what’s next, what’s next,
what’s next. But looking back at what you’ve accomplished is really important.”
“At the start of the pandemic, I was walking twice a
day—early in the morning and when the sun went down. It was really peaceful and gave me some agency.
Listening to music is also essential to me, it’s calming. Putting myself in other people’s shoes
too. That’s why television is so great—you get to disappear into another world.”*
*In case you’re wondering what Issa’s binge watching: “Big
Mouth has been a source of disgusting joy during this time.”
