 Victor Fresco on human relationships

"I kind of had to throw myself at him. I told him I'd played this character who had similar qualities, very work driven, strong, insensitive, slightly chilly. I had to convince him I could play this character well and could play a character of this nature. So he made me audition."


 Portia de Rossi on metting with Fresco

"Veronica, is funnier than the character I played on Ally. There's a similarity, but the dialogue is crisper and funnier. I'm Australian. I grew up watching the BBC, and comedians like John Cleese. I get a sense of that kind of absurdist, hyper real tone to my character."


 Portia de Rossi on similarities between her Ted character, Veronica, and Lindsay from Arrested Development

"There's a trust factor. I think he likes the challenge to much to ever want to crack. He's pretty cool under the pressure, but we'll see."
