Matt McGorry Used to Ride the Subway With Dascha Polanco And Wonder if They’d Make it
His sweet face is now well-known amidst TV gurus everywhere. He even admits the loss of anonymity is still a bit startling for him. So it’s crazy to think that there was a time he questioned whether or not it would be that way…
But there was! In fact, in a recent interview, he opened up to me about the days before OITNB really hit it off. Before anyone even knew their name, both he and his on-screen partner Dascha Polanco would wonder whether or not the show would make it.
Little did they know they’d be attending the Emmy’s together just a couple years later… And little did he know he’d be landing a leading role on one of fall 2014’s most highly-acclaimed shows.
Switching from sweet, charismatic Bennett on OITNB to a cocky, self-centered law student on How to Get Away With Murder, Mcgorry has come a long way from riding subways, defining himself as a top shelf actor in several realms of television.
Make sure to catch him in the second episode of Murder tonight at 10/9c on ABC.
