Speaking backstage at Sunday’s Emmys, Cryer said of Cyrus, “She plays kind of a motormouth character. So, they gave her page-long monologues. And all week she was on book with them, which is understandable.”
By “On book,” Cryer meant that the guest star was acting with a script throughout dress rehearsals. Cryer added that he was nervous that she was still on book as late as two hours before filming. Once the cameras rolled, however, he was blown away by her performance.
“Then, we did it in front of the audience, Miley brought it. Miley was just on fire, did fantastic,” said Cryer. “Then, I remembered, ‘Oh, yes, she was actually hatched in the Disney labs in Burbank and grown for just this sitcom situation.’”
