"I'm actually very excited for him, because I think that he was actually pretty nervous," Domingo explained. "I sat down with him and talked to him and gave him sort of, just some hints of what I've learned. But I think because ,again, and I told him to lean into the fact that this is your show and that people are very supportive and we all want you to win. And so, you know what you know, and what you don't know, that's okay too. That we're here to help you out. And so I think he's leaned into that as well. And he's a master actor and a great communicator. And I think those are... Especially being a great communicator, is a great skill to have. And I think he understands actors.
