She was like, 'Yeah, I know sometimes ask me to do things, maybe I don't, but just so you know, this, I would do one of these.' And I was like, 'OK, Samira!'"

Which Poker Face Guest Star Was Natasha Lyonne Most Nervous To Meet?

The eighth episode of Poker Face, "The Orpheus Syndrome," was directed by Lyonne and featured veteran actors such as Nick Nolte and Cherry Jones. Nolte played Arthur in the episode, a character based on iconic visual effect artist Phil Tippet. During a recent interview with Variety, Lyonne admitted that she was shaking when she met Notle. 

"Of all the Poker Face people, [Nolte's] the only person I was a little bit shaking when I first met," Lyonne revealed. "He swiftly handed me a copy of his memoir called Rebel. It was sort of like, 'You and me, we're just the same, kid.' And I was like, 'OK, in with Nolte! This is fun.' That was when I knew it was very important to have a deep and dark life experience, so that the big boys like that respect you right away. He and I had so much fun together."

The season finale of Poker Face is now streaming on Peacock.
