He emily the criminal The star recently revealed that she had auditioned for the show in the past.
She told Jimmy Fallon in the tonight show that she only did a “first-round preview” and didn’t make it to an audition with creator-producer Lorne Michaels.
Plaza, who was an intern on the show, also revealed a couple of characters that she tried out.
“I remember one character I did was like a Puerto Rican news reporter who was always trying to make all the news sexy, even if it was horrible news,” she said. “He was just trying to get me to like him, give sex to the news or something.”
