TV acting is an entirely different animal: Jane Fonda

Los Angeles, May 3 (IANS) Two-time Academy Award winning actress Jane Fonda, who stars in American comedy-drama series “Grace and Frankie”, says television acting is foreign territory for her.

“Episodic TV is an entirely different animal: Being in every episode, working very long hours, not entirely knowing the arc of the entire season, having to learn lines very quickly,” Fonda told

The stars of Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie” celebrated new beginnings at its season two premiere last weekend with a screening at the Harmony Gold Theatre in West Hollywood.

The two episodes screened included the show’s usual mix of comedy and pathos. The series picks up moments after the end of season one as Sol (Sam Waterston) is returning home to Robert (Martin Sheen) after having sex with ex-wife Frankie (Lily Tomlin).

Tomlin said she and longtime friend and co-star Fonda have gotten along famously for more than 35 years without having “too many quarrels”.
