The Flight Attendant cast aren't just friendly on screen, they're family in real life. ET's Cassie DiLaura spoke to Zosia Mamet about the cast's tight knit bond and what it's been like living with her co-star and on-screen bestie, Kaley Cuoco.
"You know, I think we're one of those strange scenarios where we actually all are true friends," Mamet shared. "So, we talk on a regular basis. Deniz [Akdeniz] and I did most of our press together the other day, and we were texting a bunch afterwards and we send each other photos. Like, Griffin [Matthews] and I were texting about what we were gonna wear. He's definitely gonna look better than all of us."
Mamet not only dog-sits for Cuoco's pup, Dumpy, she's been staying with her co-star too.
"I actually dog sit for dumpy. I am actually staying with Kaley right now. We are a family," she revealed before dishing on the college, sorority sister experience the pair have been having.
Mamet, who plays Cuoco's confidant and longtime best friend in the series, continued, "It's pretty amazing. We got made fun of a bit from our castmates and our crew this season, because neither of us went to college, or did the sorority, college, roommate thing. And they were like, 'You guys are like, going backwards.' 'Cause my husband was away working, and we were just living together, being roommates."
The difference between rooming in a dorm and rooming at Cuoco's? The digs, the dogs and the food.
"Nicer digs, I think. Nicer food. Earlier bedtimes. A few tweaks, but ya know," she added.
Cuoco's been chef-ing it up in the kitchen too, with Mamet calling her co-star "an exceptional cook."
"Actually, Kaley's an exceptional cook," Mamet said. "She cooked for us last night and it was a feast. And she's one of those cooks too where she's like, 'I got this,' and five minutes later you're like, 'You just whipped that up?'"
In the anticipated second season of the HBO Max thriller, Cassie Bowden [Cuoco] is living her best sober life in Los Angeles while moonlighting as a CIA asset in her spare time. But when an overseas assignment leads her to inadvertently witness a murder, she becomes entangled in another international intrigue, and Annie [Mamet] is right there beside her, to give her unfiltered opinion and helping hand, as Cassie, once again, tries to work her way out of another precarious predicament.
As for how the pair are going to be celebrating season 2 of the hit HBO Max series after season 1's pandemic premiere, Mamet said they will be staying up late and cuddling the dogs.
"I mean, knowing us, we'll probably stay up as late as we possibly can and then go home and put on pajamas, and snuggle the dogs and go to bed," she admitted.
Season 2 of The Flight Attendant premieres April 21 on HBO Max.
