Tyne Daly: I got the ‘best jokes’ in ‘Hello, My Name Is Doris’


In the new movie “Hello, My Name is Doris,” six-time Emmy winner Tyne Daly plays the best friend of an eccentric widow played by Sally Field. She says she first worked with Field a long time ago at the opening of Burt Reynolds’ Jupiter Theatre in Florida, which she calls “a complete disaster” and “a bonding experience.” She says she was drawn to “My Name Is Doris” by the writing, the prospect of working with Field, and that “they gave me three of the best jokes.” She also reflects on her long career, saying she got her Actor’s Equity card at the age of 15.
