When I read that Lucy Liu played the accordion, I was like “yeah right!” But then I found these pictures and the following anecdote:
Greg Germann, who plays [Richard] Fish, Liu’s love interest on [Ally McBeal], is an accordion aficionado as well, so he was surprised to learn of his co-star’s interest. “What are the chances of that?” he says. “Then we found out we both study with the same teacher, Milton Mann, this incredible octogenarian who only has three or four students. Occasionally, we take our accordions down to her dressing room and play. It’s me trying to keep up with her — that’s generally how it goes.” [x]
I feel like I’ve fallen down into this strange and oddly hilarious rabbit hole.
