“I did sort of feel like I got plucked out of nowhere. Except the nowhere was New York City after four years at Carnegie Mellon in pursuit of a BFA in acting, and years and years, my whole life, really [doing musical theater and acting onstage]. This is always what I’ve done. And now, people are catching on all at the same time.”
“I kind of love that it feels like I came outta nowhere.”
“Whether in anybody’s eyes it’s a good thing or a bad thing, a morally correct thing, an ethically correct thing, humanizing people in media is important. Industry does a great job of showing all the parts of people that maybe are not that nice, and those are the things that make them human.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of playing someone in that industry, I have a lot more empathy and sympathy and appreciation for how difficult and stressful their jobs are. Like, just the skill that it requires, I could simply never have it [laughs].”
“I was taken aback at how many people of color, and particularly Black women, in the finance world reached out to me saying that they appreciated that their story is being represented.”
“Part of the reason we don’t understand that minorities or young people or women were in the finance industry is because most of the media around it was centering older white men. But that does not mean that other people aren’t in it. Actually, the finance industry is one of the most diverse; we just don’t hear about it because they’re not necessarily the people at the top.”
“I felt Harper and I were mirroring experiences. She comes into this place and it’s a sort of ‘fake it till you make it’ kind of thing. There’s an incredible amount of Imposter Syndrome, which I also [understand].”
“When I was super young I would watch these videos of these indie musicians doing these backyard sessions and I’d be like, ‘Oh my God, I belong there, with the artists!’ When I was in the plane about to land, I was like, ‘My dream is happening! It’s so cool!’”
“The day I did my first intimate scene, I was like, ‘Oh I’m so excited,’ and then I got on set and got all ready and I was like, ‘Fuck, we’re going to do this now?’ But the beauty of how it was done, it was, like, thank God for this.”
“[Industry]’s character-driven. It’s relatable, whether or not you understand what we’re talking about—because, honestly, I don’t understand half of [the script’s financial jargon]. The show allows our audience to feel like they’re inside of it, because our characters are deeply, deeply complex.”
“The thing that makes it different from Succession or Billions is that Industry brings its viewers into its world through the eyes of the youngest, least wealthy people. I feel like literally anyone can relate to being young and hungry, and going up against your peers.”
“Representation is not just all the colors of the rainbow, but [imagining roles] that are allowed to be many, many contradictory things at once. None of it is necessarily pretty. It’s kind of a mess. But everybody loves mess, and everybody can relate to mess.”
“I want people to say, She has that range. I’m very much ready to play something more innocent, something in the world of romance—a character who’s not so on-the-outside.”
“[I was taught], You do whatever you want to do—but karma exists. Respect applies to everyone and everything.”
“You won’t gain the most success unless everyone’s allowed to do what they do well.”
Myha’la Herrold has the aura of a star even before landing a role on the screen. Add to that the talents and the amount of hard work she is willing to give, she is perfect for the job.
