  • I'M THRILLED TO INTRODUCE TO EVERYONE TONIGHT THE DELIGHTFUL

  • JO ELLEN PELLMAN!

  • IS RATE HERE, THERE YOU ARE, LOOK AT YOU.

  • HOW ARE YOU?

  • >> OH, I'M GOOD, THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME, JAMES.

  • I MISS YOU.

  • >> James: I MISS YOU TOO.

  • NOW HOW IS IT GOING?

  • WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE YOU RIGHT NOW?

  • >> I'M HOME IN CINCINNATI, OHIO, WITH MY MOM AND OUR CATS AND OUR

  • DOG AND I'M JUST REALLY ENJOYING BEING HOME RIGHT NOW.

  • AND HUGGING MY LOVED ONES, YEAH.

  • >> James: YOU MOVED BACK JUST WHEN THE PANDEMIC STARTED OUT.

  • HOW HAS IT BEEN FOR YOU AT HOME THERE?

  • >> IT HAS BEEN, SO I MOVED BACK TO OHIO LIKE BACK IN MARCH RIGHT

  • AFTER WE SHUT DOWN.

  • AND IT'S BEEN, I THINK, SUCH A BLESSING BEING HOME AND HAVING

  • TIME WITH MY FAMILY.

  • I FEEL LIKE I CONNECTED WITH MY GRANDPARENTS WAY MORE THAN I

  • HAVE SINCE I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL.

  • AND YEAH, IT HAS BEEN FUN GETTING TO WATCH THE PROM WITH

  • THEM AND SHARING THAT EXPERIENCE WITH THEM.

  • >> James: IS THIS THE GRANDMOTHER THAT I HAD THE

  • PRIVILEGE OF FACE TIMING WITH WHEN WE WERE FILMING?

  • >> YES, THAT IS MY MIMA, SHE IS GOOD, YEAH, SHE IS STILL BRINGS

  • THAT UP EVERY TIME I TALK ABOUT YOU, OH, MY FRIEND WHO I FACE

  • TIMED WITH.

  • THAT REALLY MEANT A LOT TO HER WHEN YOU FACETIMED HER IN THE

  • HOSPITAL THIS PAST YEAR.

  • >> James: WHAT DID SHE THINK OF YOUR PERFORMANCE IN THE FILM.

  • SHE MUST HAVE BEEN SO PROVIDED?

  • >> SHE, I MEAN, SHE IS SO PROUD, EVERY TIME I GO OVER THERE, SHE

  • WANTS TO WATCH IT.

  • WE BRING OVER A LAPTOP AND HOOK OUR COMPUTER UP AND WATCH THE

  • PROM.

  • I HAD TO GET MY OWN NETFLIX ACCOUNT FOR THIS BECAUSE I WAS

  • USING A FRIEND'S FROM HIGH SCHOOL FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS.

  • LIKE IF I'M GOING TO BE SHARING THIS WITH MY GRANDPARENTS I

  • CAN'T BE ON A FRIEND'S ACCOUNT.

  • I HAVE TO GET MY OWN, SO NOW I CAN SHARE IT WITH HER.

  • IT IS MY ACCOUNT, IT IS GREAT.

  • >> James: DID NETFLIX NOT EVEN GIVE YOU AN ACCOUNT GIVEN YOU

  • ARE THE STAR OF ONE OF THEIR HIT FILMS.

  • >> NO, THEY DID NOT GIVE ME AN ACCOUNT.

  • IF THEY WANT TO.

  • >> James: THEY PAY YOU FOR THE FILM SO THEY PROBABLY THOUGHT

  • YOU COULD USE SOME OF THAT MONEY FOR THE 15 BUCKS OR WHATEVER IT

  • IS.

  • >> I KNOW.

  • >> James: NOW THE MOVIE CAME OUT AT ON CHRISTMAS AND WE'VE

  • SEEN A LOT OF EACH OTHER OVER SCREENS.

  • THESE PAST FEW WEEKS AND IN NORMAL SOMETIME TIMES, THERE

  • WOULD BE A PREMIER, THERE WOULD BE RED CARPETS.

  • BUT WE'RE ALL IN LOCKDOWN.

  • HAVE YOU FELT ANY CHANGE?

  • HAVE YOU FELT ANY REACTION SINCE THE FILM CAME OUT?

  • >> I MEAN I FELT AN OVERWHELMINGLY POSITIVE REACTION

  • ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE MESSAGES THAT I AM GETTING, LIKE FROM

  • PEOPLE SHARING THEIR STORY.

  • OR HOW THE PROM MADE THEM FEEL ACCEPTED AND LOVED.

  • BUT IN TERMS OF LIKE DAY TO DAY, MY LIFE IS PRETTY MUCH

  • COMPLETELY THE SAME.

  • I STILL EMPTY THE CAT LITTER BOX EVERY DAY.

  • I HAVE YET TO BE RECOGNIZED ANYWHERE.

  • NO AUTOGRAPHS, NO SELFIES OR ANYTHING, SO I AM ENJOYING THAT

  • IT HAS BEEN PRETTY NORMAL.

  • >> James: ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS WHEN PEOPLE TALK TO ME

  • ABOUT THE FILM AND ALWAYS WITHOUT QUESTION BRING UP YOUR

  • PERFORMANCE IN IT, AND I TELL THEM THAT IT IS YOUR FIRST FILM,

  • NO ONE CAN BELIEVE IT.

  • AND IN TRUTH I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT BECAUSE THE FIRST TIME YOU

  • WALKED ON TO THE SET YOU WERE SO COMPOSED.

  • I JUST THOUGHT OH MY GOD, THIS IS THE MOST NATURAL PERFORMER I

  • HAVE ENSOO.

  • WHAT WAS THAT FIRST DAY LIKE FROM YOUR POINT OF VIEW?

  • WERE YOU NERVOUS GOING IN WITH MERYL STREEP AND NIKOLE KIDMAN.

  • >> THANK GOODNESS FOR YOU AND ALL THE ACTORS THAT LOOKED OUT

  • BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT GOING 10-1 MEANT.

  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT CRAFT MEANT.

  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT A FIRST-- WAS OR THAT THERE WAS A SECRETARY

  • ONE.

  • SO THANK YOU FOR GUIDING ME THROUGH MY FIRST DAY.

  • >> James: WELL, I CAN REMEMBER THERE WAS A REALLY LOVELY MOMENT

  • WHEN YOU CAME ON, WE HAD BEEN FILMING I THINK, MYSELF AND

  • NICOLE AND MERYL AND ANDREW AND YOU ARRIVED SORT OF LATER THAT

  • DAY.

  • AND THERE WAS A REALLY INCREDIBLE MOMENT WHERE MERYL,

  • JUST SAY WHAT MERYL STREEP DID WHEN YOU ARRIVED ON SET.

  • I THINK IT SAYS A LOT ABOUT HER AND A LOT ABOUT YOU.

  • >> WE WERE FILMING IN THE HOTEL LOBBY AND I WALKED IN.

  • AND ALL YOU DPIES WERE SITTING ON THE COUCHES TALKING WITH EACH

  • OTHER AND LAUGHING WITH EACH OTHER.

  • AND I WALKED OVER AND MERYL SCOOTED OVER AND MADE A SWEET

  • FOR ME, LITERALLY MADE ROOM FOR ME AND SYMBOLICALLY IT WAS LAKE

  • HEY, YOU ARE A PART OF THIS CAST.

  • YOU ARE ONE OF THIS, AND LET'S DO THIS THING.

  • IT IS STILL ONE OF MY MOST TREASURED MEMORIES OF THAT

  • EXPERIENCE.

  • >> James: SO GREAT.

  • I HAVE SUCH GREAT MEMORIES OF ALL THOSE DAYS.

  • I WANT TO TALK ABOUT, YOU AND YOUR COSTAR IN THE FILM.

  • ARIANA DEBOSE, THE TWO OF YOU WERE SO BRILLIANT IN THE SHOW.

  • YOU HAVE LAUNCHED THE UNARE YOULY HEARTS INITIATIVE.

  • CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHAT THIS IS, WHAT IT IS AND HOW THEY CAN BE

  • INVOLVED.

  • >> YES, THANK YOU FOR BRUNGING THAT UP.

  • WE STARTED THE UNRESULTY HEARTS INITIATIVE FOR ANYONE WHO FEELS

  • CALLED TO ACTION AFTER WATCHING THE PROM WHERE IT IS TO GET HELP

  • OR TO GIVE HELP.

  • SO THIS YEAR FOR 2021 WE ARE PARTNERING WITH THREE FANTASTIC

  • ORGANIZATIONS WHO ARE DOING INCREDIBLE WORK.

  • THE TREVOR WERE JECT, COVENANT HOUSE AND THE POINT FOUNDATION.

  • AND SO WE ARE CONNECTING OUR YOUNG LGBTQ AUDIENCES WITH THESE

  • ORGANIZES AND RAISING MONEY FOR THEM.

  • AND I AM SO EXCITED FOR THE YEAR TO COME.

  • >> James: THAT IS A WONDERFUL THING.

  • IT HAS BEEN THE GREATEST PLEASURE OF THIS WHOLE JOB,

  • REALLY, GETTING TO KNOW YOU.

  • AND I'M SO EXCITED FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD TO SEE HOW

  • UNBELIEVABLY GIFTED AND TALENTED AND WONDERFUL YOU ARE.

  • I LOVE YOU VERY, VERY MUCH, JO "ELLEN" PELLMAN, EVERYBODY.

  • THE PROM IS ON NETFLIX RIGHT NOW.

I'M THRILLED TO INTRODUCE TO EVERYONE TONIGHT THE DELIGHTFUL
