As Emmy season heats up, the Los Angeles Times’ Envelope studio has been as busy as ever. Award contenders including Neil Patrick Harris, Hayley Atwell, Brian Tyree Henry, Sam Heughan, Niecy Nash, Sarah Silverman and Kyle MacLachlan are just a small fraction of the stars that have stopped by to discuss their latest roles.

However, that wasn’t the only talking point on the table. Among the other hot topics? The one show they would go back in time to appear on, getting fired from an acting job, their latest binge watch and, perhaps the most revealing of all, their methods of handling stress — a must during the ever-chaotic awards season in the “Peak TV” era.
