Amy Ryan came out to support her friend and fellow actor Alec Baldwin last night at the Museum of the Moving Image’s Salute to Alec Baldwin, where she revealed to Niteside that she would like to return to her acting roots on the stage.
“I would like to do a play again before I forget how,” Ryan said on the red carpet at the Cipriani in Midtown. “I want to stay home in New York. I’ve been traveling a lot so if I could find a job here that would be fantastic.”
She was nominated twice in 2000 for the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a play for her role in the Broadway show “Uncle Vanya” and again in 2005 for her role in “A Streetcar Named Desire.”
Ryan has a film called “Win Win” due out later this month, which she stars opposite Paul Giamatti. She can now be seen opposite Steve Carell on “The Office” and said she just returned from shooting her final episode on the show.
“I am very sad to leave it,” Ryan said. “But all good things must come to an end, I suppose.”
