Daytime fans already knew how talented Goldsberry is, though the didn’t take home the gold the two times she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for her work on OLTL. But now, with her role in Hamilton, the whole world can see how amazing she is. And her friends from Llanview couldn’t be more excited for her triumph.
“Congratulations to my dear friend,” wrote Kassie DePaiva (Blair) on Twitter. “I am so proud of her, she is so deserving.”
“So proud and happy and just pumped for my friend Renée!” tweeted David Fumero (Cristian). “So well deserved!”
And his wife, Melissa Fumero (Adriana) even took a picture of Goldsberry accepting her Tony on her TV to go along with her praise!
