Allison Janney wants to 'walk and talk' again in the West Wing
The seven-Emmy award winner played White House press secretary CJ Cregg in the hit political drama, which ran from 1999 to 2006.
Allison said the political situation in America ahead of the presidential election meant viewers were “wishing” for the return of fictional President Jed Bartlet, played by Martin Sheen.
She told the Press Association: “I love all my compadres from the West Wing. I’ve been seeing them a lot lately. I would love to walk the halls again with them at a fast pace walk and talk. It would be a thrill.
“Here people are looking at the political scene and wishing there was a Jed Bartlet again. I’m with Hillary. I hope she can bring back some sense.”
Allison, 56, won three Emmy awards for her performance in the West Wing, including outstanding supporting actress in a drama series in 2001 and outstanding lead actress in a drama series in 2002 and 2004. She has since won an Emmy for her guest role in Masters Of Sex and another two for playing recovering drug addict Bonnie Plunkett in the comedy series Mom.
