Amazon ‘Transparent’ Star Jeffrey Tambor: ‘I Was Throw-Up Nervous’ on Coming-Out Scene

“I was nervous, and still am, ” confessed “Transparent” star, Jeffrey Tambor, talking about when it came time for his transgender character, Maura, to initially reveal her new identity to the Pfefferman children.

Tambor admitted he was “throw-up nervous” about the situation. His thinking, he said, was that “I need to do it correctly for the community, because their lives are at stake.”

Tambor spoke at the Paley Center for Media in New York — organized to promote the series to Prime time Emmy Awards voters. Tambor nabbed a 2015 Golden Globe for his role in “Transparent”. The show’s producer, Amazon Studios, also won the Globe for best musical or comedy series.

“Every daydream I had is coming true now, ” said Tambor. “I’m very grateful.”

Amazon is considering to place “Transparent” in the best comedy series categories, including pushing Tambor for best actor. The studio is also soliciting Emmy voters on the original main title theme music, composed by Dustin O’Halloran.

Soloway said about Tambor’s character, “I feel like we protected her a little bit in season 1… more than we should have. Maura is the most normal person in the group. It’s about a family coming to terms with itself, rather than a person going through a transition.”

Soloway said that Bruce Jenner — the Olympic athlete who has revealed herself to be transgender — watched “Transparent.”

She added, “It helped Bruce feel more comfortable coming out.”
