Accepting her first Golden Globe for the role in January, Jennifer Coolidge declared Mike “one of the greatest people I’ve ever met.”

Getting candid about the ups and downs of her career, she said playing Tanya had offered her hope and “a new beginning”.

“This is the end, because you did kill me off,” Jennifer told Mike.

“But it doesn’t matter because even if this is the end, you’ve changed my life in a million different ways.”
