【ER】Emmy誌に回顧特集

Emmy誌にERの回顧特集記事が。元は紙媒体だが、オンラインにもアップされていて、pdfで雑誌をスキャンしたものも読めるようになっていて、懐かしい素敵な写真も堪能できる。

また古株のプロデューサーを始め、新旧キャスト陣もコメントを寄せていて、懐かしいあの人の姿も。だが、悲しいかなMekhi Phiferのコメントはなし。何気に長かったのになぁ。

今後のエピ(主にフィナーレ)のネタバレは一切なし。

Paging All Staff! Stat! A Look Back at ER
After fifteen seasons―and a record 122 Primetime Emmy noms, the machines will stop beeping, the IVs stop dripping and the gurneys stop rolling. But before the doors swing shut April 2 at Chicago’s County General, producers and stars of ER look back on a medical series like no other.

When John Wells sent me Michael Crichton’s script of ER in 1994, I was a fourth-year medical student at Harvard, thinking about applying for my residency in pediatrics.

Crichton had written the script while he was a medical student at Harvard, almost twenty-five years before. It lay dormant all those years, until Steven Spielberg and his team plucked it from obscurity―legend now has it that it was tucked away in a trunk in Spielberg’s office.

I read the script and was floored. “This is my life,” I told Wells. “It’s about all of us ― doctors and residents and medical students ― and it’s still true, except we no longer use glass IV bottles.” Crichton got it right. He captured the truth I was living: the struggles, pain and elation of becoming a doctor.

I flew to L.A. in May, armed with a hundred stories of my medical school misadventures and victories. (When Noah Wyle’s John Carter was puked on, peed on or screwed up drawing blood, it had happened to me.) We were hoping for a pickup of thirteen episodes, and I planned to stay for two months at most to break stories.

There were six writers, and we met every day for seven or eight hours, trying to figure out what the hell we were doing. We chose not to tell one main story, as previous medical series had done, but many: some without beginnings (we just swooped into the middle of a trauma) and some without endings (the patient went up to the ICU and was never heard from again).

It was risky, confusing, daunting and exhilarating. We’d talk and talk for hours about each character ― Benton, Green, Ross, Lewis, Hathaway and Carter ― until it felt like we knew them as well as our closest friends. We never dreamed the show would hit like a meteor. We just hoped we wouldn’t embarrass ourselves with a third-place finish.

I’ll never forget the moment I realized that ER was not like anything an audience had ever seen.

Wells took the writers to walk the new set, to give notes. I was struck by its authenticity; I felt I was back in Boston in my hospital. I knew we could tell stories on this expansive, yet surprisingly intimate set. We could chase after the doctors down the hallways, into exam rooms, through swinging doors with the new Steadicam. We would have what Wells liked to call “pace and pathos.”

I can’t say for certain what was the secret of ER’s success. Certainly much of it was the camaraderie and vast imagination of the writers who, that first year, planted the seeds for years to come. And the cast had that elusive magic: they simply clicked.

They were doctors who’d do anything to save a patient. They were heroes. But they were fallible, human and at times very screwed up. It was truly a perfect marriage of writers, directors and actors ― along with an extraordinarily talented crew ― who made us care about characters Michael Crichton had invented almost a quarter-century before.

After ER, medical shows would never be the same.

We were the first to use real doctor-writers to bring the complexities of treating patients into the dialogue. Now every medical series has doctor-writers on their staffs. We made it look real by teaching the actors medical procedures (Wyle can suture with the best of them, and Eriq La Salle can tie one-handed knots like a pro).

Wells let us break lots of rules, and the freedom was delicious. We flew by the seat of our pants ― and it was a blast.

Producers

ccJohn Wells
Executive producer

“We took our first trip to shoot in Chicago in the summer of ’94, before ER had gone on the air. We didn’t have any security with us, didn’t need it, nobody paid us any attention. George [Clooney] and Tony [Edwards] just stood on the street doing their scenes while people went around us, irritated that we were in their way.

“Four months later, we went back to Chicago to shoot after the show had gone on the air, thinking that it would be the same. But a local radio station announced on air that we were shooting near the Water Tower, and 4,000 people showed up on Michigan Avenue to watch us shoot, scream and try to get to the actors.

“We didn’t have any security, and the director, a couple of drivers and a few producers had to try and hold back this huge crowd. They kept screaming and pushing to get closer to George and Tony. We finally got backed off the street and into the rear of a restaurant and had to ditch out the rear door and escape down an alley. We never did get the scene shot. That was the night I realized the show might actually be a hit.”


ccChristopher Chulack
Executive producer–director

“Early in the second year, we shot 'Hell and High Water,' which was the first episode shot outside the hospital, and it incorporated a lot of physical action. George Clooney, who played Dr. Ross, was rescuing a twelve-year-old boy who was stuck inside a storm drain at night, and the two of them were blown out by the extreme water pressure into a reservoir.

“We had been shooting for three consecutive nights. Everyone was soaking wet for fifteen hours on end, and we were shooting part of a sequence where Clooney had to dive underwater and find the boy. As he emerges from the water, an unseen helicopter with an intense spotlight finds Clooney holding the lifeless body of the boy in a very heroic shot. As part of the action, Clooney was supposed to rush to the shoreline carrying the boy, to administer CPR as it continued to rain.

“I kept instructing George in take after take that he needed to get to the shoreline a lot quicker. Finally he yelled back to me, ‘You cast a kid who’s 150 pounds of deadweight!’ My response to him was: ‘I thought you’d want me to hire the best actor instead of a lightweight.’ I remember the vivid glare in his eye and knew that if he could get out of the water and get to me, he would punch me. But being the professional that he is, he was finally able to execute the shot in his characteristically professional manner.”


ccDavid Zabel
Executive producer

“For a series of episodes set in Darfur, we shot the IDP [refugee] camp portions on location in a remote part of South Africa to lend authenticity to the look and feel of the story.

“I remember huddling with Mekhi Phifer at one point under some small covered area ― we were both sweating through our clothes, it was well over 100 degrees at ten in the morning and tiny sand twisters were popping up periodically and tearing the tarp coverings off the makeshift refugee dwellings.

"Extras were chasing down the damaged set pieces, a second AD was shouting instructions through a megaphone in Afrikaans, Noah Wyle was shaking his head and kicking the dust a few feet away, sending a brood of chickens skittering.

“Mekhi looked over at me and said, ‘Hey, Dave, you hired me to play an inner-city doctor at a Chicago hospital, right?’ I nodded. ‘Then what the hell are we doing out here in the middle of the damn Kalahari desert?’ I thought about it for a moment. All I could come up with was the deflated sigh of producers everywhere: ‘Not making our day.’”

“It wasn’t just life-changing for the six of us ― it changed viewing habits for millions of people. It’s a testament to good writing. I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this show.”

Jorja Fox
Dr. Maggie Doyle

“The first time Anthony Edwards directed ER, he had this epic idea to shoot all of act two as one fluid Steadicam shot. We came in and rehearsed it all morning like a stage play.

The scene took place in the emergency room and included almost the entire cast and recurring cast and several guest actors ― maybe thirty actors altogether. If I remember right, the camera followed Laura Innes’s character, Dr. Weaver, through five or six rooms and several hallways.

“My material was at the beginning of the shot and the end of the shot. The most nerve-wracking place to be in a scene on ER is at the end. If everyone gets it right ― through twists and turns and medical procedures and racing gurneys ― I’d feel terrible if I’d walk in at the end and mess up the entire take, which I did on more than several occasions. Now amplify that pressure by being at the end of an entire act! I was just a bit out-of-my-mind nervous at the start of the day.

“Legendary Steadicam operator Dave Chameides shot that entire sequence. After several takes, as Dave would turn the corner near the end of a very long stretch of shooting ― through doors and rooms and moving forward and backward and every which way ― Anthony Edwards would yell, ‘Cut!’ and Dave would fall to his knees from the weight of the camera. I will never forget the thrill and the adrenaline of that day. We were all able to say that we shot an entire act of an hour-long drama in six or so hours, and I think it came out great.”

Alex Kingston
Dr. Elizabeth Corday
“We ― the actors, writers, producers and our loved ones ― were privileged to be invited to the White House for a dinner during the Clinton administration. It was winter, and after returning to our hotel, we discovered that we were snowed in and would not be able to fly home. So, we converged in one of the rooms and started to play ― I think I may have instigated it! ― a mad and lengthy game of charades. I will never forget the sight of our writers contorting themselves into strange shapes, unable to use their usual tools to express themselves. We laughed, we wept and we had a strange bonding experience that night which I will never forget.” more

Ming-Na
Dr. Jing-Mei “Deb” Chen
“My first pregnancy was written into the show, and I was close to nine months pregnant when we shot the scenes where my character gave birth to her baby. The cast and crew worried my water would break for real! Since this was my first pregnancy, I had no idea what it was like to give birth. As directed, Dr. Chen screamed and sweated through her birthing process, which I thought was a bit too exaggerated and dramatic.

“My husband and I were taking hypno-birthing classes and envisioned a peaceful, smooth, Zen-like delivery. Well, after twenty hours of labor without drugs, the pain was so intense, I begged for an epidural! Another ten hours of labor and over two hours of pushing later, my beautiful daughter Michaela was born. The next day, I called director Jonathan Kaplan and told him we needed to reshoot all those birthing scenes. I told him, ‘I didn’t scream loud enough!’”

Sherry Stringfield
Dr. Susan Lewis

“The first read-through still stands out to me ― meeting everyone for the first time and the excitement we all had to be working on this project. I had read all of Michael Crichton’s books and was a big fan of his, and it was so exciting sitting with him at a table reading his script!”

Parminder Nagra
Dr. Neela Rasgotra

“One of my most vivid memories is from the funeral scene for [Dr. Michael] Gallant [Sharif Atkins’s character, who was killed in Iraq]. It was a very cold Chicago day. We used real military men, and I will never forget the image of the American flag being folded and the guns being shot into the air. It was such a strong emotional moment, given what was actually going on in the world.” more

Laura Innes
Dr. Kerry Weaver

“I remember vividly my first trauma scene. I had gotten all new pages the night before ― the patient had transformed from a gunshot gang kid to a football player with blunt-force trauma. I was freaking out about relearning this very challenging medical dialogue, let alone performing a realistic-looking pericardiocentesis.

“What I remember most was how incredibly nice and funny everyone was. I came on in year two as a guest star, and the show was white hot. It was incredibly intimidating, but the group was wonderful. Tony [Edwards] was in that trauma ― he was so at ease and funny. I remember him joking that I must have had a ‘code brown’ when I saw the rewrites.

“Doing that first trauma was utterly challenging ― the pace, the very specific and authentic medical business, the technical dialogue ― I could barely put on my gloves. I remember being aware of trying to hide my hands below the frame line because my gloves were all screwed up, but I just kept thinking, ‘Keep going. Maybe no one will notice you don’t know what you’re doing.’

“It went well ― it was such a thrill ― and afterwards I was standing outside Stage 11 in my bloody gown. A background player with a massive head wound was talking to his agent on his cell phone, and the sky was gorgeous against the hills, all pink and orange. Our d.p. at the time, Richard Thorpe, was leaning against the railing, smoking a cigarette. He looked like a cowboy. ‘You did good, kid,’ he said. It felt like something out of an old movie. It was a great day.”

CCH Pounder
Dr. Angela Hicks

“Sometimes the best memories are of what happened off the set, because of the cast. During my second season of ER, my husband and I were building a small contemporary museum in Senegal ― a completely ludicrous idea ― by ourselves, with no corporate or government funding, and I asked the cast if they would help. George [Clooney] and Noah [Wyle], along with Lorraine Toussaint, trudged out to Malibu, to Carol Levy’s house, and we did a backyard poetry reading.

“A small but lovely crowd showed up and donated. It made me so proud, having actors share their talents for a worthy cause. What’s fantastic is that they have continued to volunteer their talents to bring attention to so many greater problems in Africa and the rest of the world. I hardly see them now, but I consider them friends for life. By the way, the museum is built and is fifteen years old. Thanks, ER.” more

Michael Michele
Dr. Cleo Finch

“I had prepared day and night for my first day of filming. In fact, I had overly prepared. My first scene was not only with a real newborn baby, but also a mind-twisting, fast-paced trauma scene. After more than seventeen takes, I realized I had not prepared for how nervous I’d be on my first day. Near take twenty, Eriq La Salle came to the set and said to me and everyone listening: ‘Don’t feel badly. My first day was very similar. But can you hurry up now? I’d like to go home today!’ I laughed and was finally able to complete the scene. Fortunately, the ice had finally broken after an astounding twenty-plus takes!”

John Stamos
Dr. Tony Gates

“I did two episodes as a guest star while I was doing my own show, Jake in Progress. My happiest moment was when they canceled my show and I became a regular on ER.”

Paul McCrane
Dr. Robert Romano

“Eriq La Salle can be an extremely warm, outgoing guy, but on the set he seemed to want to maintain a certain distance, an aloofness, similar to that of the character he played. I consider myself respectful of others’ work processes, but I did get a kick out of trying to break him up. I only succeeded once: we were doing a scene in the surgery suite, and I started to box with him. He worked hard at keeping it together, but as I bobbed and weaved, he cracked and let out a laugh. He, of course, quickly recovered, but I felt a great sense of satisfaction.”

Shane West
Dr. Ray Barnett

“At the end of season thirteen, Neela [Parminder Nagra] finds Ray in a different hospital after he had been missing for several weeks. She also finds that he has been in a huge accident and that his legs have been amputated. It was a very difficult scene to shoot, and everyone was teary-eyed that day. I don’t think we ever realized how powerful those scenes were going to be. And I don’t think we ever realized that the fans were going to be so upset.” more

Sharif Atkins
Dr. Michael Gallant

“I fondly recall the warmth and open arms with which I was received by both cast and crew when I began working on the show. The gesture that left the most indelible mark on my memory is Anthony Edwards offering me a ride to Chicago on a private jet to see my family for a weekend. Now, he wasn’t just randomly offering free flights to native Chicagoans ― he did have business in the city. That particular weekend, if my memory serves me correctly, he was running a half marathon there and was being accompanied by his kids and a friend. Having overheard I was from there, he offered me a ride.

“It was an unexpected blessing because it allowed me to spend time with my very ill maternal grandfather, Walter J. Triche, Sr., who passed away as we were flying back to California. Thanks, Anthony. And thank you to all the cast and crew for making one of my first huge jobs a helluva experience.”

Maria Bello
Dr. Anna Del Amico

“My fondest and most exhilarating experience was the live episode we did in the fourth season. In one scene, George was talking to a mother of a sick toddler whom he was holding. The kid started howling and you couldn’t hear George, so I grabbed the kid from him and shoved a lollipop in his mouth. The sound guys were very happy!”

William H. Macy
Dr. David Morganstern

“I played Dr. Morganstern for about three years. My favorite moment came when my character had a heart attack and was himself a patient. In one of the scenes, I was tanked up on pain medication and I talked our director, Chris Chulack, into letting me drop the TV remote control on the floor, so that when Laura Innes came in the room she got a clear view of my rear end. Chris was hesitant, but finally agreed, warning me, ‘You just make sure this doesn’t turn into a three shot.’” more

“One of my most vivid memories happened not while I was on the set. It happened in a pharmacy. I was picking up some toothpaste and a young man approached me. He said, very politely: ‘Excuse me, I don’t mean to bother you. I just wanted to let you know that I am HIV-positive and I watched your show last night. What I saw made me want to start treatment. Thank you.’ He was on his way to the doctor when he saw me in the store.”


Nurses

Julianna Margulies
Nurse Carol Hathaway

“One of my most vivid memories is from the first season, when Carol has just told her fiancé she can’t marry him, and the wedding party goes on anyway. I was standing up on the stage, about to make a speech to everyone to thank them and apologize for ruining the wedding, and I looked around at all these wonderful faces.

“It was our last episode of the season, and there we all were ― at midnight, on location somewhere in downtown L.A. All these eyes were looking back at me, and I felt like I was home. I scanned the faces, and there was Dr. Ross ― Carol’s one and only ― and George [Clooney] and I locked eyes for a second. I remember thinking, ‘This story has so much more to tell, and I’m so glad I get to be a part of it.’”

Deezer D
Nurse Malik McGrath

“George Clooney and I had a lot of fun. When we shot the live episode, we would pull each other’s shirts and try to make the other person late. We’d elbow each other, then go hit our marks real quick.

“We always used to hurry up and get our scenes done so we could finish our basketball games ― George had them put a court for us right outside the set. We’d check the call sheet and say, ‘Do you have the next scene?’ If we didn’t, we’d change real quick, play basketball, then come back out. Noah Wyle would play too, and from next door, Jaleel White from Family Matters. Sometimes we’d all go to the big Warner Bros. court ― Jamie Foxx, too ― and we would play serious basketball. We would argue, fight, then go back to work and be friends.” more

“In the first season, they brought in a boyfriend for my character. My husband [actor Michael Genovese] had been doing a pilot in Maui, but it wasn’t picked up. So they cast him as my boyfriend, Sergeant Al Grabarski. By the third season, we had gone through a flirtation and dating thing and we were supposed to get married.

“Finally, there was an episode where I came in furious. I said, ‘We’re not getting married!’ I had a box with my wedding dress ― I called it my fake virgin outfit ― and I said I was returning it. Then someone said, ‘You know, there’s a priest here who gave last rites….’ So, we got married in the ER ― I wore the wedding dress with my nurse’s shoes. It was great fun to remarry my husband ― in a bigger dress with lots of lace and a big train.

“The funny thing about the train was that every time I stood still, George [Clooney] would place a couple of coffee cups on it. I caught him doing it ― I was on to him. But he managed the last time to get three or four coffee cups and a phone on it. I’d try to walk away and couldn’t. It was a very fun day.”

Gedde Watanabe
Nurse Yosh Takata

“I assisted Dr. Green [Anthony Edwards] with a procedure called the cricoid press. Of course, I didn’t know anything about most of the procedures we did, and faking it was an actor’s dream ― if you could pull it off.

This one involved pressing on the neck near the vocal cords so that you can get a trach tube down the throat. Well, it was filmed, and about a month later we got a letter from a doctor who saw the procedure we did and saved a patient’s life by watching the episode. I was so moved that this happened. It made me realize how great all our real doctors were on the show.” more

Nurse Samantha Taggart

“My first day on ER, the set doctor knocked on my trailer door at lunch only to find me in there hysterically crying. I had no idea how or when to hand someone a scalpel, that the monitor alarms never really sounded and that the scenes were so quickly and heavily choreographed to seem like chaos. It was all so different from any other job I had had.

The doctor laughed at me (kindly) and told me that everyone he’d ever seen come on the show had had a similar moment and that by the end of the day I’d feel like a medical superhero. He was right, but I have always felt for the newcomers.”

Laura Cerón
Nurse Chuny Marquez

“I had just moved to L.A. from Chicago in January 1995, and I found myself working my first episode in April ― it was the second-to-last of the first season. I remember my first scene, working with Quentin Tarantino, who directed the episode, and meeting the talented and good-looking cast.

I had watched the show on TV in Chicago the previous Christmas, and I’d said while I was watching: ‘I want to be in that show ― it takes place in Chicago and I know that experience!’ I never imagined that the cast, crew and I would become so close and be a part of television history. I’ve also been very proud to represent a Latino character in a positive light for all those years. Thanks to all the writers and executives who made that happen.”

Nurse Haleh Adams

“By the third year, the artists who made our prosthetics had gotten so good ― everything looked so real, including the babies. I remember doing an open-heart surgery scene with Tony Edwards. I’m pressing the Ambu bag, putting the air in, and you can see the heart pumping, the lungs going up and down, the blood flowing.

Meanwhile, the special effects man, Bob Turk, was out of sight, underneath the gurney. We were working together, moving in sync. It all looked so real. I can still see the open heart ― I can still see it all in my mind’s eye."

About
元が腐っているのでナチュラに腐ったことをほざいてるかもしれないブログ。
原作厨というか原作至上主義。ネタバレデフォ。単行本派やネタバレ嫌な人は回れ右のブラウザバックかタブ閉じてこのブログの存在を記憶から抹殺。
米ドラは本国放送した時点(寧ろスポイラー出た時点)でネタ解禁だと思っているし、連載漫画は本誌が発売された時点でネタ解禁だと思っているので日本放送だったり単行本派の人には優しくないブログ。
