As Ego explained, being a female cast member on SNL comes with its own badge of honor—and family. “What’s incredible is so many women came before us before we got on, who sort of paved the way and set up the true reality that women are just as funny, if not funnier, than men,” the breakout star revealed. “It’s been really great to be a part of that and continue the legacy, in a sense, of the women on the show who have been so great.”
Heidi noted of the SNL sisterhood, “On the show and off the show, we get to see it all the time. What’s wonderful about women is we text each other right afterwards, so it’s like sister support. It’s very cool.”
