Here at Anglophenia, we love to bring you behind-the-scenes stories from the world of stage and screen. We recently quizzed actors on the red carpet about stage fright, and they regaled us with their best stories, which you can find here.

But we didn’t stop there.

In a follow-up video, Anglophenia’s Sharon Carpenter asked a host of familiar faces, including Mark Hamill (Star Wars), John Lithgow (Beatriz at Dinner, The Crown), and Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), about their craziest moments performing in front of a crowd. Not surprisingly, everyone had a story.

Hamill kicks off the clip with a anecdote from when he was starring in Amadeus. Out of the corner of his eye, he spotted an audience member climbing up on stage…

BUT we saved the best for last.

Right at the end, Lithgow starts humorous anecdote about a “mortifying” wardrobe malfunction, which took place, ironically, while he was starring in the play The Changing Room.

We’re sure you’re clamoring for more details. Luckily, we have the full, uncensored version at the interview below, and it’s not for the faint hearted:

TMI, John! But we still love you.

On that note… did these stories surprise (the pants off) you?
