The Project’s Tommy Little leaves Danielle McCormack baffled after asking bizarre questions

‘My researcher is fired!’ The Project’s Tommy Little leaves Danielle Cormack baffled after asking bizarre questions and getting facts about her career wrong during embarrassing interview

The perils of interviewing celebrities on live television are well documented. 

And The Project’s Tommy Little encountered this first hand during a cringeworthy segment with Wentworth and Xena: Warrior Princess star Danielle Cormack on Sunday. 

During the interview, the New Zealand actress was left baffled after being asked a series of bizarre and ill-researched questions. 

The first blunder occurred when Tommy incorrectly assumed that she still attends Xena fan conventions, despite only appearing in the show for six episodes. 

‘Xena was a massive institution. I understand there’s still fan conventions and stuff that happened now?’ Tommy asked. 

Gracefully ignoring the error, Danielle responded: ‘There used to be. I attended quite a few in the States when the show was big.’

‘So they don’t happen anymore?’ Tommy sheepishly said. 

‘Not so much…’ responded Danielle, prompting Tommy to joke: ‘My researcher is fired!’ 

Later, Tommy suffered another faux pas when asked the celebrated actress: ‘Is it strange we call short films shorts but we don’t call long films longs?’

‘Is that on your list? What are you doing?’ panelist Susie Youssef scolded Tommy. 

‘Wow…’, a stunned Danielle responded. 

By the end of the chat, Tommy had no choice but to apologise for his lacklustre questions. 

‘I’m so sorry. Danielle, you’ve been great and on behalf of me, I’m sorry.

Danielle proved to be good sport, however, responding with a laugh: ‘You have no reason to be sorry. It’s been highly entertaining!’ 

Taking it well! Danielle proved to be good sport, however, responding with a laugh: 'You have no reason to be sorry. It's been highly entertaining!'
