Star of Hit Series ‘Transparent’ Tells Orchestra ‘Quiet, Please’ in Hebrew at Emmy Awards (VIDEO)
The star of the hit TV series “Transparent” received wide applause at the Emmy Awards on Sunday night, when he admonished the orchestra to keep quiet — in Hebrew.
Jeffrey Tambor — who plays Maura (formerly Morton) Pfefferman on the Amazon show about a Jewish father who announces to his family that he is transgender — said, “Sheket b’vakasha” to the band, when it tried to signal that his acceptance speech was going on too long.
Tambor, who is Jewish, won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.
