Priyanka Chopra Opens Up About Her 'Quantico' Audition

Priyanka Chopra looks stunning while stepping out for the 2016 Global Citizen Festival in Central Park on Saturday night (September 24) in New York City.

The day before, the 34-year-old Quantico actress and her co-star Blair Underwood stopped by Good Morning America to talk about new season in New York City.

“When I picked Quantico as a script, I had to meet them and they had to meet me and I had to do a reading,” Priyanka said. “I had never been in a stare-out room with seven people sitting there and had to perform. It was such a weird thing for an actor to do. I mean, I can make a complete idiot out of myself in front of 80,000 people on stage, but that is a moment which is like, my hands are getting sweaty thinking about it.”

FYI: Priyanka is wearing a Johanna Ortiz skirt, Christian Louboutin shoes, and a Global Citizen shirt to the festival. She is wearing a Galvan skirt and top with Paul Andrew shoes to GMA.
