Zachary is opening up about receiving a 2016 Tony Awards nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical.

“[I’m] completely beside myself,” Zachary expressed (via Paybill). “Based on everything, all the warm things we’d been hearing, nominations and stuff, I thought maybe [it was] a possibility. But I was in bed last night and just prayed and wanted to be okay if I woke up in the morning and it didn’t happen—to just be at peace knowing I had a job to do and do the best I can. So, to wake up to that kind of news was really… it’s humbling, and I feel gobsmacked.”
