At the White House press conference this Monday, the cast of the
series has stolen the spotlight from Karine Jean-Pierre, the institution's press secretary.
The actors of the popular Apple TV+ series, which has won 11 Emmy Awards and premiered its third season last week, have visited the President of the United States, Joe Biden, to talk with him about the importance of mental health.
In the video that accompanies this news you can see the speech that the main actor, Jason Sudeikis, has offered to journalists to raise awareness about this problem: "We all know someone who has felt alone," he specified.
This comedy about the world of soccer has tackled the problem of mental health through the character played by Sudeikis, a soccer coach seeking therapy after dealing with panic attacks.
As seen in the video, after finishing his speech, Sudeikis received a question from a "fake journalist".
The intervention of the actor who plays Trent Crint, who practices this profession in the series, has caused a lot of laughter in the press room.
Actress Hannah Waddingham (Rebecca Welton in the series) was also present at the event along with Brett Goldstein (Roy Kent), Toheeb Jimoh (Sam Obisanya) and Brendan Hunt, who plays Coach Beard, Ted Lasso's right-hand man in the Serie.
Speculation about the cast's visit to the White House began Sunday night when Biden tweeted a photo of a sign with the word
The poster was placed above one of the doors of the Oval Office of the White House, and it is the same one that Ted Lasso has in the locker room office of the AFC Richmond football team.
