Walter told ET that she often gets suggestions from people she knows to make cameos on her hit series.

‘I’m not bringing them [show creator] Quinta [Brunson] because she is very overwhelmed by that,” Walter noted, adding that she has two famous comedians she would like to see on Abbott Elementary.

“Whoopi Goldberg did the first big movie I was in. She was the star. She was so kind to me, such a beautiful soul. Took care of me when I was heartbroken,” Walter remembers. “And Wanda Sykes who I started a comedy with.”
