Debra Messing on her iconic role: "I believe we will be be 'Will' and 'Grace' forever, until we die"

Following their heart-warming and entertaining interview on "Piers Morgan Live," (airs 9p), actors Eric McCormack and Debra Messing were gracious enough to join Jason Kurtz in the show's "Green Room" for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes chat.

Best-known for their iconic portrayals as the title characters in NBC's hit comedy "Will & Grace," the duo reflected on how quickly time has passed since the show captured America's attention, and subsequently, its hearts:

"It feels like five years," Messing tells Kurtz, the program's Digital Producer. "Really, it's insane that it's been 15 years."

McCormack breaks the program's existence into two subsets:

"The eight years we ran, felt like this much," he says, bringing his hands close together as to indicate something small. "And I can't believe it's been seven years since we stopped shooting."

Asked by Kurtz about the challenges of forever being associated with one character, and one show, Messing expressed only gratification and fulfillment:

"I believe that we will be be 'Will" and 'Grace' forever, until we die, and it's something I am really proud of."

McCormack, meanwhile, noted his appreciation for the viewing public's acceptance of his and his co-star's work outside the comedy genre:

"That said, I am amazed by the people who have embraced 'Smash,' the people who have embraced 'Perception,'" he says, listing his and Messing's more recent roles. "There are people that amaze themselves, that they can still love 'Will & Grace,' but they can get past that, and as actors, we have to, do our jobs."

Watch the above clip to hear Debra Messing admit to her Reese's Peanut Butter Cup addiction, then tune in this evening at 9 for the pair's full interview with Piers Morgan.
