Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes her in an interview, "‘Ted Lasso’ Stars Weigh in on the Lion vs. Panda Debate" by Meghan O'Keefe, Decider, 20 July 2021 [1]: “What would you rather be? A lion or a panda?” That was the question that Juno Temple‘s Keeley posed to a group that included Ted (Jason Sudeikis), Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham), and then-boyfriend Jamie Tartt (Phil Dunster) all the way back in Ted Lasso Season 1 Episode 2. Now, as we’re counting down the days until Ted Lasso Season 2 premieres on Apple TV+, we thought it would be fun to revisit this hilarious moment with the Ted Lasso cast off-screen.

Decider sat down with the cast of Ted Lasso a few weeks ago to press them on all things Ted Lasso Season 2. But in between asking spoiler-filled questions and gushing over our favorite onscreen ‘ships, we posed the same question that Keeley once did: What would you rather be? A lion or a panda?

Hannah Waddingham herself kicked off the great debate by exuberantly agreeing with her alter-ego, Rebecca. “Uh, hello? I’m Leo, Leo rising, and Year of the Tiger,” she said, listing off her astrological credentials. “That’s why I love that last line, when [Rebecca] says, ‘What’s black and white and red all over? A panda that gets anywhere near a f*cking lion.'"
