Jesse Williams guest stars on Sesame Street

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text][templatera id="4031"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column_text]For Sesame Street visitors of all ages, characters like Elmo, Grover, and Cookie Monster aren't just pieces of felt and faux fur on a human arm they're living, breathing creatures.

Grey's Anatomy actor Jesse Williams felt that same alchemy when he filmed a guest appearance on Sesame Street. Williams appears on Thursday's episode, teaching viewers about the word furious alongside Elmo and a fly named Felix.

Though Williams had never acted with puppets before, it didn't take long for him to adjust. I think about Elmo as a person, he tells EW. Once the camera's rolling, it's Elmo, and Elmo's riffing. He's alive, we're both ad-libbing and making it work.

Growing up, Williams watched Sesame Street with his two brothers, and he recalls being a fan of Bert and Ernie, Grover, and Big Bird. Though Elmo joined Sesame Street later in Williams childhood, he was still thrilled to learn that he'd be appearing alongside the red guy. I was excited because Elmo is a slick character, Williams says. A lot of smart, under-the-breath humor. Very witty, very fast, which is an ideal scene partner. So I was excited, and I knew that it would be fun and that it would be spontaneous and we'd get to riff a bit and improv a little bit.[/vc_column_text][/vc_row]
