How Debra Messing tricked Madonna on set of Will & Grace. Debra Messing revealed she played a joke on Madonna while they were filming ‘Will & Grace’ after the singer couldn’t remember her name. The 49-year-old actress is back on the small screen as Grace Alder in the revival of the hit 90s show and during the sitcom’s first TV run – of which they were nominated for 29 Golden Globes – the show featured many celebrity guests, including Cher and the ‘Material Girl’ singer. And Debra recalled how she told Madonna that her name was actually “Rachal” which turned out to Madonna’s Kabbalah name. Appearing on ‘The Graham Norton Show‘ – which airs on BBC One this Friday night (09.02.18) – alongside Eric McCormack, who plays Will Truman, Debra said: “Madonna didn’t have a clue who we were and she could not remember our names so I told her mine was Rachal. She said, ‘Really? That is my Kabbalah name.’ I said, ‘How about that!’ So for the rest of the week she called me Rachal. When she finally realised that wasn’t my name she sent me roses with a note written to ‘Dear Debra’.” Eric, 54, interjected and spilled that the pop megastar wanted to get a tattoo of his name on her arm after shooting her scenes. He said: “The same thing happened to me and she sent flowers and a note saying, ‘If my husband would let, I’d tattoo your name on my arm.'” The actor also revealed that he managed to get Sir Elton John to agree to a cameo in the hit series, by calling in a favour from his old friend David Furnish – the music legend’s husband. Eric said: “I grew up with David Furnish so that’s how Elton ended up on the show. David called one day to say he was in town so I invited him to dinner and he brought Elton with him. I was trying to be cool but had just enough wine to ask him to christen our new piano. When he asked what he should play I thought ‘I’m not going to be a schmuck and ask for ‘Rocket Man’. So I said, ‘I’ve Seen That Movie Too’ from ‘Yellow Brick Road’.’ And he looked up at me and said, ‘I don’t remember that song!'”
