She also posted stories of her talking about what it was like to play the ‘complexity’ on screen, and how she loved doing it.
‘A lot of the world lives in conditions where they do not have a choice in their future. Their birth dictates what their future is going to be, and that’s a really hard complex thing to understand, and I loved playing that complexity. I leaned into her ignorance a lot more, because even though I knew what the reality was, and that to me, the complexity was very very interesting.’ She said, via her Instagram stories.
