We all know people like Andrea, and we’ve all been on the other side, so for me it’s about representing humanity. As an actress, one of the first lessons you learn is that you do not judge your characters. In fact, I think at times, in terms of my mind in playing her, she felt like she was the victim. That’s my process.
