I love comedy and it’s nice to be able to get away from playing only very intense women. Acting for me is about the beauty of expression and pouring yourself into a character and I can’t hold back – I have to push myself to the limit when I’m working. So it was a pleasant challenge to work with an incredible cast and have a lot of fun being part of that atmosphere. It’s nice not to exhaust yourself all the time.
