Oh gosh. I feel like Im going to sound like a broken record but I was just so excited to explore everything about her Holland shared. I think I was excited to explore her flaws and her strengths but probably the thing I was most excited about was the physicality of the role because Id never really gotten to really dive into a role that was so physical in any of my past work so getting to go to all of the fight training and the stunt training and work with the incredible stunt team. John Cenas stunt double Spencer I worked with him tirelessly. He was constantly standing in for whatever actor I was going to be working with. And he was just great. And my stunt double Yulia was incredible. I love her so much. She makes me look so badass on this show. But yes so probably the physicality and the fights and shooting the guns and all of that stuff.
