"I enjoy being able to take on different socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. And so, when I was given this opportunity to play this woman, a slave, from a time that really is not a part of my everyday life, it was such a gift, as an actor, to lend myself to that kind of story. Our discussions were always geared toward character and creating a real human being on screen. I, of course, did what I needed to do in order to bring that person into the room, and it was really about not only trying to find the inner workings of the character, but also the external circumstances and the physicality that would have lent itself to that inner character. And that’s what we really focused on building. So we never had, like, some sort of bigger picture discussion, and I’m really looking forward to seeing that discussion happening on the public platform."
