“The bunny was the one thing I had a question about,” she shared.

She revealed that she actually took the script to a psychiatrist and asked if the behavior was possible and was told it was.

That’s when the character became “very interesting” to her. She shared that, '”I had a huge empathy for that character by the end of the process.”
