Felicitas’ husband informed Page Six that she almost lost her cool when he was getting ready to feature in “The Alienist” as he had numerous questions for her. While noting that Felicitas is a practicing psychotherapist, the 42-year-old stated:

“Before we went to bed, I would ask her questions … She had her moments of, ‘Would you leave me alone?’ But she was very helpful.”
