The actress also took the opportunity to answer another fan about the challenges of recording the series in accordance with health safety protocols. “It was really hard not being able to walk around on set as we couldn’t interact as much when we weren’t filming,” she said. Also, she revealed that she doesn’t know if the producers will continue talking about Covid-19 in the next few episodes, as it was a very heavy topic for everyone.
