"We had a lot of conversations, seeing through her eyes. We really hard on developing that character together. I was just amazed at her talent, really."

"She`s incredibly good at her craft. She`s incredibly instinctive. She`s incredibly intuitive. She will overcome fear, like no one I`ve met, when it comes to it," he said.
