No.

What do you like/dislike about your character?
It was fun to be a total nightmare.

Tell us your most memorable experience while shooting this series.
I only worked one day, but it was fun getting to say whatever outlandish thing popped into my head.

How did you come to be a part of this project?
I was a student of Lauren Patrice Nadler’s and she asked if I was interested in being a part of it.

What was is like working with your long time teacher wearing the director hat?
Not really all that different from working with her in class, actually.

How collaborative or how much freedom did you have to “play” or improvise on set?
It was both collaborative and very free. We chatted, she said “let’s see what happens,” and then we went from there.

What was the funnest part of shooting this episode?
Definitely my hair and makeup!

Personal notes or comments about this episode:
I think almost everyone was really stunned by how horrible I was making Tanya. It was pretty funny, actually, watching everyone have that, “Oh my god, what is wrong with this girl?” look on their faces while we were shooting.
