I was very specific about the choices I made. She's full of contradictions, but I had my own bible of how she thinks and those contradictions make sense to me. One of the things I love about her is her thought process—it's strange, but it's consistent in its strangeness. It's so much fun to do and I'm very grateful to Patrick for trusting me.”
