She told Television Academy: The Interviews in 2004: “There wasn’t anything unusual about it. Just like with (any other actor), we would discuss the scene and do it. We didn’t try out stuff.”
She said she was close to her dad as Alfred would reportedly take her shopping while she would take him to church when she passed her driving test.
