I’m going to have strange dreams. ‘ But as soon as there is something in front of my face, I get obsessed and I love it. “
Weather Dr. Death not the happiest source material, AnnaSophia still managed to enjoy her time on set. “Even in a pandemic, you can’t shut up the actors,” he revealed. “I loved listening to Alec [Baldwin’s] stories. It has so many stories and it was a great cast. I felt really blessed to be a part of this group of truly extraordinary actors. Josh [Jackson] he’s so talented, smart, and wonderful. How is christian [Slater], Grace [Gummer], Carrie Preston and Jennifer Kim. It was a pleasure working with everyone. “
