But they made it so seamless and so easy and so comfortable for me. It’s something that I will never forget because of how beautifully and how well I was treated”, via Variety.

She also spoke about joining forces with Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan who also play lead roles in the Tom Harper directorial. She described her filming moments with them and said that she had a “lovely time.”
