I have an amazing dialect coach who sits with me while I’m getting hair and makeup done and bounces it off me and makes sure I’m in the right place. When I walk on set as Cosima, there’s a dance that happens, which the crew has now taken to doing when they see her coming, and they dance with me. They’re up for the process.
