"It’s taken me a long time to find anybody who I thought had as much potential as [Sex and the City
’s] Carrie Bradshaw, who was as complicated, human, layered, and objectionable yet understandable, relatable yet foreign," she says about her character, Frances. "People think she was a second skin for me, but she wasn’t. I didn’t know her at first. She was different from me as anybody I'd ever played or known. So I feel like Frances is equally as interesting and unknown to me."
