Metz responded to interest surrounding her candid discussion over her character's weight loss journey and the real-life parallels, telling ET it's a topic that's still not talked about enough.
"I think it's still weird for people to be like, 'Oh she's the big girl, oh she's on network television.' I think that's still really new for them and I think it's an education and the more that we see people who are average or plus size, we're like, 'Oh it's not scary, it's not a weird thing.' I think they just want to talk about it because it's not talked about a lot."
Earlier this year, Metz spoke to ET about why her character resonates with so many viewers.
