I have to say that I haven’t watched the Season 1 yet. I have just had my hands full so haven’t gotten down to watching it but I have heard incredible things about it. I have heard that it’s really really cool and it had people hooked right up till the end.”
On working with M Night Shyamalan, she says, “I actually Skyped with M. Night Shyamalan about a week ago and we had a really lovely chat about what Season 2 is going to be about. He wanted me to watch it and then kind of discuss my character little better in depth but I have not come along to doing that yet. He is super excited about the season 2 and he’s like we are moving up a notch with how we are presenting the Season 2.”

I am paired opposite Jason Patric, there’s Djimon Hounsou whose work is of course remarkable and few other incredible actors. They are going to start filming very soon and I will be joining them soon in 3-4 days at most. It should be fun. We will be filming in Vancouver and maybe little bit in LA, so I am going to be stationed out there.”
