TVLINE | One of my favorite scenes from last season was when Sarah comes into the club to rescue Paul, and you leaned your head into her. It was such a lovely, quiet moment. Was that scripted?
No, not at all, and I was surprised at the reaction from a lot of fans. For some reason, I was compelled, instinctively, to do that. Like, this guy, [Olivier] would probably have killed me. And the fact that I told her to run, and she didn’t and she could have been out of a dangerous encounter, that she came back… It was very sweet, and I just leaned my head in and it worked. It seemed to have melted a lot of people’s hearts. Now I just walk up to random people, whether it’s in a grocery store or a movie theater, and I just give them a little head snuggle. For some reason, it doesn’t seem to have the same effect somehow.(x)
