“We shot that film before I was shooting The Terror. We shot pretty much everything in Japan. It was really cool. We went to the island and we shot a love scene at Ryokan, which is an old traditional hotel in Japan,” she said. “So it was really, really fun shooting the film and I just really enjoyed playing her.”
