2. How did you prepare to play such a raw, stripped-down character?
Emily: "When I first auditioned for the role, the only information I really got was that [Jodi] was a recovering meth addict. I did watch quite a few documentaries for the body language and the characteristics of someone that’s either on meth currently—which I am on [meth in] the first scene of the first episode—and then when they’re recovering and coming down.
You just learn a lot about what that stuff can do to your body, especially when you’re trying to get off it. And all of that was played out in the episode. Everything that was written was very true."
