Emma stated that she found it difficult to portray the complex, but painful experience. “I was trying to find the right gauge of where she is in each episode, and what I had to get into my head as well, is that you see one side of Maggie, which is the slightly performative, how she wants everyone to see her, and then the audience also gets to see what’s going on in her head.”

Maggie is trying to make Maggie feel better and “happy for her friend”, Emma said. But Maggie also says she feels lost and sad.
