The actress talked about all the hardships she went through for the role, she said,

“I had to pay for my own flight from New York to go to Germany because he wouldn’t, even though, obviously, he’s American, but he wouldn’t see me in the U.S. So I had to jump through all these hoops that definitely put my nose out of joint, but I was like, ‘You know what? Fuck him! I’m just gonna do that and prove to him that I can do it.’ And thankfully it all worked out but sometimes it just seems so unfair and you’ve gotta change the narrative.”
