Chatting with People, Simone shared that Phoebe has taken her under her wing.
“She’s so lovely,” she shared. “There was one week I was feeling quite stressed out about certain things and she took me to a reformer Pilates class and that was really nice. And we just had some girl time.”
Simone added that the entire cast of returning, and new actors, are “all so supportive of one another. We’re a team and there’s no egos in that sense. Everyone understands we’re all in the same boat and we’re in it together.”
While speaking about Kate, Simone classifies her as “really smart.”
“She listens to her own instincts and she’s not easily swayed by what everyone else is doing,” she said. “We meet her in different vulnerable moments and discover her background a little bit more and the family trauma that she holds. There’s a lot of common cause for an audience to relate to her.”
While she can’t say much about season two, Simone did tease that “it’s going to be wonderful. I’ve seen little bits and it’s looking amazing. I’m really proud of all of us as a cast and crew. I think everyone’s smashing it.”
