It was really just the normal way. My manager called with an audition. I worked on it with my husband and then went it to read for the casting director, Geralyn Flood. She was great and gave me some thoughts about the character. It was really easy because it felt really natural to be Mrs. Knight.

Are you anything like your character, Mrs. Knight?
Yes and no. I am very nurturing and protective of my friends and family. I have two kids in real life. But I’m not as trusting as Mrs. Knight. Maybe that’s because my kids are little. That’s something I probably need to learn from my character as my kids grow up.
Is there a Mr. Knight?
Mr. Knight is still a bit of a mystery.
