“We did get a few calls while we were shooting and I was really worried,” Willow admitted.
“As the years went on, I became more locked into these characters for longer periods of time. It’s just the weight of this story, the weight of these experiences, the quality of the cast. It was emotional, it was physical, it was spiritually taxing,” Weil declared.
