Visually it really took you back to that place in time, which was surprising as a viewer ’cause it makes you forget that it doesn’t exist anymore.
LINDSAY: I know! And all the costumes. You put on that costume and you’re instantly transformed into another time. It’s great.
So this was like a microcosm because you were working on the mini-series. How long were you filming in Romania?
LINDSAY: We were there for almost four months. We started in September and ended in December. So we had full spectrum of weather and climate change.
That’s quite a lengthy amount of time, even for a mini-series, to be working together.
LINDSAY: It was. It was a good cast. We all got along really well, which is hard to do when there is such a big cast. But we all got along great.
Portraying Rosanna, you again had such a wealth of dramatic scenes to portray. Was there one that was particularly difficult for you to work with because of what she was going through?
LINDSAY: I quite prefer the emotional scenes. I think that, for some reason, they come a little bit easier for me. Kevin Reynolds, the director, he was so great about working with me and kind of forming the scenes. He was really just a great leader and collaborator in some of these scenes that are really emotional. One in particular was when Roseanna gave birth to the baby ’cause I haven’t been a mom. So those emotions and going through that was kind of strange, but it felt really special at the same time. That was really emotional for me.
