‘I just absolutely adore Sharon Horgan, and I’ve worked with [producer and writer] Jeff Astrof, who is so talented, and I read it and just thought, this is such a layered character, I’ve never played something so real and funny and scary.
‘It was just a really layered character that I haven’t ever played before and has so many things to do throughout the series.’
