“General meetings are usually pretty straightforward and involve just getting to know each other, so you typically don’t have to prepare much, which is nice. So, this was a general, but there was a script, which was cool. I read the script on the plane and I was like, Oh god, this is really good. Then, I was like, Oh, I hope they didn’t already find the lady for this because I loved it,“ Anna explained.
“I was sitting there thinking the role wasn’t available and it was just to showcase what Shonda was up to. So, I met Shonda and Betsy Beers and it was wonderful. Then, Shonda asked me what I thought of the script and I don’t think I had even finished it at the time. I was just crazy about her approach to this type of story. We both dished about how much we love limited series, and by the end, I knew I wanted to work for Shonda and specifically on this project. Then, I found out they wanted me for it too. I love to act, so if you give me a chance to, I will do my best.”
