“I am playing a woman who is pretty detached from the thing that’s growing inside her, and I couldn’t be more excited about my pregnancy. So when I slip into [my character] Lisa, I’m at odds with this thing down here,” she said.
“It’s something that I think that she at certain points really questions her decision to keep it, which couldn’t be further from my own life. So it’s a weird, strange, strange thing, especially when he kicks during a scene, you have to go on as if this thing didn’t just move inside your body. So it’s bizarre,” she added.
Zach Gilford and Kiele Sanchez wed in 2012 following a two-year courtship.
