As a producer on , did you feel like you were just constantly running around, too? Even if I’m not being a producer on the show, I’m running around. But, yeah, when I was on especially, when I was producing, I was just involved in every aspect of it: making sure that the set for the next scene was ready, or, you know, discussing wardrobe or the scripts.

Sometimes you need to date a loser to appreciate the good guy. Do you think best friends’ exes are off limits IRL? If it’s like, “Hey, I know you dated this guy when you were 14 and now we’re 28 and met on Facebook…” You know, there’s obviously a big jump there. I think there’s just such a beautiful marriage of moments from season one, and the simplicity of getting to know a character all over again.
It can be circumstantial, but it can also be a big no-no. It’s that experience that everyone has from season one of getting to know these characters and it’s from a whole new perspective.
Appleby began her acting career at the age of four, starting with advertisements for various products such as Cheerios and M&M's.
