Meanwhile, Amy told press about her new project: “What I’m looking forward to in this new show is finding the smaller moments. I’m really looking forward to playing a character that I can settle in with and kind of turn the volume down a little bit and get really specific and really real and allow myself to be an actor a little bit more. I really like this character. She’s really distinctive and funny and disillusioned and all those things that make a comic-tragic lead character.”
