She said: "I think those first couple, the sixties, were the most challenging because it's the most foreign you know, it's so stylistic, it's so specific. Not just to the shows, it's modeling itself after the sets that we were on, which are the real sets of those shows you know. It's sort of, you know, etched in, in sort of the social consciousness... It's just a very heightened type of the way that they talk, the mid-Atlantic, the way women had to be.

"And especially the sitcom women, you know sitcoms are a heightened version of reality anyway but those were like extra. So like getting the non, being grounded and yet being this other person and another, you know, there's just layers. Am I making any sense? I'm just peeling onions all the time."
