"Playing a drug addict was challenging, especially since it was an alien drug. I spent a lot of time talking with Kevin Murphy (the show’s creator) and Michael Nankin (the episode’s director) about the physicality of a person addicted to Adreno. Once we were clear on that, I started watching videos of people high on drugs, specifically opiates. All the videos were very graphic, it gave me direction to play Amanda, although it also left me feeling very raw." -Julie Benz
