“I spend a lot of my free time with Stephen, too, so, getting to work with your friend is the dream. You’re super, super blessed if you find yourself in that realm where you get to work and play with the people that genuinely your heart connects with. And honestly, our friendship is the reason I think they end up together on the show because we do love each other.

"We have a really beautiful scene in the S6 finale & it meant a lot to me because Emily came up to me afterwards and said that ‘If there was no other scene throughout Season 6 that scene would have made it worth it for her. So that meant a lot to me, cause clearly it meant a lot to her. I think people will enjoy that scene, even if it’s a little sad."
