She adds that “before we started shooting, I sat down that weekend and I wrote Sara’s story from start to finish. Where she was born, who her mother was, her relationship with her mom, what her fears are, how she met Nico – everything that made Sara who she is in order to bring her to life.”

“We got together that weekend, that Saturday, and we spent the whole day bringing our love story to life: the first moment Sara and Nico met, the thing about Sara that made Nico fall for her – someone he’s never seen, only someone he’s heard through the door,” she continued.
