‘I had to have a tube in my mouth and it was filling my mouth with disgusting chunks of food and I don’t even know what, and then I had to hold it in my mouth while the scene was happening and act as if it wasn’t happening and then throw up everywhere,’ she said of the scene. She also mentioned a scene from the series’ eighth episode in its second season, ‘All My Life, My Heart Has Yearned for a Thing I Cannot Name,’ in which ‘Cassie goes up on stage and ruins her sister’s play.’ Said Sweeney: ‘I have terrible stage fright and there was an actual audience in the auditorium that we built.

I was a teenage girl, too, so I definitely relate to her, but most of my characters I try to be vastly different from.’ Sweeney said that as a performer, she doesn’t find herself needing to connect personally to the characters she portrays
