Cressida Cowper & Jessica Madsen Have A Few Things In Common

When asked how she can resonate with her character and find similarities with her own life, Jessica said,

I do have other siblings, but they’re much, much older than me. I essentially grew up as an only child. I understood Cressida’s world when it came to that. But I had an awful lot of friends around me, and I was very lucky.

She added,

I don’t think she has a full understanding of what love really is, because she’s never seen love between her parents. Love isn’t necessarily in her vocabulary. She grows a love for Eloise as a friend, so hopefully, in the future, there’s a chance for her to find love.
